First cruise for this 55+ adult and thought I would be bored. I was wrong. Evening shows were first rate with a mix of on-board and commercial entertainers. Norwegian Jade Cruise Director (Gary Glading) was spectacular in breadth of knowledge, talent and class, kept the ball rolling and seemed to be everywhere. Captain Mikail ? is first rate with emphasis on passenger safety. Very easy to talk to. If you like technical stuff don't miss the "Behind the Scenes" ship tour.

Pros: Washy-Washy Girl, Magnificent Cruise Director, *ALL* Staff are Friendly, Good Shows, Always Something to Do

Cons: Shore Excursions Get Crowded with multiple ships in port, Having to Leave :-( . . . .

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Ship Quality
Emphasis on cleanliness both in public and crew only areas, emphasis on safety, openness of the crew from Captain to Cabin Stewards.
Food and Dining
Sit down restaurants were The Best. Buffet was very good but pastries could have used more butter (maybe it's a Euro thing). Would have liked free soft drinks - hard to justify $6/day so I didn't.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was spacious, shower had plenty of water flow and stable temp.
Service and Staff
Over the top. Crew is trained well to please passengers with a smile.
Think out of the box and open to new activities and you'll have a good time. Didn't think I would survive a week without internet but every day has worthwhile activities. Entertainment was PG-13 and much appreciated.
