Greek Isles & Turkey from Venice
Sail Date: May 05, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
We left out of Venice and the ports were great. We especially loved Turkey. The room was OK. Normal interior cabin. The ship overall was warm. The only area I was comfortable in was our cabin. The temperature in the dining rooms were HOT! The food was average to terrible. The menu only varied a few items. There was never any lobster or any speciality items. They want you to go to the pay restraurants. We had first off during disembarkation. Our luggage was not there. We consulted the staff immediately and all they could tell us was our luggage was coming. 30 minutes later, we had an early flight, we were still waiting. The staff could only offer a lost luggage form and when we said we were flying to Budapest to catch a river cruise, they told us to wait because they could not get us our luggage and they were not responsible if we missed our flights. Needless to say I doubt if we will ever go on a Norwegien cruise again!

When our luggage was lost on disembarkation there was no resolution. Only excuses! The rest of the staff was fine.
