Review SummaryThis was my first experience with cruising although I went with 5 other people who have been on numerous cruises. We were on the Jade leaving from Venice to the Greek Islands. I did enjoy the Freestyle dining and overall the food was very good. The specialty restaurants were expensive and our experience with the one we went to on the last evening (Steak House) was extremely disappointing. It cost $50 per couple, the steaks were horrible, and the service was really slow. Part of the problem was several people ordered several appetizers but for not being full, it was really much slower than the free restaurants. The coordination for leaving the ship on the islands was very well organized. The excursions offered I did not participate in since they were sooo over priced! We were able to get transportation (bus, train) for around 2 to 6 Euros to the sites we wanted to see. The only activity we participated in was bingo and it cost $39 to play. This was a theme - overpriced for anything not included with the cost of the cruise.

Pros: Coordination of getting off the ship, food in the Freestyle dining, entertainment show with acrobats/flying silks, staff.
Cons: Cost involved with everything once on ship. Wine, drinks, excursions, even $39 to play bingo was dissapointing.
