Great Cruise

Sail Date: June 16, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

Loved the cruise-we took our little boy with us for his 4th birthday and it was GREAT! We had a mini-suite and it was perfect size-would advise if taking children-gives them enough space of their own. The mini suite has a bathtub which made going back to the room to bath easier since he could still swim! The staff was amazing-everyone was outgoing and polite. For food we enjoyed had lots of fresh fruit and yogurt. Only big down fall was the buffet area would get extremely crowded and there was no seating at times-we usually ate in the kids corner at the small tables-which was fine with us.

Pros: Staff was so pleasant!

Cons: Changing the rules mid cruise with the deck chairs-should have started from the beginning.

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Ship Quality
I loved the ship because of the Hawaii theme. Our room was clean and had a great layout and we love mini suites and balcony!
Food and Dining
We enjoyed the food and the staff was very professional! Only thing that could be improved is the desserts.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were in a mini suite under the gym which I was not sure about but it turned out fine no noise problems!
Service and Staff
The staff I can't praise enough! We met so many employees that remembered our son's name and went out of their way to talk to us and him-made him feel special! Then because it was our son's birthday one of the employees (Maddie-from Miami) made a birthday card for him and gave him a small gift. She made his cruise so special! Thanks Maddie!
The shows overall were good. The flamigo dancers were not my favorite since I spent time in Spain and saw better shows there. But the couple Jacko and Maria were amazing along with the Earth Elements and the magic show! Those three our son loved!
Children's Programs
The children's program was Great! We only used it 2 times for 30 minutes each time but they are amazing with the kids. Again the staff at the children's program went out of their way to make our son's birthday specail! That meant a lot ot us! Thanks!
