Verified Review
Greek Isles & Turkey from Venice
Sail Date: June 16, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The itinerary was great, and most of the on-board entertainment was really fun. The performers in all of the shows were great, and I was never bored. But, there were almost constant announcements over the PA in guestroom areas that woke me up in the morning and during daytime/evening naps (it was our honeymoon, we needed rest!). The content of the announcements was always unnecessary and repeated in 7 languages.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The free dining options were mostly really good. After the first day or two we figured out what we liked and there was great variety.


5 out of 5
The nightly shows were very well put together, and the special events during our days at sea were fun to watch (ex. the jazz band, Cole Porter's hits, etc)

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the cruise director and his close staff. Other staff/bartenders were annoyingly chipper and asked too many personal questions.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
There were only 2 pools, both were very small and crowded. It was impossible to swim laps or relax in the pool without people running into you.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was tiny, but the bed was very comfortable. It was too close to a hallway speaker so the room was very loud.

Cons: Constant announcements in the guestroom areas waking me up

Recommends Norwegian Jade? No.
