Great ports, not relaxing

Sail Date: June 16, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

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.

Cons: Constant announcements in the guestroom areas waking me up

Recommends Norwegian Jade? No.

Ship Quality
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
The room was tiny, but the bed was very comfortable. It was too close to a hallway speaker so the room was very loud.
Service and Staff
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.
Food and Dining
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.
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)
