Sail Date: February 01, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship felt schizophenic. We were in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea on a ship that was completely Hawaiian...even with a statue of King Kamehameha in the main dining room and Hawaiian motif everywhere. Even the jewelry for sale was Caribbean rather than items indiginous to the Mediterranean area.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
We are vegetarian and we like the formality of the main dining room. Unfortunately\, for us\, that meant that every night (except for the last night when we had delicious eggplant cannelloni with the eggplant the shell) we had a choice of risotto\, penne pasta\, or spaghetti. Not what I would call specialty options.

We found that to participate in part of the activities\, you had to pay bingo\, etc. We thought the cost of the cruise should cover that.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our cabin steward was exceptional. He even left little \"towel\" animals for us each day. Charming and delightful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
No problems at all with the ship size and cleanliness was good except\, apparently on a previous cruise\, someone cut their toenails on our balcony and they were still on the balcony floor on our cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was very nice and well laid out. Again\, the decor was distinctly Hawaiian.

Pros: the staff were exceptional

Cons: everything we did had an extra expense

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
