Food and Dining

5 out of 5


3 out of 5
The shows we saw were nice but nothing over the top. The events such as 'The Newlywed Game' were a little too corny and participation too restricted. And the dancing was too organized/controlled - shouldn't have a staff member with a mike trying to be funny - just play good music and let people dance.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
As mentioned\, too limited/childish for kids from about 9-12 years old. Teen program is good but nothing super special.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Condition was fantastic; as mentioned\, the poolside lounge area was too small; otherwise\, excellent.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5

Pros: We've always heard about the amount of food on cruises but we were pleasantly surprised with the quality also (we purchased the three restaurant package\, which helped with variety). All the staff was remarkably friendly and helpful.

Cons: Lounge area around pool too congested. Entertainment very limited for a 12 year old (not allowed to join Teen group and other activities too childish).

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
