Great cruise!

Sail Date: May 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

It was a great cruise experience\, with excellent ports of call\, entertainment\, food\, service\, and accommodations. We were new to the Freestyle cruising\, so didn't quite bring dressy enough clothes\, but still had a blast. Service was great. I do wish we would have had more time at many of the ports\, and we were disappointed with the extremely slow disembarkation process (which was communicated too quietly) the morning we left. We picked up luggage tags to disembark at 8:15AM and didn't get off the ship til at least an hour later.

Pros: Entertainment in the evening

Cons: the location and noise level of our stateroom

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Ship Quality
We were pleasantly surprised that at many times on this cruise ship we could actually feel alone... this was different than on previous cruises we have taken with different companies. It didn't seem too crowded\, and we never had to wait in line at the buffet. However\, on days at sea it was practically impossible to find a chair in the sun.
Food and Dining
We had to wait with a buzzer almost every night we chose to dine in one of the two free restaurants. Otherwise\, though\, the food was great!
Cabin / Stateroom
The size and cleanliness of the room was superb; however\, we were selected to stay in room 4501 which was was very loud due to its proximity in the front and bottom of the ship. We were awakened many times throughout the night as we were pulling into ports or as the engine started/stopped.
Service and Staff
We found the bar staff to be wonderful! They were very personable and made our evenings a treat. It may sound silly but I was disappointed to have not received more than 2 towel animals in the evening.
Excellent entertainment in the evening! The magicians and gymnasts made great shows\, and the on-board dancers and singers were great every night!
