We had very nice cruise vacation with Norwegian Jade. We have done over 50

cruises but this 1st time on Norwegian cruise line. Service was excellent and staff members were polite and nice. Our ports of call were interesting Venice, Malta, Mallorca and ending in Barcelona. As  the crown and anchor member and cruising most of the times on Royal Caribbean we compared the our ship all the time to for example to Oasis of the Seas were we went last transatlantic from England to Miami. On Norwegian Jade we missed open promenade with shops and spacious corridor but on Jade we admired the interior design and thought that it was more classy than Royal Caribbean. Absolutelly loved the various restaurants and had good old charm like feeling of great steamships.Our cabin was mini-suite with balcony and we were VERY pleased with it. We also bought a SPA pass to sauna, jacuzzis, heated chairs and relaxation SPA and we think that it was the most well spent 100usd/per person during the cruise. it was 6stars to relax there. Unfortunately we had to go back to Finland we would have wanted to go along the NCL JADE across Atlantic to Houston. It is almost impossible to say which one of the cruiseline is better Royal Caribbean or NCL both have so much to offer. We love them both and LOVE THEY ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!! see you again on another cruise in January! Martti & ANULoveWink
