16 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Barcelona To Houston)
Sail Date: October 29, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

while overall an enjoyable cruise, i had issues with 2 in the buffet area was usually lukewarm, and having to clear US Immigration and Customs in St Thomas (being the first US port of entry) was disastrous, as the island is ill-prepared to handle a shipload of over 2000 passengers/ took well in excess of two hours standing in line to be processed. Norwegian need to rethink this.
