Barcelona to Houston on the Norwegian Jade 2015

Sail Date: October 29, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

A great trip for the price.  Check in at the port in Barcelona was very fast.  The weather during the 16 day crossing was smooth except for a couple days before Madeira where we had 12 foot waves.  The weather in Barcelona was around 70 degrees and it only got warmer crossing the Atlantic. There was custom delays in St Thomas as those who were not American citizens had up to 3 hours wait in line to get their passport stamped.  This was done on board and  there were no announcements to NOT come up to the Spinnaker Lounge until the line shortened.  For those getting off in Miami there was a couple hours delay for those wanting to just go down town etc to be allowed off.  In Houston, we ere off the ship in 5 minutes, we took the charter bus to Bush Intercontentinal  which cost $50 each.  There is no cheap way to get from Bayport to the airport.  The main thing we saw on the ship was a shortage of Bus Staff in the restaurants.   Waiters were busy and tables sat for a long time before they were cleaned off.  The entertainment was super as Norwegian had a variety of acts.  We are taking the return cruise in April 2015.

Cabin / Stateroom Well even for a Balcony it is small, but the ocean view and inside rooms are even smaller. But having the balcony was very nice as we had the door open most of the time as the weather was warm and nice.

Tip

expect a problem finding a seat during peak times in the garden Café. The schedule for the Blue Lagoon is not clear, They do serve breakfast there on port days, other wise you have to figure out you have to go across to Moderno to get breakfast, there are no signage saying they are closed.
