Great time on the Jade

Room Type: Inside

We had a great time on NCL Jade.  We used the specialty dining package and loved eating at the different restaurants.  Fraizer from the Alistar Main Dining area was the best waiter and crew member by far on this cruise.  He was very friendly and personable and tried to make our vacation a vacation of a life time.  Many of the other crew members were pleasant too but Fraizer stood out.  We did have some crew members who were not as friendly and lacked that special touch.  The only complaint that I have is the room was even more tiny then any other interior room we have had before.  The toilet was at an awkward angle that because we are tall we were unable to sit on it normally.  Also there was much behind the sense noise heard during the night and early hour in our stateroom.  I would just recommend going up to a higher floor for that reason.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Very small. Smaller then any other interior cabin we have cruised with before. Also would recommend going to the upper levels as we could hear behind the sense noise of banging grinding and other sounds throughout the night and early morning.

Destinations and Excursions
Xplor park was amazing and I would do it again in a heart beat!! Loved that excursion.
The Ruins of Lamanai were amazing, but the people running the excursion were not good. The lady tour guide was rude and condescending. The male tour guide was fine but both tried to make fools of the group several times.
The scuba diving in Roatan was a beautiful dive, Anthony Key's diving was ok. I have dove in Roatan before and if you could get an excursion with Black Pearl Divers at Pristine Bay they were much better and the dive was even more beautiful. These 3 ports though are my favorite. Love them!!
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Didn't use.
The Rock show on Sunday was a little ronchy. We went to the 730pm show and had to watch the guys grabbing and spanking and even biting the girls butts and then some of the girls appeared to come from a stripper background with some of the moves they did including grabbing their whowho and what not. But the acrobats were mesmerizing and I could have watched them over and over. David Naster was amazing too. Great man and comedian.
Service and Staff
Fraizer from Alister dining area was fantastic. He tried hard to make it a vacation of a life time for us. Not many crew members did that. Thank you Fraizer!!
Food and Dining


The dining package is a lot of fun to eat at the different restaurants. Also fun to get involved in the different games and activities.
