Sail Date: July 15, 2016

Reviewed: 5 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

- Awesome itinerary with a variety of interesting ports

- Loved the quality of the shore excursions that included eating at authentic restaurants; great guides

- Jade is a clean and well maintained ship; excellent service 

- The buffet had a nice variety of food; menus in Grand Pacific were good

- Liked that promenade deck was not always crowded 

- The smoking was annoying.


Cabin / Stateroom
Good but the table on one side of the room beneath the tv prevented me from being able to walk around to my side of the bed. Minor but inconvenient. Otherwise comfortable. The newer toilets are much better than the ones on previous ships that stank. Space is tight in bathroom but adequate. Glad that they provided lotion again.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Generally good but Venice transportation overall is slow and disorganized.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Talks related to the ports (culture) would be nice
The shows (acrobatics in particular) were entertaining.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Promenade deck and the sun deck way on top were not used by the Europeans, so those were great places for quiet. The children seemed to dominate half the hot tubs all day. Because the Europeans tended to dine later, Americans had quick service in the nearly empty main dining rooms around 6 - 7 pm.
