Norwegian Jade

14 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Barcelona To Tampa)

Ship: Norwegian Jade

Review summary

Lunch, supper and snacks were great in the garden café.

Breakfast was too late, as heading West meant time changes often. There was no protein available before 6 most days , while people with blood sugar issues needed it an hour earlier every time change. (peanut butter, cheese, boiled egg)

Cruise director staff kept us well exercised and entertained.

Room steward for 4551 was the best ever ! She was cheerful and helpful no matter what...... (missing Bermuda which meant too many sea days in a row; rotten USA election results, extremely long  immigration in Miami for Canadians in 4th floor returning to ship )

needed protein at breakfast earlier after each time change

Onboard Activities

Daily walk a mile, progressive goofy golf, shuffleboard, and trivia were a lot of fun. I loved the dance fitness, but it was too fast paced for me.
