Norwegian Jade Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
This was my 14th cruise so I have a lot to compare this cruise to. The good: the staff was very attentive and courteous, the ship seemed clean, and the entertainment was good. The bad: The pools were freezing cold (there were only 3 or 4 adults in the pool at any given time) and the dining room had inferior food and service. There are many specialty restaurants on this ship and am wondering if this is by design to encourage you to spend more $ in the specialty restaurants. We landed up eating at the buffet most nights. The food was way superior but that's not why I cruise. Love the whole dining room experience.
We were the first cruise ship to visit Harvest Caye, their new private island in Belize. It was very well laid out in a Disneyesque sort of way - lots of things for kids of any age including a huge pool with many lifeguards and an awesome splash pad. The nature preserve is not completely set up yet since there was one lone toucan, but I have hopes it will give everyone a glimpse of the flora and fauna of the area. There are lots of other activities offered as well. Food may be purchased on Harvest Caye as opposed to the lovely free cookouts offered by other cruise lines.
