Review summary

The Jade is a beautiful ship that you can tell has been recently refurbished. We experienced nothing that was out of order during the cruise. Overall the food, entertainment and crew were good with very little to complain about. Believe it or not the star of our trip was our cabin steward Denish. He was funny and friendly and did an outstanding job of taking care of the cabin. However, the Cruise Director and his staff were a little under whelming. They were adequate but nobody stands out to me which is not good. Cozumel and Honduras were fabulous. Costa Maya was fine.  Harvest Caye was a huge disappointment (see below). Tampa is a great port to sail from.

Food and Dining

The food was good but I am not a fan of Free Style Dining. It is a much better experience to have the same waiter at the same table each night.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It is nice to have a cabin at the very end of the ship because you always know which way to go. Norwegians cabins are small but functional and you spend very little time there. It was one of the best cabins I have been in for keeping light out.

Ship tip

There is a bar at the very back of Deck 12 that is seldom crowded and offers great unobstructed views from the rear of ship.
