Review summary

we enjoyed getting away from the cold weather up north. I would book another Norwegian cruise if we were to cruise again. Some issues need to be addressed to get a better rating.

The Norwegian Jade was not ready for us due to the cruise before. only one bar was open the pool area was closed. they were off loading sound equipment. The state rooms were not ready so everyone had to sit and wait and could not get a drink. The staff were very tired and rude. Not a good start for a relaxing vacation.

Food and Dining

Food was plenty and easy to get to. the bars during the day were not. extremely long wait for a drink. When all bars were open at 5pm it seem easier to get a drink.

We left the ship on our own after breakfast. Very easy, not too long of a line at customs.
