Garden Cafe

The Buffet was ok -- I felt as though the food was the same almost every single day -- yes there was some variety to some point but not over the top great -- but still liked the food.

Atrium Bar

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5

Cartagena, Colombia Did not visit port

Didn't get to see this port due to the Jade having mechanical problems from previous cruise and we stayed in Miami 1 day - which was totally fine!

Colon, Panama

3 out of 5
The locks were INCREDIBLE to see and watch! The City itself --- not so much! Very very very poor city and really nothing to do there at all.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

3 out of 5
This was an ok city -- nothing too special.
