Review summary

NCL Jade was a very good cruise ship. The staff were more than just doing their job. They were honest and fun. I would definitely seek out this cruise ship again, wherever they go. Make sure that you bring cash for additional tips above and beyond. They work very hard for it and it's well deserved and appreciated.

I've been on lots of cruises and this was very fast. If you get there early, sit down and relax a bit.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I have to admit that the buffet was very good with lots of different choices every night. The main dinning room provided great selections too but sometimes delivered it warm. I didn't go to any of the specialty restaurants but heard they were fantastic.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Spent most of my time relaxing but pools and everything was in good order as well as the bands. Definitely do a show or two.

Children's Programs

Didn't bring kids with me.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I can't say enough about this staff, from the Entertainment staff, bartenders (awesome) and the gift shop ladies and gentlemen. They made us at home and shared a bit of themselves as well which I'll always appreciate.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Super clean. I went to breakfast at 5:30a and watch the assistant head waiter walk the edges with a flashlight to ensure that nothing was missed. Impressive.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was the right size. My friend and I were not really bumping into each other. My only complaint was the A/C seemed to turn off at night and made the room very humid.

Ship tip

If you don't want to hang out with tons of College Kids, sail before March or in May!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

2 out of 5
Our excursion was cancelled and lost out on a $100 credit. The replacement options were not good enough.

Harvest Caye, Belize

4 out of 5
Long walks to center of area from dock. The staff there were very friendly although EVERYONE constantly asks for tips and you are reminded a LOT. The Mayan Temple and Spice Farm were very good. Felix and Shana were great guides! It was nice to talk to Felix and get more details of the culture and history of Belize.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Port was very nice and friendly. Did my own personal excursion with the local taxi which was 1/2 as much as ship excursion to the same place, the Mayan Temple. Had a great guide during the tour named Pancho.

In a blink of an eye you were off the boat and back in Miami.
