A very relaxing cruise to places that we may not have gone. Our trip itinerary was changed due to the hurricane damage at the original ports. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring these new places. The ship's staff was very friendly and professional.
Very disappointed overall. Children using the adult only pool and hot tubs. Officers walking around did not ask the children to leave. The food could certainly have been much hotter, lukewarm at best. This was mainly at the buffet. Would think long and hard before travelling with Norwegian again.
The main problem I had with this cruise line is that they took out elegant night and lobster night. I also did not like that they switched the itinerary and did not offer and alternative in case we did not want to take this cruise. I travel for the ports and I have already been to the ports we visited multiple times and I would not have chose this cruise if it was going to them. I chose this cruise for the original ports. I understand there was a hurricane and that is the reason for the change I just believe it would have been a nice gesture for the cruise line to allow us to cancel this one and rebook onto another cruise for another date. I did not want my money back I just wanted to visit the original ports.
We will do the Jade again. Very nice. Great ship layout and friendly staff. There are a lot of fun things to see and do both on and off the ship. THere are different music shows and many games and types of entertainment. If you just want to read a book, you can do that to and have quiet time.
Great cruise, wonderful food and beverages. Nice to go with a group of friends to share the fun and experiences. Enjoyed the casino and specialty restaurants. Glad we made reservations before boarding the ship.
A very relaxed cruise experience as my wife pre-loaded for me many e-books and I did finish 3 books in this trip plus went for 10 nightly shows in 11 nights on this ship. Said before this ship had great shows that converted me from a show sleeper to nightly watcher, thank Norwegian!
Great vacation for anyone especially senior citizens
You can enjoy yourself without much effort. The food was great. The specialty restaurants were outstanding. Entertainment was superb. Spa great evperience. In general it was an ideal vacation.
The cruise itinerary was excellent. Staff, for the most part were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The ship was very clean in all areas. The food was very good to excellent. The only problem in regards to food was that as we neared the end of the cruise it became evident that various food items were becoming scarce...ie fresh fruit at breakfast, limes at the bars and a few other minor products.
There have been some noticeable changes in service and food service since we last cruised with NCL almost a year ago. Service was satisfactory but at a lower level than what we experienced on other vessels. The itinerary was outstanding. Weather was picture perfect. No problems whatsoever with the ship motion/rocking. We plan to do another cruise in the near future but the selection will be influenced by the specific ship as well as the itinerary.
Great cruise. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting a lot of European people. European people outnumbered Americans by about a 2-1 margin. Understandable since it originated in Europe. Ship was great and itinerary was highlighted by Iceland and Ok after that.
Destinations were scenic but just ok (except for Edinburgh-that was very nice, although the price of the "Edinburgh on your own" bus was too high- better off with a taxi next time)
Great staff. Well run ship. We had lots of fun. Miss them already!
