The garden cafe had a little german beer garden port side that was quiet and friendly
Book a suite! The stateroom are a nice size if you can't afford a suite, but otherwise go for the suite.
The spa is wonderful and the views from it are amazing. Research before you go because sometimes expensive excursions are just a short walk from the ship. There some excursions they offer they you wouldn't think of. All but a few ports we were able to walk out of without needing a cab.
My advice would be to use another cruise company. We have sailed on Princess, Carnival and Royal Caribbean and they all have been much better than Norwegian.
The drink package was definitely worth it!
We loved dining at the Blue Lagoon. It was a smaller setting and usually very easy to get in to.
Horrible experience overall
It would been good to have a choice for pizza and Mexican meals at some point.
Great for families.
If you purchase a romance package prior to cruising print the package details and take it with you. At check in, they were trying to short us until we produced the print out with details. Then it was not a problem.
Never ever sail the Jade.
SPA and relaxation is so special
Don't go to the pool when all the kids are there. Wait, till later in the afternoon or early in the morning
You should not miss the crepe at the buffet and the desserts at Jasmine Garden. Leave space for daily lunch specials at the pool.
Make reservations at restaurants the day you get on the ship.
The restaurants need more vegetarian variaty
Always sign up for the officer dinner!!!
Try and avoid staterooms under the uncarpeted whiskey bar as heels on bare floor did keep us up at night.
Slip out of ship shows early to get a table in the Dining rooms.
I found that the Garden cafe had the shorter lines
