Norwegian Jade

February 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jade

Awesome time!

Four of us in our 50s sailed the Norwegian Jade the week of February 27th.   We couldn't of asked for anything more.  The food was excellent both in the main dining and specialty restaurants.  Service was also very good both in the restaurants and at bars, casino, etc.  The staff are generally very friendly and accommodating.  We loved that they had a Reggae band rather than just a DJ. It makes you really feel like your in the islands. We did not do excursions through Norwegian but rather took taxis in Cozumel to Mr. Sanchos which was great. We had been to Cozumel before and went to Playa Mia which is also very nice especially if you have smaller kids who like water rides, etc.  We also took a taxi to West Bay Beach in Honduras. This was our favorite of the 3 ports. I was actually very surprised how nice it was.  Belize City was kind of seedy but we took a  ferry ride over to Amergis Caye which was very nice but a long ride (1 hour and 15 mins.). We were meeting friends there or would of opted for Caye Caulker instead which is a 45 minute ferry ride.  I will only be looking for Norwegian cruises in the future due to the drink and dining package which we were able to get as part of the fare as well as the excellent food and service, Kudos!

Brilliance of the Seas

March 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Poor Service during Spring break week

Service at the bars and main dining restaurant were extremely slow possibly due to the large number of Spring breakers. We were not impressed with the food compared to other cruise lines. I'm not sure how Royal Caribbean received the #1 cruise rating.  Our vote is for Carnival!

thedonahue's Tips

Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - The cafe outside at the back of the ship for breakfast was awesome.
Cozumel, Mexico - We did the Playa Mia Deluxe and with the Orbitz special was just about 1/2 price.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Went to 7 mile beach which is beautiful. I would avoid the public beach and pay the $5 pp charge for the Rose Hall Resort in hindsight. It was very crowded but could be due to the 6 cruise ships in port.
Tampa, Florida - We went to St. Pete Beach for 2 days after the cruise which is a great town and has beautiful beaches.
