April 2015 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Mediterranean
My wife and I recently returned from a seven-day cruise on the Norwegian Jade (April 18-25, 2015). We enjoyed our experience very much. Our inside cabin was small but comfortable and everything worked properly. Our cabin steward always had it prepared and we enjoyed the folded-towel animals each evening as well. Food aboard the ship was good in the buffet restaurant, Asian restaurant, and the two main dining rooms. Service in the main dining rooms and the Asian restaurant was good also. The activities were quite well organized and enjoyable, and the cruise itinerary offered one delightful location after the next. All of our shore excursions were very good, and we were quite lucky with the weather as well. I would rate the ship and its crew on a par with Royal Caribbean, and it's overall ambience superior to that of Carnival. Celebrity is perhaps a half notch above NCL, but for this trip, the choice of dates and itinerary made the difference in our choice of cruise. We were very pleased with NCL and the Norwegian Jade.
