Norwegian Jade

September 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Beautiful ports, comfortable ship

Favorites: Ship staff; food choices; great shower in cabin; high quality entertainment (though heavily oriented to pop/disco); quiet hallway due to being in front of ship and very few kids on ship.

Less satisfied with: constant emphasis on selling (tours, art, shops, raffles, drinks, etc.); minimal educational content about ports, other than as part of selling tours (other cruise line had educational seminars before each port that were then replayed on TV); despite the few children on board, most movies in English seemed to be aimed at that audience (Angry Birds, Jungle Book, etc.); prohibition against bringing liquids on board (only diet soda was Diet Pepsi which is awful, while other drinks were heavy on sugar); buffet area was always very crowded and quite noisy.

Worst disappointment: insufficient incentives for back-to-back cruisers (incredibly slow wi-fi used up the "free" minutes in first week, no extra excursions for second week) despite constant email bombardment with offers to get 2-5 freebies per cruise.  The few dollars saved by buying back-to-back didn't compensate for the lack of incentives for the second week.

Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - Expect to share tables with others in the buffet due to over-crowding. Not all bad as you get to chat with folks from other countries, most of whom speak better English than my Spanish & German.
