Beautiful ship! Good food and service. Didn't love all the ports. Athens is not a place I want to revisit. Croatia is it okay but probably not a place I would visit again. Santorini is wonderful but I had been there before, ... Read more

We were a family of 4 on our first family cruise from SA. We were in one cabin 4553, small but such fun. Our stay was made even better because of the service from our stateroom attendant Jessen, he was outstanding to say the least. Our ... Read more

This was our family’s first Adriatic voyage on NCL. We have been on NCL Epic for Mediterranean. But I did not give a review on Epic last time. In comparing to Epic, Jade is a smaller and older ship, but it is clean and very well ... Read more

Six of us joined the Jade to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We flew to Venice from Glasgow, and we were picked up and taken to the ship. The embarkation process took ages with lots of queuing and then eventually we got on board - our ... Read more

We went on this trip and stayed in Venice the day before to rest and tour the magical city, the next day we arrived in the port almost 5 hours before departure, we do this to avoid the crowds at check in, was fairly smooth, we are familiar ... Read more

We took this cruise because it was easier to get to the four Greek destinations by cruise ship. We have cruised with Norwegian before so we knew what it was like. We would say it was okay, but as a Silver level Latitudes member we still ... Read more

Once again NCL did not disappoint. The Boat itself is just big enough and had tons of things to do for everybody. It was well kept and very clean. Our room was made up quickly each day and turned down each night. The washrooms ... Read more

Our cabin was amazing (Diamond Suite) but beyond that the cruise line could use some work. Here are some tips for the future: They don't always have a bar open in the room that events are scheduled so we found ourselves having to leave ... Read more

I boarded on Tuesday, April 19th in Miami. The NCL Jade's transatlantic cruise had originated in Houston a few days earlier. Embarkation was the smoothest and quickest ever. As I understand only some 200 passengers boarded in Miami. ... Read more
