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

Even though the Jade is going in for remodeling, we loved the old Hawaiian decor. We thought it was really elegant and not gaudy. Service was excellent. The staff remembered our names and greeted us everywhere. Grand Pacific main dining ... Read more

We had a fun time on this ship. It appears there is a TA crowd that we plugged into from cruise critic and we had a blast getting together on sailaways, a daily game of LCR which grew larger (and louder) every day, the cabin crawl and met ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Norwegian and the first freestyle one. We liked it very much. No overly dressy clothes to pack, just some nice pants/slacks, shirts/blouses did the job for dining. The rest was vacation clothes. However, ... Read more
