Average experience. Our reason for choosing was Tampa departure, drink package and gratuities included with our mini-suite selection. The martini bar was very well staffed but nothing special. Celebrity has ice bars. The cigar lounge was ... Read more

We have cruised with a number of lines including NCL before and took this trip partly due to the good deal, (as it was a repositioning trip for the ship to travel to Europe), and partly as we quite like the transatlantic crossings with ... Read more

It has been a long time since we did a long cruise (this one was 14 nights). Overall the cruise was good but we can see where cost cutting has changed the feel of this company's ships. We has a BD class of cabin with a balcony. The cabin ... Read more

While everything on our trip was just fine there wasn't anything that made us feel special or say, "wow." All areas of the ship were clean and the staff was polite and smiley. My 9 year old enjoyed the kids program and I ... Read more

My friend and I shared adjoining rooms on this cruise out of Tampa. It was our fifth time on the Jade. We had fun and we’ll book her again. Here are some of my specific thoughts: Hits Drydock Decor. Along with adding art ... Read more

We selected the Norwegian and the Jade for it's overall value, ports of call and time of year. We were delighted when we found out that it had just undergone a complete refurb three weeks prior to our cruise. The embarkation process was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a choice of what went out of Tampa. Royal Caribbean had an old ship for more $$$ or Carnival an even older ship. The perks certainly had something to do with it also. We had our daughter, son in law ... Read more

The ship was totally under staffed The food which you had to wait for wasn't worth waiting for. Cold most of the time. The bartenders or lack there of were rude and acted as if they didn't want to be doing their job. It took until ... Read more

My daughter and I cruised on the Jade, with a lot of wonderful people. The first day at sea, the ship felt very crowded. Open areas were full of drinking sunbathers. Our first stop was Cozumel, having visited this island on more of a ... Read more

My 2nd time within 6 month's on this ship & itinerary. The Jade is just the right size, not too large and not too small. Booked a suite the first go round and a balcony cabin this time and I must say other than the perks of the ... Read more

We just got back from the April 16 - 23 NCL Jade Cruise. The ship was just 2 week's out of a dry dock renovation. The ship was beautiful. They are still working to upgrade some of the furniture (chairs in the dining area). We started ... Read more

I'd never cruised before. I mean, I've taken the casino cruise out of Port Canaveral and the Spirit of Norfolk, but nothing like this. Our cruise left Tampa and took its time getting to Cozumel, then we cruised down to Costa Maya for the ... Read more

We chose to sail on the Jade as the cruise was leaving from Tampa, less than an hour from home. The easiest embarkation ever for me. I traveled with my 24-year old niece, who is like a daughter to me and was visiting from the north for ... Read more

We took this cruise with my family to celebrate college and high school graduations. The ship has just returned from dry dock with modest improvements. The NCL Jade is a medium size ship by today's standards. I enjoyed this sized ship ... Read more

Loved the refreshed interiors and updated public areas. The crew seemed re-energized and friendly. Only complaint was the Belize port of call shore excursions are now restricted to the cruise lines own property and favored businesses. This ... Read more

Embarkation was awkward. Ship staff seemed confused, sent us to the wrong line to check in, when we asked why there wasn't a line for the Penthouse suite they apologized, sent us to the suite line where we were told we were in the wrong ... Read more

Frankly, we picked the NCL Jade simply because their itinerary matched our son's spring break schedule. Fortunately, all the destinations were also new to us except for Cozumel. We were the second cruise after dry dock so it was not ... Read more

We picked NCL for this family cruise celebrating our patriarch 85th birthday because we had such a great time on NCL Sun for our last family cruise five years ago. The food in Grand Pacific (aft main dining room) was pretty good. We ... Read more
