As a first time cruiser I didn't know what to expect. In the end I was pleasantly surprised. When you arrive at the port you will be directed to the check-in area. Remember to have a pen on you because you will need to fill in a ... Read more

The Jade is an old ship. There are far too many people crammed on it resulting it tremendous difficulty in finding tables at the buffet and sunbeds. The staff remove towels from sunbeds after 30 minutes if unused which may help to free ... Read more

This was only my second cruise (first for the rest of the family) and the last one was around 20 years ago so I'm not able to make much of a comparison. We chose NCL because they offer decent value for money in Germany as one of only two ... Read more
