Cruised on NCL Jade out of Venice on October 22, 2016. Three factors influenced our decision for this cruise... Santorini, Venice and price. With only those 3 in mind, this cruise was wonderful. But when ports, ship, staff, food, ... Read more

The Jade we were told is due for refurbishment in March. I have to say that her aesthetics were not what bothered our group at all. Let's start with the good: The evening entertainment was diverse and in most cases excellent. The ... Read more

This was our second time cruising with NCL. All flights and transfers went smoothly. Embarkation took quite awhile but understandable with 2002 passengers to process. Our luggage was in our cabin by the time we got there. We were in a ... Read more

This was our 3rd NCL cruise in the last 5 years and indeed the 2nd on the Jade. The funny thing is that we returned to the Jade after finding that the Epic was too big and lacked the personal touch only to find that the Jade had now lost ... Read more

As we were booked into a suite the embarkation was speedy as always and with the Venice airport only 1/2 hour away we were soon on board, unlike previous cruises though we had to wait to get in the suite until the general announcement ... Read more

We arrived in Venice 3 days before departure so that we could explore the city, so glad that we did have time to explore Venice. Boarding was easy and well organised, although we were one of the first groups to board our luggage was soon ... Read more

Just reading a few of the most recent reviews I do wonder whether some of these people were on the same ship! This was our fourth NCL cruise, but first on Jade, and we had a great time. Embarcation. We stayed in Venice for two nights ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise with NCL. Previously they have been excellent - providing a great product at very reasonable price. Unfortunately the product is now being repositioned at the lower end of the market. NCL acquired Regent ... Read more

We set off from Aberdeen on Friday 7th October, with flights via Amsterdam to Venice intending to arrive just after 4.20 to enjoy some of Venice before joining the NCL Jade on the Saturday. Flights worked well and we took the Alilaguna ... Read more

So with the changes that took place with NCL last year and the new CEO it was only a matter of time before things changed, but would it be for the better or worse. I am afraid to say that overall, since our last cruise in February this ... Read more

This was our fourth time on Jade so we knew what to expect. Embarkation was easy as usual, and our luggage was delivered promptly. Our cabin on deck 10 was clean and comfortable and our steward kept it very well. We have been on deck 11 ... Read more

Being new to NCL cruising, i wasn't too sure what to expect and was concerned 14 nights may be too long for dipping our toe into the cruise experience,but was very glad we did. The whole experience was great from beginning, flying out from ... Read more

This is a (very long) review of the 14-day Norwegian Jade Adriatic and Greece cruise that my wife and I took on Saturday Sept 24, 2016. This is actually two 7-day itineraries back to back, both round-trip from Venice, but NCL offers them ... Read more

We just returned from two weeks aboard the Jade. We were lucky enough to sail in a Garden Villa (14500) and while sailing in the Garden Villa no doubt increased our love of this vacation, I did sail on the Jade last year for two weeks in ... Read more

I sailed two weeks back to back on the Jade out of Venice, around the Croatian coast and Greek Islands. It was an absolutely amazing trip, both in terms of ports visited and the experience on board. I was little nervous about ... Read more

Firstly and this is very important, Norwegian are NOT from Norway; they are an American company with all the associated loudness, brashness and expensive charges you would expect, including 18% service charges on EVERYTHING! Our first ... Read more

As the title suggests this cruise was ok, but could have been so much better ....I felt like we were being exploited for the whole week. I appreciate these are cutthroat times for the cruise industry but please stop trying to rip off your ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian cruise line because of the relaxed dress code and the freestyle dinning. We had the premium drinks package as part of our deal and I can truly say its the best all inclusive drinks deal I have ever had. The food was ... Read more

Our second visit on Jade as we loved our Adriatic cruise last year. We chose the Greek islands partly because of the ship and some destinations that we had not visited previously. Check-in was very hectic as all computers had crashed, ... Read more
