The entertainment and lack of was appalling. Some shows were repeated and several of the show were not worth the time to attend. The lack of activities proved out to create a very boring week and could not wait for it to be over. The ... 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

This cruise was half the price of other cruise lines sailing basically the same route on a 20 to 22 day itinerary. We also wanted to see Florence & Rome so we visited those cities ourselves after the cruise. The Shore ... 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

I wanted to get to Italy by ship from Miami so we choose NCL Jade April 19, 2016. This is the ugliest ship I have ever been on. It was the old Pride of Hawaii and they never did any renovations. Plastic flowers on the ceiling, dated ... 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
