We paid for a suite but couldn't even open the closet doors without hitting the bed. We thought we were going to Belize but instead docked at Norwegian's private island with very limited shopping and shore trips. A total waste of time, ... Read more

This was my first cruise ever, and there were four of us. We all shared the same room. We were trying to do this cruise inexpensively, but still splurge on a few things. I had read up about Jade and that it was the old "Pride of ... Read more

We were the first sailing out of Tampa on the Jade. I have only previously sailed the mega-ships, so I expected to have a more subdued trip and that is what I got. The ship is old and is set for dry-dock next spring. The dry-dock was ... Read more

Took the Norwegian Jade, first cruise out of Tampa after re-positioning. A week prior to the cruise, I called Norwegian to see if I could get an upgrade cabin. I was told there was a room left, told the location of the cabin and would be ... Read more

We had the worst cabin ever (4568) right by the gangway which ensured little to no sleep with all the banging around by nearly 10 staff opening the hatch and dragging the gangway into place, sometimes at 5:30 am. This is not their fault. ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and not sure of what to expect. The ship was very dated and is going in for a refurb in March so that is a good thing because I am booked on it again in September 2017. Embarkation was good, Disembarkation a ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise in 6 years all with NCL, most out of NYC, where we live. We had always wanted to make a transatlantic crossing and to visit Barcelona. We arrived a few days early to spend some time in the city, which exceeded ... Read more

The Jade and its moderate size was perfect for the ocean crossing. Embarkation on Barcelona was smooth but with long lines, taking almost an hour. The ship itself has a good flow plan and offers good food in all its restaurants, ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the great price and the ports of call. The Jade was ok but due for much needed updating. Our cabin 11593 was extremely small even for an inside cabin. We had the special dining package. Cagney's Steakhouse was ... Read more

Excellent way to get from Europe to Florida for not much more than the cost of an airfare! Free Drinks package & 6 upgrade restaurants inc in our deal made it a no -brainer. All staff were great, cabin small but well kept. All ... Read more

Just got back from a wonderful time on the Jade. We did a back-to-back starting with a 7-day cruise from Venice to Barcelona. That was followed by a 14-day transatlantic from Barcelona to Tampa. In 2013 our NCL Mediterranean cruise ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we were going with friends who had not cruised before (we have cruised twice both with Celebrity) and as she works in a school we were limited to school holidays. The itinerary was good and we enjoyed all the ... Read more

My wife and I LOVE cruising...this is our fourth cruise and the first on the Jade. Sadly, it did not live up to our expectations, possibly because of our previous two cruises on the beautiful, efficient, friendly Epic. The Good: We ... Read more

This cruise was chose based on the great itinerary. Weather was great for this time of year in almost every port. Having cruised with NCL before I enjoy freestyle cruising, however this time around NCL left a bit to be desired. We ... Read more

This was our 20th cruise and our 12th cruise with NCL so I guess you could say we are pretty much hooked on freestyle cruising. Wonderful two weeks on Jade, back to back out of Venice. She's still in good shape but can't wait to see ... Read more

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

We had an overall good experience on the Jade for our first cruise. We felt that the people on board were mostly older (45+) which could have been due to the time of year that we went on our cruise. We are a couple in our mid-late ... 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
