Love to get out of New Jersey in January-February. Our dream cruise would take us to sunny, warm waters all of February. NCL fits us so well as we really like the free style dining and generally casual atmosphere. The Grand Pacific ... Read more

We just returned from the 12 Day NCL Caribbean January25-Feb 6th cruise. After a dozen cruises on Celebrity, we found this itinerary and decided to give NCL a try. We have always chosen the longer itineraries and this one seemed perfect ... Read more

We had a great time in all the ports on this cruise and liked the size of this ship and all the different dining options. The food was satisfactory, but the deserts were a little lacking except for Cagney's. The steaks and sides were ... Read more

Cruising is going downhill; too many specialty restaurants that you have to pay extra to get into & then pay for your dinner. The price of "Adult beverages" has gone through the roof. Because of these 2 things NCL is now ... Read more

We like to cruise out of Tampa so this is a cruise we realy wanted to do. I had read several reviews on Cruise Critic thatstated the Jade was a tired old ship and quite run down. Found that hard to believe since we have cruised with NCL ... Read more

We were on the Jade Jan 15, 2017 for a 10 day adventure that began in Tampa, FL. We arrived in Tampa the afternoon before and spent the afternoon walking and exploring the city. We stayed at the Hilton Downtown Tampa which was easy to ... Read more

Having cruised out of Tampa before, we decided that the 10 day E. Caribbean was a great deal through Casinos At Sea(NCL). We chose the UBP for $14 a day and it worked out splendidly! Check in only took 2 minutes in the CAS line. There was ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise with NCL over the past 12 years. It was the first time that we have cruised out of Tampa and embarkation wasn't a great experience. There seemed to be limited organisation around the exercise. For example, ... Read more

We like to take longer nights on a cruise so ten nights was just fantastic and a bonus our home port. We like NCL but will try any lines if going to the right places, this cruise went to all our favorite ports and the weather was perfect ... Read more

This itinerary and ship were new for us, and drive to the port not terribly bad. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, especially since we carried our own luge on and off. We headed right to our cabin to drop off our luggage, ... Read more

Overall it is good cruise. It met our expectations for an NCL cruise. We are platinum latitudes members. The biggest con was the food in some venues. Blue Lagoon has a horribly limited menu, and most of what they had was ... Read more

We live about an hour north of Port Tampa. Twelve of us went on this cruise. We contracted for Barracuda Transportation to take all of us to the port together. We would definitely use them again. We did our own thing during the day and ... Read more

Ports of call and length were what we desired. Enjoy the size of the Jade and look forward to another in future. Staff was good and tired hard. Really enjoyed time spent and activities with the folks from Cruse Critic. The cabin was very ... Read more

We have been on 6 NCL cruises (after trying Princess and Royal Caribbean cruises). We love the smaller boats versus the big ships like the Breakaway which lacks the smaller music lounge options. We love dancing in the Spinnaker which is ... Read more

We've cruised out of Tampa several times, and we really enjoy the port. Easy to get where you need to go, fast boarding (both Norwegian and Carnival, the other line we've cruised Tampa with). Jade is a very nice smaller ship. We prefer ... Read more

We originally had this cruise booked to depart from Houston, but after Norwegian pulled out we were left with having to change our plans. Unfortunately Norwegian didn't offer us anything for the inconvenience, but that is how it goes ... Read more

I really try not to be negative when on vacation, since there's no point to getting caught up in frustrations, but this NCL cruise was not up to par. The highlights were the buffet, the crew service, and comfortable rooms/beds. This ... Read more

As someone who has gone on multiple cruises on different cruise lines, I was excited about trying Norwegian for the first time and excited to go to Key West and Cozumel. I should have done more homework on the boat we would be on. ... Read more

Although the ship was clean, it was a disappointing trip. The food was dried out and tasteless. Several of the staff members were very rude. Lauro, my Room Stewart was great. Dr. Laura in the spa was also great. She was kind, professional, ... Read more

Gosh, where do we begin? This cruise was selected for friends and family, a party of 10 (5 cabins), as a post holiday season celebration. Many of us are seasoned travelers, including cruisers, and everyone one of us was extremely ... Read more

This boat is supposable getting renovated and it needs it. We were delayed due to fog for about 6 hours so we didn't get to go to key west. We went to Cozumel for 2 days on our 5 day cruise. They were tearing down the slide and shut ... Read more
