My wife and I just returned from probably the best cruise I have taken out of 24 total. There were many reasons and I will address all of them. First, It amazes me all the passengers who have to complain about everything or something. The ... Read more

The Jade was an exceptional cruise with a nice ship and crew. The boat itself could use an update in the next few years but everything was very clean and there were no signs of wear. The cabin was an ocean-view with a porthole (nothing ... Read more

Have had consistently good experiences with Norwegian and loved this unusual itinerary. There were four ladies in our balcony cabin and it worked okay with two single beds, one pull-out couch, and a bunk that dropped down from the ceiling ... Read more

We really like NCL and the overall feel and atmosphere. Good food, decent production shows and friendly staff. The ship was very clean, and even the public restrooms were kept very clean and fully functional. Food was good and very few ... Read more

We chose to cruise on the Norwegian Jade out of Tampa as we have friends in that area who were traveling with us. Embarkation and disembarkation went fine. The ship was somewhat out of date but was not an issue for us. Our cabin was ... Read more

My wife and I have taken numerous cruises but this was our first on Norwegian. We heard a lot of good, but had to find out for ourselves. The Jade is a clean, smaller ship and we liked it a lot. We have tried the new mega super ships ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise and we didn't choose it; we "crashed" my sister's vacation (she and her husband are awesome to travel with!). We didn't travel with children and we stayed in separate cabins. My sister in an ... Read more

I booked this cruise in April of 2016. Never sailed on this ship before but found it to be quite enjoyable. The staff was extremely helpful as I was travelling with someone in a wheelchair. The room was a good size for our needs but ... Read more

This was my third time on the Jade and it has become a bit outdated on decor and layout. The layout I will admit is one of the most awkward of any ship in their fleet. Le Bistro is tucked away and can be easily missed just walking by it. ... Read more

We have cruised Norwegian many times, but it will be a long time before we take Norwegian. The Jade is a little dated and I understand it is supposed to go in for a make over. We had a mini-suite on Deck 11. It was spacious and we had a ... Read more

Booked this cruise for myself , my wife, and our son who celebrated his birthday while on the cruise(27th birthday). I have been on one other cruise with NCL in 2012. Since then we have gone on Carnival and from now on we continue on ... Read more

This was our second western Caribbean cruise, but the first with extended family. Coordinating the larger group was a breeze and the iConcierge app made keeping everyone in touch nice and easy. Our stops in Cozumel, Costa Maya and ... Read more

A family group of 8 with members aged 19 to 75 decided to do a trip together for Thanksgiving. While we got a reasonable initial price, everything else required additional cost. Having done primarily river cruises I much prefer the smaller ... Read more

Norwegian Jade had just arrived in the US after a summer Mediterranean season and apparently is showing its age. The ship is scheduled to go into dry dock in early 2017 and that will not be a moment too soon. Since its entry into service ... Read more

It is hard to compare a 93,000 ton older ship to their 155,000 Getaway/Escape/Epic ships but having been on all of these ships we feel that NCL delivered a quality cruise within the constraints of a smaller ship. We felt the food in the ... Read more

Specialty dinner package was awful at LaCuchia and Le Bistro. Excellent at Cagneys and Tappanyaki. Steer clear of the first 2. How the dinner experience can go from inedible steak to steak you can cut with a fork is beyond me ... Read more

Before travelling with NCL for the first time, I checked the reviews on the Norwegian Jade which left me somewhat apprehensive in view of the negative comments from several people. Of course everyone has the right to their opinion and I ... Read more

Just returned from our 7 day thanksgiving cruise on the Norwegian Jade and thought I'd submit my review. We've cruised with Norwegian 4 other times, the last time being in 2009. We stopped cruising on Norwegian because over the 4 years ... Read more

This was a last-minute deal/decision. After having a AWFUL experience on NCL in 2008 we'd sworn never to use them again. Change a leadership and some good reviews recently prompted us to give them one more try. Unfortunately it wasn't ... Read more

Took a cruise with my son and his wife. Always get a window cabin but this was much smaller than usual. The bathroom has a bad layout with the toilet in the small closet space we all hated. Got the three dining package and was ... Read more

I am an avid cruiser. Have been on the majority of the popular lines multiple times so I do have a good bit of ability to compare. I am going to review on topics that are of most importance to me and others who sail with families. For some ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers...wanted a relaxing get away...this was not the case. We left port at 7:25 pm due to ship repair...understandable, but no communication from bridge. Casino did not open until 10:25. Spent over 45 min. To first ... Read more

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
