This is my 23rd cruise with NCL. But to be fair I have not cruised with them for about 2 years , as I was not impressed on my last cruise and changed to MSC for price and convenience, as I live in Spain, however I decided to go from Venice ... Read more

Sailed with NCL a couple of times before - once to Alaska (Norwegian Sun) & the same cruise to Greek Islands 4 years ago. The Jade is starting to look a wee bit tired and probably in need of a refurb - but overall a very enjoyable ... Read more

We chose the cruise because it was visiting Santorini and Mykonos. We read the reviews and although we knew the ship was not new, we were happy to book it. We visited Venice the day before the cruise and unfortunately the day was spoiled ... Read more

As a first time cruiser I didn't know what to expect. In the end I was pleasantly surprised. When you arrive at the port you will be directed to the check-in area. Remember to have a pen on you because you will need to fill in a ... Read more

The Jade is an old ship. There are far too many people crammed on it resulting it tremendous difficulty in finding tables at the buffet and sunbeds. The staff remove towels from sunbeds after 30 minutes if unused which may help to free ... Read more

This was only my second cruise (first for the rest of the family) and the last one was around 20 years ago so I'm not able to make much of a comparison. We chose NCL because they offer decent value for money in Germany as one of only two ... Read more
