Our group consisted of myself, my husband, our 3 children and my 82 yr mother. We had a wonderful time on a wonderful ship with a wonderful staff. I know some folks like to ding the Jade for being worn-out, etc, but we didn't see that at ... Read more

Our second voyage on the Jade- some things are still great including the service, and the UBP. We like the full promenade deck, reasonably priced balcony rooms, functional cabin layout and bathroom and the consistent food. Having been on ... Read more

The wife and 12 yr old son wanted to do something different this year. We have cruised 3 other times (royal Caribbean, carnival, Holland america), so we thought why not try a Holiday cruise. NCL had a good special going on for this ... Read more

We booked this cruise with our friends (6 of us) because they were offering the free drink package for the first two guests in the cabin. It left out of Tampa which the town was beautiful but the cruise terminal was terrible! The check in ... Read more

Flew into Tampa the day before. Stayed at TownPlace Suites Westshore that offered free airport shuttle. Used Uber to get to get to port. Embarkation was a little confusing, especially in finding the right spot to drop our bags off. Process ... Read more

I have been to the Eastern Caribbean multiple times so wanted to travel to Mexico and Central America. I am a history major so was very interested in seeing the Mayan ruins. I took a flight from RI to Tampa, landed and took a taxi from ... Read more

This was our first time with NCL. Overall, we were very impressed with the line and the cruise as a whole. We did the UBP and the UDP, and I am glad that we did. The drink package was nice to have for the duration of the cruise. It was ... Read more

There is on old expression about making the railroads run on time. This is the case with the Jade this trip as well as our last a few years back. It is a beautiful ship, with a real promenade deck that goes all the way around. It has ... Read more

Enjoyed the fantastic Haven suite 14012. Our butler, Walter was amazing! So helpful and professional. It was wonderful to come back to the room and see his smiling face; as if you were coming home. Benjamin, our cabin attendant was also ... Read more

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

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
