Even though the Jade is going in for remodeling, we loved the old Hawaiian decor. We thought it was really elegant and not gaudy. Service was excellent. The staff remembered our names and greeted us everywhere. Grand Pacific main dining ... Read more

We had a fun time on this ship. It appears there is a TA crowd that we plugged into from cruise critic and we had a blast getting together on sailaways, a daily game of LCR which grew larger (and louder) every day, the cabin crawl and met ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Norwegian and the first freestyle one. We liked it very much. No overly dressy clothes to pack, just some nice pants/slacks, shirts/blouses did the job for dining. The rest was vacation clothes. However, ... Read more

Overall, our 1st bi-annual multi-generational family cruise was a really awesome trip. Here's my review-in the simplest possible frame of mind: 1) the cabins-midship, 10th floor, 2 inside & 1 balcony staterooms-all BIG for a ... Read more

This was a spur of the moment trip for us, and we the price was unbeatable, even for a balcony room. As this was to be our second cruise on NCL, we had high expectations. Our previous cruise with them had been wonderful (NCL Jewel) so ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise with NCL in less than 5 years, the first 16 were just wonderful so we were really looking forward to this cruise also. After this cruise I can say that the Jade is the worst, and not an NCL standard. Most of the ... Read more

The dining and excursions were fantastic. Dolphins, sharks, rays, and monkeys - oh my. Jade itself is a bit outdated. It was originally built for Hawaii use and has tacky Polynesian decorations only applicable when traveling there. ... Read more
