Cruising, Boozing and Snoozing
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The food on the ship was first class, not one bad meal, and their is a good choice of restaurants. We had dinner in either the Grand Pacific or Alizar which are all inclusive, the menus are very similar but the choices are excellent. There are other restaurants if you want something more specific, eg. Chinese, Italian etc where you pay an extra charge. Food is always available on Deck 12 where we usually More had a bite to eat at lunchtime or breakfast unless we had it served on our balcony. Also a nice bar for an open air drink and you can eat outside as well.
The evening shows in the very impressive theatre were extremely good and there are two time options. During the day the entertainment was a bit lacking compared to previous cruises(possibly as there were a lot of non English on board it is difficult to please all the people all the time).
Trips ashore is always a personal thing but there are plenty of options on the Jade. We prefer to do our own thing and loved Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia.Only one or two grumbles. We prepaid what we thought were the tips,$91,but this is only housekeeping and restaurant so on every bar bill a service charge is added. Also some of the crew did not speak particularly good English. And, sometimes, the public areas were not as clean as they could have been.
Having said that, an extremely enjoyable cruise and would certainly cruise with NCL again. Less
