Jaded: Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by margate cruisers
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The decor of the ship was dark and somewhat off-putting due to the Hawaiian theme, which did not really play well in the eastern med!
We had a mini suite on the 11th floor which was excellent. It was convenient for everything and a refuge from our over excitable fellow guests. Jimmy our attendant was excellent.
We enjoyed RJ Red in the atrium bar but his voice would have better suited a more intimate More area. I felt it was disappointing that the observation bar seemed to be used exclusively for rather mundane game shows in seven languages. A quite gin and tonic would have suited better.
Check in was ok but a bit long winded. If you are in Venice already you can get the people mover train to the port from the plaza roma for 1 euro each.
We enjoyed the barbeques on deck and these happened three times.
The pool side facilities were however over run and it was very difficult to find somewhere to sunbathe without falling into the theme of reserving at dawn, which then led too inevitable conflicts.
Disembarkation was smooth. We took people carrier to the plaza Roma again and a 6 euro bus ride to the airport. This compares favourably to the excessive 30 euro per head NCL wished to charge. Also do not believe their scaremongering about no taxis, there were plenty awaiting customers.
We took Monarch flights from Gatwick, very smooth and much nicer than the standard budget airlines.
As a final point we were surprised with the small number of Americans and Northern Europeans on the ship and may in future sail from UK ports as we did feel the manner and courtesy of a number of fellow guests left a lot to be desired. Less
