Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Busy, busy, busy
First of all the downside. On arrival at Venice Piazzale Roma no directions to the cruise ship and nobody there to advise how to get to the cruise ship. Got to the people mover and again very little directions. Had to lug the suitcases in 36 degree heat to eventually find signs for the cruise ship. The check in procedure went well as we were latitude members, but that's when it all finished. given a ticket to wait embarkation but no seats.

Once on-board what happened to the welcome drink that you used to get, is this another cutback? Went to cabin and then went for a coffee upstairs, MOBBED. You could not move for people gorging on the food available and no seats to sit down. Moved to the pool area and could not get any sunbeds anywhere, this was the same all cruise. People would mark!! the sunbeds with a towel and then go off for a walk or something to eat, did not appear that any crew member bothered about this and on sea days it was just the same.

Now the good points

Crew excellent, very attentive but sometimes a wee bit on the hard sell of things to do or buy. Cabin stewardess was wonderful. The cruise director Gary was the best on the seas (as you can read on other reviews from other companies)The NCL entertainment was worthy of a top show in London or Broadway fantastic. The food in the main dining room was excellent and a great choice. The Asian restaurant was fantastic and well worth the extra. Papa's Italian was very good and the Sushi bar, wonderful. All in all a mixed feeling about the cruise
