Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Great Holiday on the Norwegian Jade
Flew to Venice with BA from Gatwick. Quick and easy transfer to the port and on board lunchtime. Our cabin was ready on our arrival so we were able to leave our hand luggage there and go exploring. We ate lunch in the Blue Lagoon (open 24 hrs a day).

Having an aft facing balcony we had some fantastic views of the various ports and over the wake of the ship. Our Cabin Attendant kept it spotless, he was extremely pleasant and helpful. As we do not drink coffee he kindly gave us a kettle instead of the coffee maker.

Breakfast whether in the Grand Pacific or the Blue Lagoon was always served luke warm which was disappointing. We mainly ate lunch in the Blue Lagoon which was ok. We dined early (6pm) and never had to wait to be seated. The meals served in both the Grand Pacific and Alizer were very good and hot. We also ate at Cagneys Steakhouse, Papa's Kitchen and Jasmin. The meals were very good and worth the money.

We went to a few shows which were good and did our own thing at the various ports.

We really enjoyed this ship's laid back feel and the mix of different nationalities. All the staff we met were friendly and enthusiastic. We will be using NCL for our next cruise. We personally prefer free style cruising now we have tried it.

Disembarkation and the transfer to the airport was ok but Marco Polo Airport was a nightmare. It is a small airport and was packed. They only open the check-ins two hours before departure time

Overall, we loved the ship, had a very enjoyable holiday and will be cruising again with NCL.
