First time NCL Jade: Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by Otsego
Overall Member Rating
First time NCL Jade
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
The Jade has a number of specialty restaurants from Japanese steak house to French bistro, and we ate in the Italian restaurant one evening. We were very impressed with the food and serving there, too.
I could go on and on about the staff - the matre-de, the bar attendants, the main service desk, shore personnel, etc. - all of these staffs went out of their way to make sure their service met our needs! We were also selected to have dinner with the environmental officer one evening, and after the dinner, he invited us (3 couples) to join him for a brief tour below decks on our next sea-day. Great experience!
We used NCL for 2 shore excursions - in Monte Carlo and Valencia, Spain. We found both excursions to be interesting, with knowledgeable tour guides and reasonably priced.
Our one drawback from the cruise was our balcony cabin. It was among the smallest we had encountered on previous cruises, and the bathroom area was poorly designed. Less
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
Best cruise ever!
