Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Poor food/great excursions

Had done Norwegian and the Panama Canal 4 years ago. Loved it and expected the same this time.

THE GOOD:

- Boat was on time every port and left on time.

-Excursions were usually on time or at the very most 5 minutes late.

-Excursion were excellent except in Istanbul where we had an excellent guide but "whispers" were

horrible and had to stand right in front of her to get information.

-Loved the two day tour in Istanbul. Some locations were closed on one day but open another,

-House staff was super.

THE BAD:

-While pushing the speciality restaurants the food in the Garden buffet was really poor.

Lots of curry and hard to find a decent entree.

-In the Grand dinning room could only find two entrees I liked and kept having them for whole cruise.

-Appetizers not much better.

-For $200 a person we could eat in any speciality restaurant for all 11 nights and get very good food.

-No lobster night and if you wanted stake and lobster together in the speciality restaurant it

cost you extra.

-It was the little things they do for you on other cruises that we expected. Like coming to the table

to grated cheese on our Ceasar Salad.

-Felt like we were paying for the things we got free on the last cruise.

-Either got a real good waiter or one that seemed like they were in training.

-Did a back to back and Norwegian would not give us the same cabin for both legs.

OVERALL:

Very disappointed with Norwegian and unless it's going to a place we really want to go will not go back.
