Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Why Choose Jade?

The reason we chose Norwegian Jade was for the wonderful itinerary which included Rome, Athens, Izmir (Ephesus), Alexandria and Malta.


Overall we found the cruise very relaxing and apart from the days in port for excursions we really did not do much except relax.


Norwegian Jade is a beautiful ship with nicely appointed public areas. It is probably one the cleanest ships we have been on. You can even smell the antibacterial spray wherever you go!


As for eating there are many restaurants to choose from however many did have an extra cover charge. We ate in the main dining area however we did try some of the restaurants including Cagney's Steakhouse and the Grill. The daily selection of food was very good and the buffet islands worked very well to feed so many people. The buffet did however get jammed at peak times so it is wise to go early or even go late and definitely try to avoid the times when the tour buses return. The food in the Chinese restaurant Jasmine Garden was also very good.


As for entertainment there was a lot going on in terms of quantity however in terms of quality there is definitely room for improvement.


We found the staff attending to us very friendly and our cabin immaculate and very comfortable. The air conditioning worked extremely well and our bed was very comfortable.


Our conclusion: A good clean ship with a staff that was friendly, professional and very efficient. We will definitely recommend Norwegian Jade to friends.
