After a challenging time getting out of the US due to snow in Atlanta we made it to Barcelona with a few hours to spare. We met a group of 62 in Atlanta that ended up flying to Rome and boarding the ship there. Check in (while crowded) was efficient. They worked with Delta to get one lost bag to meet us in Rome, which it did. Our room (a last minute upgrade from a mini-suite) was wonderful. Deck 10 looking off the aft of the ship on the aft/port corner. The fact that we got to eat breakfast and lunch at Cagney's restaurant was worth the price of the upgrade (which was not that much). Our steward, Ronald, and butler, Totaram, were both very nice and very attentive.
The ratings we have given on the ports are for what we thought of that stop. They are not ratings of the specific tours we took.
We found all of the Jade crew to be very friendly. Our favorite restaurants were Cagney's (breakfast, lunch and dinner), La Bistro (dinner) and the Blue Lagoon (lunch and dinner). We found the Grand Pacific to be pretty average and the buffet to be fair. We did not do much else on board other than chat with lots of nice people.
As to the virus that previous cruises reported, there was no sign of it that we heard on this cruise. After Athens, restrictions on serving yourself were lifted, though great attention to cleaning was continued.
