Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Great Cruise in the Jade 2 Bedroom Family Villa
This was our third time sailing in an NCL suite and our first Med. cruise. We traveled from Florida and had a great flight on delta. We absolutely loved the Jade. We were in the 2 bedroom family villa which gives you courtyard access. The second bedroom accommodates 3 people, but it would be tight. There is a double couch/bed and a cot that folds down from the wall. I can't imagine 3 people in the room, even if all were kids. The second bedroom has its own TV and bathroom with shower, tub and toilet. Plenty of closet space. It was perfect for our 13 y/o son.

The master bedroom and bathroom can be closed off from the living area with a sliding door. The bedroom is very comfortable with another TV. The bathroom is stunning with a separate tub and shower enclosure that have ocean view windows. There is another TV in the bathroom which you can watch while soaking in the tub. There is plenty of closet space here as well.

The living and dining area are nice and of course, there is another flat screen TV in the living area. The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the balcony. The balcony is small and cannot fit chaise lounges, only chairs and a small end table. We are accustomed to having a larger balcony, but with access to the private deck above and the courtyard villa with the small pool, we didn't miss the larger balcony too much.

Other than room service from the Blue Lagoon, we only ate one meal from a regular restaurant and we had it delivered to the suite by the butler. Every other meal was eaten from a specialty restaurant. We love Cagneys and Le Bistro. We ate in the Mexican retsurant and loved it. The only specialty restaurant we didn't care for was the Asian Shabu Shabu. It is a DIY soup with broth that boils on your table that you drop veggies and meat into. It was bland and later we got food from the Blue Lagoon because we were still hungry.

With the exception of the concierge, who we thought was unhelpful and unresponsive, service was great. The courtyard butler and room butler were fantastic. We only saw one show and it was good. The bands in the bars were so-so, but the DJS were good. A great trip and I can't wait for my next NCL cruise.
