Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Loved the Eastern Med with Jade
We loved this trip. We got lucky and the weather was really great overall even though it was Jan. 2 - Jan 14. Because the big holiday is Jan. 6, the traffic was light in Rome and Athens. Yes we made Athens although some earlier cruises weren't able to get there because of unrest. The holiday made it a bad day to protest. All in all, it was the perfect time to go.

The ship was as many have said. It's beautiful but the Hawaiian decor is out of place. The mini-suite was spacious -- one of the best rooms I've ever had on a cruise. It was a little too cold to use the balcony much on this trip.

We didn't use the pay restaurants and very much enjoyed the Alizar and the buffet was fine too. Yes, it's crowded in the day but I just went out to the back of the ship and ate outdoors.

We didn't see many of the shows. I saw the violinist and that was nice. Quite a wide variety of music. Then we saw Elements and that was quite a spectacular show. Definitely a very good show.

The best purchase of the trip for the ship was getting a spa pass at the beginning of the trip. The spa is beautiful and we hung out there most days. After a busy day of walking, how nice to have a hot tub and then heated lounger to relax those muscles -- while looking out the windows at the front of the ship. Very nice.

The ship was everything we needed it to be. The main star was the ports we visited for us.
