my wife and i had taken a cruise in early january,leaving from barcelona to italy / greece / turkey / egypt / malta,then returning to barcelona,around 14 days in all,and what a great time we had on the norwegian jade.
this was our 4th cruise,and it was as good or better than any cruise ship we have been on.from the friendly staff to the friendly friendly room service people,this was a pleasure of a holiday.the rooms were kept spotless,and service all round on the ship was great.
the food in the general eating areas was of a good standard ,with the occasional hot indian curry to savour,but the food in the specialty restaruants was to die for,cagney's was terrific,and the chinese was some of the best i have ever eaten,o.k you pay a little bit extra,but,your doing something special in your life.
the entertainment was of a very high standard,but i thought the final show involving all of the staff was by far the best,what a great laugh.
there were a couple of people who came on board with a influenza / gastro virus (detected by the ships doctor etc)the action the ship took to stop anybody from contracting the virus was nothing short of marvelous,even though it it meant the staff had to serve all food themselves (no self serve).take a bow ncl,with this action you probably saved the cruise.
the ports of call were excellent,along with embarkation and disembarkation both at ports,and starting and leaving the cruise.
take a bow again ncl norwegian jade captain and crew,god willing we will certainly cruise with you again.
thank you kindly
