Ship Facts: Norwegian Jade Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jade Deck Plans
Terrible cruise
The best thing about this cruise was getting off the ship! The ports of call were AMAZING! I cannot wait to go back to Europe!

After day 3 of the cruise my nhusband was looking for something in our room and said " it's like they do everything on this ship" and we said together "half-assed".

The food was average at best. The buffet was small and the same every day. The 2 no extra charge dining rooms had the same small menu aand the food was OK. It felt like they put ALL the effort into the restaurants with a "cover charge". Even then, the cheese they used on ALL foods with melted cheese, when scraped off the food cooled to a gelatonous glob. It was so gross. There was same spice used in all the sauced foods that made everything taste the same italian, mexican, japanese, french...all had the same taste.

We often joked about NCL's tag line of "free style cruising" since there was a charge for everything. On top of the $12 per day per person "service charge" there was a mandatory 18% gratuity added to everything plus a place on the bill to tip more of you liked. We bought pop packges on the first day. Because we didn't get charged for soda it was often hard to get served.

There is very little common space on the ship. Only 2 small pools for 2000 people, a small library, and small quiet room. Every other common area there to get out of your state room was someplace you were expected to spend money. The activities were half assed, and the entertainment was very hit and miss.

The beds were SUPER uncomfortable, so hanging out in the room wasn't an option.
