We embarked on the Norwegian Jade on the 4th January having flown from Bristol. There were no Queues to register and we were soon directed to our cabin. We were pleased to find a basket of Fruit and a bottle of champagne in our cabin with chocolate dipped strawberries. The cabin was larger than we normally have and was immaculate thanks to Jonathan our steward.
We had a lifeboat drill an hour before she sailed.
The ship seemed a bit crowded at first while passengers found their way around, as we had sailed on this ship before it wasn't a problem for us and we soon found our way to the restaurant after lifeboat drill.
FOOD: Lobster was on the menu and the other choices were very good as was the service. We ate twice in the French bistro and the food and service was wonderful the ambiance was very quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of the large restaurants. In future we will eat there more often it is extra but is well worth it for the quality of the dishes.
We did not take any of the organised tours as we prefer to do our own thing.
One night the musicians got together in the Atrium and had a Jazz session it was excellent. In the theatre there were some very good shows. 4 Spanish singers singing Italian songs (similar to El Divo) A Cirque de Soleil show in which all the ships entertainers took part and of course the final night when the crews talent took part and a varied example of crew took part singing we are your home from home which always brings a lump to my throat as I know the cruise is over.
We were able to leave the ship at the time we wanted with no problems at all.
