This was my first cruise, so I do not have anything to compare it to, but we enjoyed this trip and I will do my best to review without having a comparison. We just traveled on the Norwegian Star, it left from Tampa and went ... Read more

We used PrimeTime shuttles to get us from LAX to the Best Western Plus in San Pedro. Nice hotel, clean, friendly and a good free breakfast. The hotel recommends an Italian restaurant and will give you a coupon for a free glass of wine. ... Read more

As the title states, we sailed each ship during it's inaugural season, and enjoyed each one to differing degrees. Norwegian is renewing it's fleet, which is great, but there appears to be a slight shift in their policies as well, so this ... Read more

Short summary - The ship is great, with a lot of smaller venues that could be ideal locations to sit with friends and hang out. Shows and activities are very tough to plan, NCL appears to be struggling with the large ship concept and ... Read more

We traveled in a group of 15 with the youngest being 10 and the oldest 70. We had balcony rooms and had an amazing time. My only complaint is that the common areas were too small in places such as the Medusa or the Atrium. The theater ... Read more

The ship is huge and beautiful. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food and drinks were great. There were many amenities but the lines were so long that we didn't even participate in some. There are 2 pools but both were small. One ... Read more

The cruise on the Norwegian Jade was the best cruise I have taken so far. I was slightly skeptical before boarding the ship because some of the reviews were shaky. The embarkation process was very smooth, and very fast. We boarded the ... Read more

Summary: Let me cut to the chase, by the time we left the ship, we had already booked two more cruises on NCL. However, that is not to say NCL and the Jade is without flaws. But for the money, my DW and I felt our 3/12 NCL Jade cruise ... Read more
