This was our 13th cruise, and our first time sailing with Norwegian. We've been on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Costa before, and we loved Norwegian. This was a 7-day cruise and stopped at 4 ports: Cozumel, Roatan, Belize, and Costa Maya. ... Read more

First time with NCL. The room, (balcony) was much smaller than other ships we've been on. Nice shower, but lack of storage and counter/shelf space. The cabin steward must have been new, because we were always short of towels or washcloths. ... Read more

We had a nice week. Had to skip private island due to weather. Still not a big fan of Jamacia after years away. Grand Cayman was busy and the local say it's getting worse but you can't beat the water. It's beautiful. Cozemel was as ... Read more

We really enjoyed the NCL Jewel. This was our second NCL cruise and first on the Jewel. It was a large ship but not overly large. We never found ourselves bored or lacking activities. The food was delicious even though we didn't dine at ... Read more

Rooms were way more spacious that I expected, had lots of room for unpacking and storing bags. Every time we left them a mess and came back and they were clean. Walking down the halls was pleasant, because the workers in the hallways ... Read more

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 were very disappointed not to go to great stirrup, we were looking forward to it big time. I'm beginning to think there is something going on with norwegian and skipping gsc, and these "medical" emergencies that make them go ... 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

My husband and I LOVE Norwegian. We have sailed on the Norwegian Dawn and the Norwegian Getaway before. We've always had a wonderful experience and impeccable service. The Jade just didn't have it together on this cruise. Our cabin steward ... 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 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

My friend and I have taken many cruises with Norwegian Lines and the same ship The Pearl which is our favorite due to the spa area and the entertainment on board. I love the formal sit down dinning area. This cruise was mostly for the ... Read more
