This was our 5th cruise. If it would have been the first, the other four would not have happened. Not that it was that dreadful - it was more like. Done that now. Fine. Don't need to do it again. The problem is the design of the Epic. ... Read more

Embarkation went pretty smoothly and they managed the crowds pretty well. It obviously takes a while to load such a large ship, so I was prepared for a longer line and pleasantly surprised how quickly things moved. Disembarkation in ... Read more

The Jade and its moderate size was perfect for the ocean crossing. Embarkation on Barcelona was smooth but with long lines, taking almost an hour. The ship itself has a good flow plan and offers good food in all its restaurants, ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the great price and the ports of call. The Jade was ok but due for much needed updating. Our cabin 11593 was extremely small even for an inside cabin. We had the special dining package. Cagney's Steakhouse was ... Read more
