Norwegian - You get a cruise and that's about it
"Entertainment I cant believe they have even stripped out the heart from my favourite theatre shows but they have managed to do that also, where has the classic 'Norwegian Way' or the 'We are Norwegian now' song gone from the Elements show?Norwegian was always one of my favourite cruise lines and i have sailed on the Norwegian Jade many times previously however, this time i think the word Jade was appropriate as it was all a bit jaded...."Read More

This was our first trip to Greece. We have done other NCL cruise in the past. One of the most noticeable first thing was the Cruise was not completely full. There was probably more staff than the actual guests. Which was great! We had their personal attention all the time. Only one problem for me to not give 5-stars. We had a special dietary need requested but they failed miserably to make ...

We travelled as a couple with another 3 couples and had lots of uncertainty before travelling due to Covid but once we got to Athens and had our pre-board test it all went very smoothly. Boarding was very easy. The whole ship felt very clean and safe. The staff were amazing and continually reminded you to wash your hands and wear masks whilst walking to your table in the restaurant and when ...

Not sure how fair this is going to be to the ship, as it was my first cruise, so I have little basis for comparison. But this was my take, for what it's worth. Room - Was very nice, we had a balcony room on the 10th Deck. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom however is painfully small. I had to walk in sideways to the WC and shower. And I was constantly bumping into things. WIFI was not ...

A group of us made reservations several months ahead when our agent notified us of a good deal on one of the initial cruises resuming after COVID. As the time grew closer, COVID reared its ugly head and changed some of the earlier policies concerning flights requirements and mask wearing on board. Several of us canceled, but we were glad we went. Our included flights kept changing and our group ...

As experienced cruisers on different cruise lines this trip was a test to see if cruising is like before Covid, and it did. The Jade was very clean, lots of Covid related measures (wich we loved) and lots of staff made the trip safe and very pleasant. The ship was round or about 60% filled, so all the space you wanted. Entertainment was like before Covid, all restaurants were open with social ...

Two cruises had been cancelled before we finally got to go on this one. My NCL agent booked us into an accessible cabin - it was aft and it was GLORIOUS. But let's start at the beginning. Getting to Athens had its fair share of panic and anxiety - so much paperwork, so my i's to dot and t's to cross. We had it all, fully vaxxed, PCR test, Passenger Locator Forms, all the regular ...

We absolutely loved this cruise because it concentrated only on Greece with all it history and uniqueness. We were able to see best parts of the Greece and enjoy the comfort of the ship. We visited 6 major Islands, Olympia and spend a few days in Athens after cruise. Our only wish was better port hours because each island has it's own beauty and we wanted more time to explore them. ...

Itinerary: Most of the main Islands in Greece or popular with tourists. Crete and Korfu were interesting new places Ship: Nice cabins, by the end of the cruise the windows were crusted and couldn't see through. They need to clean Food: Typical cruise ship food. Many items not as good as you can make at home. Example: carnitas tostada appetizer - 3 dorito chips with beans and very little ...

We just returned from a 7 day cruise of the Greek isles on Norwegian Jade. Overall it was a excellent cruise. The Covid protocols were relatively easy. You get tested for Covid before boarding (results in 20 minutes) and tested again the last evening of the cruise. The crew were excellent and very happy to be working again. They said this was only the second cruise since they re-started. ...
