The Norwegian Jade chosen for its itinerary and convenient for dates of travelling. The balcony cabin was of a good standard but could do with a side table each side of the bed. the cabin stewards were excellent. The (washy washy) team made us smile in the buffet restaurants which started the day well. The choice of food was good for mass catering. But the speciality restaurants food could be improved for the price paid. The overall variety of entertainment was of a good standard with adequate seating in the theatre. The waiting staff were excellent with a good knowledge of the food that was being served. Some bar staff needed to know how to greet all customers even if its just with a smile. The shore excursions were all over priced for the trips provided. The scenic Athens and coast there was no coastline,poor buffet lunch which did not represnt the Greek culture and food styles, served by surly waiters with no customer skills at all. Some fellow travellers thought the warm acidic wine on the table was vinegar. The only good thing about the trip was the whisper headsets,which were sadly lacking on all the other trips which made it very difficult to hear the guides in crowded cities. If not taking an orgainised excursion the help was poor and no maps were available onboard for self exploration. Read Less

We started off with 4 days in Rome then did a half day countryside tour on the way down to the port. Embarkation was very smooth - dropped of luggage and only about 3 groups ahead of us in line. Communication beforehand was excellent. Ship: We had been on the Jewel a decade ago which is a sister ship so many things were similar. The casino was quite large (and had one of the better bartenders). Layout was good and everything was well marked. Cabin: We were a group of 7 (2 couples and 3 teens) and had two adjoining mini-suites with nice balcony's (they no longer are able to open up the balcony adjoining door) Room was nice sized and even had a tub. We had configured as a double bed and then they turned the sofa into a bed each night for one of the teens. They no longer do towel animals so had to find online pictures for the teens. Dining: We were not able to make any specialty restaurant reservations for our group of 7 before hand and were not able to make them on the ship either and there were no walk ups available so didn't get to try any. We were disappointed with the Jasmine Cafe - everything was breaded in the same breading which should have been on country fried steak, not sweet and sour. The two main restaurants were good though the food options did not change much over the 10 days. We ended up having most meals at the buffet (especially since there were picky teenagers) Good selection with a few special items each day but again not much rotation over the ten days. I expected a chocolate buffet night but either it didn't happen or I missed it. Breakfast at the buffet was always the right option since we did so many excursions on this trip. We are much more spoiled foodies then the last NCL cruise so nothing was impressive but all was good. Entertainment: We missed all the shows (but did catch a few movies) was nice to have the bands as background at the various bars only Bliss was to loud to have a conversation. The teens tried out Entourage but were to introverted to give a second try. Both the library and the game room were nice spots to hang out. We tended to pool / hot tub in the evening and often missed towel service (which ended at 8pm) which was annoying (maybe we are supposed to check out at the beginning of trip and keep until end instead of just get when swimming) The hot tubs were never overcrowded and quite relaxing. Service was great (except at Alizar restaurant where there was always a long wait for us between ordering drinks and anything else - often having to flag someone down to send our server over multiple times before we got them. I did get one massage at the Spa after to many days walking my hip wasn't going to let me do any more - got a deep tissue massage and was able to walk much better the next day - did have some high pressure sales for product and their acupuncture doctor which was annoying. The shop had everything we needed that we ran out of or forgot - overpriced and why do we have to pay 20% service change when not a 'service' but otherwise fine. Ports - great ports - only one (Santorini) that we needed to tender at. We did six excersions and most were great. worst was Pompeii where the guide kept forgetting how many people she had and had to go back to get people all the time when the company called her. Best was Lucca and Pisa. Would have liked a port map in the daily communications but was able to use my phone map. Kids: 13, 16 and 17 they all had a good time - loved the buffet and being able to wander the ship on their own. I expected better access to soda for the soda packages (had to go up to a bar to get a soda) and there was no lemonade which disappointed one of them. Disembarkation was good - though I would have liked to have the schedule options ahead of time when planning my transportation, we would have been able to sleep in a bit later. I will take another Norwegian cruise again, though likely a different set of ports since seen these and the ones we want to return to for in-depth says we want more then a cruise stop. Read Less

This was our first cruise, my husband and I. It was well deserved by us both and I’m happy to say it really delivered in almost every single way. We chose the Mediterranean Sea and the countries and islands therein as our first adventure. You will love Norwegian lines. The ship is immaculate with great attention to hygiene and public health which I appreciate greatly. Our stateroom was spacious, comfortable and a wonderful private place to spend time together. We were well attended by our cabin steward who was efficient and a gentleman. Food is largely great. Free style dining gives you choices and freedom of time. Our specialty dining choices were mostly excellent with high praise for The Bistro and Bliss and high marks for the Brazilian restaurant as well. The drink package was a great choice for both of us as well and believe me we indulged fully. Entertainment on board was varied and really fun. We had so much fun.Of course the shore excursions were the thing for me and Norwegian offers so many choices. Do chose wisely though because they will wear you out! Staff is Always pleasant, helpful and respectful. I have to nitpick in order to find any negatives. I can offer only two: the coffee and the internet reception. Fortunately there is a Starbucks on board and as for the internet it will be waiting for you at journeys end. I have wonderful memories. Read Less
