Beautiful Trip in Spite of the Ship

Chose this cruise for the marvelous places it was going at a reasonable price. That being said, IF we had not gotten the upgrade it would have been a very different story. We booked an outside cabin that would have ...

Norwegian Jade through Norweigian Fjords - a Must Do!!!

We chose this cruise, quite frankly, because it was the only cruise that had the size of room we wanted during the time frame we needed. We knew absolutely nothing about Norway, but had already done a Mediterranean ...

Nice cruise to the Norwegian Fjords

We have cruised over a dozen times. I have learned if you treat the cruise staff with respect - you will generally get good service. If you treat them like they are mere servants - you will receive lesser quality ...

Best one ever

Out of 17 cruises, 7 with NCL, this was my best experience. The Ports of Call along with overall great weather is what led to this conclusion. Weather can make or break your trip. Oh my gosh, we were 300 miles ...

Hamburg via the Arctic Circle

As many of my cruises have been with Norwegian's newer, larger ships, the Jade was a return to a smaller, more traditional vessel. That said, the ship has been recently refurbished and is comfortable and modern. It ...
