Bad Communication and Financial Department

Review for Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - All

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

This was the Kid Rock Cruise, which the the Sixthman group did extraordinary stuff. NCL was horrible with communication. They took my credit card, charged it and then told me I didn't have a credit card on file, shut me off after I bought an unlimited beverage package and then did a "pre authorization on my account AFTER I had already setttled my charges, therefore totally deleting all funds on ...

Review for Caribbean Princess to Transatlantic

6-10 Cruises • Age 2020s

We got a brochure that had an excellent price and a time frame we liked. We also liked that we could fly to Houston non-stop. The tips were paid by Carnival so that was another selling point for us. We also have wanted to see Paris and this was on the itinerary. The shore excursions that we went on were wonderful. The train ride from Hamburg to Berlin was excellent. The restaurant where we ...

Have used princess on several occasions on repositionings instead of flying. Fact that I live in Houston made it very convenient eliminating flying. Room was as expected and itenerary was interesting including stops in Liverpool, Holyhead and Germany stops not previously visited. Biggest issue was I prefer smaller ships and Carribbean Princess is very large. There was an over abundance of elite ...

A fantastic deal was offered through Travels with Alan. It included all transfers, specialty dining and a beverage package. We could not resist. This was my 9th cruise and it was the BEST ! The ship is not as grand as some of the newer ships but it was pristinely clean. The venues were filled with fun people enjoying great music. The activity director offered a wonderful selection of things to ...

We had a blast on this cruise, before and after. Yes, the Jade is dated, but she is also do for a retrofit shortly. That said, we did not have any trouble with any systems in our cabin (5601), just things looking a bit worse for the wear. The bathroom was actually one of the nicer ones that we have had, and felt far less cramped than some we've had. The ports were great (though we're rather ...

Another Excellent NCL Atlantic Crossing

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I did the 13 night Atlantic Crossing joining in Miami and disembarking in Barcelona The Norwegian Jade is one of my favourite ships and NCL my favourite line from a solo traveler's point of view. Despite now being 10 years old, the Norwegian Jade still appears in tip top condition both in the public areas and my Oceanview Cabin. The only negative would be the fact that the Norwegian Jade is ...

Enjoyable first Transatlantic on the NCL Jade

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Being Platinum Latitude members, we have sailed quite often to the Caribbean and Alaska, but our first transatlantic repositioning cruise on the NCL Jade out of the Houston port was simple and easy. Taking this cruise for the first time was a great adventure. Some surprises, for example,how calm the waters of the Atlantic remained for most of the trip, made for an enjoyable crossing. The Jade is ...

My transatlantic cruise on the Jade was a lot of fun. I met some really great people the first day at the solo cruiser group as well as at night at bar city. Speaking of bar city, I thoroughly enjoyed having cocktails down here. The entertainment that would play in the evening (they had two really talented guitarists) was very good. The main showroom entertainment as usual was hit or miss. ...

First Time with Norwegian

This was our first cruise with Norwegian and the first freestyle one. We liked it very much. No overly dressy clothes to pack, just some nice pants/slacks, shirts/blouses did the job for dining. The rest was vacation clothes. However, people who had no sense at all and tried to have lunch in the restauranst in bathing suits were stopped at the door and asked to put on some clothes. We liked that ...
