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 ...

We had a fun time on this ship. It appears there is a TA crowd that we plugged into from cruise critic and we had a blast getting together on sailaways, a daily game of LCR which grew larger (and louder) every day, the cabin crawl and met some wonderful people. We would definitely do it again. The ship accommodated our cruise critic crowd as we grew larger and needed more space. We were even ...

Even though the Jade is going in for remodeling, we loved the old Hawaiian decor. We thought it was really elegant and not gaudy. Service was excellent. The staff remembered our names and greeted us everywhere. Grand Pacific main dining room had excellent food. All the specialty restaurants were also excellent. I have a severe food allergy and this is the FIRST time cruising that I did not get ...

We chose the transatlantic cruise out of the Houston port on NCL Jade because it was the last time NCL would be embarking from Houston. The embarkation was fast and easy. My DH and I took the transatlantic cruise to Barcelona. The Jade could use some updating, as it used to be a ship that toured the Hawaii islands and it is Hawaiian themed. Some of the chairs in the atrium are very ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was my first cruise so I have nothing to say except it was outstanding. I cannot image anything better. The people, the games (LRC), and the rooms were large and comfortable. That being said, The food was great, but not up to my standards, especially at the french restaurant. For example, the snails were not washed well (grit and sand) and they were soaked in plain butter without garlic. ...

Enjoyable first Transatlantic on the NCL Jade

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. ...

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

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 ...
