My partner and I recently returned from the 8/23/09 sailing on the Jade from Southampton to Barcelona. We were a little apprehensive about the Jade from some of the recent reviews, but we decided to go with the attitude that we were going to have a great time, and we did. I really don't understand some of the bad reviews. A lot of it sounded like general whining, things beyond NCL's control, or ...

This was our 4th cruise with NCL and 2nd on Jade. The embarkation in Southampton was awful and when we eventually got on board our stress levels were very high. The ship was much as we remembered it however it was soon apparent that there were hundred's of kids on board. When we got to our cabin it was obvious that a smoker had had the room before us, it stank of stale smoke and we ...

Being first time cruisers and after reading some of the negative reviews on the Jade we were concerned to say the least about our forthcoming holiday. However after experiencing it first hand we cannot comprehend how some people can be so negative about this ship and NCL. To put our review in context I would like to point out that both on previous family holidays and as part of my job I regularly ...

If only NCL spent a little less money on their great advertising, they could give a lot more attention to basics on the Norwegian Jade. After months of planning and anticipating a delightful Mediterranean cruise, we were initially and continuously dismayed by the ship's Aloha theme...Hawaiian King holding court in the Grand Pacific dining room, with its Hawaiian dancing, shelling, and beach ...

Great time on NCL Jade

We found the cruise to be a fantastic experience. I was a little bit apprehensive after reading some not so flattering reviews but I guess each experience is personal. This itinerary was very port intensive with only two sea days. Food in both buffet and MDR restaurants was very food (both choice and quality) however menu on some days was better than on others. Service was great everywhere and $12 ...

The NCL Jade - 'Is she the Beautiful Jade or just Jaded'?

This was the second time I had cruised with NCL, the first being last summer again on the NCL Jade and on the same route. For my friend it was her first NCL cruise. However in between we had also been on a short cruise to Lisbon on the P&O Ventura. So now it was going to be quite hard not to make comparisons, but I was pleasantly surprised at most of what I encountered. we did the Mediterranean ...

We just returned from a 14 night Western Mediterranean cuise. This was our tenth cruise but our first time on NCL. We flew from Ottawa, Canada and arrived in London on the Sunday morning at about 6:30 a.m. My husband had booked a coach shuttle to Southampton with National Express. It is easy to find as it is connected to the airport and it is much less expensive than the transfers ...

This was the third cruise for me and my wife, but first time in Europe. My parents also went on this cruise, and it was their first one. We cruised before with NCL, and had a pleasant experience, so decided to go with them again, especially that the price was so good.Itinerary was great! I really enjoyed it, although in my opinion, there was no need to spend a day and a half in Barcelona, but that ...
