I was only on a 2-day cruise from Southampton to Hamburg, but I got a good feel for the ship. It has some really nice updates, and the smaller size is nice. When I say it's smaller, I'm comparing it to the Epic. I've been generally happy ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and although not an avid cruiser, have tried Royal Caribbean and Princess twice each and wanted to try NCL, Celebrity or P&O. This cruise was leaving at a good time for my party and the itinerary ... Read more

All in all, I would not take Norwegian again, average at best, low value for money. More details below. We chose this cruise as my wife wanted to see Norway, after some searching we found a cruise that was about 1/3 less than Norwegian ... Read more

We have been on most of the major cruise lines . Celebrity is our favorite with Norwegian a close 2nd . Celebrity is a little more upscale where Norwegian is more relaxed but still a solid cruise . Norwegian takes a chance with its ... Read more

Needed to use up timeshare points and needed to use NCL. The embarkation process was smooth. The dining options were excellent. The itinerary was good but be aware that some towns are very small with little internet options. Also you might ... Read more

The itinerary was wonderful, the meals in the main dining rooms were okay, the buffet had good variety, but the new O'Sheeans was not up to par. In my opinion the Fish and Chips were almost inedible. The "going ashore" was very ... Read more

We thought a cruise with my brothers and their wives (6 total people) would be the best way to see three countries. No need to worry about the lodging and meals. My sister-in-law has Irish heritage and my family ancestors were from ... Read more

The itinerary was amazing, which is why we picked this particular cruise. We had a mini suite and our steward was Armando who was excellent. Although the food included was not excellent, it was good and had many choices. Cagney was ... Read more

This was our third cruise with NCL and the overall experience was slightly dissapointing. We were expecting great things from this ship having previously enjoyed cruising the Med on Norwegian Spirit and Alaska on the Jade's sister ship ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise and the third on the Jade. We have always enjoyed the Jade and really like the upgrades in appearence and facilities that have occurred on the Jade since we last sailed. We had always wanted to see Ireland ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, although we are English we had never been to Ireland or Scotland before. Getting on board was smooth and quick, cabin was ready by 1pm but had rather a long wait for suitcases. Liked the no ... Read more

The ship was ok. We had sailed on the Jade seven years ago. There was some cosmetic changes but basically the same. They had made extra effort and privileges for the Haven guests and that was nice. The service was great. We ... Read more

Staff were generally good. The food was varied and well made but too often it was barely warm. Would suggest a better method of keeping it warm. Loved the desserts as witnessed by the 5 pounds I put on during the voyage! The cabin was ... Read more

I decided on this cruise because it was an itinerary I have been wanting to do for many years and my favourite ship with my favourite company was doing it. Being a solo cruiser this was not the cheapest cruise I have done but as it had ... Read more

The ship is fine by itself. However when we first boarded found our cabin bed(s) was not configured as we requested. The house keeping guy told us he did not receive any instruction from his supervisor. After the cabin was re-arranged, we ... Read more

This was my first cruise with NCL and the first time I’d cruised on my own following the death of my husband. We had previously been on 12 cruises. I decided to travel on my own (which I hadn’t done before) for the simple ... Read more

This was our first cruise on NCL, but our third to Norway. Our overall impression of the Jade was very good, lots to like. It seems larger than it was, with lots of deck space, and a lovely wide promenade deck. There were several ... Read more

We picked this cruise primarily for the itinerary, along with our general preference for NCL. We arranged to disembark in Bergen when we first booked the cruise in November, and later learned that early disembarkations were no longer ... Read more

This was our first cruise on the Jade and we chose it mainly for the itinerary, the bonus was that she was sailing from Southampton. Check in was a little chaotic but it was the first NCL check in at Southampton for a while, actual ... Read more
