Norwegian Jade July 2017 Review This was our third cruise on the Norwegian Jade, but the first since the estimated $40 million refurbishment; needless to say I was looking forward to see how much of the original Pride of Hawaii was ... Read more

We cruise every few years based on itineraries, not loyalty programs. We chose this cruise because we had never been to any of the ports before. The itinerary met our expectations, with the only shortcoming being Edinburgh. There was a ... Read more

The cruise was fine. The Garden Cafe was too crowded. Food selections were good but too many people - bumping into each other, few choices of places to sit. Other dining rooms OK. Specialty restaurants: We only went to La Cucina, twice, ... Read more

We were on the Jade in June 2017 after the refurbishment. Had sailed on the Jade in the Mediterranean in 2015. Absolutely loved the new colours - more earthy tones which were definitely easier on the eyes compared to the loud Hawaiian ... Read more

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

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 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
