We selected the Norwegian and the Jade for it's overall value, ports of call and time of year. We were delighted when we found out that it had just undergone a complete refurb three weeks prior to our cruise. The embarkation process was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a choice of what went out of Tampa. Royal Caribbean had an old ship for more $$$ or Carnival an even older ship. The perks certainly had something to do with it also. We had our daughter, son in law ... Read more

The ship was totally under staffed The food which you had to wait for wasn't worth waiting for. Cold most of the time. The bartenders or lack there of were rude and acted as if they didn't want to be doing their job. It took until ... Read more

My daughter and I cruised on the Jade, with a lot of wonderful people. The first day at sea, the ship felt very crowded. Open areas were full of drinking sunbathers. Our first stop was Cozumel, having visited this island on more of a ... Read more

My 2nd time within 6 month's on this ship & itinerary. The Jade is just the right size, not too large and not too small. Booked a suite the first go round and a balcony cabin this time and I must say other than the perks of the ... Read more

Three of us got to the port about 10:30. We processed our paperwork and were on board at 12:00. We had parked two blocks away from the port at a Place called Parkkway Parking and cut the parking cost down from $125, at the port , to ... Read more

We just got back from the April 16 - 23 NCL Jade Cruise. The ship was just 2 week's out of a dry dock renovation. The ship was beautiful. They are still working to upgrade some of the furniture (chairs in the dining area). We started ... Read more

I'd never cruised before. I mean, I've taken the casino cruise out of Port Canaveral and the Spirit of Norfolk, but nothing like this. Our cruise left Tampa and took its time getting to Cozumel, then we cruised down to Costa Maya for the ... Read more

We chose to sail on the Jade as the cruise was leaving from Tampa, less than an hour from home. The easiest embarkation ever for me. I traveled with my 24-year old niece, who is like a daughter to me and was visiting from the north for ... Read more

We took this cruise with my family to celebrate college and high school graduations. The ship has just returned from dry dock with modest improvements. The NCL Jade is a medium size ship by today's standards. I enjoyed this sized ship ... Read more

Loved the refreshed interiors and updated public areas. The crew seemed re-energized and friendly. Only complaint was the Belize port of call shore excursions are now restricted to the cruise lines own property and favored businesses. This ... Read more

We had a fantastic time on the beautiful Norwegian Jade which had just come out of refurbishment before our cruise. We had a couple negatives but I still gave it 5 stars because overall it was an excellent vacation. Here are the ... Read more

Embarkation was awkward. Ship staff seemed confused, sent us to the wrong line to check in, when we asked why there wasn't a line for the Penthouse suite they apologized, sent us to the suite line where we were told we were in the wrong ... Read more

Frankly, we picked the NCL Jade simply because their itinerary matched our son's spring break schedule. Fortunately, all the destinations were also new to us except for Cozumel. We were the second cruise after dry dock so it was not ... Read more

We picked NCL for this family cruise celebrating our patriarch 85th birthday because we had such a great time on NCL Sun for our last family cruise five years ago. The food in Grand Pacific (aft main dining room) was pretty good. We ... Read more

I went on this cruise with my mother, my best friend and her mother. We got to the port a little later than I had planned, in general I don't feel like it took too long getting onto the boat and soon enough we were exploring the ship. ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it coincided with Spring Break. We were up-sold on a mini-suite which was a great choice. The mini-suite was more than spacious enough for the 3 of us. The balcony with 2 chairs and a little table was very ... Read more

We decided to take a family cruise, and planned this for almost a year. The excitement quickly turned to disappointment, as each day there were little things that just added to the aggravation. There wasn't any place on the ship except ... Read more

I don't know where to begin! This was my first cruise experience, so I was very skeptical, especially since the pictures posted of the Jade were prior to the renovation (we were second cruise subsequent to renovation) - needless to say, on ... Read more

This was my first Norwegian cruise. I was advised by a friend and my travel agent to choose a different line. However, I read about The Haven and wanted to try it. There was only one Courtyard penthouse suite left, so my TA grabbed it ... Read more

Embarkation was a long, slow process even though we were there an hour early. Waited in line almost three hours. Definitely bring food, water, etc. and maybe something that you can sit on while you wait. Departure was delayed due to ... Read more

SHIP: The ship was in pretty good condition considering that this is the last cruise before it goes to dry dock. I won't go into much detail on the decor, public spaces, etc., as it will all be different for the next cruise anyways. I ... Read more
