  3. Norwegian Jade
We arrived in Venice a couple of days before sailing on the Jade,we're from Italy so we didn't have a long trip to Venice, but my son(12 years old)and my daughter(7 years old) had never been to Venice before, so we took them around the city to all the most famous places,Rialto bridge,San Marco square,Canal Grande,Murano and Burano... Embarkation was smooth and before noon we were on board...Dining was always great,we didn't look for pasta,anyway,we just enjoyed eating something different fromwhat we usually eat at home,and we were completely satisfied...we found the buffet to be much more complete and varied than on other ships... We had an inside family cabin which was perfect for us with plenty of space to store our clothes,a nice large bathroom,and perfectly clean... we liked the evening shows at the theatre,didn't like so much the duo singers by the pool,but it was not an issue...always found a table in a short time at the buffet and never had to wait more than 20 minutes to get a table at the restaurants...just one issue...from the third night we had to wait a lot between entrees and the main course...but we thought it was always worth the wait! DS and DD didn't go to kids club,they prefer staying with us while on holiday,and we had fun playing shuffleboard,monopoly,or just staying at the pool... Ports were absolutely fabolous...we rented cars to go around Corfu,Mykonos and Katakolon and we saw beautiful villages,the ancient site of Olimpia,and some beaches too... On Santorini day,DH was by the pool at 7,30 AM so he was able to get ticket #1 for tendering,people who got tickets later could not be able to go on shore before 3 PM... So we really loved our Jade cruise,can't wait to sail again!!! Hope my english is quite understandable...

We loved this cruise...
