Jade in Winter: Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by Babaganush
Overall Member Rating
Jade in Winter
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The food on board was very good and the variety was plenty to keep us well fed. We tried the Japanese restaurant at extra cost and really enjoyed watching the cooking show. Regarding shows, the nightly entertainment on the big stage was very good. I really liked the way many of the daily shows were weaved together for a grand finale on the last night. The cruise director Gary was the MC for most shows and also gave short lectures on our shore excursions. He is very knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. The games for the cruisers such as karaoke, name More that tune and trivia were lots of fun. The music programs at the bars were good and catered to all tastes. We do not gamble so can't comment about the casino on board except that it is a smoking zone and one has go trough that to get to the big theatre. With all those entertainment on board, we spent very little daytime hours in the room. The TV channels available in the room were very few and no US sports channels were available.
The embarkation and disembarkation at all the ports went very well. Luggage check in during embarkation and disembarking was also a breeze. Since there was a daily tip amount automatically added to our bill we did not have worry about tipping any of the crew except those who work in the specialty restaurants. Less
