  3. Norwegian Jade
Norwegian fjords sounded exciting and they were. Sad that apart from Bergen, the other ports were very boring. Food was excellent in the buffet but the seating was always cramped and not much fun except outside. The Brazilian and Japanese speciality ding experiences were tremendous, the French left a lot to be desired. Not a lot different from the buffet. Entertainment was appalling. Comedy Illusionist evening (Magica) was most pathetic show I have ever seen. Crude and unprofessional. Insulting to guest on stage and basically one trick. The "big" production ELEMENTS relied on the magician again and the dancing was school level stuff. All very poor. To describe Elements as "a Cirque du Soleil-type show" really is beyond belief. As long time fan of Cirque there is no comparison whatsoever. Bars are good, drinks excellent. Daytime activities suit the 70 year old who were definitely the predominant age group. No Films in the evening?

Interesting Itinerary, Good food but Appalling Entertainment
