We recently sailed on the Norwegian Jade from Southampton to the North Cape, leaving June 17. We enjoyed it, especially the opportunity to explore Northern Norway, a land of magnificent scenery, charming villages and interesting history.
Here are some of the things we liked the most, compared to other cruises we’ve been on:
1. The roomy bathroom. Compared to other cruise ships, this was almost a regular bathroom. If you drop the soap in the shower you can pick it up without getting out of the shower. This may not seem like a big deal but compared to the torturously small bathrooms on other ships this seemed luxurious.
Beautiful and interesting city. Would have liked more time there. Took the walking tour, which toured some amazingly preserved (not just restored) Hanseatic buildings. Pouring rain, so couldn't do all we had planned.
