We chose the Jade for the itinerary to Norway and the North Cape. We have cruised with NCL and other cruise lines many times. Cutbacks in the regular Dining Rooms was very evident. Food selection and service was poor. Thank goodness for Cagney's Steakhouse and the Italian specialty Restaurants. The Pub (O'Sheehan's) was an excellent lunch eatery with good service. Entertainment was good and had a nice variety. Casino was adequate in size and games. The Fitness Center was a good variety of equipment and trainer was well involved Shore Excursions was priced very high. The stores had a average selection and were over priced. NCL is even charging a $7.95 room service charge for each occasion used. Latitudes program benefits have been decreased as well. NCL built their reputation with us as a cost/value cruise line in the past. This is not evident today based on our last two cruises with you. NCL can do much better as experienced in the past.
Inside cabin on Deck 4. Cabin was adequate in size for two.and was well maintained.
No Porter service from NCL at the pier. Enjoyed the city of Hamburg very much. International Airprt was adequate.
Took the Hop ON/HOP OFF bus on our own.
Went on our own for the day.
Did the HOP ON / HOP OFF Bus.
Took the NCL shore excursion to the North Cape. Beautiful experience.
