Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by vkg
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Norwegian Fjords
- Cabin Type: Aft-Facing Mini-Suite with Balcony
The "no smoking" balcony was not a rule our neighbors chose to follow and since our balcony was mostly enclosed the smoke was terrible. It only took three complaints to customer service and one actual visit to them before anything was done to correct the situation. Too many people smoking everywhere they could get away with it and there really wasn't any enforcement.
The toilet stopped working for two days in a row. The first day was all day, the second only for a short time.
Very little variety in entertainment, two great shows but everything else was very repetitive.
The buffet was better than the dining room on most nights, although the steak that was available every night was very good. Asian restaurant was terrible. O'Sheehan's was fine but service was slow and drinks were warm.
We only booked one of our tours through the ship and it was great but so were all the others booked locally that were cheaper. Blue Puffin does a great trip to Nordkapp, not to be missed. The ship only offers transportation.
Yes, I would recommend this fantastic visit to the fjords of Norway but I would suggest a different cruise line.

It is directly below the aft area of the buffet, you will be awake at 5 am weather you want to be or not because that is when they start putting out the tables and chairs, repeats again at night.
Fantastic views from the balcony was it's saving grace, and our cabin stewart was great!

The Path of the TrollsOur tour went to all the same places that the ship tour went, sheaper. do not be afraid to book independently here. A lot of riding though.View All 26 The Path of the Trolls Reviews
BergenWe used the Hop on Hop off Blue bus. If you want to see Mount Floyen it has the best combo price. The views from above were fantastic, a must do. The fish market was great for those wanting some crab or other seafood cause you sure aren't getting any on the ship, which is a shame.View All 666 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews

Mount DalsnibbaWe did the all day tour that started in Hellyst and ended in Geiranger. Saw the deepest lake in Europe and had an amazing day with beautiful weather.View All 69 Mount Dalsnibba Reviews
HamburgHamburg is a beautiful city, I have been here before and know it has much more to offer than can be done on a half day tour. It would deserve a longer visit if you have the time.View All 136 Hamburg Cruise Port Reviews
