We chose this NCL Jade cruise for its itinerary: up the western coast of Norway and into the Arctic Circle. We were very pleased with most aspects of the cruise.
The Jade is a comparatively small ship, comfortable and tastefully decorated. There is a wide variety of dining venues, along with bars/lounges, spa areas, and casino. The passengers on this cruise appeared to be there for the scenery, rather than being a party crowd that you find on shorter, more tropical cruises. Embarkation and debarkation went smoothly.
Our balcony room was comfortable, and well maintained by our attentive steward. Of note, there were quite a few outlets and charging ports in the cabin, more than most hotel rooms offer. The lighting could have been a little better.
Comfortable and excellent steward services. Lots of outlets and charging ports, dim lighting. Great balcony.
Took flobanen to top of mt. Floyen for a hike. Go early-the funicular line gets ridiculously long. Took self-guided walking tour. Fish market is worth seeing. Bryggen area is too crowded and touristy.
