NCL has done it again! Amazing food, and staff! Can’t wait to book again. We had to fly to Rome for this trip so we stayed in Rome afterward. But cruising is so much easier and we stopped in 9 ports in 10 days. The Jade is a medium size ship with enough elevators so that they were never crowded. This ship also has the spinnaker lounge, my favorite place to sit, read, and watch the view. This special lounge located at the top of the ship has been eliminated on the larger ships to make way for more rooms. But without it, there is nowhere else to get these panoramic views but in the buffet place. Casino was fun with great bar service. Won several big wins. Restaurants were all amazing and really cared about you! Unbelievable service and food. Our balcony room was ok and comfy. Amazing bartenders! Fun and quick. Ports of call were in Greece or Italy. Wonderful stops! Taormina in Sicily was our favorite but Mikonos and Santorini were great too. Downsides: ncl excursions are pricey. Did only 3 in 10 days. Some singers/bands put us to sleep with the slow ballads, etc. and rock or lively music started late at night. Especially when we had to meet for an excursion at 7:15 am. No time for shows either. Deal or no deal is a waste. But they make a huge amount of money on it. Overall, a fabulous trip! We will go again for sure.

Wonderful trip! Sept 2019

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9054
Cabin was fine. Nice balcony and comfortable bed. Nice bathroom but small toilet area. We are both slim but if you are heavy set, you may be uncomfortable. Storage adequate. Deck 9 was very quiet. We were not far from elevator. Steward nice and thorough.
