  3. Norwegian Jade
We chose this cruise for the itinerary and time of year. We have cruised on Viking ocean cruises and the Windstar cruises; Norwegian is less expensive and we now know you get what you pay for. Our room was near the trash compactor/waste machine and there was a constant banging sound all night long. Norwegian has no business selling cabins that make it impossible to sleep. After four nights of no sleep we were finally moved to another cabin and the ensuing packing up and moving was a pain, but was worth it for a peaceful night. The food was mediocre and there was only one specialty restaurant, Cagney's,that was worth the money. On one occasion we had a very short time in port; we rose early to get off for the maximum amount of time shore, but were told we had to wait to disembark because "premium" members were given the early disembarkation. This is no way to treat people who have paid for a cruise. We will not be returning customers.
