  3. Norwegian Jade
This cruise was chosen for the itenery. The staff were all excellent. The entertainment was 5 stars. We were not impressed with dinner choices in main dining room. The picture is of Santorini, the most scenic of all the ports. Taken from Jade. The embarkation and debarkation went smoothly. We took the fast train from the port of Civitavecchia to Rome. Spent three days exploring Rome and sights after the cruise. The collision was crowded and every place we went was filled with tourists. We got the three day pass to ride metro and buses. Also the fast pass the enter the Vatican and systine Chapel. Everywhere we went it was a hugs amount of walking. All the Italians were friendly and helpful, when we ask for directions in English. Some spoke English and others didn't. We speak Spanish also and found they understand Spanish as many words are similar. Personally we found Rome to be quite hectic and lots of traffic. Everyone was in a hurry. Seems like they are stressed out, too much! The metro (subway) at times was packed and I felt clostrofoblc. None of the younger people get up and let older ones sit down. I am glad we went to Rome, however may not go back. I think going to Tuscany and staying there for a while would be nice.

Wonderful ports.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IE
The cabin and bathroom were spacious. Bed comfortable. However we were located below the kitchen, so each morning at 4 AM, it was very noisy. The cabin was very dusty with dust balls under the beds. The fridge had not been restocked. However our steward was very friendly.
