Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by karendann

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

We sailed on the Norwegian Jade in October 2019. We traveled as a group with a local travel agent. This was a dream cruise with a fantastic itinerary. This was our first cruise and it far exceeded our expectations. The ship itself was not too big and fairly easy to get around. The food was great, the staff were excellent and the ship was very clean. The ports of call were amazing! Our travel agent organized our excursions and they were great. Be prepared for a lot of walking. I would recommend this cruise in a heartbeat.

The embarkation was a breeze no line ups and getting off the ship at each port was very easy. The final disembarkation was a little long but it was to be expected as we all took our time getting off because we didn't want our vacation to end.

This was our first cruise but based on our experience with will not be our last.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

I loved our balcony room. I think the room could have been a little bigger but it was adequate. I would think that if you tried to fit three adults into the room it would have been way too small.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Easy to get around on your own. Took the cable car. It was quick and easy.

Athens (Piraeus)

The Acropolis was amazing. The city itself was a bit of a let down. There was graffiti everywhere. It was a shame.


We loved this town. Very fun to walk around.

Grand Master Palace

I think this was one of our favorite ports.

Malta (Valletta)

We took the hop on hop off bus (15 euros each). We didn't have much time here but we went to Mdina and it was beautiful. What a magical place.

Mount Etna

Loved it! Just the drive to Etna was worth the trip. I would love to go back to Sicily again.
