  3. Norwegian Jade
We chose this cruise as a great way to see many cities without changing hotels nightly and coordinating transportation from city to city. We wanted to see enough of each City to be able to determine if a return visit was of interest. We took advantage of some of the many shore excursions offered but mostly scheduled private tours. We created quite a robust schedule and in retrospect it probably would have been better, in some cases, not to schedule anything and just wander a bit. The Norwegian shore excursions were very well organized but really there were too many people in one place and in most cases it seemed too metered and didn't allow the opportunity for really stopping in any place too long to independently shop, eat, or explore. In Croatia we wasted more time waiting for the glut of people to ascend and descend from the cable car station....too much time wasted on a short ride. Venice was amazing and a better pace. Not rushed and definitely a City worth revisiting. The food on the ship was OK. Very abundant but on day 7-8 it became a little monotonous. It would be great if new things were introduced everyday but maybe not available all 14 days. I will say that we used the suggestion box on board and the Operations Team was immediately responsive to our comments and suggestions.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MA
Beautiful cabin with plenty of storage and room to lounge and move around with two adults. Everything was thoughtfully placed; lighting, outlets, make-up mirror, fridge, electronic charging outlets etc.

Our cabin attendant Diego was marvelous and super helpful in a non-intrusive way.
