Well, I believed Norweigen is a reputable cruise line, but not this time. I knew the crew did their best. They were polite. Hard working and offered free entertainment. Service Dept was always short staff. Ogot my specialty dinner back. Food was okay but housekeeping can be better as we had to pay $20. per day mandatory. Sometimes it was done before dinner time.

What upset me most the excursions. Istanbul was a pearl of the trip. It was cut to half day. Hate to hear the guide say ' next time when you come' or ' if only you have more time's.

Here came the worst part. How could Norweigen Jade and Getaway ended up at Santorini on the same day. It was 30+ scorching hot. The cruise kept tethering people to the island. Either one had to walk 500+ steps up hill or to wait for hours for a 36 seaters gondola. Those were bad experience. Not one person I talked to were happy, except those who opted private tour. They were long gone.There should be better organization, especially the two ships belong to Norweigen. At least the tethering boats can divert some of the passengers to the other side of the island and offered a free bus ride if they agreed. Then the trip to Mykonos was cancelled completely due to 'danger situation'. Did the ship try to make thepassenger happy. No, everything went asscheduled.
