These comments are provided from the perspective of a mid-60’s retired couple who have ocean cruised on 10 previous occasions mainly on Princess and Celebrity. The primary objective was to sail through the Suez Channel and have the opportunity to experience the Middle East countries. We chose NCL because of itinerary and price. I found the website easy to use; as we like to pre-register, ...

Fabulous itinerary -- Mediocre Ship -- Norwegian Star

The itinerary was truly spectacular. A "bucket list" for us and our traveling companions. For us, every port from Cyprus to Dubai was a new adventure, and even several ports in Italy and Greece offered new experiences. [The ports were Rome, Naples, Messina, Piraeus, Kakolon (Greece) Cyprus, Haifa (Israel) Aqaba (Jordan) Safaga (Egypt), passing through the Suez Canal, Salalah and Muscat (Oman) ...

Itinerary Rome-Naples-Messina-Katakolon-Athens-Limassol-Haifa-Aqaba-Safaga-Salalah-Muscat-Dubai 30October 2016 Norwegian Star. CHECKIN at Civitavecchia and bag delivery score a 10 for ease, promptness and friendliness. There is no welcoming committee as you board the ship, just the unfriendly dour faces of security. Norwegian have an inconsistent policy of removing all beverages at every ...

This was my first time on NCL and it will be my last. The money grubbing was ridiculous. They had very uninteresting menus in the restaurant to force people to pay for their specialty restaurants. It seemed like they always were charging for something. The casino staff (except for the cashiers) were incredibly rude. The embarkation was terrible with all the wheelchair people squeezed into a ...

This was our 13th cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line and our fourth time sailing on the Jade. We keep returning to NCL for two reasons: their free-style concept and the excellent service given by each and every member of crew and staff on board their ships. This cruise took us to Turkey (Antalya rather than Alanya since the sea swell and winds were too high to go there), Cyprus (Limassol), ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 100s

Dining: D- We have been on 54 cruises, 7 with NCL, and we found the dining room experience on the Jade one of our worst. Although I enjoy eating in the alternative pay dining rooms, it felt like to us we had to to have an enjoyable and tasteful dinner. The service was hit and mostly miss in the Grand Pacific and the dreary designed Alizar. The shrimp in the appetizer were so small you could ...

I have taken my time in submitting a review as I wanted to be sure that I submit a clear and accurate one because we had chosen this ship for its itinerary only and not ...
