Great Itinerary!

We choose our cruises based on itinerary and price. We have focused on seeing Europe the past few years and have always wanted to do a British Isles cruise but the cost was substantially more than the Mediterranean ...

Stick with the Ocean Pacific Dining Room and Speciality Restaurants

Excellent Itinerary, Very Nice Ship, The Positives Outweigh The Negatives

My group of 5 chose this cruise because of the itinerary - seeing many ports around the UK, and only two days at sea. Thoughts: Boarding: Very good, very fast. I thought Norwegian did a very good job of ...

The Jade: OK but not Wow

We just completed a British Isle cruise on the Jade and were really looking forward to the newly renovated ship. However, though the décor colours were updated to be more classic and subdued there was really no ...

Changes in NCL policies

There were a few changes in NCL policies on the ship that we were not aware of at the beginning of our trip. The policy on straws was a little bit of an issue. We could have brought our own had we known about the ...

Truly Norwegian!

Ninth cruise with Norwegian, and have already booked a 10th! It seems that the majority of comments made about Norwegian - or any cruise ship - is the negativity. Well, I've been a Norwegian cruise off Australia ...

Beautiful scenery

Wanted to see Norway & Iceland was a bonus. You do spend quite a bit of time on buses going to the different sites, but there is a lot of beautiful scenery. It is a 14 day cruise, so a little long for some, but ...

Ideal Luxury

For a too-short two-day cruise, I had cabin 11018, the Sapphire Penthouse. Amazing space. With a butler, champagne (not just sparkling wine) and a doorbell. Not to mention a window in the tub and a window in the ...

OK rooms, amenities, activities, awful guest services.

This is my second cruise on NCL and first on the Jade. I was looking forward to a smaller ship due to more personal service and personable crew. The ship's pools were a bit small for the sold-out two-day voyage I ...
