Another Good Jade Cruise
"Sailed out of Barcelona for 12 nights. This is my sixth or seventh time on the Jade but never submitted a review before. Having found other reviews of great use when planning a trip I finally thought I should try..."Read More

Amazing Trip

We started in Rome & ended in Dubai. Boarding in Rome was very easy. I’m a platinum plus, so zipped right thru. Only one complaint. For some reason, every one of our umbrellas were taken out of our luggage when we boarded. ??? 3 of them? Every port was easy on & off. Oman & Fujairah were shipping ports, so not designed for ships yet. But transportation were brought to ship. Food in ...

Ports were Outstanding; NCL was Okay

My wife and I are, generally speaking, destination-driven. This itinerary really appealed to us because we had not been to the Holy Land, nor to the Middle East. The stops were interesting and historical. NCL, IMO, continues to nickle and dime us for every possible sale. At some point, you half-expected someone to get in the elevator with you to sell you something: excursions, spa ...

We chose this cruise as an experience of a lifetime. To see places such as Petra and the Suez Canal. We have traveled extensively over our life time. Our previous cruises were fantastic and we decided to try a different cruise line and experience different countries by cruising. The first half of the cruise up until the end of the Suez Canal was as we expected. The shore excursions were very ...

We chose this cruise because it fit to our availability and because we liked the extraordinary itinerary with lots of highlights. We knew this ship from a previous cruise. The ship is huge but not as huge as other ships. Entertainment is perfect and above the average. Free dining options are very good, especially in the a-la-carte Grand Pacific restaurant. Special dietary needs are perfectly ...

We chose this cruise to give us a taste of the Mediterranean, Italy, Greece and the Adriatic in Oct/Nov 2019. On those points, it did not disappoint. The ports were fantastic, but this review isn't about the ports, its about the ship. Lets start with the good. Its clean and obviously had a recent refurbish, we liked the layout and we liked the general look and feel. We had a mid ship balcony ...

Chose this cruise for the itinerary. Was anxious to see some of the parts and take shore excursions. Embarkation process was very uncoordinated; staff seemed confused with process. Ship was ok, cabin with balcony, very close quarters. Food and dining: very, very disappointed in quality of food served throughout ship; buffets to specialty dining. Food was never hot. A lot of wasted food ...

After spending four very busy days in Rome, we embarked on the NCL Jade for a two week cruise of the area. Embarkation was the smoothest I've ever seen in my cruising history. Maybe it was because I'm use to going on the larger ships, but we waited in line maybe 2 minutes before getting our stateroom cards and other information. We were in cabin 10624, which had a strange smell coming ...

We did a 14 day Greece Italy cruise in November 2019 on the jade. It was actually our second time on her, we didn’t know it but we had been on before when it was the pride of Hawaii in 2007. This itinerary was awesome, 12 cities in 14 days including an overnight in Venice (luckily just a week before it flooded). The refresh was nice, everything looked new and clean and it was great to have usb ...

We wanted to cruise the Mediterranean and this ship was visiting the places we wanted to see. I have to say though, we didn’t really compare it to any other cruise lines and it was our first cruise. Still, I’m sure I will visit Greece and Italy again, I just won’t cruise. A few things I noted while onboard: Malta- The very best part is the view from the ship in port. It’s breathtaking. ...

I chose this cruise for its amazing itinerary which was going to 3 places I hadn't visited before. Embarkation in Rome was smooth & fast. I had stayed overnight at the Hilton Garden Hotel near the airport so I could take the NCL shuttle to the port & it worked out well. I really liked the hotel which included a nice breakfast, had a free shuttle to the airport & a nice restaurant so I would ...
