First of all a transatlantic cruise is the way to go if you love cruising! The Jade was recently refurbished and it is lovely.The entertainment on the ship, especially the Element show was fantastic ! We really enjoyed eating at the specialty restaurants, especially Le BISTRO and La Cucinca. Don't miss the crepes on the Lido deck , they were outstanding. I'm not going to give details of the ship, ...

When searching for a cruise, this one showed up in an email with a price that couldn't be passed up. The cruise experience, along with the visits to places we might not otherwise see, was a big positive. The accommodations, public spaces, entertainment, and excursions were all good. The tour operators contracted by Norwegian were excellent, with knowledgeable and friendly guides who offered ...

NCL Jade 14 Night Trans-Atlantic from Tampa

We chose this cruise because of the Free amenities, plus the fact that it departed from Tampa, where we live. This local departure saved us the additional airfare to get to the Departure Port. NCL offered Free gratuities + four meals per person in Specialty Restaurants. (NCL no longer offers the 'Free Gratuities" amenity). The food and entertainment on this cruise were just outstanding, but ...

It has been 25 years since we cruised on Norwegian, but this was a special cruise for our 40th wedding anniversary. (We are platinum members on Carnival.) Ship was very elegant, but layout was difficult to grasp. Food was different but good; prime rib was only a thin cut piece. Balcony Cabin could have been laid out differently to provide extra space. A large desk area would have been helpful. ...

The Good and the Bad

The Good: 1. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We did not bring a lot of luggage, therefore the easy walk off was a great option. We were out on the pier in Southampton within 15 minutes of the clearance for disembarkation. On the day of the Embarkation we did use the porter service for the bigger suitcase. It showed up upon our return to the cabin after an early dinner. So no ...

Tampa to Southampton, eliminating jetlag!

Firstly, we chose this cruise mainly for rest and "landed" in the UK without the dreaded jetlag! We stayed in the Westin, very close to the port pre-cruise and had a complimentary van transfer which took less than 5 minutes...$20 tip shared between hotel bell-boy and driver for this excellent courtesy. The embarkation experience was fabulous...we left the Westin hotel at 10.50am and stepped ...

Trans-Atlantic cruise with a horror story.

My wife and I did a trans-Atlintic cruise two years ago and we really enjoyed it. We have never been to the Azores or Ireland before so we decided to do this cruise. We flew from DFW to Tampa a few days early, rented a car and enjoyed various sights in FL. The embarkation process was rather painless and we were on the ship within the hour. Our cabin on deck 11 was a mini suite with a balcony, ...

Jade was nice before, but is much improved now.

We love T/A cruises, lots of sea days, meeting new friends, even playing trivia( we never do this at home!) Jade was good in November when we went to Tampa, but even better in April after her refit. We liked the new O'Sheehans bar on deck 8 for breakfast...a limited selection but speedy waiter service, an ocean view table...better by far than the scrum at the Garden Cafe buffet or the poor slow ...

Average experience. Our reason for choosing was Tampa departure, drink package and gratuities included with our mini-suite selection. The martini bar was very well staffed but nothing special. Celebrity has ice bars. The cigar lounge was FILLED at all times with cigarette smokers. This should not be allowed. We were very disappointed with the lack of dress code inforcement. Swim trucks, tees and ...

We have cruised with a number of lines including NCL before and took this trip partly due to the good deal, (as it was a repositioning trip for the ship to travel to Europe), and partly as we quite like the transatlantic crossings with more "sea days". We took a "Mini Suite" which was perfect, larger than a standard balcony and includes a bath rather than the usual shower only option - slight ...
