Just got back from a cruise on Norwegian Jade. We had a balcony cabin on dekc 9 certainly they have balc\onies above. Note.Beware of extras.!0% automatic service charge per person per day added to your bill. Ask on the last cruising day to have it removed, simply sign a form. In the Chinese,Japanese ,Suchi Bar,and French onn`t take the ships tours there expensive and ill organised, use local trains and buses.

Yes, we have just returned from a 13night Med cruise on the Norwegian Jade. I must say we were very dissappointed with the service and the overall feeling of the ship, it had been in dry dock since coming from Hiwai to update it, the decor etc was still in line for this area and was very brash, layout of the ship was not good... The 'Anytime dining' they have is not very well organized. food is badly served and variety is poor. You will get your meal but it could be ANYTIME. You wait ages to be served and the waiters/waitresses are not very effeciant or happy.....the dining rooms were chaotic at times to say the least, not at all relaxing place to eat.We feel that the reason for this is maybe to get you to eat in the Speciality resturants which you pay extra price. We have cruised many times before and must say this was not up to standards, we will not be going on NCL ships again.....Many passengers were not well pleased.We had a balcony on the 10th deck which was very nice albeit a bit small, the stewards were better than the serving staff....and don't forget they stop 10dollars aday each passenger for service charge.Hope they will have sorted out the problems by time you sail and have a great time.

We have just returned from cruising the Med. on this ship. There was very little we could find right with this ship, decor maybe, we feel sorry for any first time cruisers because this is not how cruising is. The entertainment and food was not up to scratch, but the main critisium was the staff. Compared to other cruises they didn't seem happy doing their job, they didn't mis with the clients there was no entertainment in the day time as is usual.

Enforcing a dress code policy

By Steve Fuller

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...

This week is a very personal blog a difficult one to write too, but it is more a thank you to my friends, family and especially my colleagues.A couple of blogs back I wrote about a mini cruise I booked for my parents and their 50th wedding anniversary on the Norwegian Spirit from Malaga to Barcelona.I am pleased to say that my parents loved it and had a wonderful time. The weather stayed good for the sailing at the end of February, although windy the sun shone over them time they was on board...
