I would advise you seriously to read all the Norwegian Jade reviews on this site before you consider booking this ship, or the Jewel for that matter! It is quite easy. Just go to the cruise review page on this site and under SHIPS click on the Norwegian Jade and all destinations, then search. I would certainly not under any circumstances cruise on her, how ever cheap the initial cruise price was! I might just think about it if it was free. Happy cruising.

The cabins are good,some people do make an effort and dress up majority dont.Food not bad but be prepared to wait for for dinner some nights unless you want to pay extra and eat at the speciality restaurants.Drinks are more expensive because they automatically add 15%on.Entertainment is a matter of choice we did,nt like it as there were no shows with a wow factor.The Jade is not a very happy ship unless you are spending more money.

Norwegian Jade offers a good mass-market experience on a modern, casual, floating resort: however they are not Cunard! The surcharge dining is very good, but the free dining can be mediocre. Gi if you get a good deal, but remeber you will get a 3-4 star experience at a 3-4 star fare.

Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
