fenwicnd's review of Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Jade

“On reading previous reviews I wondered if they were...”

★★★★☆

written by fenwicnd on 26/10/2010

On reading previous reviews I wondered if they were really talking about the Norwegian Jade!



Took taxi to port from Barcelona airport at a cost of 27.5 euros, but 35 euros on return to airport. Embarking/disembarking was quick and easy.



Food was excellent, ate only in the Garden cafe as the food there was fantastic and did not feel the need to eat elsewhere. Did not have a problem finding a table or keeping it when selecting second course etc. Staff cleared your plates away pretty promptly, were always polite and helpful and all spoke very good english.



Entertainment I found was very good and enjoyed all the shows and musicians.



Stateroom was kept spotless, enjoyed finding towel animals!!



Overall, was extremely happy with cruise. Yes, the excursions were expensive so only went on one organised trip and we did our own thing in the rest of the ports. The daily newsletters/information sheets were very informative and we appreciated them as it helped to plan our days. Lots to do even if you stay onboard all day.



Yes, alcohol/branded drinks were expensive but you have the option of buying drinks packages. (Although this was something we didn't do as we both don't drink much alcohol and were happy with teas/coffee's etc, I assume a drinks package would work out cheaper).



The ship was full but did not have a problem finding a sunbed.



I thought the shops on board were very expensive and didn't buy anything. The $12/day service charge seems excessive , but we were more than happy to pay due to the excellent service and staff do work very hard.



So don't be put off by the negative reviews, you can't please all of the people all of the time! We had a wonderful holiday.
