Norwegian Jade Cruise Review by Cruiser-newbie
- Sail Date: June 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Balcony
We were first timers on a cruise and felt quite abandoned and out of our depth!
No-one was at the terminal to direct us, or tell us what to do!
We eventually discovered things as we went along, and finally managed to make our own way to the ship!!
Supposedly, the ship had undergone a refurbishment last year, however, other passengers who had been on the ship before the refurb, could see no evidence of any refurb whatsoever!!!!
The ship is like a cruise ferry, and certainly not very luxurious. It was expensive as we had booked a guaranteed balcony room, however, when we got to the room, it was reminiscent of a caravan on a holiday camp!!!
The restaurants were of a poor quality, as was the food, which was often cold and tasteless.
The entertainment was very poor and, as we thought, was more suited to a working men's social club!!!!
Activities amounted to quizzes, bingo, games, crosswords, etc!!!
If you like a drink at the bar, accompanied by a night club singer, then you'll be happy on the Jade. . .it's a very expensive way to do it though!!!!
The service staff were all very friendly, however, the same could not be said of the ship's crew, who seemed to get out the wrong side of the bed most mornings!!!
The excursions were okay, expensive, however, the only way to see the beautiful scenery that the Fjords have to offer!
250,000+ people have entered their email
Very cramped, even though it was a balcony room!!!
Nothing too comfortable or luxurious!!!
