For a first-time cruiser this experience was wonderful. NCL made it very easy to board and disembark and provided easy to follow directions everywhere in-between. Though a couple of the ports we stopped at weren't very interesting, shipboard activities, the food and the drink more than made up for them. The staff aboard the Jade were a joy and really made us feel at home. Our cabin steward and Maya in the Spinnaker Lounge almost seemed like family by the time the cruise ended. The food availability was fantastic though the temperature of some of the dishes wasn't always consistent. The flavors were consistently great which resulted in our over-eating, which to be honest, was anticipated. A balcony cabin is highly recommended, as the views of the sea, and the ability to go outside and read or relax is in my opinion one of the highlights of the cruise. Though the overall expense of cruising is somewhat higher than independent land travel, both my wife and I agree that the pampering and individualized attention were truly enjoyed, and we would most probably cruise again in the near future.

Variety and a wonderful Panama Canal experience

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B3 9664
Quite a bit more roomy than I had anticipated. The room was comfortable and clean, though the bathroom sink quickly backed up and drained slowly. I would definitely re-book in this stateroom should I cruise on the Jade again,
