Norwegian Jade cruise review
Is NCL right for you?
No cruise line is ideal for everyone, and a European voyage with NCL is best suited to travelers who enjoy a lively, unpretentious, international, and multigenerational "large ship" cruise experience.
During our two-week summer cruise on Norwegian Jade, we saw older couples, honeymooners, parents with young children, family reunions, and even a quinceañera celebration with a teenage girl in a formal gown.
Some guests were squeezed into three- or four-person cabins; others enjoyed spacious villa or penthouse suites in The Haven. According to the hospitality staff, our cruise's passengers came from more than 55 countries. (We often heard Italian, French, Spanish, and German; other guests spoke Russian, Chinese, Japanese, or languages that we didn't recognize.) The 2,854 passengers represented a cross-section of leisure travelers in Europe, and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
If you're looking for a seagoing vacation at competitive fares, or even if you simply prefer the amenities of a large ship that emphasizes "Freestyle Cruising," a European cruise with NCL is worth considering.
