Norwegian Jade cruise review
Lounges and bars
Norwegian Jade has 11 lounges and bars, so you'll never go thirsty or have trouble finding a place to sit.

As we mentioned on the previous page, is located near the pools, and is upstairs from Topsiders on Deck 13, in the heart of sunbathing territory. Both offer the usual drinks (including "beer buckets"), burgers, and other snacks.

If you're an eager imbiber, you can save money with prepaid deals that include:
