Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a disappointment! I've never been on a cruise where it seemed that associates were delighted to say no to simple requests. The food was very mediocre. Actually lost weight on cruise. The bartenders and wait staff were beautiful. Ruby, Puto, Hernando, Billa, JM, JMack, Rowena, Ricardo and Manager Michael at Guest Services made the experience. If NCL did not have them, the cruise would have been truly horrendous. Don't recommend NCL or the Jade. Tired 1996 ship and it looks it

Good cruise. We enjoyed going to the Caribbean islands. The staff was friendly all of the time. We would have liked more variety of activities on the ship. We would also have liked more variety of dinner menu items in the dinning rooms. It was a fun trip over all.

Really loved the Jade and its small size. Easy to navigate and pools seemed large for a small ship. We booked an aft suite and loved the perks that come with that. Concierge was exceptional and butler service came in handy for in room dining. Food was very good and staff very friendly. Boat was clean and spa was relaxing. We loved everything about this ship.

Mid Coast Maine, Maine
Overall experience sailing on the Norwegian Jade was decent to good. Pros: ship is very clean, lots of friendly staff, decent shows and entertainment. Bartenders were great, we got the beverage package and it was so worth it. Food was good at most dining options (see exception below). Best dining experience was Teppanyaki- the chef was outstanding, very entertaining. Cons: if you forget any personal items like toothpaste etc, the pricing in the store is outrageous ($8 for a tube of toothpaste, $17 for cold medicine). They completely nickel and dime guests, WiFi was very costly, Alizar restaurant food was atrocious, would recommend avoiding it. Communication for disembarking for various ports or the ship was poor. I was surprised we traveled to Jamaica with a crime level rating of 3. It was a pretty uncomfortable experience and we gave up on walking around after 30 minutes. The locals were very pushy trying to get passengers to buy from them and would step in front of you to stop you from walking so they could push whatever they were selling. This is the second time I’ve sailed with NCL and the quality has gone down in the last 6 years. We would consider trying one of their newer ships to hopefully have a better experience.

Christine J wrote a review Apr 2024
The overall staff were very friendly. Cabin steward was great! Guest service staff not properly trained.6 visits for issues with water and restaurant reservations . A case of water took 2 visits and 2 days to get. Begging for distilled water for med equipment after pre ordered 2 days before departure. Just Bring some. Food was good (bland- no salt and Gluten free everything). Great in the restaurants. # are complimentary. Avoid the ATV tour in Costa Maya. Pothole dirt road - fast travel -have to focus on the road. See nothing due to 10'tall thick mangroves lining the road the whole trip!. Open bar at the end of ATV ride gives horrible alcohol. Worse than Popov! Like kerosene. took a drink and left it on the bar! Horrible -excursion was a waste of money. 3 ports owned by Norwegian - pay exuberant prices for everything on THEIR Islands! $8 bottle of water (same as on the ship). I stopped there and refused to give them another DIME at any of their ports!
