  1. I gotta tell ya...I just liked the Jade's bright and colorful decor before her being subdued in appearance. Also i enjoyed her Christmas decor the year we sailed on her during the season. I wish I could have bought one of her colorful floral fixtures when they were removed. Miss all of this. Here. Try this link for the photos. Don't know why the previous don't show up now. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZqicMKnJTde3Xq4f8

  3. We just booked an aft-facing club balcony suite on Deck 11 on a Nov/Dec 2022 B2B from Athens to Cape Town and have a few questions. 1. Noise traffic regarding cabin location: When does the "noise" traffic actually die down up at The Great Outdoors which is located on Deck 12 directly above us? From everything we've read, the buffet closes around 5:30 pm, so one would think it would be pretty calm from about 8 pm on. Would this be a fair assumption or are there some other events that go on up there, other than the crew moving some chairs around in the early morning hours? 2. Specialty restaurants versus MDR: We know food is subjective, but is the quality in the specialty restaurants significantly better than in the MDR? As we have received a bunch of OBC from our TA, we're thinking of purchasing the 39 day specialty dinner package for $14.10 pp/day including gratuities which sounds like a pretty good deal if the quality is there. 3. Internet: Our stateroom has received a combined 1000 minutes of Internet for our B2B due to it being reconfigured under one booking number. The cost for Unlimited Wifi for all 38 days is $798 with 15% off if you book online. Should we wait until onboard to get a better discount by exchanging the 1000 minutes for a 38 day Unlimited Wifi package or does NCL even offer a prorated option in such a case? As we have only sailed with NCL once before and that was on the Getaway for 7 days back in 2017, any thoughts will be appreciated as this is definitely a much longer cruise.
  4. Do these suite categories still get Butler/Concierge and breakfast and lunch in specialty restaurants on Jade? I read "somewhere" that it was possible that these benefits would be going away. Hope not.
  5. On our last few cruises we have found it is nice to have a drink in the evening in a quiet bar, maybe with a piano and singer; I guess low energy as opposed to loud music and dancing. Is there a venue like that on the Jewel?
  6. I'm booked for the Jade May 30 - June 13. Has anyone heard anything about this booking? My hotel in Amsterdam has already Emailed me to say there closed until May30th but United air lines and Norwegian have not said a word. This is only my 3rd cruise and The first time flying, I don't know what to do at this pointe. I got a lot of money invested and don't wont to lose it. This was going to be the vacation of a life time for my family but is turning into a nightmare. Any help or advice is welcome.
  7. Hi, We are considering booking a Caribbean cruise on the Jade for either later this year or next year. In terms of rooms we are looking at either a room in the Haven or Suite class. I noticed in looking at prices the Suite class rooms are considerably less expensive; however, it mentions you still get the butler and concierge service. So my question is what exactly is the difference betwen the two and is it worth the extra cost? Specifically I was looking at a S4 class Suite which would be a 2 Bedroom Deluxe Family Suite with Balcony vs the H4 (The Haven Owner's Suite with Large Balcony) or H6 (The Haven 2-Bedroom Family Villa with Balcony) class in the Haven both of which are around $1K more in cost. Obviously what something is worth can be subjective but just curious if what the differences between them truly are and if anyone has stayed in them which they would recommend. Thanks
  8. I was reading from a list of extras that the Jade includes and it mentioned a self service laundromat. Is this correct? 🤞
  9. I know the NCL Jewel’s DOS’s on the 15th deck have been revamped and now you have 2 separate rooms - bedroom and living room with sofa, 2 bathrooms and a huge walk-in closet and master bathroom. Does anyone know if the Jade DOS’s on deck 15 (15500, 15000) have been remodeled yet to this layout? Also anyone know when the Jade is scheduled for a drydock? Just spent 17 days in February on the Spirit following her drydock and never again! What a mess. TIA.
  10. does anyone have one? it is room 11139. or how big is it?
  11. Ok, a bit of an odd question but after 35+ cruises, and 5 on NCL my husband and I have concluded that the most important cabin feature to us is having the bed by the balcony door, rather than having it closer to the cabin door. To us, that makes it much easier to get around, not having to go around the bed. So, today I booked cabin 10586 (Cat BA) on a 12/21/21 cruise on the Jade, a ship we have been on before and liked. I asked our travel agent to make sure about the bed placement so she said she looked up cabin photos and the bed is by the balcony. But I looked up photos, too, and I see the opposite. Does anyone know for sure? Or does anyone know how to figure out which cabins have which placement. I know how to figure it out on Celebrity, but except for Epic, with its curvy walls, I cannot figure out NCL. thanks!
  12. New to NCL. We were supposed to cruise this past March on the Pearl, Western Caribbean itinerary. Looking at the Jade ("club suite") or Breakaway "Large Balcony" next March. We are a family of 3 (daughter will be 17 at the time of the cruise). Which is your favourite? Pros? Cons? Any info would be appreciated. Stay well everyone.
  13. Having to reschedule daughter’s college graduation British Isles cruise to next May. First time on Norwegian. We had a two bedroom suite on the Star. We will have my husband and me and my daughter and two friends. Would you recommend two club suite balcony rooms or the two bedroom suite in the haven? We are going to have quite a bit of credit. TIA!
  14. I booked a suite in the Haven on the Jade for Thanksgiving (having had our spring break cruise cancel). Does the Jade Haven have beverage service if you are hanging out in the Haven pool area? Thanks!
  15. Email today notifying us that our Delta Flights for 14-Day British Isles, Norway & Ireland from Amsterdam, May 16-30, 2020. What will we do with a billion dollars of Delta e Ticket credit money ? When will NCL cancel?!
  16. Waiting to hear what is going to happen in Europe, currently all closed. We fly to Rome late Apr for a 15 day from Rome. We are in our 70's and CDC in saying no cruising for months. When will NCL actually cancel?
  17. My husband and I have been on the Jade twice. We love it We collect "pressed pennies" -- we had 2 from the Jade... but lost them (long story) Anyone riding on the Jade soon and willing to make two pressed pennies - and then mail them to me? Happy to send the money to cover the cost of the pennies and the mail!
  18. Please NCL, tell us if you are going to Cancel the Jade 27th cruise. Give us the time to make alternate arrangements, don't leave us hanging, Is this Cruise Going Ahead or Not.? It is not FAIR to your guests to keep us in the dark. One day the itinerary disappears and then reappears the next day. JUST TELL US. What is the Jade going to do when it disembarks it passengers on the 17th. now that the 17th Feb cruise is cancelled? Is it going to sit in Singapore for 10 days and wait for the passengers sailing on the 27th? Come on, give your passengers some notice.
  19. Do the suites on the Jade or any Jewel class ship have use of the Haven sun deck? Thanks

  21. We love the Spirit with its glass elevators .. has the Jade similar elevators ? thanks
  22. Hi everyone, We're planning on sailing on the Jade (2/27). We know, there are risks of cancellations, but we're going to book last minute because we have the flexibility. Can anyone advise on the vegan options offered now? We've done a bunch of research on menus in the MDRs, Topsiders, O'sheehan's,etc , but can't find much recent info. We know that vegan items are appearing very fast on cruise ships, so maybe a 2018's menu isn't up to date now in 2020. We enjoy "gourmet" dishes and also burgers and fast foods. Thank you for your help, Jacques
  23. I’m pumped to be on the Jade out of Singapore in January. I was on the very unique NCL ship, the Epic, this past May and provided some tips such as for breakfast and lunch at the buffet, you can go downstairs to the Italian restaurant where it’s far less busy and there is staff to take drink orders. Anyone have any tips or advice on the Jade?
  24. Already booked the Jade but now I see the Star cruise which is some of the same ports with a couple extra stops. They both leave from NY within a week of each other end of April 2021. Have never cruised outside of the carribean or Hawaii and I know this will not be a warm weather cruise. Any input between the 2 would be appreciated. Thanks
  25. It looks like Star and Jade will be in and around Southampton and Amsterdam in the Summer of 2021 but there are no itineraries. Does anyone have a recollection when similar itineraries for 2020 were announced? I tried looking at NCL press releases but couldn’t figure it out and the search feature here on CC is pretty rough.
