NCL JADE

APRIL TRANSATLANTIC 2018

The JADE is a wonderful ship, especially following her refit last year with upgraded soft goods, furnishings, and the removal of her original (dated) glass lighting domes in the atrium. Don't hesitate sailing on her if you haven't, or any of her sisters. NCL is upping the game. Passenger space ratio is good and the crew seems to respect her. Expansive full-circle promenade deck -a lacking feature on many new ships. This Transatlantic was great with some large swells. The ship handles really well with her 28' foot draft running about 20 knots for the full trip. With her spacious outer decks, I'd love to sail her to the fjords of Norway, Iceland or anywhere again.
