Sailing in the Mediterranean and Western Caribbean, the 2,402-passenger Norwegian Jade is a midsize ship that still feels small and packs in family-friendly activities. (Picture a twisting waterslide, basketball courts, and Vegas- and Broadway-style shows.) And now, since its 2017 renovation, the ship has a more contemporary look and new restaurants, bars, and lounges. You can grab a cocktail at Sugarcane Mojito Bar, dance well into the night at Bliss Lounge, and order complimentary food at O'Sheehan's pub or at the poolside 1950's-style diner, The Pit Stop.

What We Love

Spa Staterooms: If you're craving a deeper relaxation, book a Spa Mini-Suite, a Spa Balcony cabin, or the Haven Spa Suite. These rooms come with access to the Mandara Spa and complimentary use of the Thermal Suite, sauna, hydrotherapy pools, and heated loungers.

Malting's: This intimate bar is ideal for those who would rather sip a dram of whiskey or a pint of lager instead of a tropical frozen beverage. It's also a great spot to hit before dinner or after a show.

Improved Spaces: Thanks to the ship's 2017 renovation, specialty restaurant Moderno now has sea views, Cagney's Steakhouse has more seating and a virtual fireplace, and the ship's color scheme is more tastefully muted than its previous in-your-face palette.

Best Known For

La Cucina and Le Bistro: The ship's Italian and French restaurants (priced a la carte) are worth an upgrade from the main dining room. The ambience plays as much of a role as the food: La Cucina is decked out in decor inspired by the Tuscan countryside (complete with a wine wall), while Le Bistro has the charm of a Parisian cafe.

The Haven Suites and Villa: The "ship within a ship" area has a private concierge as well as butler service. Book a suite here and you get access to the courtyard with a private pool, sundeck, fitness area, and hot tub.

Who It's Best For

The Schedule-Phobic: Norwegian Cruise Line's signature "Freestyle Cruising" allows you to dine when you want and party when you feel like it. The ship's itineraries in the Med and Caribbean, along with multiple bars and lounges, lively shows, and dance parties, enhance the ship's laid-back vibe.

Budget-Conscious Cruisers: Fares for this ship won't break the bank, with some Caribbean itineraries coming out to as low as $55 per night.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Crowded Outsides: Norwegian Jade has two small pools and just four hot tubs, making space a premium in these hot spots, especially during sea days. Consider yourself warned: Loungers fill up quickly.

Less Exciting Entertainment Than Newer Ships: Shows don't dazzle like they do on the line's newest ships, where you can catch Broadway-caliber productions of "After Midnight" and "Rock of Ages." And though there are plenty of activities, you won't find a bowling alley or rock climbing wall here.
