Speciality Dining

If you're more of a Coq au Vin kind or person, or simply wish to widen your palate while on holiday, you may wish to choose from Norwegian Jade's selection of speciality restaurants for a cover charge or simply a la carte.

Moderno and Teppanyaki are the two cover charge restaurants. Moderno is perfect for anyone looking for a unique experience, where you can enjoy meats such as beef, lamb, chicken and pork carved by the tableside. Sit on a shared table around a large steel grill and watch the chef slice, chop and grill, steak, chicken and seafood in front of you in Teppanyaki.

The rest of the speciality restaurants are à la carte, including Cagney's Steakhouse, offering choice cuts of Certified Angus Beef and delicious truffle fries and La Cucina, for a taste of Tuscan countryside.

Reminiscent of a Parisian cafe, Le Bistro offers a romantic, intimate dining setting with elegant decors.

Get ready for some fantastic full scale productions including Blazing Boots, a thrilling tribute to pop country and showcasing songs from the very best including Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift, sure to get your boots blazing. Watch Elements, a show that revels in earth, air, water and fire for an incredible spectacle of sensual delight, enchantment and wonder.

Do you ever feel like the right person didn't win on a TV talent contest? Now you can be the judge. Watch four talented singers compete for your vote in a show sure to get the whole family moving. If that's not enough for you, attend one of Norwegian Jade's Soul Rockin' Nights for a high-energy party.

You can find an excellent selection of things to read in the well-stocked library and can keep in touch with loved ones at the Internet Cafe. You'll never struggle to find somewhere to sit poolside when there are 323 deck chairs and 144 sun lounges either.

With the Body Waves Fitness Centre open from 6am to 11pm, there is ample opportunity to remain active onboard, including aerobics and fitness classes daily. To round off the day’s activities, why not watch the sunset on an evening walk on the jogging track?

Customer reviews for Norwegian Jade

Very good overall but not quite what we envisaged our holiday to be. We like a nice steady holiday at a fair pace but felt the holiday was a bit hectic and not what we have had on previous cruises we have been. It was described as freestyle but felt like it was a free for all. We wanted a little quieter and more relaxing atmosphere with out having to get of the ship. The ship and staff we could not fault - it was the whole theme of the holiday which it wasn’t for us.

I took my 90 year old Mother on this cruise who uses a wheelchair most of the time, and the cruise was excellent. We couldn’t fault anything about it and have left a deposit to go again in the next four years but I can’t wait that long. We we all inclusive so food was no problem, just a very high standard and all staff were so helpful throughout the ship. The air conditioning in the ship was a little too cold for me but that is the only comment to make. Thank you for a very memorable time especially with my Mum who was very impressed.

This was our first time on the Jade and my wife and I had a wonderful experience on board. The stateroom was lovely and the crew were very helpful. The entertainment was superb in the Theatre and in the bars. For the quiet drink after dinner I would recommend the Whisky Bar on deck 6 its an ideal spot to people watch.
