Get a taste of the tropics aboard Norwegian Jade, as she sails the Mediterranean during the summer and the Caribbean during the winter. From the moment you arrive into the port you will instantly recognise the artistic magnitude of such a welcoming design and will be welcomed with open arms to an incredible array of features, including lavish Broadway-style shows, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, waterslides, bars and lounges, and all kinds of entertainment for the younger ones to enjoy in the NCL Youth Programmes.
Norwegian Jade boasts a fantastic range of entertainment features for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you want to laze around the pool and soak up the sun, or get your heart racing from an adrenaline thrill or a workout in the gym, Norwegian Jade offers it all.
The main pool area can be found midship on Deck 12 featuring two pools, four hot tubs and a water slide for added fun! The kids will want to get to the pool early so they can make the most of the waterslide, or the kid’s pool just around corner, and you of course won’t want to waste any precious sunbathing time in the blissful weather.
If you find lazing by the pool boring, you can enjoy the adventurous spirit of NCL’s Norwegian Jade at the sports court, where you can challenge friends and family to a game or two of basketball and volleyball. Perhaps you’d rather practise your swing at one of two golf driving nets available or take a run around the ship on the jogging track that encircles the ship on Deck 13?
Shopaholics amongst us can peruse the shops for new swimwear and brand named goods in The Galleria Boutiques. Alternatively, if you’re looking for an original work of art by well-known artists head to the Art Gallery that is located on Deck 7.
A fully state of the art video gaming arcade will bring out the big kid in all of us and makes for a great place for children to meet friends of their own age. Norwegian Jade also offers an incredible amount of other activities for everyone younger children to the teens to participate in throughout their cruise, with their very own social hubs and nightspots available as part of the NCL Youth Programmes.
The sun may go down at the end of the day but entertainment carries on throughout the night and you’ll be spoilt for choice. Enjoy a glass of champagne at Magnum’s Wine Bar or head to Mixers Martini and Cocktail Bar for a freshly made concoction. With bright orange accents, the ultra-modern, centrally located Bliss Lounge and Bar is often the scene for on board trivia and live music with comfy sofas, chairs and tables. Norwegian Jade also hosts the White Hot Party theme night, where you can get dressed up in your favourite white outfit and dance the night away to old school tunes and current chart hits.
Alongside the incredible choice of bars and lounges there are many innovative evening spots to enjoy. Stardust Theatre hosts Broadway and Vegas-style productions on a nightly basis in an amazing showcase of musical talent. The Jade Club Casino is also a great place to spend an evening and you can try your hand at blackjack, poker, roulette and even craps, against a backdrop of vintage travelling circuses. If you’re looking for a quieter spot for the evening drop by The Lifestyles Room, where you can read a book, play a game of cards or just sip on a drink and watch the world go by.
Not only does Norwegian Jade strive to impress when it comes to keeping guests entertained, she also boasts an incredible nineteen dining options. With NCL’s Freestyle Cruising, you can dine whenever you wish without the worry of seating times throughout your cruise.

If these venues don’t sound like your thing there are plenty more to choose from, including the majestic Jasmine Garden Asian Restaurant, the ornate French dining room Le Bistro, or the Bali Hai Bar & Grill, where the setting attempts to capture the feeling of a desert island whilst serving some of the finest dishes at sea.
