Activities and Entertainment
The NCL Jade has enough to keep you busy from the moment you wake to the moment you go to bed. Spend the days picking out bargains at the Galleria Boutiques, working up a healthy sweat on the tennis courts or simply enjoying a great book by the shimmering pool. Be rejuvenated for a fun night ahead at the Ying & Yang Health Spa and Beauty Salon where guests can enjoy a wide range of treatment in the most tranquil surroundings.
After the sun has set, grab a seat for the fantastic Broadway and Vegas-style shows in the Venetian styled Stardust Theatre or try your luck at the tables in the sensational Jade Club Casino. Children are especially well-catered for by the Tree Top Kid’s Club and the Sapphire Pool. There’s a video arcade and the Wipeout Club for teens will keep the young ones busy with some air hockey or computer games.
NCL’s incredible reputation for excellent, yet affordable cruise holidays is summed up in the NCL Jade. She puts the power to choose exactly what you want to do firmly in your hands. With such an incredible range of activities and dining options on offer, you can handpick your own holiday and make sure your well-earned break away is truly unforgettable.
It’s no surprise that NCL is the four-time World Travel Award winner of the ‘Europe's Leading Cruise Line’ accolade. Each ship is constructed with the perfect cruise holiday in mind, right down to the little details. From the exotic Alizar Dining Room inspired by Mark Rothko's artwork to the incredibly well-stocked library, no desired facility gets overlooked. There’s an internet cafe in case you want to stay in touch with loved ones at home and there’s even a chapel on board.
There’s a luxurious stateroom for every pocket on board the NCL Jade. Budget-conscious travellers can choose from a range of compact cabins complete with En Suite, mini-fridge, TV and facilities to make that essential cuppa. Those looking to splash about may want to opt for the impossibly glamorous garden villas. These waterborne wonders boast a staggering 4,500 square feet and include your own private courtyard and swimming pool. A voyage in this kind of accommodation makes for a cruise holiday you and your family will never forget. All of the 1,000 cabins are tastefully decorated with touches of warm, welcoming wood echoing the golden age of cruise travel with a clean, modern twist. The interconnecting cabins are a huge boon for family cruise holiday. Mum and dad can enjoy some peace and privacy, safe in the knowledge that the kids are just across the hall. Best of all, the interconnected cabins are graded, so you can make the most of family accommodation with a balcony or even a penthouse suite.
The Grand Pacific and Alizar main dining rooms are perfect for families as there’s no cover charge. The top chefs serve up cruise classics such as prime, juicy steak and fresh lobster alongside contemporary dishes such as light spring rolls and fragrant chick pea stew. Walk-ins are welcome every night and the warm atmosphere makes for a pleasurable dining experience time and time again. NCL Jade really stands out in the number of speciality dining venues available. Passengers can choose from appetizing Italian favourites at Papa’s and surf and turf flavours at Cageny’s Steakhouse, to mouth-watering meats at Moderno Churrascaria’s Brazilian-style grill and invigorating Asian-fusion creations at the Jasmine Garden. If you want to be super-organised, it’s well worth booking in at these amazing venues well in advance.
