Norwegian Jade Cruise Ship Tour

December 3, 2019

Ahoy cruisers, welcome aboard the recently
refurbished Norwegian Jade. Let’s start in the Maltings Whisky Bar. Just next to that is the Mixers Cocktail and
Martini Bar. Heading down the ship we arrive at the Jade
Club Casino… …which has stuck to its original theme with
the lanterns on the roof. There are plenty of machines and games so you
will not get bored. Right next-door is the Stardust theatre. I love this Vancian inspired hallway. There is ample seating in the theatre and
it has tiered seating all around. Let’s follow David up a few flights of the
newly decorated hallways. The Bliss lounge has had a big transformation
with new modern décor. Here you can dance the night away. Next up we have three Asian inspired venues. Sake, Jasmine and the Sushi Bar. Jasmine is a complementary Asian fusion restaurant. And next door is Teppanyaki. The speciality
Japanese restaurant where the chefs put on a fun show and cook right at your table. Looking down now to the Magnum Champagne Bar. Right ahead is the cigar lounge… …and next to that is Le Bistro – the speciality
French restaurant on-board. Oh, la la! Veuve Clicquot is on tap in this
beautifully decorated, elaborate restaurant. It centennially has a certain “je ne sais
quoi”. “Ah Oui… arc de triomphe… au revoir….” Okay now you can see the new carpeting and
new décor in the hallways It looks very fresh and modern This brings us to two of the speciality restaurants. Moderno and Cagney’s. Cagney’s is an American steak speciality
restaurant. Here you can enjoy dinner for two in front
of your own fireplace. This is Moderno Charrascaria – The Brazilian
Restaurant. It has great panoramic windows all around
the restaurant. Now we are heading down to one of the main
dining rooms… The Grand Pacific. And indeed “grand” it is. It’s very lavish
and beautifully decorated here. Okay our favourite part of any cruise ship
is the buffet. And on the Norwegian Jade, it’s the Garden
Café. Here you can find a selection of… well…
just about anything. Next up… O’sheehan’s Bar and Grill. This is a new addition to the Jade. O’sheehan’s serves some great pub food
all complementary. And it looks down on the atrium including
the atrium bar and café. So, this is my Titanic moment. Where is Leonardo Dicaprio? Coming up on your left is Tides Shipping. And ahead is the restaurant reservations desk,
guest services and shore excursions desk. Yes… that really is real marble. The atrium is a casual space with music throughout
the day. Next up we have the photo gallery. Which has had a complete overhaul with digital
screens. Here you can “Snap Up” all you “Snaps”
… Get it? … No And right though is the Art Gallery and Internet
Café. Now let’s look at the Spinnaker Lounge.
Which has also had a great refresh. There are some rally comfortable seats where
you can sit back and relax. Enjoy the entertainment with a nice drink. I will have a martini please… shaken not
stared. And if you are planning on getting hitched.
There is also a chapel on-board. And a place we don’t see often… the fitness
centre. Go on and treat yourself at the Mandara Spa
and Salon. And a place to pick up a book or just a quiet
space to read is the Library. Oooh… Stephen King. Let start the cabin tours. First an inside stateroom. Which you can see has had a few updates with
a new television. Next, look at an ocean view stateroom. And another ocean view stateroom. This is the standard bathroom for ocean view,
inside and balcony staterooms. Next is a balcony stateroom. And here is a mini-suite balcony stateroom. Which is larger than a standard stateroom
with a larger seating area. The bathroom is also bigger enjoying a bath tub. Next is the big boy of staterooms. This is the three-bedroom garden villa. This is just the entrance. Its bigger than
an inside cabin! I can see myself twinkling away on the ivories. … You are always twinkling away. And look at that view, these mirrored windows
allow you to see outside. But no one can see you inside. You also have your own private courtyard area
with a hot tub. This area is massive and spans over two whole decks. This is the master bathroom that I think is
bigger than my first flat. The master bedroom is just as beautiful with
plenty of room… …. and panoramic views all around. The other bedrooms are just as grand and just
as comfortable. All with their own en suite bathrooms. Wow! This is
your own personal staircase up to the Haven Owners Suite. This suite sleeps 4 and has some great panoramic
views. As well as two balconies’. And a large bathroom where you can take a
bath with a view of the ocean. Next is the Haven Courtyard which is exclusive
to guests staying in Haven Suites. The Haven Courtyard has a retractable roof so you can enjoy these facilities whatever the
weather. This is the Haven sundeck which is exclusive
to Haven guests. Now let’s look at the main pool area. Here you find 2 large pools and 4 hot
tubs. Here is the Pit Stop bar. There is so much room so you can sit back
and relax. Or grab a bite to eat. And you can grab a bite from the Topsider’s
Bar and Grill. Are you feeling healthy? … No I will just grab a burger and a cake
please. Thank you for joining us on this tour of the
recently refurbished Norwegian Jade. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. That’s all for this time… ~~~~ Happy Cruising ~~~~

    Great job guys! Very good HD video! Great overall tour. My husband says the video and audio were well balanced. We liked David's cameos throughout the video. Can't wait for the next one!

  • Reply Joseph Dadey May 22, 2017 at 11:53 pm

    Another great video! I'm fairly certain this is a sister ship to the NCL Jewel, which I went on last year. I believe it is also scheduled for a refurbishment.

    Great vlog there. Very, very helpful, interesting and with that hint of fun. Well done! We need more informative vlogs like this. Enjoyed every minute of it and little shots of David here, there and everywhere. Plus the addition of Ben being bi-lingual, where do your talents end? Well done again. Look forward to more. Mange tout Ben, Mange tout!!!!!

    Great video, the best I've seen covering the Jade refit. I like the way they have refurbished her but retained some of the best original features.

    Hi Guys, love your vids. general question. We booked 2 weeks on a princess cruise next month in the med. We took an inside for £2000 because a balcony was £3000. Are the balconies really worth 50% more?

  • Reply Teresa de Billot June 4, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    Great video and report, guys. We've only been on the Epic before but Jade looks much brighter and has an Art Deco feel, which I love. We're thinking of going on the Jade next year on a TA and this has made it even more likely!

  • Reply Choi Mei Saunders June 9, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    Thank you so much for this very informative video about the NCL Jade.
    My husband Grant Saunders is a stage Hypnotist and is performing at The Stardust Theatre in June & July 2017. Unfortunately I could not go with him got two fur baby's Elmo & Hercules (cats) to look after.

    At least I can watch this detailed video and see where he is staying & working that week his away. I have nearly watch all of your videos and subscribed. Keep up with the good work guys!!

    I was just on this EXACT boat 9 months ago. Can you do a review of what you think of NCL as a cruise line, just like you did with RCL?

  • Reply Bradly C June 23, 2017 at 1:02 am

    Are you guys platinum level, which is why you got to tour the ship?

  • Reply DJ Wolve June 27, 2017 at 9:53 am

    My first ever cruise was on-board this cruise ship.  Wow how this ship has changed!!  I will never forget it, I still remember what this ship looked like before this latest update to the ship.

    9 years ago Norwegian Jade was my first cruise experience!! 2008, her first season in Europe!! She still keep those wonderful colours everywhere along the ship!! everything looks fresh, colourful, alive!! The only area I think got worst it's the pool area! No more slide for kids and too much space, quite empty actually! Anyway, I'd love too come back aboard to visit her still!! Btw, Great footage!! 👍😉

    Looks a bit different from when we had our cruise on the Jade in 2015. wish we could go on another cruise on the Jade, Brilliant ship and crew.

  • Reply Derek Allyn August 23, 2018 at 11:32 pm

    So my only cruise was on the Norwegian Wind in July of 1999. We are scheduled for the Getaway in July 2019. So this ship – The Jade – reminds me of the Wind. Small and more intimate.

    Thank you! Going on this ship for the Panama canal cruise in November. This helped keep me excited!

  • Reply Alex Alvarez September 17, 2018 at 5:02 am

    I was a crew member on this very ship when it was brand new and named "Pride of Hawaii." Thank you for the video, it brought back so many memories from 2006. You missed footage of Alizar and Papa's Italian Kitchen Restaurants. One day, I hope to return to this ship as a passenger. So wild this see these spaces again.

    Excellent Video guys! Professionally done! Very Nice!

    great video, so nice to see refurb going to a modern, clean lines and gorgeous color. Do you know if they have a rear aft rain pool area like on the getaway? I really enjoy the fresh cool water, the salt water pools are bit much for my eyes 🙁

  • Reply Xalty 1 October 9, 2018 at 7:42 pm

    Just saying when I went on this ship in 2008 I pushed the ice cream machine to the limit and got told off by the captain………😂😂

    Great video! You were able to capture the coziness of the ship and something I find missing from some of the massive ships being built today. Thanks guys.

    We cruised on the Jade in the Med in 2013 (pre-refit). Thanks for a great video in-sight on what she's like now. Will definitely have to find a cruise on her again soon.

    Loving your videos. Would it be asking too much to point out the smoking section for us social pariahs?

  • Reply Andrew Taylor January 9, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Thanks for this guys! You have the best cruise tours! I’m going on the NCL Jewel in March and think it will be pretty much like this after her redo. Happy Cruising!

  • Reply Karen Haselman January 17, 2019 at 2:01 am

    The smoking makes anywhere near aweful

  • Reply JAMES FERNANDEZ January 26, 2019 at 12:38 am

    Not only the slide, they changed everything in the pool area! Very much poor, no colour, too simple, too bored! Even the lamps as Palm Trees were removed! I've been on board in Sep 2008, just after, when she came from Hawaii to be based in Europe and was completely different! Also the ceiling on Aloha bar, the main area on the ship, is much more simple now! All the Ship was full of vibrant colours and tropical feeling! Now might be more modern and updated to European standards but sucks! Honestly sometimes I don't get these restyling's from the companies! Anyway, nice footage and review!
