There are a number of reasons why Norwegian cruises are so popular. A master of homeland cruising, the cruise line offers a number of departure points from US homeports such as Seattle, New Orleans, New York, Boston, Tampa Bay, etc. By phasing out their older ships, the cruise line aims at operating the youngest fleet of ships in the cruise industry. The new ships include some sterling amenities and facilities. From interconnecting cabins and luxury villas to champagne bars, electronic dinner reservation systems, and onboard bowling alleys, Norwegian cruises have taken freestyle cruising to a whole new level.
With cruise ships that fall under the Breakaway Class, Breakaway Plus Class, Dawn Class, Jewel Class, Sun Class, and more, choosing just one ship from Norwegian cruises can be a daunting prospect. Let’s make the choice a wee bit easier for you by giving you a fair idea of what the top peer-reviewed ships have to offer.
One of the Jewel Class of Norwegian cruises, the Norwegian Jewel is reviewed as the very best of all Norwegian cruises and ships. Launched in 2005, this ship is the flagship of the Jewel Class, and caters to 2,376 passengers. The ship has seen a few years on the waters but is known for being a comfortable one. The décor might be considered a little dated by some, but the Jewel is a roomy and large ship offering plenty of entertainment, dining, and other fun options. The Norwegian Jewel is also a popular option owing to the number of itineraries it has on offer. Choose from sailing to and from Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, Panama Canal, Sawyer Glacier, Pacific Coastal, Glacier Bay, etc. Norwegian cruises with the Jewel range from 5- to 14-day options.
The Norwegian Jade is also from the Jewel Class of Norwegian cruises, and is reckoned to be as good as the Jewel. Known for offering a truly global experience, the Jade was launched in 2006 and caters to 2,402 passengers. On the Jade, you can take your pick from a number of stunning dining options that include diner-style cuisine to a French bistro. The Courtyard villas aboard the Jade are more expensive than the other accommodation options, but offer a number of perks – peer-reviews consider it well-worth the cost. Itineraries include runs across the whole of Europe (Adriatic Greece, Turkey, Mediterranean, Greek Isles, Spain, etc.) and the Caribbean, and range from 7- to 28-days and longer.
