Norwegian Jade offers most of the facilities that you’d expect from a large ship, but none of the bells and whistles found on the massive new ships. There’s a pool, large theatre, gym, nightclub and a casino that’s themed to look like Chinese restaurant in Woking, circa 1986.
There’s also an oddly large Duty Free shop that doesn’t seem to sell anything remotely appealing and takes up space that really should be given over to nice bar or lounge - there really seemed to be nowhere relaxing or quiet for a drink. The Spinnaker Lounge, which should be the setting for a peaceful drink with a beautiful view seems to be used for all manner of quiz and gathering - often multiple events seemed to take place simultaneously, fighting to be heard over each other.
This may have been a function of a ship that was clearly designed for the tropics sailing an itinerary in Northern Europe - when everybody is inside, rather than sunbathing, things are cozy. In a similar vein, there is no covered pool, so forget swimming on most sailing to Norway. Curiously, there is an attractive library and card room featuring menus, models and other artefacts from the United States Line.
