The Norwegian Jade crew promise to keep passengers engaged day and night with lively nightclubs, award-winning restaurants, a large casino, swimming pools, a relaxing spa, and much more as you travel between ports along beautiful coastlines. There is also a ton of kid-friendly entertainment, so a once-in-a-lifetime vacation may be enjoyed by the entire family.


Norwegian Jade’s complementary dining options include two main dining rooms, a help-yourself buffet, and a range of casual cafés, grills, and on-the-go alternatives, serving a wide variety of culinary delights to please every palate. Additionally, Norwegian Jade’s Main Dining Rooms have a daily-changing menu, Chef’s Signature Dishes, and carefully chosen wine suggestions, ensuring a unique culinary experience at each visit.


Favorite comfort dishes are still available at O’Sheehan’s Neighbourhood Bar & Grill, a restaurant open around-the-clock, or visit The Pit Stop, a novel idea that blends food and entertainment beside the pool. Or have a good time dancing at the brand-new Bliss Ultra Lounge.
