warriorking - Kindly allow me to add my voice to that of Cruise Fanatic and LisaP in welcoming you aboard to Cruise-Chat.com - which many of us feel is THE Place to Be when you are "on the beach" and between cruises! NCL has become awesome with the "freestyle"concept and the ways in which it is implemented aboard the various ships! Indeed, it is an industry trendsetter which has become mimicked by nearly all the cruise lines in some manner shape and form!
I've not cruised aboard the NCL Jade as yet but I have enjoyed her sister the NCL Gem and her first cousin the NCL Dawn - they are two of my favorite ships. No doubt the NCL Jade will be, for you and family, equally enjoyable.
I truly hope you will visit our pages often and share with us your cruise expereinces! Stay in frequent touch!!
