Jade- Palma de Mallorca

Die Küste und der Strand von Mallorca

The Jade started from Palma Port. We were on the sunny island of Majorca, for a change from the island vacation we decided on a cruise from Palma de Mallorca with the Norwegian Jade. Our first trip with NCL. Pure joy!

How to get from Palma Airport to the NCL Jade

I was incredibly excited about the Freestyle Cruising. The Jade started from Palma Port. The port can be reached either with a shuttle from the airport, by taxi or else easily by public transport. From Palma airport the airport bus (line 1 Aeropuerto) for 3, – € per person to Placa d’Espanya in Palma, where you can get out and walk about, or you can go directly to the harbor. Just stay on the bus. The station to get off is: Port de Palma (Estació Marítima) (about 13 stops from Placa d’Espanya). In the port of Palma de Mallorca, the Jade greeted us at the Muelle Poinente South with its blue-green painted bug and full of expectation we six went aboard. A Aida was also in port. We had booked three balcony cabins. If you have time in Palma you can read here to find out what to do in Palma.

Welcome on board of the NCL Jade

With Freestyle Cruising there are no set meal times and we had no reservations or table. There were 11 restaurants on board, of which 4 were at no extra charge. Among the 4 at no extra charge were the Grand Pacific Restaurant (Deck 7), the Alizar Restaurant (Deck 6), the Garden Café (Deck 12) and the Blue Lagoon Cafe (24 h, Deck 8). The Grand Pacific and the Alizar were a la carte and the Garden Cafe hosted the buffet. You could track the assignments of the restaurants on monitors and if all seats were taken, you got a pager, which notified you by flashing if anything was available. We were skeptical, whether we would like it and how it would work out with 6 people. But we also found the idea great, not to be bound to fixed hours. I tell you here directly: It worked great! The maximum time we had to wait was 20 minutes and we always had a table for just the six of us, and often the same table. Perfect! Here we go!

Cast off lines and onwards to Barcelona!
