NCL Jade Hamburg Mini Cruise – 29th June 2018

Discover what it means to cruise like a Norwegian on this one-way weekend taster cruise from Southampton to Hamburg.

You'll have two-nights onboard Norwegian Jade - and one sea day - to really enjoy yourself and to see what sets NCL apart from other cruise lines.

Cruise ship

Oh no, the ship has sailed on this cruise

Sorry, the ship has sailed on this mini cruise and I'm sure it was a blast! Never mind though, there are plenty more mini cruises to choose from.

About this cruise

Head to Southampton on Friday 29th June 2018 where you will board Norwegian Jade. The mid-sized ship is a great ship to begin your cruising experience on, and is a good value choice if you want to experience Norwegian Cruise Line without flying long haul to the States or into the heart of the Mediterranean.

The ship was recently refurbished and now looks as good as the latest ships like Norwegian Escape. You'll find plenty of bars, restaurants, and lounges on the ship. The pool deck will be popular in the height of summer. If indulgence is the name of the game, head to the Mandara Spa.

This itinerary does not have any ports of call en-route from Southampton to Hamburg, so Saturday is a lazy sea day. Here you can do as much or as little as you like.

If you've booked a top end suite in The Haven ship-within-a-ship complex, you'll not only enjoy 24-hour butler service but there's a private sundeck too.

Speaking of making a booking, the budget no-frills fare is available on the cheapest cabin grades and is exactly that - no bells and no whistles. However, you're able to pay to upgrade to the 'Premium All Inclusive' fare. Having played with the quote calculator, it looks to cost in the region of £20 to £50 per person depending on the grade, so it might be worth considering as it includes:

  • A wide choice of premium alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, and bottled water
  • Selected speciality coffees with meals
  • Limited Internet access
  • The service charge and gratuities (which you'll otherwise pay onboard)

Before you know it, Sunday morning sadly arrives and it's time to leave at Hamburg in Germany.

This is a repositional cruise that starts in Southampton and ends in Hamburg. You'll need to arrange onward travel to get back to the UK (flights back to the UK are NOT included in the price of this cruise, so you'll need to book these separately). Budget airlines regularly fly between Hamburg and London, which you may wish to consider.

If you don't need to get back to work ready for Monday morning, I suggest booking a night or two in a hotel in Hamburg to explore this modern maritime city before you head back home.

So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your cruise ship will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.
