Recently on our Norwegian Jade cruise, I had a nice family approach me and offer me a chance to tour their Garden Villa! They told me that they read my blog and figured that you guys would like it!! I really appreciate it, and thank you so much if you are reading this!
The Norwegian Jade features two three bedroom Garden Villas on deck fourteen in the Haven. The Villas include a sauna, a hot tub, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three balconies, an exclusive private sundeck, a grand piano, a bar, a dining room table, and an outdoor table that seats eight, a king bed in the master bedroom, and a queen mattress in the other two bedrooms. The suite can fit up to 8 passengers, coming in at a total of 5,750 sq. ft.
For 10 days, the room starts at about $13,999. Is it worth the money? I think it most definitely is. You get a whole section of the ship all to yourself. You wouldn’t have to leave your room the whole cruise if you so desired. You have 24 hour butler service and your own hot tub and sundeck at your finger tips.
Norwegian Jade Garden Villa Living Room
The living room offers a large sectional couch, a fifty inch TV, a desk, a grand piano, and some amazing floor to ceiling windows looking out over the pool deck. In the living room, you also have the option to have 2 roll away beds (one pictured above), or three roll away cribs.
The kitchen/dining area includes a bar stocked with bottles of water and espresso shots with an espresso machine, a large dinning room table with seating for eight, and a great view! If you wanted to have a big family dinner, or invite a few of your friends over for cocktails, you would be more than prepared! I’ve even heard of guests holding their Cruise Critic Meet and Greets in their Garden Villas!
Master Bedroom and Bathroom
The first bedroom off the foyer is the master bedroom. The master bedroom features a king size bed with an average size TV, a pull out couch, a desk, a DVD player, a chair, floor to ceiling windows, and access to the private sundeck through a sliding glass door. The room is very spacious and there is more than enough room for two people. The master bathroom also offers his and her sinks, a large Jacuzzi tub, a shower with many different water settings, a walk-in closet, and another door to access the private sundeck.
Second and Third Bedrooms
The two bedrooms include a queen size bed, one bedroom with a pullout couch, a decent sized TV, a desk, multiple cabinets for storage, a dressing area, a full bathroom including a bathtub, and a balcony in each room with a lounge chair and a normal chair. The rooms are huge! They are the size of a normal balcony cabin. Imagine waking up in your own suite, in an even bigger suite, and going out on your own balcony every morning!
Norwegian Jade Garden Villa Private Sundeck
The private sundeck allows you to escape from the rest of the passengers on board with a hot tub, another table with eight seats, 6 lounge chairs, and a sauna off of the hot tub. This sundeck has more to offer than the pool deck on deck 12! When you go up the stairs to the other deck, you can faintly hear the music and chatter of the pool deck. It didn’t seem to bother me, but other passengers may find it annoying. That is something to consider if you book this Villa.
Would I book this suite? I most definitely would, if their were more people in my party. It is pretty pricey, but if you use the right travel agent, you have the money, and want to have a unique once in a lifetime experience, then this is the stateroom for you! Norwegian Cruise Line really pulled out all of the stops with this Villa!
I would also, once again, like to say a HUGE thank you to the amazing people who let me come into their stateroom and take pictures of everything for Cruise Everyday!
