On October 25, 2011, it was our last sea day on the Norwegian Jade cruise. Ivan was already up when I woke up at 9:30 am. He was up at 7:30 am.
We had the breakfast buffet. We went to check out the Family Dodgeball, but nobody was up there. Ivan noticed that the court was all wet.
We played some table tennis. Ivan wasn’t feeling very good, so we went back to the room.
Ivan took a nap while I worked on the blog.
We went to play Where in the World Trivia. Three people joined our group. You had to answer with the city. There were questions like The Beatles which is so obvious and What city is 3 times bigger than Paris which was Berlin. We ended up in 3rd place.
Ivan, Lil Dave and I went to get lunch at the buffet.
Later in the evening, we went to see the show The Jade international Crew Show. It had the staff performing. A couple boring singers and a juggler who kept messing up came on. A group of Filipinos did the traditional Filipino dance tinikling. Check out a video of tinikling here (it’s not from the show).
Another group of Filipinos did a modern dance which was really good. Some of the Entertainment staff did a show called Fountains. There were all dressed up in togas and would put water in their mouth and then spit the water at the person in front of them.
Ivan and I thought it was funny for 5 minutes.. and then it got REAL old. At the end, The cruise director Jill said we were part of the family. We didn’t really enjoy the entertainment and food on the Norwegian Jade. Carnival is a much better cruise line company. I don’t know how Carnival is considered a budget cruise line since they offer a lot of things for free like a sushi buffet and pizza which they didn’t have on the Norwegian cruise ship.
Ivan and I went to get a quick dinner. Ivan felt horrible for some reason. We each had a boring clam chowder and the Norwegian salmon. We got the flourless molten cake for dessert. It was delicious!!
Ivan went to bed early. I packed up most of our stuff since we’d be back in Italy tomorrow.
