She was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, and entered service in February 2006. Originally she operated as Pride of Hawaii, for NCL America's Hawaii operations, before being renamed Norwegian Jade in 2008 and joining the main NCL fleet.
With a length of 294m and a tonnage of 93,500 she can accommodate 2,000 passengers and just over 1,000 crew.
Depsite a fantastic morning in town, by the time of her departure this afternoon the rain clouds had gathered, and it was under grey skies that Norwegian Jade sailed to Southampton to complete her current cruise.
