Not Happy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Mar 21, 2014


We waited a whole year for this cruise and when we finally got on the ship all we seen were unhappy faces. This was our 3rd cruise with Norwegian and probadly our last. The crew except for our cabin steward who always greeted us with a smile and the girl at the buffet spraying your hands everyone else was either rude or just plain acted like they had no desire in being on this ship. One of my charges was put on my newphew's bill so when he questioned it they not only gave him a copy of his bill but also of mine, never once asking for ID. They switched a charge from my brother in law's bill to mine again no ID. I never seen anything like this on a ship before and this was out 12th cruise no ID unheard of. So beware of your charges and privacy on your own because they are not going to. Like I said they just didn;t want to be there and really didn't care about the passengers . Thumbs down Norwegian.

Worst cruise ever!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


Water slide was removed with out ever informing us for our 8 and 10 year old! 

Loaded with drunk college kids falling all over the place having sex in pool- my kids were asked to get out of pool to accommodate thrm even got trampled by thrm. Kids were bored . If ncl is going to accommodate to the college spring breakers there are other players out there and we will definetly not bd sailing with them ever agsin. After making phone calls and emails and not getting any correspondence back we are severely dissappointed with norwegian. Definetly has gone down hill!!

Our first cruise, we liked it. The teen club was good, although at first we could not find the personnel involved and mistook the game room for the whole experience. Signage would have helped when we missed the personnel. I found 1 single 'aquaintance' activity; maybe 2 on consecutive days or 2 on the same day would get more people to come.

Tell people to budget for pictures!! Online purchasing passage, excursions +, were a pleasure to use. Also the baggage tags to print were great to have beforehand. Thanks for everything!

NO WATERSLIDE!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


We booked this cruise ship because it was advertised as having a water slide.  My kids were excited about having a waterslide to play on for 5 days.  When we boarded the ship we found no water slide!  You can imagine the disappointment for all of us!  We went to guest relations to inquire and this was their answer: "The water slide was 5 years old and was having some maintenance issues.  Also, it was in the way of the poolside band."  Sounds to me it took up room for the drunks that were shelling out $5 per beer and $10 per cocktail.  There were 2 pools, 1 of them was labeled adult only however there was no child or family only pool.  There was a small kiddie pool area for ages 1-3.  There was also a small splash area but the entire pool area, sun decks, and splash area were overun by springbreakers.  Nothing wrong w/ that, but when your family has no escape from that and your kids are playing in a splash area w/ cigarette butts and glass beer bottles everywhere it's not fun.  The only saving grace was the ship had an excellent kids club w/ awesome counsellors.  In addition to the above, the buffet was the best choice.  The sit down meals were aweful and the wait staff appeared to dislike their jobs as nobody ever cracked a smile.  We have cruised w/ Norwegian in the past and had a great experience, however, after this last cruise we will not sail w/ Norwegian again.

our experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


our main reason for booking with Norwegian this trip was because of the amenities for children. We read on the website that there was a 200 foot

slide, as well as a kids club called Splash Academy.  We were very disappointed to find the slide had been removed. We were further disappointed

to find there was not a  pool for the children. There was a splash area for toddlers, but nothing for children over 4 other then the family pool. I have looked on the website and it still says there is a slide!  It was very difficult to explain to children why there was no slide, since we had talked about it

for 3 months.  I must say the Splash Academy (kids inside play area) was great.

Ship was the best yet- but entertainment company didnt prepare well for bad weather

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Feb 26, 2014


We went on the Live Loud Festival at Seas- it was fun to get to hear a lot of different bands even though I am not a huge music buff. I would have liked maybe one magic show or comedian to break it up. The music was VERY good, however. Chris Allen was amazing and the dualing pianos- their talent- WOW'ed me. The biggest problem I saw was that there was no preparation for entertainment for bad weather. While we went to the private island and the day was not sunny- it also did not rain and everyone was on the beach- there was NO music, no lifegurads, all crew stayed pretty hidden. I realize they didnt want to risk their instruments and speakers getting wet in case of rain- but on other cruises they have always had some recorded music playing so it feels festive and you feel like you are at a beach party. It was dead silent and it made you wonder- will they have lunch, is there any activities goin on? Seriously, no rain and finally people got into the water and waves and lunch did happen. The ship -same thing- they covered up the big pool to be able to have a concert there and most of the time there was nothing happening for fear of rain. I would have loved to have had the pool with recorded music and the two extra jacuzzis they also covered.

  The food was wonderful and the rooms were great. Nicest ship yet out of the four major cruiselines we have been on. Def. a step up in finish out of the ship without the vegas fake bling feel. Loved the bowling alley. Loved having crepes prepared in front of you to order each evening, too. Also three omelet stations meant you didnt have to wait really too much for a made to order omelet. Dining rooms took a bit long to get your food out- it was two hours for dinner the two times we went- but the food was good.

  The rooms were great. There were two desk areas- one with a mirror in front of it and a plug so that one can be getting ready there while the other is in the shower- also the real tile in the bathroom and glass shower doors were so nice. We were in a middle cabin- cheapest. 

  Freeport was just ok and the market there was old and run down along with the restaurants. They need a big update/overhaul. Overall, I probably wouldnt do this cruise again even though I liked the ship the best- there is not enough to do in the ports- I would probably look for the Pearl when it headed to other ports.

4 days Live loud at sea

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Feb 26, 2014


This was amazing. I'll keep it short.

The ship was superior on cleanliness and the staff were most hospitable. The Food was amazing I couldn't keep myself out of all the restaurants, especially the buffets. Room service rocked and the room attendant was the most friendly and professional guy I've met in a long time.

The ships activities were routine I expect but the energy amongst the crowd was great and the music groups were amongst the best I've seen in a long time.

Best vacation I've had by far. The staff on this cruise line is what sets the company apart from the rest.

Great Cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Feb 26, 2014


My cruise was great!  The ship is beautiful and the entertainment for the Live Loud Festival was top notch, espescially Kris Allen!  I would highly recommend this ship to all, very clean, very accomadating!  Food was excellent!  My daughter also loved the kids club. The worst part of the cruise was when we had to leave!!  Keep it up NCL.  This was our first time cruising with you and we will cruise again.  Only recommendation for Live Loud is not to close the main pool.  Maybe locate the stage somewhere else.

Worst Norwegian Cruise Yet but Still OK

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2014


The Norwegian Star was incredible, the Norwegian Epic was wonderful, the Norwegian Pearl was, ah, OK.  It started off bad but got better.  The first night we went to dinner in the Indigo Lounge.  My brother-in-law asked the waiter to bring:

1.  a cup of coffee for his wife (my sister) and

2.  a wine list for himself.

It may seem basic but he only got the wine list.  The coffee didn't come.  He again asked for the coffee and was told it was coming and that was correct.  It came 40 MINUTES after the first request. (The time is approximate.  I didn't think I needed to time it until after about 10 minutes).  We also received the entree before an appetizer but we were numb by that time so it didn't matter.

 

The next day we switched to the Summer Palace and never had a problem again.  By the way, if you don't get good service, complain (I recommend nicely) and give them your room number.  They somehow record it so you are definately treated better.

 

Everything else was normal cruse level.  We were treated fine.  They didn't make you feel special like some cruises did but they also didn't make you feel like you were in the way.

What a wonderful experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Pearl | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2014


We have sailed NCL in the past but our experience on the Pearl was exceptional.  The staff were very accommodating, and the ship was luxurious.  The food was more than we expected.  It was five star!  Others in our p[arty sailed on the Epic in November and had an awful experience so we weren't sure what to expect but we were extremely happy with our voyage on the Pearl.  The next time we cruise, it will be on the Noregian Pearl.

Tips for Norwegian Pearl

Eat breakfast in the Great Outdoors cafe at the very back of Deck 12. It has a lot of the same food as the buffet, the lines are shorter, and it is usually beautiful outside!

Take a little time to enjoy the various pieces of artwork in the three stairwells

WISH THEY SERVE MORE FOOD AFTER 12 AM

Reserve in advance for restaurants to save on time spent in lines.

The buffet was always VERY crowded, and both complimentary restaurants were VERY full at normal eating hours. Specialty restaurants were never crowded...but didn't seem very appealing. The German Bierfest on the deck was delicious, but it was too cold to eat outside!

Expect a bit of a long wait for elevators. Stairs are often a faster choice.

The food was always top notch! I did ok on my weight but the spouse gained 7 pounds. I think that was due to the fact everything was sooo good.

Our favorite restaurant turned out to be "Indigo" and we dined there for dinner 5 nights in a row!

Get up early the day of Glacier Bay so you can watch the park rangers board the ship on a rope ladder and be ready to hear their naturalist presentation at 7:30 am.

Book early, get midship, the elevators and stairs put you in the middle of everything.

Chocolate buffet is really fun.... have someone in your party find a seat so you have somewhere to sit when you finally get your food.

Check out the updated area of the Blue Lagoon. it is open 24hrs with great food and snacks.

Deck 7 - great for walking a mile in the morning as you circumvent the whole ship with no interruption without dealing with too much wind resistence. Indigo restaurant, as they all are, is superb.

All the 2 bedroom suites are under the gym...Never, never stay in the 2 bedroom suits on the Norwegian Pearl !!!!

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Andy, cruise director was fantastic!! I believe he is now on Epic

It is a beautiful ship...entertainment is so wonderful. Room is cleaned twice a day. We have not experienced a waiting line for meals. Best for all, the crew is very friendly including the Captain of the ship. The only thing, that I was not happy was the Casino whose crew were not that very accomodating.

They charge a corkage fee for your wine.

For a more relaxing experience we went to the buffet for breakfast and lunch and to Indigo for dinner (same food as in the more formal dining room except you don't need to be dressed up that much). The 24 hr. place in the 8th floor looks very good for lunch although we never went.

Don't book excursions through the cruiseline

stay off
