Food poor At best

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ncl is my cruise Line and have always had great food  but this one the Food was poor at best.  I can't say anything else. I lost weight!!! The main dinning room food was alternated every other night. Lobster has been removed from restaurants. The service in restaurants was very poor, O'sheehans is great on the big ships but not the same on the Pearl. No ice cream and no specialty dinner nights. The other thing I  noticed was when ordering drinks with a straw the paper wrapping had been removed,it has previously had the paper wrapping on the upper portion of the straw. Even though the food was horrible we still had a good time, already planning next trip on larger ship!

As always the ncl crew was amazing, the food , and service are second to none. We have cruised royal carribean, and carnival as well. This our 4th with Norwegian and we booked our 5th onboard. Only thing I can say not really bad was we are used to the new mega ships  so the Pearl being a bit smaller although beautiful. Seemed to be a little cramped. But the whole cruise was aaaa++++++. We love Norwegian and will continue to cruise them.

The worse cruise ship ever

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The areas we cruised to was amazing but the cruise ship was the worse I have ever been on. The cabin was making so much noise when the ship was cruise and the entertainment was not good for all the sea days we had I am overall very disappointed in NCL for this.

In the locks  was just about the best. Some of the hotel front staff were far from being helpful, Far from being like others on other cruise. Not happy about paying for other charges that were added after paying in full. Will think of using other cruise lines for my next cruise and bookings.Angry

The Pearl is a clean ship, with a good crew and great service.NCL is the best at freestyle dining, not waiting for a table and great service and food.

10 Night Panama Canal Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The best part was the entertainment on board!  The food could use some improvement.  The buffet was very good, for a buffet.  Nothing special at night in the dining room.  I don't really like anytime dining.  I prefer my table, my waiter, my time, and dress up nights!

The ports And the Stardust theater  the shows were great! We cruised last on the Escape and I guess it spoiled us, lot more bars and bands, for now on we will schedule our cruises around the ship. Norwegian has always treated us great and we will always use them. over all the cruise was very good.

Nice ship

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was great!  The staff was great.  Only complaint is the excursion to the Panama Canal by Ferry should not be a "1". It should be a "2" or "3".  It is not for anyone with mobility problems.  A lot of walking up and down steep terrain and ramps on and off docks.  Very long and hot!   Not worth the money it cost!

Everything about this cruise was first class-we really enjoyed ourselves, and felt like we were away for a month!

There will be more trips in the future on Norwegian-Holy Land Cruise in 2019 is on our list-already left deposits

FOOD TIP: Amazingly, the best food on the ship are the Indian dishes presented in the main buffet, the Garden Cafe. The curried chicken is exceptional.

The back of the ship (outside) on the 12th floor was great. Lots of sun and excellent food.

O'SHEEHAN'S TIP: If you're looking for a snack at the Blue Lagoon, forget it. It's been swallowed up by O'Sheehan's. Good omelets, bad burgers. Good artichoke dip, bad chicken wings. Good beer, good beer.
