December 2015 - 11 Night Panama Canal & Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Pearl
Compare on a lower end
We just returned from a cruise on the Pearl. This is our forth cruise, the first with NCL.
On our previous cruises with Other lines, we were impressed with the quality of service and food provided, but the Pearl failed us this time. From a very slow and long time wait check-in, to poor food in the dining rooms, to a so so entertaining program, we were not impressed by NCL. Servants were friendly in the dinning rooms, but it was poor menu an issue, soup always very salty, a big main course with only veggies and two pieces of potato cuts, fewer sea food selections, sometime waiting so long for orders, we had to go to the buffet a few times after!
The ship was beautiful, and the excursions were awesome. We just did not feel it worth the money we paid comparing to other cruise lines. We will book with other lines but not NCL.
