June 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage
Our steward was GREAT. The rest of the cruise was a mistake. From the dirty handrails to the 'all about money' attitude that the officers and the 'powers that be' had...it was our last NCL. The price dropped significantly before our cruise and I tried repeatedly to get a reduction in price for the overall cruise, OR a drink package, OR a meal package, OR excursion money....NONE of which was offered or available. EVERYthing cost too much...from laundry service to a glass of wine. Really rediculous. PLUS, I caught the maitre D' giving a 'suite' passenger special priviledges (opening a bar for a couple), AFTER another couple had noticed that the bar was closed and should've already been opened. Didn't matter because the bar tender wasn't opening the bar UNTIL the money folks showed up. PLUS, my relative on the Pearl at the very same time was upgraded from a suite to a better suite for unknown reasons??? Really, now.....that's over the top! PLUS, the spa treatments were much higher than other cruiseships!
