Norwegian Pearl

March 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Panama Canal, Central America

NCL review

I felt that NCL were constantly wanting clients to spend, spend, spend.  Even the bowling alley had a cost.  The port shopping advice was similar to an Amway sign up.....not nearly enough daytime activities....trivia session lasted 30 minutes....line dance class, 30 minutes.  Dancing seemed on,y available late night except for two sessions.   NCL sell their cruises dirt cheap to the gamblers in the casino...those of us who choose not to gamble pay at least 3 times the price.  A bit more variety I the menus would be appreciated.  The excursions were extortionately priced....we each port on our own negotiating with the touters on the pier or near by....had excellent drivers and tour guides and saved a fortune.  We enjoyed ghe Panama Canal and ports but days at sea quite boring.  Two small wines cost us $30 Australian ...again extortionate.

brindle's Tips

Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - Do your own excursions.....research other lines well before booking...library staff unhelpful, 'this is my first day, I can't help!' Next time the gent was sitting with his lady friend on a couch not interested in the users of the library....hence best take your own reading material.
