Norwegian Pearl

December 2015 - Norwegian Pearl to Panama Canal, Central America

Nowegian is our Favoride but this one was a little dissapointing

We love Norwegian but this cruise had a few issues. First the boarding process was ridiculously slow the lines were out the door, I have never experienced this on any other cruise. I think maybe because they launch two boats on the same day and place?

The ship seemed to get to every port late except for the last day.

The excursion in Columbia was horrible. It was the city walking tour, All they did was take us from one crappy store to another we hardly saw any of the city and when we finally found what looked like a good place to shop at the end they would not let us, they rushed everyone on the bus.

The staff on this ship did not seem very happy, there were some that stood out that were very nice but the majority of the crew seemed pretty grumpy.

Our balcony stateroom had plumbing issues. The toilet stopped working two times, We called and the front desk said they would send someone but no one came then called again and they said they always have problems in that area of the ship. So we had to get up get dressed and go use one of the public bathrooms. needless to say it always smelled in that area deck 8

We did have a great dining experience in the Indigo restaurant section 4 cant remember the names but the waitress her helper and the bar woman were great.

dtacey's Tips

Tallinn, Estonia - great old city just fabulously preserved easy walk just wander on your own, go in a few churches have coffee
Copenhagen, Denmark - Bicycle yes rent a bike and definitely go across the river to the military base where you can see the submarine it is beautiful there, then ride through free-mans land Christiana interesting not like it use to be more of a town now
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - nice excursion to fairytale castle nice countryside and the little town right near the port was awesome too
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation - Catherine's palace was beautiful and it makes you appreciate the divide between the rich and poor which i think is still going on. everything we past on the way was utilitarian run down nothing quaint
Helsinki, Finland - great city to wonder, we went to churches and other historical sites but ended up in the mall which we promptly got lost and came one in a whole different area so getting back took a little bit longer
Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden - we did not go into Stockholm we stayed in the town close to the ship, i see you could get on the train right there and there were lots of them We ate at the Kroken by the boats it was awesome all local workers were there having lunch too that was a good sign
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - NCL is a great cruise line i am sure they will get things in order Be careful in the spa they will try to high pressure sales at end of treatment and be aware there is gratuity added already my wife made the mistake of not knowing that and way over tipped
