Whoa, if you think the Pearl is looking beaten up, try the Sky. I was aboard the Pearl almost two years for a rock and roll charter and I can TELL you one of those stains was caused by my spilled drink in the lobby near the stage. Like about 10,000 others. Sky and Pearl are used for short cruises with lots of people on and off adding wear and tear. On Sky, compound the effect of FREE BARS--that's right all inclusive--on bathrooms, floors and carpets.
