Food is a large part of a cruise for lots of people. You should not have to complain that the food is bad, it should be good food. I myself do not like to complain about food and have the server or chef put anything into my replacement food.
I can understand OaksJ's feelings and I would also cancel an upcoming cruise if I got that bad of of food on a cruise line. I had bad food on Princess 20 years ago. It was my first and last cruise on Princes just because of the food.
I think they did a balanced review and they gave good rating to the good parts and bad ratings to the bad parts of the cruise.
Like all Cruises food is subjective and everybody has an opinion and has the right to post their opinion with out being called names. This review did do service for people thinking of this ship. It stated the Pearl has a friendly crew, decent buffet but the MDR was bad, so bad that they lost weight and canceled an upcoming cruise with NCL.
This is a friendly cruse information site and no need to call names and insult people. There are plenty of other cruise sites that get catty and nasty. Lets keep this the fun, relaxed site that it is
