Thank You for the review. We could not do the Alaska run this year, but will be on the NCL dawn next year to Bermuda. Did you try the specialty ‚ restaurants on board?

I know when I do the Alaska, a balcony will be a must... Still looking at various cruise lines. I'm typically a RCI person, but have heard mixed reviews on the cruise and ships that go there. Always appreciate good honest reviews! Maybe with the renos, who knows...

Since I made the mistake of getting a balcony once, I am forever stuck with them (definitely a first-world problem :) ) Also, from what I have heard, Alaska will make any cruise enjoyable regardless of the ship or line.

Sorry that you did not fully enjoy the Pearl, but glad to see you did enjoy your cruise.

This is what I fear in September... I had the past 2 cruises balcony, and now booked an interior... I've been contemplating seeing If I can upgrade or not....

Everything about entertainment was 3rd rate? Did you go to all of clubs, shows and comedy sets? Just curious if it all 'stunk' or parts of it.‚ 


Alaska next year...excited!

I agree with the OP.  to get descent food on NCL you have to go the the specialty dining.  I did like the Steak house and the french on NCL but the MDR left a lot to be desired.


The sea day Indian lunch for $ 10.00 was excellent.  But an extra charge.
