June 2015 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage
Alaska is incredible and we very much enjoyed our cruise as the way to experience it!! The cruise ship was very clean and in great shape. We had a balcony stateroom that I would highly recommend as you will see so much from just sitting outside your room and it helps as rooms of the cruise ships aren't very big. The room was just right for the two of us! Food on the cruise was okay, but not great. We did not eat at the specialty restaurants, so we can't comment on those. We had the unlimited beverage package which was nice, but it was still a pain having to sign the receipts anyway. We did not have any surprise bills at the end, so we were happy about that as many people complain of that on other cruise ships. Entertainment was okay, comedian was really good!!! Our cabin steward did a great job with our room and very friendly!! Service at the bars in most areas was really slow and staff not always the most friendly. The service at the Martini bar area was really good and the staff was better than most areas! Getting on and off the boat was very organized and easy. We opted to take our own luggage when getting off and we were off the boat in ten minutes!! We arrived at the ports on time and really had no problems at all during the cruise. I would definitely recommend this cruise!
