We Almost Made It To Rome by jay63847594

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Norwegian advertises its atmosphere as "Freestyle Cruising" and that is truly a good description. The old days of dress nights and assigned seating are long gone and with them some of what made cruising different from any other vacation place. That said, Norwegian does an excellent job of offering a wide variety of activities for all passengers and a wide range of entertainment. The food is good but it is the volume of it which is most remarkable. The crew is uniformly polite, attentive, and helpful. The Pearl is a fine ship and seemed enormous to us, although its 3,000 passengers would no longer count among the larger vessels at sea. We enjoyed wandering around to the various places on the ship for entertainment, food, and (frankly) the chance to move about. Unfortunately, our ship encountered engine trouble which forced us to miss two ports along the way and then end the cruise in Barcelona rather than continuing to Livorno and Rome. Norwegian more than made it up to us by promising to refund half the cost of the cruise and provide a 50% discount on a future journey. In contrast, a ship from another line encountering mechanical troubles in a prior port had their passengers in a smaller city for four straight days with no promise of return or any offer of relief or reimbursement. Norwegian's decision to provide information to the passengers along the way, proactively offer to compensate us for the changes, and then facilitate a fairly pleasant disembarkation is laudable, especially in comparison to peer companies. We will definitely be returning for another Norwegian cruise in the near future.

The Rivieras cruise on NCL Pearl by neliya

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Although things did not work out the way it started, overall I feel they did what was best to be safe. I do appreciate that safety was number one and I commend the staff and crew that had to deal with a lot of disappointed and not so pleasant travellers..

It was horrible. We've missed four ports and the ship stopped sailing in Barcelona, Spain due to mechanical problems. We had to book last minute flight to get to Rome, Italy where the disembarkation supposedly scheduled to arrive in Rome on Friday, 07/05 by lilyepamanian

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was a horrible cruise. We were required to find last minute flight to get to Rome, Italy since we have post cruise planned. however, due to the ship had mechanical problems, passengers were forced to find a solution to get off the ship in Barcelona, Spain instead of Rome, Italy. NCL promised to cover $300 airfare reimbursement, but each ticket cost over $400 per person. I think the airfare should have been reimbursed at 100%. In addition, we were not able to utilize the ultimate beverage package since we were stuck in Barcelona, Spain for three days, in which it should be refunded at least 30%. Passengers kept getting bad announcements daily, in which it spoiled our vacation.

FOOD TIP: Amazingly, the best food on the ship are the Indian dishes presented in the main buffet, the Garden Cafe. The curried chicken is exceptional.

The back of the ship (outside) on the 12th floor was great. Lots of sun and excellent food.
