A very good cruise

Room Type: Balcony

The Norwegian Pearl is a beautiful ship. There were a variety of activities for all on the ship. The staff were very helpful and responsive. The food was excellent in the main dining areas. Do not go to the cover charge restaurants. They are no better. The beds were very comfortable as they had real mattresses instead of the styrofoam. The excursions were great. The big, big concern had to do with freestyle dining. This is the first time we were not able to just walk into a restaurant. There were more cover charge restaurants than regular restaurants. It created waiting lines. Norwegian should fix this problem as soon as possible.

Pros: the variety of activities and the professionalism of the staff

Cons: problems with freestyle dining. Had to make reservations for the main dining areas.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
