Food and Dining

Cagney's Steak House is well worth the surcharge. The steaks are fantastic! The 'freestyle' dining was one of the reasons we chose this line and it was exactly as advertised.

Did the Tulum shore excursion. The site & guide were interesting. The people of Mexico were constantly pushy. Relentlesly begging us to buy junk.

Belize City, Belize

Actually feared for my life on the 'Cruise Solutions' tour to Altun Ha. Reported tour operator to NCL so hopefully this won't be an option for next cruisers. The country is third world. Even without the terrible tour, be careful. Makes one have an appreciation of their own blessings.

Pros: The best thing about the cruise was the staff on the Pearl. They were so nice & helpful.

Cons: The selection in the shops. I'm not a perfume, souvenir, or expensive jewelry buyer.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
