Great weather and smooth sailing

Sail Date: April 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Just returned from 9 day sail on the Pearl. They say you can eat anytime you want. They do not tell you there may not be seat for you. If you wish to eat between 6 and 7:30 you must make reservations. If we wished to eat and get to the show you MUST make reservations.There is nothing like having the same staff take care of you everynight, not so on Pearl.Too many special restaurants taking more of your money.Long waits there also.
Adult pool right on top of childrens pool. Other ships it has always been seperate.There is no comparison to Royal Carib. or Princess

Pros: Ports of call

Cons: Free style dining

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
Very choppy layout.No main promanade to stroll.
Food and Dining
The food was very good. Freestyle was not our cup of tea.
Service and Staff
We found the staff very good.
Not the same quality as other cruises
Cabin / Stateroom
Needed to call several times to get stateroom cleaned. Balcony was never cleaned until I called. On other cruises that was done daily and sliding doors were cleaned everyday. Heavy blankets on bed(good for Alaska not caribbean)Needed to put a/c on low in order to sleep with any cover at all.It looked like they never vacuumed properly.
