Disapointing Cruise

Sail Date: July 15, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is beautiful. However the rooms aren't insulated and you get a lot of noise from the rooms next to you and the hallway. We were very disapointed in the quality of the food even in the specialty restaurants lacked flavor. We found the bar staff very unfriendly. The ship has a beautiful spa unfortunately the staff doesn't match the facility

Pros: New Ship

Cons: Cabins are poorly insulated, you can hear everything that is going on in the next cabin.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Food and Dining
Lacked variety and flavor.
Cabin / Stateroom
Although new, very very poorly insulated. Your hear everything going on in the staterooms next to you.

The bar staff created an unfriendly atmosphere.
Your basic cruise shows.

Wish we had more time. It would be nice to spend less time in Skagway and more time in Victoria.
Don't Miss: Downtown shopping.

The best Alaska port. Lots of options.
Don't Miss: Sport Fishing, great first time fishing adventure for the kids.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Plenty of options for excursions.
Don't Miss: Float plane, bear track.
Skagway, Alaska
Spend way too much time there. Not a lot to do.
