Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

When the family decided to cruise, I researched many lines that traveled to Alaska. Due to the "Freestyle Cruising" theme we chose Norwegian; an excellent choice. The ports were well thought out, the activities, especially for kids, were fun, and the entire staff was friendly and helpful.

We liked the stateroom. We liked the food, particularly the availability to eat "whenever", and we had more enjoyment that we ever had before. NCL has its act togeather on the beautiful Pearl. A new ship that is comfortable and relaxing. Not having to dress up at all was a bonus.

I highly recommend this cruise for any individual or family that wants to cruise the inside passage.

Pros: Ship's activities, comfort, and staff

Cons: Time at port could be longer

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!

Service and Staff
Staff from around the world. Friemdly, helpful, and eager to assist.
Second City troupe was very entertaining. Shows were of high quality

New ship with all the amenities
Food and Dining
Being able to come and go to the buffet at any time allowed us to schedule events and excursions that we would not have been able to otherwise.

Small, but very comfortable. I highly recommend tha balcony for scenic viewing.

Our 12 year old had the best time of all of us.
