Terrific Value on Overnight Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Overnight cruise from Seattle to Vancouver, B.C. on the beautiful Norwegian Pearl. We weren't sure if all the restaurants would be available for such a short cruise, but we had all the amenities - including a wonderful musical and some casino play after midnight. The ship is gorgeous, staff was courteous, food was plentiful and good quality. Unfortunately the disembarkation process was horrible - passengers were required to carry all their belongings through the steep stairs of the theater while ONE overworked employee handed out transfer tickets for the bus ride back to Seattle. It was unbelievably disorganized, and difficult for the older passengers to haul suitcases. Another long line and wait to board the bus and a 3.5 hour wait at the border crossing. That aside it was a great value and we had a memorable cruise.

Pros: Beautiful Ship!

Cons: Disembarkation was total chaos.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
