Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple

It was brand new and already decorated for the holidays. It was by far the best cruise we've been on, even with the bad weather (hurricane force winds and 40 ft waves). Even that was fun once you got used to the rocking & rolling. We thought it would cold once we were able to go outside but it wasn't.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was great, including the buffet. We really enjoyed eating any time we wanted but found other travelers were rude considering the number of diners trying to breakfast at the buffet around the same time.


5 out of 5
Very enjoyable and did pretty good considering the weather we encountered crossing the Atlantic.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room stewarts and wait staff exceptionally nice and helpful. They helped make our cruise even better.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was clean & easy to find. We found everything to be very accessible.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Brand new and very, very roomy so there wasn't anything not to like. Never heard anyone in the suite next to ours. The DVD in our suite didn't work (still working out the kinks) so ship showed new DVDs we brought with us. Loved all of towel animals.

Pros: Everything plus not having to worry about excursions

Cons: Fee for bowling

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
