A Cruise Of A Lifetime! Alaska

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

We would highly recommend this ship and NCL. Our Alaksan cruise was incredible aboard the brand new ship. The food, restaurants, staff, cabin crew, views, balconies, were wonderful! We loved FreeStyle Dining and loved the Italian and Asian restaurants the most and the buffets.

Loved waking up each morning to a new port. We docked very close if not directly in each port and it was a joy to see each day. We especially fell in love with Ketchikan and Victoria and will go back soon to spend more time there.

Wish we had more time in Ketchikan and Victoria and less in Juneau and Skagway. Make sure to take the train in Skagway, the views are incredible!

Pros: Everthing! Sparkling Ship, Crew, Cabin Staff, FreeStyle Dining, Food, Balcony Cabin

Cons: The coffee needed improvement, a larger cabin bathroom would be nice and better embarkation/disembarkation procedures

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!

Ship Quality
Great new ship, layout was easy to find everything, great decks to view Alaska scenery from. Very clean, we never washed our hands so much, great decor. Our cabin's bathroom could have been a little larger.
Food and Dining
Fantastic food, great variety, international cuisine. Loved the desserts, Italian, Asian restaurants and huge buffets. Coffee could use improvement.
Cabin / Stateroom
Awesome cabin, clean, organized, great view from the balcony. Loved the beds, and the toiletries and thanks for the hairdryer, it came in handy. Bathroom could be a little larger.
Service and Staff
Great staff, crew, captain, cruise director. Cabin crew was wonderful, loved talking to all the international crew!
