A REAL DISAPOINTMENT

Sail Date: May 18, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

PHYSICALLY THE NCL PEARL IS IMPRESSIVE. FOUR BOWLING LANES, ROCK CLIMBING BEAUTIFUL SPA. WHAT DISAPPOINTS IS THAT THE CREW CAN'T HANDLE IT. THE FOOD WAS A DISASTER. DUE TO CONCERN ABOUT VIRUS OUTBREAK THE CREW WAS ORDERED TO PERSONALLY SERVE EVERYTHING. THIS RESULTED IN LONG LINES FOR EVERYTHING FROM WATER TO CONDIMENTS. I'VE BEEN ON OTHER SHIPS WHERE CONCERN FOR HEALTH DID NOT DETRACT FROM THE CRUISE EXPERIENCE. NOT HERE. NOT NEARLY ENOUGH SEATS FOR BUFETT MEALS

Pros: NCL PEARL IS A BEAUTIFUL SHIP WITH LOTS OF POTENTIAL

Cons: THE MANAGEMENT OF THE LINE DID A POOR JOB HANDLING THE CAPACITY SAILING. NOT ENOUGH SEATS AT BUFETT. POOR SERVICE IN RESTAURANTS(EXCEPT FOR PREMIUM CHARGE DINING.)

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
ONLY NON EXTRA CHARGE RESTAURANT WORTH EATING WAS MOMBOS THE MEXICAN RESTAURANT. ALL OTHERS WERE POOR FOOD AND POOR SERVICE.
Entertainment
OTHER THAN A GOOD JOHNNY CASH SHOW THE REST OF THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS AVERAGE AT BEST.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Ketchikan, Alaska

Don't Miss: TOOK THE MYSTIC FJORDS TOUR WAS GREAT.
Victoria, British Columbia

Don't Miss: BUTCHARD GARDENS A MUST
