7 Night Alaska & Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 18, 2008
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 9 years ago
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

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
ONLY NON EXTRA CHARGE RESTAURANT WORTH EATING WAS MOMBOS THE MEXICAN RESTAURANT. ALL OTHERS WERE POOR FOOD AND POOR SERVICE.

CANOE TRIP TO GLACER WAS GREAT AS WERE THE TOUR GUIDES, ALL ENERGETIC COLLEGE STUDENTS.

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.
