Beautiful ship! The staff was very attentive and always looking to help. The food was great, but gratuity added to EVERYTHING. $30.00 for a six pack of beer. Service charges added per person, per day. The sip gets smaller as time goes on. Not many places to go and be alone and have a private conversation. Loved the entertainment!! The staterooms are beautifully done!! OUr balcony was a must. It's exciting to wake up in a new port and pull the blinds to see the beauty of a new country!

No activities for teens at all. "Teen room" was very small and not interesting to my teen.

Shopping is excellent!! We didn't get to dive due to very windy, rough seas. Island is very plane on the dock side.

River rafting and Mayan ruins were great!! River ride a bit too long at 25 miles!!

Pros: The entertainment, beauty of the ship, fabulous ports!

Cons: Crowds , lines, trying to get food from the buffet along with dozens of other cruisers.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
