The Pearl Destination

Sail Date: March 22, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The bowling alley.

Pros: The Atrium Room

Cons: No shorts in dining rooms after 5pm, the price of the photos, the food was just ok unless you paid a cover charge to eat at a restaurant.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The quality of food was just ok. It was a little better in the cover charge restaurants, but it felt like you were always paying for dinner! There should be more restaurants included w/o a cover charge. I've never been on a cruise where you still have to pay for most of the restaurants you go to. That's a little ridiculous.
Cabin / Stateroom
The beds are comfortable, or at least it was in the room we were in.
Service and Staff
There were very few examples of the crew that were willing to "go above & beyond" and the overall customer service was just average. People were not working for personal tips.
I thought the shows would be better and there wouldn't be so many comedy shows. There should be more options in the schedule instead of seminars, jewelry lectures, etc.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
The island walking path was really nice & easy to explore. There were many activities to be involved in. The food could have been a lot better!
Don't Miss: Take the walking path to the other side of the island.
Belize City, Belize
Didn't really see much of Belize at all, but went to Old Belize for a wedding.
Cozumel, Mexico

Don't Miss: Playa Mia shore excursion
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
