A clean ship in great condition, fun ports, comfortable staterooms, awesome entertainment. How can you complain really when you're on vacation? :)

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There wasn't much of a variety. Main Buffet, poolside buffet, back of the ship buffet all had same food as the formal dining room, and if there was anything left over it carried over to the lunch buffets next day. Also, the "anytime dining" is a little misleading because unless you make a reservation the wait time is usually 24-35 minutes.

Dave Naster, comedian was awesome! Sharkbait, juggling/comedy duo was awesome! Second City, a "Who's Line is it Anyway" type group was great! We also enjoyed the The Quest, Liar's Club game shows by Sharkbait and Cruise Staff.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The bar and wait staff were eager to help like always, but we didn't see much from our room seward. Sometimes I feel like you don't get the same personal treatment with anytime dining as a set one because you don't get to know the staff as well.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very clean, comfortable. Best bed and pillows I've had yet on a cruise. The only problem was with our toilet that kept making strange noises and then backing up. The plumber came and even with his efforts and continued assurance, the problem never got fixed.

Pros: Ports were fun, bed and pillows so comfortable, clean, spacious bathroom

Cons: food wasn't fabulous, just okay.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.
