"Very disapointing"

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Not impressed. I have cruised Royal Caribbean and Celebrity in the past and NCL and the Pearl doesn't compare. You are nickle and dimed for everything on the ship. Dining rooms too small, they force you to pay for surcharge resturaunts. Service very slow. I will probably never book with NCL again.

Pros: The Sharkbait Show

Cons: Everything else

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Food and Dining
Food very bad for a cruise, even in specialty rest.
Service and Staff
Bar waiters very pushy for buckets of beer. resturant staff very slow and not too friendly.
Children's Programs
The girls were very nice. thought the child activities program was included but ended up paying 6 dollars a day for that also.
Ship Quality
Ship was clean
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony room small but clean.
Thank god for Sharkbait.
