Overpriced. Stewards were the worst I have ever experienced in years of cruising. Freestyle cruising I believe refers to when, or if, the stewards decide to clean or make-up your balcony suite. St. Thomas was the best port. Samana is a third world country and not ready for prime time.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Pretty average. Sushi bar is an excellent deal at a $15 premium.

Big disappointment. Royal Caribbean was much more family friendly.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Stewards unbelievably limited. Forgot new towels after taking dirty ones...try drying off with a washcloth.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Newer ship. Small exercise area. Nickel and dime you on exercise classes and everything else. Pricey drinks.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Underwhelming for a newer ship

Pros: Met some nice people

Cons: Samana, short stop at Tortola, limited excursion options

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.
