Review SummaryOverall the trip was awesome. The ship was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. The freestyle dining was fantastic and the selection of foods were wonderful as well. The staff always smiling, friendly and accomodating. The staff wasn't too knowledgable about events taking place on the ship but they could tell you locations on the ship. Our 6 yr old attended the kid programs and the hours of operation worked well with the events offered for adults. The Easter egg hunt was a hit. The entertainment were professionally done and well worth seeing. The stateroom was very comfortable and our child couldn't wait to get back to the room to see what kind of towel animal the steward was going to make each night. The adult pool was nice but overtaken by teenagers. The other pool was great for kids with the slide and their own whirlpool. The rock climbing wall was a success and even fun for adults. The bowling alley was nice too but we didn't like to have to pay for each game. Gambling was fun and the free lessons 15 min prior was a nice touch. All the activities offered was exceptional. We loved the Pearl and plan to sail again.
Ports of Call
Pros: I enjoyed the free style dining and selection of food and the id card system so you don't have to carry money with you the most
Cons: Paying for sodas and not having at least one complimentary drink. Paying for bowling, teenagers in adult pool.
