Overall nice ship

Sail Date: October 01, 2009

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was very nice and the staff very friendaly. The food was great as always on NCL. The ports of call not great. NCL rarely goes to their private island because they tender and the waves in that area of the Bahamas always has waves too high to make it. The port of Samana do not get off the ship. This is a third world country that is extremley dangerous. We were on a shore excursion through NCL and were attacked on the tour by two men with machetes and robbed and beaten. Do not get off the ship! Very dangerous and someone is going to get killed in that port. NCL did not warn anyone on how dangerous the port was and really should have.

Pros: Food Choices were great

Cons: Never making it to stirrup cay due to waves, Ports of call

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
