It's ok, but I am done with NCL.......
Norwegian Pearl Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: December 26, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship itself is fine, but the food, crapy night life, the uhappy misreable crew, the embarkation and worst of all the disembarkation process, places you visit (Samana, is a dump! St. thomas is allright, tortola it's ok and the prviate island is nothing to brag about), surrounded by tons and tons of kids (Good luck trying to use any jacusi during your trip., unless you want to spend additonal $100.00 dollars for less crowded jacusi) and it's not exactly you thought it would be............... By the way I am not picky person at all and very easy going NCL pride itself as free style, all that really means is you don;t have a set time for main dining room that's all and nothing else! Comparing this with Celebrity cruises or Royal Caribean, and well you set yourself up for dissapointment.,
Food and Dining
(After you have coughed up 2500 dollars excluding air fare, you are not exactly lin a mood to pay additional money for food.......................
Main dining room is good but very limited selections, Le bistro resturant is good, but at $25.00 dollar per person, well it ain't exactly a bargain.
By the way instead of having multiple tenders ready after another to take you to an island, they will only use two, which will take you some time before you get on them, unless you want to wake up early and be first in line.
For kids this is probably good cruise but other than that for two adults there are better otions out there.
Service and Staff
Pittyfull! with an exception of some people here and there, the crew looked misreable, not exactly there to help you or even pretend. For get about any one of them going an extra mile for you. Just about the worst part is the disembarkation process! instead oif having people situated in different locations directing traffic, they had one short girl standing at the door trying to answer questions.
Hint: Check as late as possible! no point chekcing out early because it will take you some time any way.
