7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 03, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The crew were the nicest people I had ever had to deal with. The ship is really concerned about cleanliness. They spray your hands with some sort of antibacterial spray before you enter each restaurant. All garbage is recycled! This is not an easy task but they recycle everything.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was very good, with many choices. Many different restaurants, a couple open all day and night. Others open almost all of the time.


5 out of 5
The entertainment was top notch. From comedian jugglers, and Broadway style musicals to audience participation games such as " Friendly feud", " Dancing with the Stars", and " The Dating Game", there was always something fun to do . There is also a gambling casino.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Plenty of entertainment for our teenage girls. They had a fun time meeting other teens.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Who ever is in charge of finding the staff, is doing a perfect job. They were so nice and friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was EXTREMELY CLEAN. Very nicely decorated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our stateroom was small, but we got the last room left on the ship as we booked very last minute. However small, it had everything we needed. My wife and I spoke about it afterward and we both thought it was perfect. Plenty of storage.

A very nice island, we didn't book an excursion. We just got off the ship and hopped on an island tour bus for $20. My daughters took a taxi bus to a beach and just stayed there. They said they got a nice tour along the way and their taxi was only $8 each way.
Don't Miss: There are many spots on the island that are up so high that you can see every surrounding island! Beautiful.

It is a nice little island, a work in progress. They have already done a lot including a bandstand for live music, a pavillion with 4 buffet lines for the food they haul ashore to feed everyone, which is quite a feat. Hundreds of large lawn chairs, toys for the beach and water. A huge inflateable water slide, parasailing,and more. The only thing we found that was lacking was shade as it is the last island on the itenerary and most people have had a lot of sun by then. There is a bar for drinks but they have servers on the beach so you don't have to get out of your chair if you don't want to.
Don't Miss: The water and beach is the best part.

Coki beach is fun with great snorkeling, crystal clear water, lots of locals taking care of you. Saphire Beach also has great snorkeling, with a dive shop to rent whatever you need, it is a nice place to lay back and relax or do any sport you want to do.
Don't Miss: The downtown area has alley after alley of shops. It is old and historic and very beautiful!

Pros: The shows!

Cons: Not at the ports long enough.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
