This was a great cruise. The staff onboard were all professional and extremely friendly. There were a huge selection of dining options and, best of all, you can eat at just about any time you desire. There is no specific seating time for meals and no assigned tables. This is so much better!

Pros: Food choices, entertainment, variety of land excursions offered

Cons: Some of the land tours included extremely packed vehicles

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!

For the most part, the entertainment was as good or better than what can be found in Las Vegas or a similar venue
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
I selected a tour of the countryside surrounding Ocho Rios and it was a very enjoyable and worthwhile excursion offering a great "feel" for Jamaica
Cozumel, Mexico
A good trip to Tulum, but a huge number of people going on four large buses. Our guide was great, but some very bold pressure for tips throughout the one hour journey back to the ship.
Don't Miss: Be sure to see Tulum if you have not yet seen it
George Town, Grand Cayman
I selected a general island overview sightseeing trip but the original company selected to conduct that tour was a disaster! Finally a NCL rep switched companies and, after a 1 1/2 hour delay, the new company did a great job and did not shorten the trip. All participants were also given a 50% rebate on the fee we paid - which I feel was very honest.
