Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 30, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The food was all very salty. The embarking and disembarking was poorly planned and took wayyyy too long. Some people missed their flights coming back. The smoking section was on Deck 7, the same as the exercise lap walk. Yuck.
However, the crew was friendly, accomodating and cheerful. The ship was very clean.

Ambience was ok, but all the food was too salty. My eyes were swollen the entire time.

They make the most of the small space. It was clean, the linens were good, but the bed made my back hurt.

We loved the seven mile beach. No need for an excursion. Also, Margaritaville was lots of fun, albient very alcoholic and pricey.

It has lost its charm since the cruise ships took over. But, if you walk in a block or two it is old time Mexico.

The locals are all over you and very uncomfortable to be around. They glom onto you and don't let go. The beaches cost to go on and they are unremarkable. I will not go back.

Pros: Fitness room

Cons: lumpy bed, smoking on the walking/exercise deck

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.
