Totally disappointed

Sail Date: November 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Small for the amount of passengers. Hard to navigate.

Pros: Gym was nice

Cons: Denny's quality food and service

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
The ship was clean, small, and hard to navigate.
If you like to partake in Casino entertainment, do it before leaving on the cruise, slot were tight and the odds on the tables were highly bias to the house. Played 2 evenings and stopped for the rest of the cruise. Shows were short and sub-par. The Pool area (only one) was so crowed, spent all our time in the gym, which was a good thing. We have been on many other Cruise lines and NCL is off our list.
Food and Dining
It didn't take us long to determine that the objective of the non-surcharge dining areas, was to influence you to go to the surcharge dining areas for true Cruise quality food and service.
Cabin / Stateroom
We found the state rooms to be nice.
Service and Staff
Since the majority of the staff knew they were probably not going to serve you again during the cruise and tip was already built into the daily charge, the staff did not go over board, no pun intended!!
