Not what we expected!
Norwegian Pearl Cruise Review to Caribbean
Sail Date: December 11, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryWe recently returned from sailing on the Pearl to the Caribbean and I was disappointed. I specifically booked with NCL after reading reviews and speaking with other cruisers who were pleased with their cruising experience. Upon arrival, my parents stateroom bathroom was dirty and the staff were rude as a whole. The appearance of the buffet did not have ice sculptures or was not decorated as nicely as other prior ships we have been on, nor was the food of the same quality. Unfortunately, we did not try Cagney's Steakhouse until the last night of the cruise because they had phenomenal food and I would have paid to eat there every night to avoid the general dinner area. The shows on the ship were comparable and the activities. It helped that I won 2000.00 on a pull tab ticket that they gave away at bingo though.

Our staff did decorate our room wonderfully for our anniversary though. I also was always pleased to see the towel animals he left us.
Pros: Cagney's Steakhouse, anniversary decorations
Cons: buffet food, rude staff, staterooms
