Review SummaryVery well maintained ship with a very helpful crew. Loved the freestyle dining without having to dress up. Lines at the Garden Cafe buffet were a bit overwhelming the first day and breakfast buffet seating at peak times was almost impossible without a scout to find a table and hold it while the others in our party foraged.
Our cabin steward, Ricardo, was always attentive and helpful, as was everyone on the Pearl.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Getting off at port upon docking was about the only downside. If your shore excursion was any time close to the docking time, you had lots of company for the cattle crowded lines to disembark.
