An amazing first cruise!

Sail Date: September 02, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

My first real cruise, so I don't have much of a basis for comparison, but I liked the overall experience. Most of the staff was attentive, the ship common areas were clean, and embarkation and disembarkation were very organized.

Pros: Excursions\, Service\, Food

Cons: size of bathroom

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was terrific! There was a wide variety of choices\, including healthy items\, at every meal. Plenty of fresh veggies and fruits were available.
Cabin / Stateroom
The decor was nice\, and the size of the stateroom was fine. My only issue was the bathroom. I would have given up a couple of inches of unusable vanity space to have a couple more inches in the toilet area.
Service and Staff
At the main entrance to the buffet\, there was always someone on duty with a spray bottle of hand sanitizer. They insisted that everyone coming into the dining area had to get a spray -- even the children. They made it easy to comply by chanting \"washy washy happy happy\". One crew member was often at the door with his guitar and made a song out of it.
