7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 02, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
This was our second cruise, on NCL, the first was on the Dawn. This trip was not nearly as enjoyable, as cruising on the Dawn. Staff was not nearly as nice/friendly, nor did they seem trained, as well. The service was not as good. The bad outweighed the good. We were not able to enjoy the restaurants, due to the frustration with the service. We stayed with the buffet, which was good. The Pearl is a beautiful ship, but is in need of some upgrades. Carpets need cleaned, etc. It seems like everything has a charge. We did enjoy the entertainment.

You will have many vendors "encourage" you to visit their store.
