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.
