The best cruise I've had since my first!

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Ship's layout was unusual in that not both sides of the public decks were open for exit/entrance. Aft section of ship was not intuitively found due to the maze-like and odd floor plan. Life boat drill was too informal and lacked the importance of such practice events. Ship was clean and tidy. The staff was helpful, cheerful and most pleasant.

Pros: Fellow passengers and ship's staff were absolutley friendly, accepting and tolerant.

Cons: Nickel and diming for items previously offered as inclusive during a cruise.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
I din't like the layout, but all other areas were well maintained, clean and nearly timeless in design.
Food and Dining
Food quality was average in both regular dining rooms. Coffee in all areas except the Cafe was awful, but hot. Specialty restaurants were very nice, but there were too many.
Cabin / Stateroom
