I took this cruse to give NCL a 2nd chance after a bad first cruise on the NCL Star.   What a world of difference.   The Pearl is Clean and has a good lay out.  The service on the Pearl is good in MDR and the specialty restaurants.  We had great service at the Champagne bar and cabin steward.  


This ship has events going most of the time,  you will find something to do.  The Cruise Director staff kept things lively and going on.  Such a difference from the Star.


The Re positioning Cruise stopped in San Francisco CA, Astoria Organ, Victoria B.C.,  Ninimo B.C. and ended in Vancouver B.C.  Astoria is a quaint little town on the River,  nice place to get off the ship and walk around to get lunch and coffee.  We had some frineds drive down form Seattle to visit with us in Astoria.  


The 24 hour restaurant is grate on this ship,  not the huge buffet but a small cafe with windows to see the water,   They have a good menu for Breakfast, snacks and lunch.

for better food you have to go to the pay restaurants, Steak house well worth it, French food was the best.

Ship Tip

See when they are playing the movie on the big screen in the lobby at night, you can get there early and get seats in the cafe to sit watch the movie and have snacks.
