Verified Review
7 Night Alaska Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 10, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9560
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The food on the Pearl was excellent as were the people who worked for Norwegian. But I have to say this cruise had more than 500 children on it and they ran up and down the halls day and night.  The The weather did not  cooperate.  The fog completely surrounded the ship on two of our sailing days making it impossible to see the scenery along the way. Also the television set in our cabin was a 13". Didn't matter too much though.  Reception was awful.  Until now, Norwegian was my favorite ship line. We will be more careful to choose cruises when children are in school and the weather is better.

Cabin / Stateroom

9560 was more towards front of ship rather than mid-ship and crew area door right across cabin was noisy.
