Alaska cruise.

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

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.
