10 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Sail Date: December 01, 2014 Ship: Norwegian Pearl Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Family (young children) Reviewed: 3 years ago
LOVED NORWEGIAN PEARL From the moment we stepped onto the ship. The welcoming aboard was so genuine by all the crew and officers. We truly felt like we were one happy family. I have travelled on so many ships since I was a little girl and can honestly say this has to be my favorite along with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, However, Royal Caribbean cannot be compared to the welcome we recieved on Norwegian Cruise Lines. It was by far the best part of the whole cruise. Every crew member and officer was truly helpful and always with a smile on their face. Some people don't realize the long grueling hours they work per day and to still be pleasant to the travellers aboard ship is really important to mention. Besides these two cruise lines i've travelled on Holland America, Cunard, and others and I've got to say the food, shows, service was excellent aboard Norwegian Pearl. I will definitely be taking this cruise line before as I have in the past. The fine service remained the same as in the past. Thank you Norwegian Cruise Lines for a fabulous vacation. Ann and Morty

we enjoyed the music, comedians, acrobats and we especially enjoyed the three divas from Las Vegas and Shane Tapper that brought us back to the sixties and seventies with his songs.

The whole ship felt so much like home without the stress. Being that the Pearl was an older ship it was so well maintained you would never know it was one of the older ones. They keep it looking like new and always fixing this or that.
Cabin / Stateroom

We unfortunately had a cabin with an obstructed view which was definitely not NCL's fault but my own as I had a wedding to plan for and couldn't afford to spend more at the time.
We wanted to try everything that came with the cruise fare. We ate at Indigo and the food was delicous as was the Summer Palace and the buffet at The Garden Cafe.
We were here last year as well and made several purchases. Jewelry tends to be very reasonable on the islands so of course took advantage of that. I purchased another beautiful woman's evening jacket. I bought one last year and had to get another one. I recieved so many complements on the one I purchased last year. My husband bought one of those Caraloha shirts made of bamboo that is so soft to the touch and cool for summer and off course I had to get my souvenir collectibles
