Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

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

Ship Quality
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.
Food and Dining
I so looked forward to every meal. It didn't matter where you ate the food was so mouth watering delicious.
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.
Service and Staff
Our Stewardess was fabulous, loved her, The washy washy crew that always sure to keep your hands clean were so funny. The
Entertainment
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.
Children's Programs My children are all grown now however I remember taking the majesty when theyy were young and as I remember they always had a great time. At the time I was married to my first husband that past away
Onboard Activities
We took advantage of the Spa , massages and hair salon as well as the library and the different games they offered. Won a beautiful 8 x10 picture on Deal Or No Deal.
Destinations and Excursions
Took the excursion The Best of Tortolla. Had a lot of fun wanted it too keep going. Unfortunately we had to cancel our St. Kitts excursion because my husband was ill next time would love to go to that one. I appreciate how the staff took immediate attention to that cancellation. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about th
Miami, Florida
I live in Ft. Lauderdale and boarded ship in Miami. It's a great tourist area.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
We took the open vehicle tour up the mountains and around Tortola which was a level one tour which meant it was not too strenuous light walking
St. John's, Antigua We took a walk around the port to all the souvenir shops and did a little shopping.
Fort-De-France, Martinique
We took a walk into the town and enjoyed the sites there was a parade going through the main street. We stopped to get refreshments and then continued to purchase a few souvenirs.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
St. Kitts from what I could see from the port was beautiful. My husband was feeling a bit ill and had to cancel the excursion so we stayed close to the ship, however I still purchased my souvenirs
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
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

Tip

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.
