Freestyle Cruising at its best!

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The Norwegian Pearl was the perfect size ship for me - not too many people or a ship so large it would be difficult to get around or find a place to just sit and relax. As you walked through the open ship areas, there were different kinds of bars with a diverse group of music provided. We met some very nice people who were also very happy with the cruise. There was never over-crowding or long waits in dining areas as long as you made reservations in advance. The service personnel were just wonderful - attentive and engaging. I have a nut allergy and they were very accommodating to the situation. 

The room was good size for 2 of us and kept very clean each day. Clean towels were always provided.

There could be some improvement in the boarding process. It was a very long line and wait to board. If the weather were hotter or even rainy, some people could be in trouble, especially seniors. They did have personnel serving water while we were in line.

Overall, a good experience; a relaxing and fun time!
