Nice Itinerary

Sail Date: March 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is clean and the workers are attentive. We are not big fans of NCL primarily due to the food\, but the itinerary cannot be beat. Also\, it is truly a fun ship. There is always something to do and the ambiance is set for fun and to \"get away\" from life for awhile. The freestyle dining is also very nice!!

Pros: The Ports of Call

Cons: The food

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food on NCL has improved greatly over the past 2 years. The food is very forgettable\, but having NCL employees at the entrance of high traffic areas to spray your hands with anti-bacterial gel is a MAJOR plus. Some people are just dirty and this will help reduce the chance of an outbreak.
Cabin / Stateroom
Well stocked and clean.
Service and Staff
Excellent service and many went out of their way to make our vacation wonderful.
Plenty of options for the young and old.
Children's Programs
Smoking section is directly next to the children's area\, so smoke would constantly enter. Very poor design. Who is their right mind would place the smoking section right next to where the kids play. Also\, don't solely go by the ship's daily itinerary schedule. Check directly with the children's desk. We missed some programs because the times at the desk were different that the times on the daily itinerary.
