The ship was clean\, very clean. People are always cleaning. Our room was VERY CLEAN and the guy cleaning our room was super nice and friendly.
The comedy show was really good.
The girl dancers were pretty and fun to watch.
The waiters in the dining rooms were ok\, some were friendly and the others were more friendly.
The jaquizzi was NEVER hot but\, if you want the HOT jaquizzi\, you must PAY for that.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The formal dining rooms were pretty good. The buffet areas were like Hometown Buffet\, just a bunch of mass produced food to fill your belly.


3 out of 5
There were things to do but\, noone seemed to know about those things until after they occured.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff was very friendly but\, at no point did anyone offer to help in anyway unless there was money involved.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was well maintained and always clean. There were NOT ENOUGH activities for the adults or the kids to do outside. There were only 3 ping pong tables on a ship that departed from Seattle (someone did NOT think that one through)!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our room was big enough for 4 of us. There were no problems with anything related to our room.

Pros: Washy Washy Happy Happy...very funny

Cons: It was clear from the onset that EVERYTHING was about PAYING for MORE...

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.
