Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Although it was the Norwegian Pearl's last fall cruise it was in dire need of cleaning. Public restrooms needed attention\, our cabin did not meet our expectations of 'clean.'

Pros: Traveling thru Glacier Bay and experiencing the wilderness with the majestic mountains in the background.

Cons: Hussle and bussle of all the people crowding into the ports from the various cruise ships also docked at the same time we were.

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? No.

Ship Quality
Furniture has seen it's days\, tables in lounge areas were not cleaned properly.
Food and Dining
Quality of food was very good but the 'free style' dining at Summer Palace was disappointing. Food was barely warm\, servers were very disorganized.
Cabin / Stateroom
We stayed mid-ship which was very convenient. Our bathroom floor needed attention and found glasses were not replaced daily.
Service and Staff
Staff appeared to us 'pooped out'...we encountered very few smiles from bartenders or drink servers. Only obvious smiling staff were the entertainers and activity employees.
Activities kept us busy throughout the days at sea. Great chance to meet people from other parts of the world. However\, when playing trivia the 'seasoned' cruisers always knew all the answers.
