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.'

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Quality of food was very good but the 'free style' dining at Summer Palace was disappointing. Food was barely warm\, servers were very disorganized.


3 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Furniture has seen it's days\, tables in lounge areas were not cleaned properly.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We stayed mid-ship which was very convenient. Our bathroom floor needed attention and found glasses were not replaced daily.

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.
