Review Summary

The Alaskan cruise as a whole is something that needs to be experienced especially by nature lovers.  The destinations have their fascinating history and the scenery is just spectacular.  Some of the excursions are pricy, but there are some that are reasonable and provide an excellent experience.  There's also a lot of jewelry shopping  at each port for those who are into bling and the deals are highlighted by the crew. As for the Norwegian Pearl, the accommodations were reasonable (we had an inside cabin) for our family of 4, the food and selections were very good and the specialty restaurants were excellent.  Definitely check out the Steakhouse, Tepanyaki, and French specialty restaurants.  The crew was very friendly and accommodating.  My family totally enjoyed it.
