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.

Ship Quality
The ship was showing it's age in some locations, but very well kept.
Food and Dining
Check out the specialty restaurants
Cabin / Stateroom
Should have gone for a balcony room
Service and Staff
Checked out a couple of shows and the family enjoyed them.
Children's Programs
Didn't really take advantage of all that the ship had to offer
Onboard Activities
Lots of activities, but some you need to pay for (like bowling).
Destinations and Excursions
Great city tours, defnitely worth checking out.


Blue Moon Café is the place to go for midnight snacks and late night cravings.
