Review summary

After 6 nights in all inclusive hotel in Ocho Rios, we joined the Pearl for a 7 day round trip. After not being sure of what we would find, we were pleasantly pleased. My wife prefers buffet food and that is where we spent 5 evenings as well as lunch times. The choice of food in the buffet was very extensive and you could not go wrong. It was nice to have 2 sweets if you wanted. Tried the MDR's on 2 nights which was nice to be waited on by very attentive staff.

All the ports were wonderful, the highlight being a NCL tour to the Everglades. Only glad we did not start the cruise in Miami as the queues to board there were VERY long.

A few hours in Great Stirrup Cay was a nice change which is the private island of NCL. Very hot and not too much shade.

All the crew very attentive and friendly and an excellent way to start cruising

Ideal room with balcony big enough for lounging albeit on chairs and to soak up the Caribbean sun
