Review summary

This was our 7th cruise, the 4th  on Norwegian and the second time on the Pearl. It was just perfect in every way. The cruise staff was wonderful to us and the ship was kept clean all the time, from our cabin to all the common areas.

We enjoyed the shows onboard this time.  I am glad they were good as dinner and shows go together.

Loved going through the locks at Panama.  What was so amazing was how little room was left in the lock once the ship was in place.  The Pearl is a Panamax ship meaning it could not be any wider or longer to fit. 

The weather was great the whole time, even though it was at the end of the rainy season there with only minimal rain one day of the trip. All in all I would encourage cruisers to go there and see for themselves.  Mary Oyerly

going in to this type of cabin had be a bit concerned I would not like it much but in reality we spent so little time in our cabin that this was not an issue at all. It gave us enough daylight to know it was day or night.

Ship tip

We ate three times at the Garden café the rest of the meals were eaten at specialty restaurants or at the buffet on deck 12
