Pearl review

Sail Date: March 24, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship facilities and dining were good. At times the excursion staff appeared to be short handed and were not available when needed. Internet was very slow, fortunately we purchased the unlimited plan. Smoking guests dominated the pool area and made it difficult to enjoy that area. Disembarkation was unsatisfactory. The guidelines for leaving the ship were not followed by the staff as they hurried to get all guests off the ship.
