My wife and I took the first cruise of our lives to celebrate our 35th anniversary, and it was wonderful. The crew of the Norwegian Pearl was friendly and helpful. We greatly appreciated the connections between the airport and pier, along with to the excursions.


Our favorite part probably was the scenery, along with the terrific, mild weather that was warmer than we expected. We didn't see as much wildlife as we hoped for, but did see a baby whale playing with a sea lion during our excursion in Juneau. The train ride in Skagway was gorgeous. My wife loved the gardens in Victoria.


We felt comfortable without getting too dressed up. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the musical productions and the comedy performer. Good chance we will take another cruise in the future.

Ship Tip

Booking shore excursions through NCL cost a little bit more, but was worth it to us because we walked off the ship and directly to buses that took us to our departure point. It was comforting know we were in a group and not fretting about the Pearl leaving without us in the case of a flat tire, etc.
