Once In A Lifetime...

Sail Date: September 18, 2016

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

its a "once in a lifetime" trip that must be taken. The scenery is amazing, for lack of a better word! We thoroughly enjoyed the Alaskan ports. However, we were not too impressed with the Norwegian Pearl ship that we were on. I highly recommend this trip though. The views outweighed our opinions of the ship.


Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was decent. Bathroom was a little "tight" fitting.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Both processes were very smooth!
Ship Quality
NCL Pearl needed updating. We had a balcony room: the paint was chipping on the pipe running over our balcony deck and the wooden handrail was in need of repair.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
None of the entertainment piqued our interest (age of people: 30s & 60s)
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was decent, to say the least. But the dining room (Summer Palace) and the staff were great!
