It was horrible. We've missed four ports and the ship stopped sailing in Barcelona, Spain due to mechanical problems. We had to book last minute flight to get to Rome, Italy where the disembarkation supposedly scheduled to arrive in Rome on Friday, 07/05
Norwegian Pearl Cruise Review to Europe - Western Europe
Review summaryThis was a horrible cruise. We were required to find last minute flight to get to Rome, Italy since we have post cruise planned. however, due to the ship had mechanical problems, passengers were forced to find a solution to get off the ship in Barcelona, Spain instead of Rome, Italy. NCL promised to cover $300 airfare reimbursement, but each ticket cost over $400 per person. I think the airfare should have been reimbursed at 100%. In addition, we were not able to utilize the ultimate beverage package since we were stuck in Barcelona, Spain for three days, in which it should be refunded at least 30%. Passengers kept getting bad announcements daily, in which it spoiled our vacation.
