Review summary

The tours were a little expensive. I love the transatlantic cruises. This was my fifth one. We were on the boat for 16 days and the entertainment was a little lame.

Third cruise on the Pearl and the entertainment was not as good as before. Jugglers, bad jokes, card trick magician, and acrobats aren't up to snuff.

Not much where we were docked. Did the sunset rum cruise, very nice. The glass bottom boat cruise was cancelled for weather.

Port Canaveral, Florida

Nothing there we were interested in. Got off the ship there. Took a shuttle to the airport.

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Been there too many times, left at Cape Canaveral.

Walked right off, no problem.
