Quick 3 day cruise by chadslaughter

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

A very short cruise but for under $250 + free drink package I'm not complaining. We enjoyed the smaller ship as it made it easier to navigate. I believe our kids would have been bored had we brought them.

Miserable Staff by dwrightelcc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

5 day getaway. WiFi costs a fortune. Stay in mid ship if you can to avoid sea sickness.

Free at Sea is a Scam by Zeodoc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

very disappointing... the Free at sea promotions were a scam, the exclusions were not transparent but buried in the fine print Free internet means 100 min for 1 guest Free Drink package means no water Free specialty dining means 1 meal Free excursion means a $50 credit

Efficiency is the Pearl's Superpower by gcormier1001972

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Just got off the Pearl. All in all I was impressed with the efficiency of the organization and the cleanliness of the overall ship. The embarking and disembarking processes went very smoothly. Also purchasing excursions were quickly processed and you received the tickets within minutes. The same for canceled excursions, they were credited immediately. We never had a billing issue. We loved our balcony stateroom. As staterooms go, this was the best we have ever had. The room was spacious and clean. We found all staff and service was good. I wasn't impressed at all with the buffet (lots of cold over cooked food), the sit down complimentary restaurants were about as good as a chain restaurant. The specialty restaurants we went to were much better. They were not up to a 5star review, but things were well cooked, seasoned appropriately and had nice presentations. My husband and I liked the specialty restaurant the Bistro. We found there were plenty of deck chairs at all times. That doesn't happen on bigger ships. We took part in some of the games and activities and we enjoyed them. We laughed a lot. As far as the shows go, you're not getting Broadway quality, but you are not getting a community production either. I was impressed with the male dancers, the Michael Jackson impersonation and the comedian. All in all the shows were entertaining. The internet and the Norwegian App worked occasionally. Both were pretty useless, not to mention frustrating. We would recommend taking part in the Whiskey tasting. We did that a few times and learned some cool things. Do go on the Pearl if you like smaller ships. Don't go on this ship if you like lots of options Do go on this ship if you like freestyle dining and don't mind average Sysco food at best. Don't go on this cruise if you like scheduled dining times and dress up days. Don't go on this ship if you can't stand over selling everything and being nickel and dime.

Shows Great. Food Good. Service lacking in a few areas by kbongi9999

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Enjoyed the time away. Entertainment was very good and food was good. Was hoping for a little more service then we got. In the future might think twice about freestyle cruising. Not a fan of pre-paid gratuity base of this experience.

Disappointed by Cruiser81382735

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

I have been on Epic, Sky, and I loved it. Pearl was really bad, the service super slow, no music at the pool during the day, only after 4, drinks very weak at the bar outside, huge line for the drinks(around 20 min in line for each drink), no people running around to provide drinks for the guests, food was ok. Not much entertainment at night. I am disappointed with this.

Nice ship, isolated ports of call by mariaeugenia105

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

The cruise itself was great and staff wonderful. Food was ok to good, nothing exiting. Entertainment was very nice and a good variety. Ports were limited since you did not get to visit the cities or country, you are kept at the ctt try cruiselines’ facilities.

Perfect winter getaway by mmkerins

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)

We were in a group of 3 balcony rooms of 6 passengers. I would not get the drink package again, my husband and 2 others in our group do not drink enough to justify it (at least 7 drinks per day). I loved being able to dine together. Make the reservations for your specialty dining on the day you board. We enjoyed the "perfect couple" and similar activities in the Spinnaker.

Very Disappointed. by bcesare

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We knew we were able to bring a bottle of wine aboard with a corking fee. We had to stand in line at the CS for 1 1/2 hours to retrieve our luggage. That was totally uncalled for.

Small Ship but Large F U N by dreg1620

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group

I loved the upgrade to the Penthouse and all the amenities. I was disappointed in the pool sizes and the crowdiness, but the overall ship was wonderful. The restaurants, the bars, the entertainment and the staff was outstanding!

Best Cruise Director ..... EVER! by priuspete

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

NCL is an older and more experienced line, and this history pays off in a great overall cruise! This trip, the Cruise Director (Tiara, an American) was the best ever -- struck an excellent balance of information and humor without crossing the "too stupid" line that many others have.
