Great cruise with nonstop excitement by jwmsmith

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was our first NCL cruise but had cruised with other carriers five or more times. We did not take full advantage of the entertainment activities on board and feel that our cruise would have been more enjoyable if we had participated in the offered activities. As usual on every cruise ship, the passengers quickly lay claim to seating by the pool for the entire day. My wife and I were left sitting on towels on the deck or sharing one chair on two separate occasions. The food was excellent and the beverage package and specialty dining was a tremendous bonus. Thanks for a good cruise.

We have cruised many times before and there was something magical about the ports we visited. My husband is so picky and to see how happy he was made my heart smile

Last sail with by samtinger

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Western

From Booking, I was allowed to select a room category that gave me one Free at Sea. I selected Beverage Package on the website, but when it came down to checking my payments, said the room category was NOT eligible for Free at Sea--but it was NCL's issue that I was able to select the option initially. Of course, NCL said it was 's error. Ended up paying $300 more plus increased travel insurance. Just done with PL.

Quick 3 day cruise by chadslaughter

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Western

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

Disappointed by Cruiser81382735

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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.

Free at Sea is a Scam by Zeodoc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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
Ship: Norwegian Pearl / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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.
