Carribean Cruise by eodo3

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I was surprised after paying so much (and adding drink package and internet package), that we ended up paying for so much more on the ship (had to upgrade internet ($199), drink package only include lower levels of drinks, and all the specialty restaurants were ala cart, plus there was a 15.00 service charge per day per passenger which seemed excessive. My next cruise I will be more careful to find a cruise that is truly all inclusive.

10 hour delay and not a single notice via text, call, email etc. We were in the dark! by fritzstein

I was so unhappy with the embarkation process and not being notified at all that it really started the cruise on a big negative. I do not think I will ever go on another NCL cruise again. I will look towards other cruise lines.

Embark Hell!!! by wenlaw425

The cruise itself was superb. The embarking was a nightmare and NCL did a poor job of compensating for the inconvenience as well as keeping us informed.

Unorganized Chaos by anthonrg

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We will not cruise with this line again. The ship activities are a snooze fest. Port calls are unorganized. When Tampa port was closed due to fog the ship should have had a daily activity ready the moment guests woke up ready. Instead there was confusion and hours of people waiting in lobby's with their luggage. Really need better management concerning the cruise coordinating. Better communication throughout the cruise as well.

A very relaxing and great cruise. Going through the Panama Canal was one of the highlights. Almost every body on board was on deck to experience this.

Good Cruise by capeman

Verified Review

I chose this cruise by the Ports that I have not seen yet. The price was good so I did some research of the ship and just winged it at the ports, all worked out well as it could possibly be. The ship is kept clean, as there are always crew members working around the ship wiping, vacuuming and shining. the cabin was small but livable for the 2 week cruise. Cabin steward was good at keeping us happy and there was always a towel animal at nights turn down. Dining was good at both main dining rooms and the buffet as well. I have no complaints of the service there. There is an abundance of musical entertainment thought-out the ship going everyday. The latin band, Avalon, was great, but were mostly in the Atrium where there is rug, so dancing was a laborious effort. We found that we could dance on the deck above, deck 8 in front of the O'Sheehans restaurant on a Vinyl floor with no trouble to anyone. There is a dance floor on deck 13 in the Spinnaker lounge where bands are rotated in daily, so that was a nice change from the rug in the Atrium. The productions shows in the Theater were all good, as well as guest entertainers and the crew productions. The crew on NCL are a happy crew, always greeting you and respectful. The ports were interesting, with shuttles to get out of the container area of the port in Columbia then easy walk or taxi to see the city. Most of the other ports like Colon, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Jamaica, you could walk in to town or catch a taxi right in port. I was never wowed on this cruise, I have been wowed before with NCL but not this time. It was good but not a "wow"! Have fun on your cruise!

All in all a great cruise. by lbremer

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Pearl is a lovely ship meticulously maintained. Our only slight disappointment was in some of the food offerings. La Cucina was absolutely not up to NCL's usual standards and we found most of the dishes in the main dining room were just too heavily spiced for those of us who prefer milder fare. My Thanksgiving turkey dinner was the worst meal I have had on any NCL ship. Cagney's, as usual, was fantastic.

Food is exceptional and the service. Easy in and out of the ports. Costa Maya Ana Cozumel are the best stops and good excursions.
