Overall Great Cruise with a Few Minor Downfalls

Just returned home from this 7-day western Caribbean itinerary on Norwegian Pearl. It was just my boyfriend and I (both in our early-mid 30s). I have previously been on 2 Princess cruises, on Norwegian Escape twice and the Dawn last year. My boyfriend has also been on the Epic. Used NCL arranged airfare and transfers and flew into Miami from Maine on day of the cruise. This is the first time I ...

This is going to be a fairly short review. We have been to all the ports and the only excursion we booked, got cancelled. GENERAL IMPRESSIONS • EMBARKATION- 3 Stars; Considering we are Platinum members, this took longer than it should have. We came off the Encore, so we were in the terminal by 10:00. We didn’t get on the ship until 11:00. • CABIN- 4 Stars; the bed in our cabin is really ...

Cruise was horrible bad service. Vacation was wasted always waiting in a line for everything. Pool drained and closed 2nd & 3rd days. Also all hot tubs shut down. Shows cancelled after waiting for the show to start. Over 2 hrs to get off ship. Activities not available that were listed. Reservations at Cagneys steak house we were 10 minutes late and refused to serve us. Elevators were so slow ...

Herding the Cattle

Where do I begin? NCL Pearl out of Miami---Embarkation was painful. We had to sit in a waiting area and be called by group to even be able to enter the ship...approximately 45 min. First time I have experienced that so let the cattle herding begin. This was my 4th cruise, my 2nd with NCL and I will NEVER cruise with them again. The entire trip left me feeling depressed. We booked a room with a ...

They don't have a big dining areas like on Royal Caribbean were every night you have a assigned table where you eat with the same people plus they have a lobster night. And you guys done away with it The girl told us you did it as a cost thing. I thought your buffet was like the same stuff. I did like their eggs benedict when they didn't run out of it . Also when to their steak house which it was ...

We booked this 5 day cruise to celebrate my husband’s birthday as well as our friends birthday. The dates covered both & the ports were ones we had not before been to. Embarkation took only minutes, & then we had about a half hour wait in the holding area before boarding. For an older ship, the Pearl seems in good shape & appeared clean. Rooms were fine with plenty of storage for a 5 day ...

I do not know how people say the food was not good. Ever meal we had was great especially the Italian resturant and Cagneys Steak house. The staff were very friendly and always available. Christina in the Casino was the most memorable for me. Every night when my sister and I entered the Casino, she greeted us by name. When ever she heard us laughing and yelling that our slot machine paid ...

Overall we had a fantastic time. Really enjoyed the Peal everything was beyond our expectations; service, food, cabin steward and excursions. The best restaurant was Le Bistro we were delighted when the coffee came it was a French Press! Best dessert the tiramisu in La Cucina. The only thing I have to say about La Cucina it looks more like a Mexican restaurant that Italian. We had Thanksgiving ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose Norwegian based on a friend's recommendation. I turned 60 this year and it was my birthday present to myself. It started out badly and just got worse from there. My flight was delayed, the airline rerouted me so I would make it to the ship, then proceeded to lose my bag so I boarded with nothing with me. I went to Guest services, explained what had happened, they gave me a tee shirt and ...

Wanted to do a Transatlantic and the ports of call were great! The staff was friendly enough but the ship was a complete let down! Dirty smelly cabin and everywhere I sat the seats were dirty and very uncomfortable! Food was just ok never really hot. Bedspread was torn and had seen better days! Throw pillows in our cabin smelled and were stained as well as the throw they put at the bottom of the ...
