So let me start my saying that when I started planning our cruise to Alaska I looked at almost every cruise line available. We settled on NCL because there would be three of us and we didn't want to be sharing a room. Therefore we really ... Read more

I have cruised Norwegian line for the last 8 cruises and have found it a great delight, especially on the Pearl. However this particular cruise felt devoid of the joy and excitement I felt from the crew and the itinerary of the past. We ... Read more

We did our cruise on the last week of the season, from 20-27 Sept, 2015. Although rain was predicted beforehand, it turned out to be almost perfect, even warm enough at one point for me to sunbathe on our balcony. This was after almost 2 ... Read more

I need to preface this review, in that it has been over 30 years since my wife and I have been on a cruise, and a lot has changed. We had a great time on our 7 day Alaskan Cruise, but it took a little time to get use to the size of the ... Read more

Very disappointed in NCL…I was on Vacation to get away from City noise and hustle bustle. To no avail, while in the most beautiful part of the world…Glacier Bay, in Alaska, NCL had construction going on around the pool or ... Read more

We stayed in room 11524. A two bedroom family villa. One nice thing about being in a suite is priority embarkation in Seattle. We where on the boat in 30 minutes. Nice room but located under the gym. Can you imagine what we heard every 6 ... Read more

The Norwegian Pearl is a beautiful ship in need of some technological updates. Be prepared to spend as much on the shore excursions and food and drinks as the cost of the cruise. The activities aboard the ship were all geared to spending ... Read more

For months we looked at reviews and wondered what our experience with NCL would be. There is something I saw a while back that summed it all up: There is no such thing as a bad cruise. Catastrophes aside, this is true. No matter the ... Read more

We flew to Seattle a day before our cruise to avoid any flight delay issues. Four of the five of us had cruising experience with one rookie in the group! The embarkation process ran smoothly for the most part; however, we were told by ... Read more

The NCL Pilot's Choice Glacier excursion in Juneau was awesome, well worth the price. Would do it again! Ships that docked in the morning due to weather had this excursion cancelled, we docked later in the day and our excursion was able ... Read more

Of the cruises we have taken, this was the most enjoyable. The staff on the Pearl knew how to provide wonderful customer service from the moment we boarded the ship to disembarkation. We were fortunate to have a suite which admittedly ... Read more
