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

This wasn't our first cruise so we know what's expected. After doing some research online about cruise lines, boyfriend and I ended up booking a last minute cruise to Alaska. We actually drove from Los Angeles to Seattle, quite a drive we ... Read more

The Pearl crew did a great job in making this our best cruise. The Glacier trip was a wonderful experience on this clear sunny day as the Capitan turned the ship around slowly 3 times so everyone could get a good look as large chunks of ... Read more

The cruise was great! But, don't have high hopes for the food. It all looks good but tastes like cardboard. A lot of choices when it comes to the buffets but the quality leaves a lot to be desired! The La Bistro was a prime choice for ... Read more

This is my thoughts on a cruise that I had lots of high hopes for WEBSITE The NCL website is just wasted space on some server. When you search the site and find the shore excursions you want to take and add them into shopping cart ... Read more
