We selected this small cruise line because of great reviews, but in this first effort to visit Columbia, Panama and Costa Rica they failed their passengers in so many ways it is difficult to find any positives. Digging deep, I would say ... Read more

Looking for a small ship cruise to the Saguenay fjord, I found Pearl Seas online! Luxury cruising in well-appointed cabins (more like hotel rooms!) and ample larger spaces for observation, dining, and just relaxing. When the seas were a ... Read more

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. My wife and I are no big fans of mega-ships, so we thought we'd give Pearl Mist a try. We chose to sail from Portland, Maine, to Québec City in the fall so we could ... Read more

Really enjoyed the small ship. For a relatively new cruise line, service and resources were excellent. The local entertainers were a treat--they added real local color and authenticity. Some shore excursions need refinement in terms of ... Read more
