Just returned from the Pearl

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Well, where to start. All in all a good cruise. Was it the greatest-NO. Was it the worst-NO. All in all very nice. One bad meal all others good to excellent.Bad meal 2nd night in the Indigo Dining room-I ordered pan sear perch-it was like cardboard, tasteless, bland-wife ordered curried chicken-very little chicken, no cury taste. All other mesals from good to outtanding,excellent lamb chops, etc. Our one specialit restaurant, Numbrero, was outstanding-meat aserved on a skewer-we swtuck with the filet, garlic beef, etc.
Shows pretty good-Frankie Valle review was outstanding. Broadway reviews, very good-magician comedian only fair.

We had a balcony cabin very far forward-was OK- would suggest mid ships for balcony cabins. Don't over pack-space limited.

We did their excursion on Cozumel-swim with the Dolphins-outtanding.
Did excursions on Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman on our own
On their private island, get on the tenders early or you will scramble for good More lounge locations. Ocho Rios sand Cayman, did our own thing thanks to Cruise Critic and other internet soures,

Our cabin very far forward. -go to mid ships-much better.

We do not do Bingo, or any of the other games. A little bit in the Casino it is VERY SMOKY I am an ex smoker and it STINKS. They should ban it in the Casino

Most of our at sea days spent on pool deck (get there early to claim a lounge) We are not big on the games or bingo, etc.

Breakfast buffet very good-can get crowded at times.
A pianist-singer on the bar deck-Don Alexander-outstanding.

Last day(at sea)-outstanding German-Bavarian lunch on back deck behind buffet area.
Ship officers on NCL make themselves available.
Cruise Director Pedro only fair at best.

Ay other questions, email me at Less
