NCL Pearl was fantastic

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

I want to thank everyone on the NCL Pearl, my wife and I sailed on her Feb 17th to the 24th. What a fantastic time. We went to Stirrup Cay NCL's private island, cool and windy, but pleasant. Ochos Rios Jamaica was outstanding. We had a bus tour though Courtney Taylor Tours to see the Spice Man, went inside a public supermarket for cold drinks, lunched at Jamaica meat pie place, went to the Irie Blue hole and dove off the cliffs into the falls, refreshing. We went to an open flea market and the ladies were tough on buying things. We final finished up at Scotchies for jerk chicken, what a treat. Had a wonderful time in Jamaica. The excursion at at Grand Cayman was the wreck and reef snorkeling and it was the best snorkeling ever. Saw a lot of fish. At Cozumel we went to a private resort called Mr. Sancho's about 10-15 mins from port, took taxi for $10.00 tip included. Thought we were on the ship with the amount of drinks and food that was brought to us. Had a swim up pool bar, More shops to shop and the relaxing beach area. Spent 5 hrs there.

Our time spent on the ship was very entertaining from the shows to the pool area on deck. The bridge tour with the people from our meet and greet was very informative about the ship. Had a cabin crawl(poker run) with several different cabins being shown. Our stateroom was 8552 and it was great, very well centered from everything.

I do want to say the the NCL Pearl is rated the #1 ship in the fleet and I see why because of the Captain and his crew. Less
