Overall - Not Impressed
Destination: Western Caribbean
Now about the Pearl, food and staff....
the Buffet: Nightmare every time we went to eat. we tried to go at different times but it was always the same story. too many people. took about 20 minutes to find a table everyday, every meal.
I never got up for a second plate of food because it was always too hectic.
the selection in the buffet was very limited and the food was ok, nothing more.
the deserts were boring as well.
the pasta station had the same two pasta's the whole week. they offered marinara sauce, meat sauce or alfredo white sauce. when I asked for rosee sauce, two people at the station had no idea what it was so I asked them to mix a bit of alfredo and marinara.
there is no service. no one asks you if you want a drink.
2 days out of the 7, I ended up cleaning my own table and taking my plates to a counter because no one was cleaning the table.
I ate at the Italian rest. twice in the week, no complaints there, food, service, everything was great.
The Pool: this was a real joke. small pool, no slide like they show on the site. never, ever a place to sit.
seems like they let to many passengers on the ship and don't have enough chairs. never spent more than 10 minutes by the pool because there was never any room.
The casino: nice casino, friendly staff for the most part. machines are tight like hell. if you hit $50, take it out and move on, you won't hit anything else. one person dropped a drink on my wife's lap (and didn't apologize) my wife had to even ask her for a tissue to clean her lap.
the Rooms were nice, and our housekeeper kept it clean and was friendly.
The Entertainment: the shows at night (that last 45 minutes to an hour) were really good, but the entertainment after those shows were done wasn't great. boring for the most part.
One entertainer shouldn't have been there at all. he was dry, no sense of humor, looked bothered at all times and really really horrible. I will not post names here.
One person who was in charge of something, not sure what...I approached to ask a question and replied so snotty. not nice at all.
I felt like we were a bother to some staff.
I am not at all picky and very easy to please but I would never, ever do this cruise again. Less
