We have cruised with American Cruise Line (100 passengers) seven times so we were interested and excited to be going on the Inaugural cruise of the Pearl Mist of the Pearl Seas Cruise Line with 200 passengers. The trip was outstanding! From the time we embarked at Baltimore and disembarked in Halifax, it was 11 days of fun and relaxation.
--the ship was lovely, with well-appointed cabins and lounges. Smaller rooms such as the library were also available where you could get away to read or just watch the world go by.
--Our cabin was spacious with good lighting and plenty of drawer space. The beds were heavenly with sheets and a comforter comparable to a luxury hotel. The rooms were quiet, very conducive to sleeping.Our steward was a 5+, always available assisting us with any needs.
--The dining room was pleasant in decor and ambiance; it was quiet so that conversations could flow easily at the table. The food was superb, with half portions if requested, and More
experienced wait staff who kept their eye on our table.
--Port and shore excursions were great.....well organized, The tours were excellent and we had enough free time to wander or do extra things in port. Harold, our lecturer, was informative and a great speaker, holding our interest with some humor mixed in.
--All of the staff on the ship were friendly and visible. They were very accommodating and helped to make the trip a great experience.
--I was concerned about disembarkation at 6 in the morning, but a bus was awaiting us and our bags were ready to go out. It was a great send off!
--The passengers were a "cut above,"...pleasant, interesting, and fun! Dress was smart casual, which was nice.
--The trip was worth the price....beautiful ship, spacious cabins, lovely public rooms, with friendly and helpful staff!
--We are looking forward to our next cruise on the Pearl Mist! Less
