The entertainment was good. I would rank Random as the best lounge entertainer, he is very good. The juggler, comedian was excellent and the Las Vegas Tenors were great. The Cirque show was also excellent. I found the Cabernet ... Read more

Had a wonderful cruise to Alaska on the Norwegian Sun. Two days of rain, the rest sunshine and blue skies all the way. The highlight was our trip to Glacier Bay. Everyone should go. The Sun is a lovely ship, just the right size, not too ... Read more

Norwegian Cruise Lines know how to treat their guests! The rooms are very well laid out, making excellent use of the little space available on ships. The bed was two single beds pushed together, which left a canyon between us, but they ... Read more

We stayed in room 11524. A two bedroom family villa. One nice thing about being in a suite is priority embarkation in Seattle. We where on the boat in 30 minutes. Nice room but located under the gym. Can you imagine what we heard every 6 ... Read more

The Norwegian Pearl is a beautiful ship in need of some technological updates. Be prepared to spend as much on the shore excursions and food and drinks as the cost of the cruise. The activities aboard the ship were all geared to spending ... Read more
