We booked two weeks before sailing and got an enclosed balcony cabin for the first time - we loved it! Ultra quiet and quite roomy. Storage space was limited, but okay for a 7 (or 10) day cruise. Our flight was delayed on sail day, so ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the convenience of sailing from a local port of call (NYC) on one of NCL's newest, largest, and most amenable to a single cruiser (with their Studio rooms). Although I was unable to secure a Studio room ... Read more

Norwegian Pearl is a pearl of a ship, she is clean, friendly and full of really good vibes. We went on a 12 day cruise and just returned today. I have learned that having a good cruise is having a great ship not just the port of calls. ... Read more

This is an average cruise ship with small rooms. (Read my room review) The food was decent and complimentary Juices, lemonade and water when dining. They confiscate your wine at check in (San Pedro) as they have NO SYSTEM for counting and ... Read more

This sailing was my second cruise. I went with a friend from college, and we were both excited to see Mexico. Overall, I was generally pleased with the sailing, and the way that Norwegian handled some hiccups along the way. The original ... Read more

Overall - The appearance of the ship, the comfort of the cabin and the quality of the food were improved tremendously from my last NCL cruise. The itinerary was good and the ports (not Costa Maya - a waste) left us with incredible ... Read more

Ship review: Room very comfortable (just the 2 of us) and had a balcony-a must. Service always good. Easy access to food at all hours-sometimes hectic in the cafeteria buffet, but fast, and if I don't have to cook it, I can be chill and ... Read more
