Cabins include full-sized bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, hairdryers, safes, toiletries, phones, private climate controls, minibars and DVD players. Wi-Fi is available and complimentary throughout the ship. Each cabin includes two twin beds that combine to form a king bed. Accessible cabins and singles cabins are available.
All meals are eaten in the main dining room, which has set times with open seating. Meals generally are prepared to order, and special diets can be accommodated. Complimentary room service also is available.
Pearl Mist features six lounges, a lecture room, a library with books and board games, a fitness center, computer workstations, onboard medical services, one main lounge and a putting green.
