Great Itinerary

Review for Norwegian Pearl to Mediterranean

We chose this cruise for the great itinerary and I would highly recommend most of these ports to anybody. Second time cruising but the first was only a 3 day cruise and that was long ago. GOOD: 1. We loved most of these ports as they offered a little bit something different in each one, they all had incredible beauty and history. 2. We had an ocean view cabin which was a decent size, ...

I love the itinerary , has lots of places to visit. Ship is average , food in the restaurant average and nothing special. They have same menu all day and they just rotate the menu from different restaurant. Buffet not much selection, you’ll have the same breakfast every day. Entertainment very poor as they don’t have enough entertainment. Music entertainment should be all day. Performers are ...

We choose this ship strictly for the ports of call. We had read several bad reviews but decided to take a chance and go with this ship anyway because no other cruise line was going to all of these ports. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The ship was very nice. It was very pretty and in great shape. The crew were very friendly and accommodating. They were always cheerful and asking us ...

Took this cruise because only thing with good itinerary and schedule. Concerned because Carnival competitor, but okay overall. Great ports, but 4 tenders. Process for tender tickets inefficient, Required somebody getting up before 6 to get in line . However, kudos for captain for getting us into Mykonos when other ships didn't try. Ship was in good shape, and pleasant. Didn't have higher ...

We had been on the Getaway Baltic Cruise and loved it. The Ship is run very well. The food was great, getting on and off the ship was easy. The Pearl is like a whole different line.It's like the dollar store of cruise ships. The bartenders and servers are great. The food is not. The first day and last day is pretty good. Every other day is hit or miss. Mostly miss. I have been on many cruise ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We selected this cruise as it visited the many ports that we were keen to visit on our first visit to the mediterranean which was also our first cruise as well ! We arrived in the departure city of Barcelona 2 nights prior to the cruise commencing which provided us time to explore the city and visit the many sights ( including the Sagrada Familia which is the number one tourist attraction i ...

Excellent Honeymoon Cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise as our honeymoon cruise because of the itinerary mainly that it started in Barcelona with a wide variety of stops from Monaco to Mykonos. Embarkation had a slight glitch as the ship's systems went down temporarily, but it didn't take long for us to get into the ship. The ship is not very big and it was easy to figure out where we were going. The ship's newsletter ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Going to 7 (8 including Venice) locations in 10 days throughout the Mediterranean was wonderful. My only criticism was that we had to tender in three ports. This meant obtaining tender place slips the morning of the tender which could be 6am. Our mini-suite balcony state room was very nice. There was more than enough room to hang and store ...
