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 clothing and other things. Since the Norwegian Pearl is an older ship, the balcony size was so nice as compared with some of the newer Norwegian ships where balconies are minuscule. The bathrooms were adequate but, if you have difficulties getting in a tub for your shower this one was very tall. I really liked the pool area. There were four hot tubs and two pools.... no slides or fancy things. There was plenty of room to sit out at the pool both in the sun and under the covered deck. There was a climbing wall on the top deck, shuffleboard and large chess pieces on the outside deck and ping pong inside. Although we did not bring children, there appeared to be a nice “splash academy” area for kids. The Pearl has the same speciality restaurants as most of the fleet. Our package included 4 speciality restaurants and they all were excellent. We ate at the Garden Cafe (buffet) several times at first but frankly, the food was the same for lunch and dinner and the variety poor so we opted for the complementary restaurants where the food was much better. The bars and lounge areas were very nice. The entertainment was second rate. We did go to one of the shows but the entertainment was not up to par with other Norwegian cruises we’ve been on. I think this was reflected in the theater being less than half full. We walked through the casino but did not play on this cruise. All in all it was a great cruise. Prior to the cruise many cruise critic members connected on the CC boards for our cruise and planned a pre- meet dinner in Barcelona and meet and greet during the cruise. This made our cruising experience so much nicer by putting names with comments and just connecting with people of all ages and from different locations. I would recommend this for any cruise.

My husband and I went on a cruise that will always be memorable. The cabin was very spacious, our cabin steward was phenomenal and the dining was yummy! We had a midship balcony cabin and Michael Viernes our cabin steward always was attentive and provided excellent service. We purchased the 5 dinner specialty dining and it was excellent. When we dined in the main Summer Palace dining room, we always asked for Kamilla . I do not recall her last name but she was excellent. She always went out of her way and knew what we needed/wanted. We dined at the captain's table and that was a real treat!!! Captain Schiaffino is extremely personable and always made a point to say hello as he passed the passengers. The entertainment was good and the length of time for the shows was perfect. Ports and excursions were well planned. We normally do not purchased excursions, but this time we did due to the nature of our cruise. I would definitely go back on this ship with this crew...they made my trip a wonderful experience.

This was our first cruise. We would have rated the cruise as a 4+ out of f5 but for one major issue. More on that later. I would say the cabin itself (ocean view) was what we expected: Unobstructed view, clean, large enough, etc. The food was pretty good, and much better than that in the specialty restaurants. The dining upgrade was worth having. The entertainment was also good, actually better than we expected. The staff was great, wonderfully pleasant throughout. But... You do not want to find yourself lodging on Deck 5, Rooms 5602 - 5610. That was an unmitigated nightmare (or whatever the term is when you are wide awake but going through an agonizing ordeal. Picture yourself in an Airstream trailer. Now picture someone whacking the side of your trailer with a metal bar, and then beating the trailer with a smaller utensil for about ten seconds. Then picture that happening every night from about 1:00 a.m. until 5:30 a.m. There were actually a variety of noises throughout the trip, each unique, but unbelievably loud and inconvenient. Guest Services staff, an engineer and others came down to figure out the source and/or a solution. Couldn't figure it out. Sound apparently moves in mysterious ways in metallic boats. We couldn't be moved, even to an interior cabin, because the ship was filled to the brim. We finally advised Guest Services we would need to leave the ship in Corfu (Day 4), but we were then advised other guests were disembarking in Corfu, and we could use that room to sleep in. Didn't actually happen until the next day, but from Day 5 - 10 the zombie nightmare was over. My real issue with NCL is the apparent duuplicity. Staff is very sympathetic with the situation; they acknowledge it is unbearable. The manager even offers that these rooms should not be used by guests because, unless you purchase a drink package and faithfully indulge throughout the night, I really don't think you can sleep through that level of noise. (My comments about the drink package. He just indicated these rooms should not be made available to guests). They did provide $400 in shipboard credit, which is enough to purchase 52 bottles of water, but we were assured that when we contact the corporate office in Florida, everything will be made right. I did contact the NCL corporate office, and I was advised that "noise is subjective," so it turns out it was really just my (and my wife's) sensitivity to noise that was the problem. She missed going ashore on two of the first four stops because of a lack of sleep. The guests in rooms 5602 and 5606 would disagree with NCL's assessment, as we commiserated over our plights on occasion. A couple of us even recorded some of the noise so we could relive it during daylight hours. Not to sound too cynical, but it appears that the staff is coached to wholeheartedly agree with the guests on all particulars, apparently to avoid the zombies making a scene, and direct the guests to contact corporate, and then have corporate deliver the bad news: Pound sand. Days 6 - 11 were excellent: The food tasted better, the shows were more entertaining, and the shore excursions more exciting. We were just a little disappointed that our sensitivity to sound put a damper on our first five days of travel. Read Less
