Sad to say that it was the problematic PEARL. Rumors of previous problems; and true to form this boat died and we were left stranded on our own about 2/3 thru cruise. Attempts to continue along the Med coastline was cancelled.. This was a 2week cruise covering a lot of ports, thus the reason to book it. Food was very good. Specialty options are well worth the extra money and highly recommend. Free style cruising is an understatement. If you think dressing up for dinner is tough, this is for you. Unfortunate that guidelines of some decorum are ignored and not enforced. Drink prices are over inflated especially with some better known brands. Surely it is a motive to justify the drink package. Be careful on ordering a double. Some standard Drinks with a better brand can we $20 PLUS tip. Higher than NYC or Vegas pricing. Some bartenders are poor, just make the drink to an exact shot and move on. Find a good one and you will be better treated as a repeater. Steam and sauna area in Spa is a high daily charge in the spa. First I ver experienced to charge for this . Read Less

Our bucket list cruise did turn out to be a "Cruise of a lifetime", but, not in the way we hoped. Arrived 3 days early in Amsterdam and had a wonderful time exploring that city. Embarkation was a breeze and we were delighted with the cabin (11134), initially. Evenings were interrupted by folks playing basketball dspite the sign stating activities were to end at 5 PM. So easy to fix, just put the balls away! Dinner the first evening in the Summer Palace proved to be on par with an Applebee's. Formality of service proved to be nonexistent, quality of food was mediocre. Exploration of other options proved more fruitful, specifically, Indigo and Cagney's with formally trained servers. The entertainment, overall, was quite good. There wa an acrobat male and female team that were incredible. The ships crew of singers and dancers were on par with other cruises. Their "Legends" show was outstanding. Activities were spotty, poorly timed and some never happened. Service was subpar compared to other cruise experiences. Having numerous mishaps it appears that communication is their biggest pitfall. All mishaps (but one) were rectified, but, only after having to be (begrudgingly) a squeaky wheel. This was a repositioning cruise that came up short as one of the ships engines experienced problems that were not rectified. Our cruise ended 2 ports early and missed another enroute. This was my first Norwegian cruise and will be my last. Poor communication, training and management failing to manage seems to be the primary problem. Yes, a cruise of a lifetime and one that will never be forgotten. Read Less

We were so excited to go on this cruise! We went on board and had a great onboard experience. That night we went to the show and it was blah... we both agreed it was because we are spoiled in San francisco with off broadway shows. At the show- that was the first and ONLY time we saw the cruise director Pedro. He was MIA for two weeks- we “heard his voice through the ceiling” for announcements but never saw him around the ship at events or welcoming people on board. We saw the ACD Sandra during events, bingo and pool parties. We then got word that our ship was not in danger but would be slipping ports to go into Barcelona early, to fix the problem. 2 days after that we had a 745am announcement saying: your cruise is ending here and we will not be going to our ending point (Rome) and we were to find our own transportation home or to Rome. Let’s just say- LACK OF COMMUNICATION! we heard announcements around 3 times a day from that first day to Barcelona to them telling us this heartbreaking news. Ncl said that they would cover $300 travel reimbursement (which couldn’t change our flights home) but it did cover the cost to Rome... but with 2300+ passengers booking flights, they all were booked within an hour- and WiFi was shutting down! It was a —it show! We were then given a letter (an official one with a stamp and signature because the first one did not have it which didn’t make it official) staying we can use ship as hotel until Friday at noon. We stayed on the ship until 3 am Friday and got the first bus to the airport. (No organization for the shuttles for ncl and people were running over the older passengers to get on the bus). We then realized all the times we had to taxi from the terminal to Barcelona main square took all are Euros! We didn’t spend frivolously at all- but Barcelona but transportation was expensive ! Still never saw the cruise director :/ Front of house organization was nowhere. Guest service answers were “we will make an announcement when we know”... guess what- I got a spa appointment on the first day in Barcelona and that person told me we would be in Barcelona for at least two nights SO the crew knew more that what we were told! 1) yes grateful we were in Barcelona and not at Sea... but the information upfront would have been appreciated 2) refund was already issued but the alcohol package was still fully charged (including those gratuities) 3) WHEN IN SPAIN PORT IF TOU GET ALCOHOL NCL CHARGES AN EXTRA TAX- even on top of alcohol package. 4) a few staff members that did make end of trip tolerable under circumstances: Aditya in indigo dining he impressed us from night 1 and we requested his table daily. Sandra ACD who was more of the face of the Pearl than the actual CD 5) will we cruise again on NCL? We will stay domestic and use our 50% off and see if the service and entertainment is better. After that cruise we will decide if we will ever do NCL again. Read Less
