We chose this cruise because we wanted to see Alaska and Glacier Bay. We booked late and didn't have all the cruise lines available. Norwegian and Holland America were available, I heard HA was mostly older clientele. I don't have much ... Read more

We had a wonderful cruise! My wife and I are seniors on our first cruise. The ship was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the itinerary was just what we wanted. The stateroom was small, but what can you expect onboard a ... Read more

The location and size of the ship where correct for my family given I have two boys ages 13 and 16. We wanted small enough to not be overwhelmed but largest enough to give them enough to do while onboard. The other issues I found was a ... Read more

We are frequent NCL cruisers. This was my first time cruising since I've been in a wheelchair, and when we booked last October, we were advised there were no more ADA accessible rooms left, but we would be given on with a ... Read more

This was our 22nd cruise (15th with NCL). We chose this cruise as our son and DIL live in Seattle and it was an opportunity to take both sons and DILs on a trip with us. We have sailed this itinerary on the Pearl before twice. ... Read more

This was a good cruise. How could that spectacular scenery fail to impress? The ship was clean and recently refitted, the food was often quite good and occasionally great. All in all, a win. I'd say over half of their staff was really ... Read more

Wow, where do I begin?? I have so many amazing things to say, so this will be quite lengthy. My husband and I just took our very first cruise, aboard the Norwegian Pearl to Alaska from August 6-13, 2017. We are in our early 30's. We ... Read more

We were not thrilled about this cruise to Alaska. The port stops were too short, not enough time left to visit the town after an excursion. Because, at the end o the cruise, there was an incident in the warehouse the disembarkation was ... Read more

Took this trip with 10 other people, including one 12 year old. Embarkation and Disembarkation went well but was slightly confusing as there appeared to be both cruisers coming and going in the same area in Seattle especially upon arriving ... Read more

We chose this cruise to do an Adult only cruise with 3 other couples. We planned this cruise about 2 years ago and wanted to on a cruise without the kids to enjoy some adult time. We wanted to go to place that we all have never been ... Read more

The past two cruises I've been on sailed to sunny destinations such as Mexico, Jamaica, and Haiti. This one was very different. I mean this in a good way. The scenery was absolutely stunning. It's very hot down here in Southern California, ... Read more

Embarkation began at about 11:30 am so I would not recommend checking in before 11:00. We checked in at about 11:00 and got onto the ship about 45 minutes later. There are a few free activities but many of them try to sell you something ... Read more

For our 20th anniversary, we planned a "Go Big or Just Stay Home" vacation. It may have been a little risky to "go big" on a cruise when we'd never taken one before, but the crew of the Pearl is a "go big" ... Read more

This cruise was just what we needed to relax and re-charge. As first time cruisers, we weren't sure what to expect. We flew into Seattle the Friday before our cruise and did some sightseeing there. We boarded the ship on Sunday. ... Read more

My family and I chose this cruise because of the ship making 4 stops instead of 3 on a 7 day cruise (less days at sea), the roundtrip out of Seattle is easier for booking flights versus the North to South routes, as well as cruising ... Read more

We liked the itinerary. We liked that the ship had a bowling alley and a rock wall. The food was sub par for the price we paid. We were disappointed that we bid on 2 bigger rooms and did not get them. The reason was that there were no ... Read more
