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

My husband and I went with a group of people for an owners conference for our business. We were able to book a penthouse suite on the very front of the ship, which we were very excited about for viewing the glaciers and whales right from ... 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

I had been on the same cruise twice before but wanted to share the beauty of Alaska with 9 other family members...eight of which had never cruised before. The weather, the wildlife, the ship and the crew did not let us down. It was a ... 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

Our Alaska cruise was a wonderful way for us to have a family vacation and see the wonders of our 49th state. We chose the Pearl because we liked the itinerary and have traveled happily with Norwegian before. The Pearl's two bedroom ... 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

We chose this cruise because it started and ended at Seattle, and included Glacier Bay. The ship itself seemed to be in fine condition, was clean and nicely decorated, and easy to get around. The cruising was extremly smooth and we could ... Read more

We just got back from our Alaskan cruise on the Pearl (July 9-16, 2017), and had an awesome time! I’ll try to stay somewhat orderly here by going with categories. CHECK-IN: We had set up our check-in time for 11:30-12:00. ... Read more

Wanted to take my dad on an Alaskan cruise. My husband and I have been cruising since 2003. We took this exact cruise, exact ship to the exact port in 2007. At the time, NCL was my favorite as they were the first ones to introduce ... Read more

Everything went as planned. We spent time off the ship in every port, including Seattle which was our departure point. Out excursions were great, especially the whale watching/Mendenhall Glacier excursion. Cabins were cleaned and ... Read more

This was our very first cruise so we have nothing to compare it to, but we were pleased. We had an inside cabin which worked out fine. It was dark and easier to sleep. Cagney's Steakhouse was so delicious. O'Sheehans had a great breakfast ... Read more

FOOD & DINING Not a thing to complain about, especially from a guy who dislikes cooking. I personally prefer healthier options and trust that they had a ton of them. We also dined at 3 specialty restaurants per our tradition and ... Read more

My husband and I travel quite a bit, so we have a lot to compare this cruise to. We did the Alaska cruise for my in-laws 50th anniversary. We chose mid-ship mini-suite with a balcony for our cabins, and were happy we did, because we ... Read more
