We are loyal NCL customers and loved a repeat of The Alaskan Experience. The Pearl is an older ship, but in a good refurbished state. Our cabin, with balcony on the 11th floor was adequate for three of us, and very clean. We purchased ... Read more

This is the 2nd cruise I have been on, and there was a lot of hype about doing the Norwegian Haven option (e.g. butler, private courtyard with mini swimming pool, priority for embarkation, private restaurant for breakfast/lunch, etc.). We ... Read more
