Norwegian Pearl Cruise Review by Tigerlily70
- Sail Date: August 2012
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Oceanview Picture Window
I do think the food is very mediocre. There is no reason to have bad salmon when sailing in Alaskan waters. I am from Seattle so I know good salmon. Most of the foods were rather tasteless or overcooked. Now, this was in the open dining rooms. I don't know about the specialty dining rooms. None the less, the food definitely was my least pleasurable part of the cruise. I did like the free style cruising. We could eat any time any place. I would have like breakfast available all day. Breakfast roomservice was limited. Would have like eggs.
Some odd port times. Ketchikan: arrived at 6am and back to the ship by noon?
Victoria: arrived 6pm and back by midnight. Rather limiting. I would have preferred fewer ports and more time in each.
