Cabin: Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

Overall this was a great cruise. This was our second cruise on the Pearl and our 8th cruise with NCL. The itinerary was great with the canal being the highlight and Columbia being a close second. All the crew were outstanding. The ship was always very clean and well maintained.

The food is mostly very blan with not enough spicing (we forgot to bring our spices with us this time and we knew what to expect). The flounder is the best choice in the dining rooms (it is spiced very nicely). The fish is very good every where. The burgers were always excellent. The LeBistro serves excellent food, wish we could have eaten there every day. The food presentation and temperature was almost always perfect in the dining rooms.

Great entertainment, totally loved the hypnotist shows, Nadeen was outstanding. The 3 Diva's and Legends shows were excellent. The drinks were very good. The embarkation in San Francisco was very good, much better than Miami. We did not play in the casino but walking through the casino did show they did a great job of reducing second hand smoke.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

Cabin OB

3 person cabin (fold down bunk bed) made the room a little more crowded than normal. The large picture window allowed a good light on each side of the window.

Port Reviews

Puerto Vallarta

Very nice port. Just walked around and went to Walmart.

Cabo San Lucas

Love Cabo Wabo

Los Angeles

Wished they could have supplied small vans for us to see Beverly Hills. Loved Venice.
