I was on a 1-night cruise on the Pearl Sept 20th. I went with my mom and sister and two of my mom's friends. I stayed the night in Seattle at my sister's house. It was my other's sister's birthday, so we went out to dinner the night before, and make a fun weekend with the cruise.

We went down to Pier 66 the next morning about 10:30. We had to park our car across the street at the Bell St. Pier parking garage and walk over to the pier. There is a Sky-bridge over to the pier. By the time we got over there, it was probably around 11:00, as we stopped to take pictures. We went right in and checked in. Was easily and fast. We got our room cards and went to find my mom's friends. We probably only waited 10 to 15 minutes before we boarded. We got numbers that they called when we could board.

The Pearl is beautiful. It is colorful! We looked around for a few minutes and then went to the Garden Cafe buffet for lunch. We ended up sitting outside the Great Outdoor Cafe area for lunch and got a few things to eat there also. It was great weather to be sitting outside eating. At about 1:45, our rooms were ready, so we found our cabin. We upgraded to a balcony and we were glad we did. The balcony was wonderful and the room was bigger than the inside cabin we originally had. We had three in our cabin. It was just fine with three for the 1-night cruise. I would not even mine having three in a cabin for a little longer cruise. The third bed was in the sofa. We also had a fourth bed in our room,I believe which we did not use. It was in the ceiling it looked like. I also loved the shower. It was the biggest shower I have had on a cruise. The toilet was a little cramped though.

We upgraded to a balcony and we were glad we did. The balcony was wonderful and the room was bigger than the inside cabin we originally had. We had three in our cabin. It was just fine with three for the 1-night cruise. I would not even mine having three in a cabin for a little longer cruise. The third bed was in the sofa. We also had a fourth bed in our room,I believe which we did not use. It was in the ceiling it looked like. I also loved the shower. It was the biggest shower I have had on a cruise. The toilet was a little cramped though. the room did not have as much storage as I would have liked. It had a medium sized closet. There was four shelves and three drawers. No drawers were in the bedside tables. The safe was the biggest I have ever had on a cruise.The TV was not very big.
