Pearl Mist Cruise Review by 4palmsprings

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the USA

We heard it was a nice trip through the Great Lakes with lots of history, so we choose Pearl Seas Cruises after checking another lines out, cause even though it was more expensive, it looked to be a better boat with a good itinerary.

First let me start off by saying from the book you received about the trip, it stated one day on the lakes with no stops, which was false advertising cause there was 2 days.

Two of stops that were included on this trip, Sauté St Marie and Little Current there was nothing to see there and we spent several hours there.

There was no one to give you the history of each stop, yes there was a little page that was put in your room each. Ignite giving you a little detail, but not much and the women they had on board to give lectures, didn't lecture about the area, in fact of the lectures was about the Titanic, which I thought was not appropriate.

One day we spent more time going thru customs and waiting in line then actually at the Ford Musuem.

Nigeria Falls was beautiful, but again you felt like you were rushed through it and did not get to see any of the area around there, which looked beautiful.

The food was good and the wait staff and room steward was wonderful!

It was also suggested that you tip $20 a day, which I though was high, considering the price we paid for the cruise. I tipped individually and gave a little as a whole.
