  3. Norwegian Pearl
First and probably the last time on a Norwegian Cruise. The cabin was so small for the price we paid! We had a hard time walking past the bed to our balcony. We could not fit our one piece of luggage under the bed nor in the closet so we had to take up Valuable floor space with it. I had to call the first day to have our bathroom cleaned as you could write your name in the dust. Really made you wonder what else was not cleaned. The food was like a school cafeteria. The desserts were like the ones you find at cheap China buffets. No lobster night! No special chocolate night. Nothing special. Cancelled excursions were the norm, with not much advance notice. The excursion to Butchart gardens cost $149. for a bus ride to the gardens so you can sit not on a chair or a bench but on the wet grass to view the fireworks. Not impressed with Norwegian!

First time to Alaska on the Pearl
