Norwegian Pearl February 6-13
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We did not see the Vegas-style shows, but Second City and Sharkbait were great. There was also a performer that played the piano and sang at Bar City that was very entertaining. We fully expected to pay for extras, but did not find any crew members to be overly pushy.
We did the whale-watching and beach excursion in Samana, and really enjoyed it. Just be prepared to run the local vendor gauntlet at the beach. We were not able to visit the baths in Tortola, because we were not able to swim ashore. However, we did snorkle at a nearby island with Patouche tours and really enjoyed. One caution - watch out for sea urchins. My sister got nailed and experienced a bit of pain for several days. Really appreciated the help provided by the ship's doctor for that. Just did some major shopping in St. Thomas. Great Stirrup Cay was very nice. We had number 8 for the tenders and had no problem getting a lounger. The tenders were actually quite large, so they were able to move people to the island fairly quickly. Food on the barbecue buffet was better than we have had on other islands.
We elected to carry our own luggage off the ship, so disembarking was very easy. I did like the later time frame, because we could enjoy a leisurely breakfast before departing. Less
