  3. Norwegian Pearl
We chose this cruise (day at sea-Norwegian private island- day at sea) because it’s close to our home and the prices were reasonable especially for spring break! The cruise was hosting Trailer Park Boys and their fan base which was honestly fine except that some areas were closed off for private events etc. the only real issue we had was that we had to move rooms (9505 to 8619) at 1am the second night of the cruise because TPB was hosting a rock concert two floors below us until 2 in the morning. Poor planning on Norwegian’s part in my opinion....it was so loud it hurt our ears two floors up. Most events in the Stardust theater are done by like 10 so this was definitely weird....however they were quick to help and get us moved! As far as the ship goes this is probably my favorite Norwegian ship! We enjoyed the specialty dining (Cagneys and Japanese) very much! We also enjoyed the Irish pub and the grouping of bars at the middle of the ship! Nothing ever felt crowded and the service was impeccable. I’ve only ever been on the Norwegian open bar cruises and honestly this one had a whole different vibe. Even though we still had the bar “perk” the bartenders were attentive and really took pride in their work! The pools were also great and never really overcrowded. In conclusion I want to say that this was probably the smoothest cruise I’ve ever been on....sounds weird I know, but it really felt like the the captain took great care to avoid bad weather and rough seas. In fact, we did not make port at stirrup cay because they felt the seas were too rough and they still took us the Freeport! All in all just a good time....we will definitely book again!!!

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IC 8619
Super quiet and just close enough to elevators/Irish pub. Bathroom was pretty big for an inside room and the shower could even fit two people :)
