We recently cruised for 11 days to 6 different islands in the Southern Carribean on the Norwegian Pearl. Everything from beginning to end was absolutely wonderful! It was a repositioning cruise starting in Tampa, FL and ending in NYC! We went to the Cayman Islands, Aruba, Bonaire, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, St. Thomas and NYC. We took port exercusions to all these beautiful islands, each being a little different from each other making it special. We ended with a tour of NYC...always a fun time! On the ship we were treated like royalty. Every sincle crew person made us feel special. Loved our cabin steward who always would smile and ask us about our day, did an excellent job taking care of our cabin. We LOVED the beautiful Summer Palace dining room and spent every single dinner there. Our waiter Rocky was absolutely the best. We became good friends and he was an excellent waiter knowing what kind of beverages we liked and making our cruise extra special! The food on the ship was excellent. the french onion soup was the best Ive ever tasted. We were so pleased to see Kit Kat Guadalupe, Guest Services Director, and Pedro, Cruise Director who we had met on another NCL Cruise. They were warm and welcoming. We loved the shows on the ship (except for the juggler...didnt care for him...more of a childrens act), especially the Legends in Concert which included the singers and dancers on the ship...excellent! We enjoyed the dances in the Spinnaker Lounge nightly as well as the game shows (so much fun, I participated in one) and the trivia games. This was our 6th NCL cruise...already booked on another one...love NCL!!!

Cabin Review


Cabin IC

Great cabin, very clean, our cabin steward was the best..His name was Felix and he was always there to clean up, give us new towels. We never returned from an excursion or anywhere on the ship to a dirty room. Felix was always on top of things! Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Enjoyed the open air trolley seeing gorgeous houses, flowers, stopped at the beach, very nice!

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

A great tour of the island, beautiful views from ontop the mountain of the ocean and harbor. Just spectacular!

St. Thomas

Spent several hours swimming at MAGANS BAY...we simply loved the clean, beautiful beach and crystal clear turquoise waters...even spotted a sting ray. We loved it!
