  3. Norwegian Pearl
This cruise was a wonderful way to see European cities, Azores and Bermuda. Also it was fun to not have to fly back from Europe to the U.S. The ship is older but in great shape and the crew and all staff seemed to be very experienced and friendly. The cruise line excursions were well done and had a nice range of prices. Freestyle dinning worked out well. The ship also had a crepe making station and an ice cream shop along with soft serve so you could get a variety of ice cream with your regular dessert. There were multiple areas serving breakfast buffets so never had to wait for custom made eggs. For some reason it was really hard to get smoked salmon, but would appear from time to time. We really appreciated the daily availability of yogurt and fresh cut fruit. Keeping all this food fresh for a long cruise was amazing. Also I must say the crew seemed obsessed with the cleanliness of the food areas, it was greatly appreciated. We also seem to have really lucked out on weather, though not in Norwegians control, when it comes to cruises you would prefer to be lucky. Thanks to Norwegian for the great cruise and, we really appreciated the Platinum level Latitude perks. We will definitely look into NCL cruises first.

Excellent Transatlantic itinerary

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IE
Small but we knew that, we sleep very well on cruise ships, especially on sea days and this cruise was no different. Excellent room staff and we liked the added usb ports in the cabin.
