Good cruise

Wanted to see the Panama Canal Cruise was good. Had a few hiccups with getting off the ship. We arrived late in one port , and rather than let passengers off by excursion time, they let everybody off at once. People got on the busses for the incorrect excursion time and had to be asked to get off so the correct people could get on. Could have been avoided with a little planning. Food ...

The 14 day journey cruise on the Glory was overall memorable. Embarkation was great as soon as we got to the port and went thru security we were on the ship. We had some great stops, Montego Bay Jamaica, Aruba, Cartagena Columbia, Puerto Limon Costa Rica, the Panama canal and cozumel. the crew was great. Depending on where your room was on the ship there was a constant movement of the ship. I ...

I wanted to go through the Panama Canal The food was not up to the level I have been use to it was just so so They ran out of items before we reached out destination which is unacceptable The officers were not very friendly they were not around much and when they were very sour faced I did not see the captain accept at picture time I have been on other cruise lines where officers and the ...

Always wanted to do a cruise through the Panama Canal, from gulf side to Pacific ocean. Lots of ports for excursions. Was a great experience. Spent couple days in New Orleans before boarding ship for cruise. Also spent a couple of days in Seattle before flying home. Checked off three items on our bucket list with this cruise. Over three hundred passengers from Australia. Several ...

I have taken cruises before and I have cruised on several different cruise lines. This was my first repositioning cruise and I hope to answer some of the questions I had about this type of cruise. We chose this trip because of the departure port and the itinerary. New Orleans Embarkation: We live a few hours from New Orleans and took the train down the day before. Our assigned check-in ...

We did this cruise because of the ports of call. Left from new orleans and went to seattle. The ship is very nice and clean, room also very good. The crew was always happy and friendly. Food was better than expected. We missed two ports of call and were not told was not told why, this is one reason we chose this trip was for the ports of call. Smoking was really bad on the ship as they have a ...

Been cruising for over 30 years. This was the first time on NCL and we took this cruise because of the "ports of call". First, two ports were cancelled and one was added before sailing. many things went wrong as soon as we got underway. -Plumbing problems (2X) in the cabin, no cold water -Small light fell out of the ceiling -Pre-order of meals screwed up 3X. Request was for no ...

My life goal is to visit at least half of the countries of the world (98). When I saw this cruise advertised, it had four countries in Central American that I had never been to, Honduras, Belize, Nicaragua and Guatemala. Early in 2018 (I booked in August), prior to sailing we were told that Honduras was taken off the itinerary, then a few weeks later they decided to bypass Guatemala. In its ...

Amazing re-positioning cruise from New Orleans to Seattle via Panama Canal

I chose this cruise because of the multiple ports offered many of which I had not visited. The Norwegian Pearl is a beautiful well maintained ship which is staffed by the most amazing crew ever. I have cruised multiple times and have enjoyed most all of the staff on all my cruises, but the Pearl's staff seemed to genuinely enjoy their work and their coworkers. They were all friendly and ...

Cruise offered was back to back through Panama Canal and on to Alaska. Two ports were cancelled (were not told why) so assume that is why we arrived in LA at 12 midnight and could not get off ship until the following morning after 7 am - as ship was leaving at 2 pm in afternoon - there was no time to travel into the city and return in time to board ship. The customs took so long that we finally ...
