Took this trip with 10 other people, including one 12 year old. Embarkation and Disembarkation went well but was slightly confusing as there appeared to be both cruisers coming and going in the same area in Seattle especially upon arriving ... Read more

Very disappointed in many ways. First, the ship is dirty-very dirty. The windows in restaurants and main floors are not washed..saw the same load of bird poop on deck 5 all week. LaCucina's windows were disgusting. In the observation ... Read more

Our Alaskan cruise was a great trip for our family of 12 of all ages. 8 of us also went on the land tour to Denali in advance of the cruise. There was enough to do on the ship for the littlest (ages 5 and 9), the teens/young adults, and ... Read more

The past two cruises I've been on sailed to sunny destinations such as Mexico, Jamaica, and Haiti. This one was very different. I mean this in a good way. The scenery was absolutely stunning. It's very hot down here in Southern California, ... Read more

We were not thrilled about this cruise to Alaska. The port stops were too short, with little time left to visit the town after an excursion. Excursions were very expensive, and were less than what we expected. The Staff were ... Read more

Ship: The Ship was pretty good. A few oddities like having to change floors to get to certain places. For example the kids club is on the opposite side of the casino which they cant walk through. One dining room is on 5 but not ... Read more

Embarkation began at about 11:30 am so I would not recommend checking in before 11:00. We checked in at about 11:00 and got onto the ship about 45 minutes later. There are a few free activities but many of them try to sell you something ... Read more

For our 20th anniversary, we planned a "Go Big or Just Stay Home" vacation. It may have been a little risky to "go big" on a cruise when we'd never taken one before, but the crew of the Pearl is a "go big" ... Read more

I had been on the same cruise twice before but wanted to share the beauty of Alaska with 9 other family members...eight of which had never cruised before. The weather, the wildlife, the ship and the crew did not let us down. It was a ... Read more

This cruise was just what we needed to relax and re-charge. As first time cruisers, we weren't sure what to expect. We flew into Seattle the Friday before our cruise and did some sightseeing there. We boarded the ship on Sunday. ... Read more

My family and I chose this cruise because of the ship making 4 stops instead of 3 on a 7 day cruise (less days at sea), the roundtrip out of Seattle is easier for booking flights versus the North to South routes, as well as cruising ... Read more

We booked this cruise as a family cruise with my daughter, husband and grand children. My main complaint is that this company nickel and dimes you on everything. For example, we had to pay $26+ every night for the pleasure of having ... Read more

Nickle and dime to death. Can't even bring a bottle of water. Can't fill up your own water bottles in the cafeteria. Can't get soda anywhere but the bar. Watered down, overpriced drinks. Sub-par entertainment that is mostly just a ... Read more

We liked the itinerary. We liked that the ship had a bowling alley and a rock wall. The food was sub par for the price we paid. We were disappointed that we bid on 2 bigger rooms and did not get them. The reason was that there were no ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it started and ended at Seattle, and included Glacier Bay. The ship itself seemed to be in fine condition, was clean and nicely decorated, and easy to get around. The cruising was extremly smooth and we could ... Read more

We just got back from our Alaskan cruise on the Pearl (July 9-16, 2017), and had an awesome time! I’ll try to stay somewhat orderly here by going with categories. CHECK-IN: We had set up our check-in time for 11:30-12:00. ... Read more
