This cruise was a last moment decision to get some sun in the middle of January Weather in Minnesota. This was our 18th cruise on NCL and our 2nd time taking the Pearl to sea. We are currently Platinum Plus members on NCL's Latitudes Reward system. Tampa & the Barrymore Hotel: We flew into Tampa Wednesday morning, from Minnesota. We requested a taxi in the baggage claim area of the Tampa ...

This was our 12th cruise with NCL and we had a great time. We spent a couple of days in Tampa ahead of our cruise and were able to check out the riverwalk, downtown and Ibor City. The ship was very clean and well maintained. Our room steward, Irwin, did a fabulous job and the room was always made up and ready for us. We breezed through embarkation and were on the ship in no time with drink in ...

This was our third cruise on the Pearl, and our longest cruise, so far! We loved it! Met some very friendly people, both in CC, and aboard ship. The itinerary was great, since we visited five different islands. We opted for the onboard credit instead of the food or drink packages, and that was fine with us! The regular restaurants have improved their menus, and as Platinum members, we ...

We just returned from a cruise on the Norwegian Pearl. The cruise was 10 days on relaxation and great food. We got the package that included the specialty dining restaurants and were delighted we did. The food in each of these was excellent. We had a balcony stateroom and found it to be roomy and very well laid out. The crew as tremendous and the ship was great for relaxing. If you want a ...

We just returned from our 10 Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise onboard the Norwegian Pearl. This was our 14th cruise with NCL and our 5th on the Pearl. We have to say that we are loyal to Freestyle cruising and have always enjoyed ourselves immensely. The time during the cruise seems to pass by so fast compared to the time waiting for our next adventure. This cruise was no exception. As usual, we had ...

We had another very nice Caribbean Cruise on the NCL Pearl in February. This was about a year from our last cruise on the same ship and even in the same cabin. This was another “free” cruise however this time courtesy of NCL’s Casino at Sea program. The costs for our “free cruise” were as follows for a BA class balcony/room 9606; Guest fare: $185.00 Tax/Port Fees: $119.02 Insurance: ...

My husband and I had never cruised before and chose Norwegian due to its "Freestyle" dining option. We travel light and did not want to be faced with the added luggage and hassle of having to pack dressy clothes. We also wanted the flexibility of dining when and where we wished. We were on the Norwegian Pearl in and inside stateroom #10613. This room was slightly aft but close enough to the ...

Just back from a 7 night music cruise. As this cruise was a charter I cannot comment on the entertainment but this review is the ship. Yes this is a tired ship, the staterooms could be freshened up, but they are clean and well laid out. We had an inside cabin as we spent very little time in it, preferring to go to our shows, and found the beds dry comfortable and the air con kept the rooms cool. ...

Had a fabulous time on the Pearl. Food was exceptional. Had a great selection of menu items in the main dining rooms and the specialty restaurants were excellent. Took advantage of the Freestyle Choice program by choosing the Ultimate Beverage Package and found that it was a great value. The ship was very clean and the staff/crew were very friendly and helpful. Entertainment was excellent. The ...

Just home from the Pearl yesterday and thought I'd write a quick review while details are still fresh in my head. A little about us . . . This particular cruise was my senior mom and myself, booked through Casino at Seas (CAS). I’ve been on 17 plus cruises in order as (Carnival, NCL, RC, Celebrity and now back to NCL, with this being our 3rd NCL CAS cruise within the last 12 months). This was ...
