We arrived a day early and stayed at the Barrymore in Tampa. Other than the great bottle of wine from the bar, our meal at the restaurant we have nothing good to say about this old, run down hotel. We went on the Dawn last January 2018 and thought of doing the same time this year, just chose a different ship. We like the smaller ones so we stayed in the jewel class, choosing the eastern Caribbean ...

My girlfriend and I went on a Wine, Dine and Music cruise. She talked me into a room with a balcony. I thought sure, get a nice room with a view. Had never had one before, my folks - yes, but not me. Well, we got there and it was so tiny we had no place to put the two cases of water and could not get the bags underneath the bed the room was so cramped. We had to squeeze through where the foot ...

Our recent (April 6, 2015) cruise on NCL was not a pleasant experience. I will lay out the pros and cons of this cruise. Pros 3 out of 5 of the islands we visited were nice. St Kitts, St Thomas and Antigua were nice stops and offered some very pretty beaches and interesting historical sites. The bathroom of the mini suite that we stayed in was very generous and had nice ...

Right from the booking process, NCL disappointed us. This was my 4th cruise with NCL. I had been very happy I booked directly with them.. My reservation was bungled -- I was promised a number of promotions including an onboard credit. After failing to receive cruise documents or an email, I phoned NCL. ttey had inserted the wrong address and sent cruise documents to a travel agency I used 4 years ...

I am not a seasoned cruiser, and this was a great oppty for me to get away with my entire family, parents, siblings, and nieces and nephews. We had great family time, and for that the trip was great. However I may never again take another cruise. They call this "freestyle cruising?", well nothing about this trip is free. You cannot move two inches on the ship without someone trying to sell you ...

After a long flight from London Heathrow (9 1/2 hours) we finally arrived in Miami - a short transfer took us to the Marriott Hotel in Miami which was very nice, clean and included breakfast the folllowing morning. The following day we were transferred to the Pearl - our first impressions were great - we could not fault the cleanliness of the ship nor the balcony staterooms which were ample for 2 ...

We took a family 1 week Eastern Catribbean trip on the Pearl leaving Miami on 1/29/10. If you're looking for a cruise is excessive drinking and smoking, this is the ship for you. This was our first and probably last time on an NCL ship and we saw more smoking (in non smoking areas like next to the children's slide) and more excessive drinking (alcohol is continually being pushed 24 hrs a day) than ...

This is my 6th cruise, and second time with NCL. I had said after my last vacation with NCL that I never would book them again. But they had a really good price and itinerary, and the reviews of the ship sounded good, so my girlfriend and I took a chance. I'd booked a balcony suite, I'd only stayed in oceanview or interior before. But when I pre-registered, I noticed they had upgraded us to a ...

My wife and I did quite a bit of research and ended up thinking we would get the most for our money and different ports of call when we chose NCL Pearl Eastern Caribbean Itinerary. Boy were we in for a rude awakening. We had not been on cruises for a few years but were very surprised at how much cruising has changed. Some things good but mostly bad and now we are still trying to figure out ...

Before I begin, I want to mention that I am a Latitudes Gold Member with one more cruise to complete before reaching the Platinum tier with NCL. I have sailed on most of the NCL fleet so I obviously like NCL, but the NCL Pearl was my least favorite. Upon arrival at the port they had no record of our VIP status (Latitudes) with NCL so we joined the line to get on the ship. Embarkation was ...
