Great opportunity to tour all the ports & countries Oct. 1 to Oct 14, 2019

We chose this cruise on the ship,Norwegian Pearl, because of the itinerary/ports. Felt the cruise price was fair, although all the shore excursions did add up because there was so many ports. Loved the casual ...

Great Mediterranean itinerary

My husband and I sailed on the Pearl in early October. The check-in process was fine. We were glad to get on board after the long flight from Dallas/Newark. Our OV room had quite a bit storage space with 2 sets ...

Great Staff !!

We have sailed on all of NCL's Jewel class ships and love them all. They are large enough that there is plenty to do, yet small enough that it has a "neighborhood" feel. We are Platinum Plus as well as Ruby in the ...

Probably won't be sailing Norwegian again.

We booked our Norweigian cruise through AAA. Our travel agent was great. AAA does not book directly through Norwegian, they have to go through Pleasant Holidays. We had to sign a waiver to not hold AAA responsible ...

No thanks

We took this cruise following my daughter’s wedding in Positano. We were a group of 10, and thought the ports of call looked interesting—and many were. My husband and I love to cruise, and are pretty faithful ...

Norwegian Pearl has the best....itinerary.

We picked this cruise for the itinerary, which was amazing. The ship was clean and our mini suite had enough storage for 4 of us. The cabin attendant was great! The food was not. O’Sheehan’s was our preferred ...

OK cruise but choose your cabin location carefully

The overall cruise was ok. This was my first extended cruise so not much to compare to. I'll start with negatives. Our cabin was located under the kid's play area and they actually had a mini soccer field set up ...

Cruising is slipping in value for money.

This was our first cruise in Europe as we are from Australia. The organisation getting on the ship at Rome was very well organised and very quick compared to other cruises we have been on. The rooms were very ...

Great cruise but what was all that shaking?

Did we have a broken ship? What was all that shuddering and shaking in a circular movement? This was unrelenting for the entire cruise. At night it was like someone constantly shaking you to wake you. The ...

A Great Cruise...if you don't need to sleep for 11 days!

This was our first cruise. We would have rated the cruise as a 4+ out of f5 but for one major issue. More on that later. I would say the cabin itself (ocean view) was what we expected: Unobstructed view, clean, ...
