We chose this cruise because we wanted to spend time with our children and their spouses. We all work very hard and live in the same city but thought it was time to spend liesure time together. This cruise was a terrible disappointment as far as service and what we paid for. NCL never again! The entertainment was never available if you didnt "book a reservation " the first day. jThis was ...

Santiago (Valparaiso) to San Francisco on the NCL Sun We chose this cruise because it left and arrived at 2 cities of which we are very fond. We had planned a day flight north over the Andes but it was the wrong time of the year, dry and dusty pollution covering the gorgeous mountains. A small disappointment, nothing can spoil your time in this city when you can eat beef of that quality and ...

Be aware, what NCL advertises is not what you get on your cruise with the Pearl. Some rather surprising mess-ups included: 1. Tendering back to the ship in Astoria was a 2 hour wait, as only 4 boats were in service to transport the ~2,000 passengers waiting in line to return to the vessel. Later the captain would announce the "distance" from the ship to the shore was "out of their control", but ...

First off, I have to mention how disappointed we were when NCL cancelled the advertised port city of San Francisco shortly after we made our final payment and could no longer cancel. That port was the whole reason we chose this cruise. They substituted Seattle instead, which meant that we ended up in Seattle twice within a couple of days, since we also flew into Seattle. This was a really big deal ...

My husband and I needed a break so decided to fly to Vancouver and cruise back down the coast on the Norwegian Sun. This was out 5th cruise with Norwegian. The embarkation process was efficient with no problems. The ship is well laid-out but it showing signs of wear. It was spotlessly clean for which I was grateful. Having said that, the continuing problem was the smell of "sewage" in public ...

We cruised on the NCL Jewel from Vancouver to Los Angeles with stops in Astoria, Oregon and San Francisco and it was a TERRIFIC experience from beginning to end! We chose NCL because we had sailed with them before and because of the itinerary. Our cabin was just as expected- we had a mini-suite and really enjoyed the private balcony. Our Cabin Steward, Barrington was excellent! He anticipated our ...

My husband and I took our first cruise in about 20 years on the Pacific Coastal Cruise, 9/ 20-25/2014). Since we were from the Los Angeles Area, and the cruise disembarked in Los Angeles, it was almost embarrassing at first to answer the question "Where are you sailing to?" But we learned right away not to say Los Angeles, but that it was a Pacific Coastal Cruise. Embarkation was a breeze, in that ...

My very first cruise was a 5 day repositioning from Vancouver to Los Angeles, with my sister who has been on several cruises. My impressions of the Norwegian Pearl: It was bright and airy. Our room (with a balcony) was bright, and clean. I found it very comfortable; there was enough room to relax and the balcony was a real plus. The food was pretty decent with only one exception: La Cucina, the ...

In the last 24 months we have cruised on the Sun, Star and Pearl. In my opinion, the Pearl is the best, closely followed by the Sun and the Star is last. Embarkation: I arrived at the dock too early! People were still disembarking so the embarkation process was not open. At 11 AM the embarkation process began and we were on the Pearl by 11:15. Cabin: We chose 9008, an enclosed balcony, as our ...

The Pearl is a good sized ship with enough lounges and other seating areas in around that it never felt too crowded. We were really glad that we purchased the Thermal Spa package as they only sell 84 of them and we felt with the unlimited times you could go, it was well worth the $119 for the five days. There never were more than 6 other people there anytime we went. With the variety of the heated ...
