Age 20s

Alaska was our destination of choice. The cruise line offered an array of activities and site enjoyable to our party or 17. We loved the staff, the ship's director Vincent, and the drinks, of course. We enjoyed the entertainment and the food. Our family and friends were just as thrilled as us. We enjoyed the sites, however, we would have enjoyed more time at Ketchikan and perhaps another port to ...

Overall the Cruise was excellent value and my partner realised a life time ambition to visit Alaska. Although we did see a number of whales in their natural habitat, that was our main goal, this was generally at a distance, particularly on the whale watching excursion, and overall we were very disappointed. Food and service overall was excellent, staff very friendly and ...

We really enjoyed our cruise to Alaska and the ship was awesome. It was recently refurbished so everything was nice and clean. I would recommend the ship to anyone wanting to see parts of Alaska without being on a huge ship. I really wanted to go on the Bliss but was glad to be on the Pearl due to price being cheaper. The pro's far outweigh the cons on this ship. The major things that ...

We took a cruise to Alaska 25 years ago on another cruise line and now my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with our son, daughter in law to be, our daughter and her boyfriend on the Norwegian Pearl to Alaska. This was such an unbelievable cruise where everything went perfect from getting on the ship to getting off the ship. The weather was perfect and the staff on the cruise ship ...

Alaska is beautiful but a few complaints about the cruise

Age 30s

I have a dairy allergy and this cruiseline only accommodates if you pre-order your food the day before and you must eat at the summer palace only for every meal. This really isn’t fair to the people you are with. Isn’t the point of being on a cruise to be able to get variety and try all the restaurants? I tried eating at other places and told the waiters I had a dairy allergy and they wouldn’t let ...

I chose this cruise primarily to visit Glacier Bay while there are still glaciers to see. I have cruised with Norwegian before on this class of ship, and enjoy the many venues for music, entertainment, and places to quietly catch up on reading...…. This cruise was remarkable for the quality of the classical music provided by the "Four String Trio". What a delight it was to hear Mozart, ...

We sailed on the Pearl this September because we enjoyed our trip to Alaska last year for 10 days on the Jewel. The itenary was similar although the ports were slightly different. Overall this was an amazing trip to Alaska. Glacier Bay was stunning. We had beautiful sunny weather every day which is very unusual for September. We went to Icy Strait Point, Ketchikan, Skagway and Victoria. ...

This size of ship is perfect for Alaska cruises. It doesn't have many pools or a water park but you don't really need it in a Alaska cruise either as the weather would be too cool for swimming anyway. One of my gripe was the boarding process at Seattle. Once you're checked in with the desk agent, you go to the waiting area. Everybody was so confused there because they have no idea when's ...

I choose this cruise because it went out of Seattle. While the cruise was great still room for improvement, hot tubs where just luke warm and a few other on board activities other then trivia would be nice. Other wise was great.I would still use NCL again. Summer palace needs to improve service , while Indigo resturant along with buffet was really good. Shore excursions where a little on ...

This was our first cruise, Alaska was on my husband's bucket list. Our entire experience from embarkation to disembarkation was easy and efficient. We enjoyed the variety of dining options and the entertainment in the bar areas as well as the shows. The excursions were very organized, easy to access and well worth the money. We cannot say enough about our ship steward, he was attentive and ...
