Great ship and crew… except for the fog delay on disembarkation

Loved visiting all of the Bahamas ports. Bimini was a beautiful beach stop. Did the Jeep tour in Nassau and had a fun time. Food was great. Cruise director Jamie is a hoot! Loved the 70’s disco party. Ship is smaller than the mega ships but she’s beautiful and well maintained. We had the best service in the main dining room and a wonderful lunch at Izumi. Highly recommend Izumi and I don’t eat ...

We chose a cruise to Cozumel/Key West and shortly after booking the itinerary was changed. We ended up going to Key west/Nassau/Coco Cay. We did not want to go to Nassau as we had been there so many times before. The change was made months ago, and had nothing to do with recent virus concerns. We tried to get them to let us change to another cruise or to give us an onboard credit but our requests ...

This was our 5th cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas and we were very disappointed. The MDR experience was terrible. The quality of the food was not good and serving roasted turkey any night is just plain cheap food and on our 5 night cruise it was offered twice. The menu choices have decreased and the items are mostly just plain cheap food. What everyone has always looked forward to was LOBSTER ...

Just got back from a 5 day cruise. I have to say I will never go with this cruise line again. The food was absolutely horrible and service was beyond bad. We had a "penthouse" if you want to call it this that was to have a butler. When we got to our room we noticed we needed converters for our phones and computers. No where on the site does it say we needed to bring converters. There was 1 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

With this being my first cruise and nothing to compare it to, my review will be completely unbiased. We had a hull balcony room on deck 8, front of ship. You can feel alot here, book mid ship if you can. Our room was a good size, I felt, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. The food was average to less than average. We did not eat at any specialty restaurants. The Vanietian at the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This cruise happened to fall into dates we would be in Florida for conference. Wanted to have a small honeymoon combined with birthday celebration. Sadly, it wasn't as we expected. Problems with the cruise - our luggage was delivered to the wrong room - the tv remote control was missing. Even though they didn't believe us when we called to notify them of this and it took a couple ...

My wife and i felt like a mini-vacation for some R&R was needed so a cruise popped into our head as a good idea-- we wanted something short so as not to miss too much work, that was not so expensive, and that was different (through we'd been on cruises occasionally in the past). This cruise perfectly fit the bill! This cruise was supposed to include a stop at Great Stirrup Cay (GSC), NCL's ...

Great Time on the NCL Pearl

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This was our 7th cruise (DIsney, Celebrity, Holland, Royal Caribbean), but our first time with NCL. We are a married couple in our late 50s. We enjoyed the more casual, laid - back, freestyle experience. The Pearl, although not as "elegant" as some other ships, still is in good shape, clean and modern. The Pearl staff was very friendly and attentive, especially our cabin attendant, Daniella. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was my first cruise. When it was booked I never would have booked it if I would have been informed that there was a private charter going on this cruise. The people in the charter were rude, obnoxious, and used a lot of foul language in front of everyone. This normally wouldn't bother me because I can ignore people like that but there were children present and children repeat things. They ...

My sister in law and brother treated my husband and myself to this cruise, we were. Ot told about the trailer park boys and there groupies being in the ship. They had multiple restraints and lounges closed for private events. We were not able to go to the island due to weather they said, we went to Freeport which was awful they stayed from three oclock to eight o'clock. We lost out on our ...
