Our bucket list cruise did turn out to be a "Cruise of a lifetime", but, not in the way we hoped. Arrived 3 days early in Amsterdam and had a wonderful time exploring that city. Embarkation was a breeze and we were delighted with the cabin (11134), initially. Evenings were interrupted by folks playing basketball dspite the sign stating activities were to end at 5 PM. So easy to fix, just put the balls away! Dinner the first evening in the Summer Palace proved to be on par with an Applebee's. Formality of service proved to be nonexistent, quality of food was mediocre. Exploration of other options proved more fruitful, specifically, Indigo and Cagney's with formally trained servers. The entertainment, overall, was quite good. There wa an acrobat male and female team that were incredible. The ships crew of singers and dancers were on par with other cruises. Their "Legends" show was outstanding. Activities were spotty, poorly timed and some never happened. Service was subpar compared to other cruise experiences. Having numerous mishaps it appears that communication is their biggest pitfall. All mishaps (but one) were rectified, but, only after having to be (begrudgingly) a squeaky wheel. This was a repositioning cruise that came up short as one of the ships engines experienced problems that were not rectified. Our cruise ended 2 ports early and missed another enroute. This was my first Norwegian cruise and will be my last. Poor communication, training and management failing to manage seems to be the primary problem. Yes, a cruise of a lifetime and one that will never be forgotten. Read Less

As this time, probably the whole world knows about the disaster European trip provided by the Norwegian Pearl . However, I wanted to point that I consider that all the blame should be taken by the Norwegian Pearl management and/or corporate team for the way that they manage all the situation and information about the defective engine on board during this time. The did not share any information, and when they did it was inaccurate and no in timely manner. It was really hard for us as a client to make a decision since we really were getting the right information at the moment correct time. We have the impression that every piece of information was managed to avoid any confrontation with the already unhappy clients onboard. I worked at the hospitality business, I understand pretty well that at times you would need to deal with contingencies and technical issues, but the way that Customer Service team as well as the management team deal with these problems make the whole difference for the guests in house. I am very disappointment with the decision made at times for the management and how they deal with the information; then on top of that NCL corporate, decided to compensated the next cruise 100 % for their trip and the 100 % for the future cruise reservations. Meanwhile, our compensation was 50 % for the current trip and 50 % after the fact that we suffered all the inconveniences and having the bad service delivery by NCL during this trip. I would be more agree to a 50 % for the current trip and the 100 % for the future cruise as a token of their appreciation of all the troubles that we have to go thru during this experience. Please feel free to reach me out if you need more information. Today , I have trying to reach Guest Relations team from Norwegian and I have been on hold for more than an hour. I will try another day, but I have not seen any compensation so far for Norwegian Pearl bad experience. I hope that they doo Read Less

We chose this cruise for just one reason, the itinerary. The ship in general is very mediocre. The food in the main dining room, and buffet were on par with my company's cafeteria. The only difference was that this buffet had a few more choices. The hamburgers were precooked, tasteless and dry. You could get a better one at Burger King. On other ships we have cruised on we were tired of lobster by about the third day. We were on this ship for 11 days and could not buy a lobster in even the specialty restaurants. The cabin was nice, but we had to pay a substantial upgrade to get a room similar to what was standard on other ships we have sailed on. On a positive note the entertainment was good, and the entire staff was polite at all times. Under normal circumstances I would give this ship a C rating. Due to the mechanical problems that left us stranded in Barcelona, and forced us to miss three of the scheduled ports I will give it and F. I will be very surprised if NCL will make me whole on the 36,000 extra Frequent Flier miles I had to use in order to change my flight departing from Barcelona instead of Rome because the ship could not make it there.
