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 atmosphere and all of the complementary restaurants that were included. We had the most wonderful time. Our favorite restaurant were the Summer Palace and Indigo. Excellent choices of food and delicious. The 12th floor buffet was our least favorite but it was quick. The nightly entertainment was super and the host, (also aka Pedro-the voice from the ceiling) was great. We thoroughly enjoyed every show but our favorite were the two shows of the Mo-town group. The showcase of the talented crew was great to see their other abilities. Promote them! We did the Rome tour upon leaving the ship and stayed in Rome an additional four days. All the staff was very attentive and helpful when we needed guidance in getting to a destination on the ship. The "fish" carpet in the stateroom hallways was extremely helpful to determine the front and rear of the ship. But where are these "fish" on the rest of the ship? It would be helpful if there were some painted on the walls in a few strategic locations. We really would have appreciated that. You must have some talented crew who can paint or just some decals. Not sure when our next cruise will be but we will definitely be checking out Norwegian Cruise Lines. Thank you to all for a memorable vacation.
Compact stateroom 9644 but sure glad that we had a balcony. The ladies in 9642 spoiled our balcony outings as they were smoking on the balcony which is suppose to be not allowed.
