Hi All,Need some advice, I can either have cabins on deck 8 of NCL Pearl right at the very front or right at the very back (as I require connecting cabins and these are the only ones avilable) Last time i had cabins at the rear there was some vibration. Anyone been on the Pearl and had any issues with these cabins?
Just back from my 2nd Aft facing suite, I vote for Aft, our friend had a forward facing Owners Suite and the wind was just too much on the forward balcony (though he had a hull balcony on the side) but at the same time (well almost same time I had to walk the length of the ship) my aft facing was protected from the wind and we could enjoy it.
Yes we felt some vibration but with azipods on the Gem not as much as with a screw on the Star.
You also have the light issue on forward balcony's at night as not to interfere with the bridge. Then again on aft we had some small garbage fall from the Great Outdoors on to our Deck 10 balcony but it was not an issue.
Personal choice it comes down too, DW now wants an Owners Suite now that she saw it...
