  1. Looking at a Panama Canal cruise on the Pearl. I see it’s an older ship. Does it feel old or is it nice? Is this a good ship to do the PC?
  2. I just want to see if anyone got their promised refund from Norwegian Pearl? We were on the cruise that got interrupted due to a mechanical problem, forcing us to disembark in Barcelona and fly to Rome by ourselves July 3. Norwegian promised everyone aboard 50% cash refund and 50% future credit based on the original fare paid. We got captain's letter to that effect, plus it was widely reported in media at the time. Now, my wife and I paid a total of $7037.22 to Norwegian for that cruise. According to our invoice, that included $3718.00 guest fair, $503.22 port fees and taxes and $377.00 prepaid service charge. A simple calculation shows that 50% of the guest fare is $1859.00 Few days after we left the ship and flew to Rome we got three separate refunds from NCL on my credit card: $377.00 $100.00 $151.00 I am not sure exactly what they are, but my guess is - it is refund of prepaid service charge and half of port fees and taxes. We were also given cash before we left the ship for unused shore excursions, which have nothing to do with the original fare. Now, where is the rest of the money? It is August 12 now. It has been almost 6 weeks since we left the boat. I called Norwegian on July 23, and spent 2 hours on hold only to be eventually told that they "do not know anything about that" and "their supervisor will call me back". It has been 3 weeks now, and no one called me back. Is anyone else in the same situation? This is a lot of money, are they trying to hush it up and go back on their word now? I attached a copy of captains letter we were given to this post, in case everyone wants to see it. PS - I am also curious if people who were supposed to depart from Civitavecchia got their promised 100% cash and 100% future cruise credit refunds?
  3. anyone done this excursion? first time ive seen it offered.
  4. We will be sailing on the Pearl 10 day panama canal from Miami. Was curious if anyone has a copy of the daily papers they leave in the room. Thank you.
  5. Jun 2019 - NCL Pearl - Northern European Tour - Part 1 Departing Amsterdam Every now and again you browse the NCL website and wonder why on earth you didn't spot this itinerary before; how could we have missed it and at such a bargain "sail away price". It could have something to do with the terrible design of the website or it could be that some of the reposition/one off cruises don't get released to the UK/EU markets at the same time as the US. Ever since we sailed on the Favolosa from Copenhagen we have always looked for any excuse to return to Norway and see more. Geiranger has always been a must see so when this cruise on the Pearl suddenly caught our attention it was an absolute must. One slight headache was the fact we booked this as a 'sail away' price whilst NCL were offering the old "all inclusive "offer; they then changed this completely the following week. To summarise, same base price but now drinks are included and five premium dining choices for £99pp + grats, but way cheaper! Day 1 Fly to Amsterdam We flew Flybe airline early on the morning of the cruise from Manchester. Its a short hop across (1hr) and on a normal day should give you the easy option of jumping on the train to Amsterdam Central and walking to the Cruise Terminal. A full on storm meant we had to sit on the tarmac at Manchester for about an hour waiting for a slot as Schipol had become backed up with traffic due to the weather. On landing in Amsterdam the same storm had decided to deluge the entire city in a months worth of rain so we took a taxi (A gullwing model X Tesla no less). Embarkation is smooth and the storm we are reliably informed has passed (though not the gusty winds)
  6. Just curious, we have a cruise booked on the Pearl next year, but not been on it in years. What work was done in the last refresh? Just cosmetic or any significant changes?
  7. We are currently in Rome boarding the Pearl today, British airways managed to loose our buggy between aircraft door and arrival in Rome. Help! no baby shops appear open before our transfer to ship. Is there any change the ship will hand old strollers? Is it likely concierge can assist?
  8. Looking to book the Pearl for the 11 day panama canal cruise, because we liked the itinerary & price. But I have been reading horrible reviews else where about this ship. That's besides the recent breaking down, and the recent norovirus outbreak. Anyone care to share there experience, good or bad. Hoping to find hear good reviews here before committing to booking. Thank you.
  9. We are..and we are soo excited about it! This will be our first (of many I hope) festivals. at sea.
  10. I just received a robocall, and have confirmed this with my NCL cruise consultant that the 13 day Greek Isles & Italy from Rome has been cancelled due to unforeseen mechanical problems. Way to give us a few days notice NCL.
  11. Has anyone heard when the Pearl will return to service following it's mechanical problems in Barcelona and subsequent cancellation of the July 5th cruise?
  12. hey all we first time cruisers. are their bath towels and a hairdryer provided in the room? also does anyone know re towels for the pool TIA
  13. Hello everyone, Getting ready to sail on my first Transatlantic cruise on the Pearl soon. I’ve sailed on the Pearl twice when it first came out over 10 years ago. I’ve enjoyed the spa on other ships that would be well worth the price of $239 for a spa pass for the 13 days, but I’m not sure how the spa on the Pearl compares and if it’s worth it. Any guidance would be appreciated. Also, haven’t seen much talk on here about the Pearl, so any recommendations or recent experiences would be appreciated as well! Thank you!
  14. I'm booked on the Star (9 nights) going to ABC Islands and Grand Cayman - $1748 for ocean view sail away for solo. I see the Pearl (11 nights) is going to A&C plus Panama Canal - $2000 for inside sail away for solo. Any thoughts on these two itineraries and ships? I've been on the Star prior to refurbishment however it was a port intensive sailing. As a side note...wishing a successful outcome to all those currently on and booked for the Pearl that is cancelled. Thank you
  15. Which ship would you pick? Only 3 or 4 days to Bahamas and can't decide
  16. Was anyone sick with the norovirus on your cruise? I was on the transatlantic sailing following that cruise and the ship was a mess! Many passengers and crew were sick and I was wondering if it started with our trip.
  17. We just booked through pre-sale the Keeping the Blues Alive cruise on the Pearl February 18, 2020. We are HUGE Buddy Guy fans and he is one of the headliners this year. We have been wanting to do this cruise for a couple of years now. Has anyone sailed this festival cruise or one similar?
  18. We're excited to have booked our first cruise in a few years after battling some health issues. Already 'mentally packing ' my snorkelling gear, our sunscreen and swim suits! We hope to 'meet' up with some other cruisers before sailaway- so please join in our pre-party! Brian and Donna Ontario, Canada
  19. Have friends who are sailing on the Pride of America this Saturday. They want to do Pearl Harbor when they disembark on the 15th but purchased round-trip transfers through NCL. NCL will not refund the return trip to the airport because it is four days before sailing and in full penalty phase. They were planning to book the excursion through the ship so now they are looking at going to Pearl Harbor after they land and get to the ship. It sails at 7 p.m. Would it be possible for them to grab a taxi/Uber after they check in and drop off their bags?
  20. Can anyone who has knowledge of the Bose System that is in the cabins, tell me what chord we need to connect our IPhone or is it Bluetooth? Thx
  21. Cruising from port in Civitavecchia . Pearl arrives at 6AM on disembarkation. What will be the latest time to disembark? We want to get off as late as possible to avoid lines.
  22. Travelling on Pearl 28th July, i’ve Been struggling to find any info on pearl in the boards. Can anyone gibe give any hints/tips? What’s good on the ship and what isn’t so great? We will be travelling with a 3 year old and a 15 month old, is there a playroom for under 2’s like on Epic?
  23. Howdy All, Considering a cruise on the Pearl and had some questions on the Haven area. I see the ship has a Haven Courtyard but don't see any mention of other Haven amenities like on other ships. - Does this have a private Haven bar/lounge like the other ships? - Is there a private Haven restaurant or do they offer breakfast/lunch in Cagney's (like on Jade, etc) - Is it worth it to book Haven 2 Bed Family Penthouse vs. Standard 2 Bed Family Penthouse? Appreciate all the help as always!
  24. I have tried to find reviews of the thermal spa on Norwegien Pearl, but have only found a couple. The most recent that I read from 12/18 was very disappointing, sounded like the hot tub and other amenities were cold. Anyone out there with a recent experience?
