  1. Anyone else excited about this cruise. Awesome itinerary.
  2. We are seriously considering both the fall Boston to Quebec or Boston r/trip Canada itinerary on either the GEM (2021) or the PEARL (2022). Have already sailed on the GEM a few years back (before the most recent refurb). Both convenient for us, since we live in MA, with Boston our home port. Of course, if we pick the Boston-Quebec cruise, we will have a one-way flight. Aware these are Jewel class ships and pretty similiar. Any thoughts on which ship/itinerary sounds best? We have an aft club-balcony suite in our sights, either way. Like the mid-sized ships...the Breakaway and beyond are too big for us! Of course, planning has to include what happens with Covid-19. Hoping by late 2021 and certainly 2022, we are good to go.
  3. My mother and I are considering a NCL Pearl cruise in early 2022. We need some separation and are considering a 2-bedroom deluxe family suite (not Haven). I would be in the "kids" bedroom. I'm mid-50's with minor hip/back issues that need good sleep support. What are the beds like?
  4. For lack of something better to do, here is a behind the scenes tour on the Pearl about 8 years ago. You could still go on the bridge then. Was a good tour. https://photos.app.goo.gl/P5Ja8L4PrfQQfErW2
  5. Hello everyone! I will be on board the ship from Aug 1st to 8th 2021 !
  6. Hi, I'm booked on the Pearl, with cabins 4565 and 4567. On the deck plan for this ship, these cabins appear in the middle of the ship and not connected to any hallways. It has to be a mistake on the deck plan. Does anyone know how those cabins are accessed? Thanks!
  7. So today we were going to be setting sail out of Miami on the Pearl for a 12 day cruise ending up in NYC. Never in my wildest imagination did I think that the reason we might not be going is this situation. Most if not all of my family is in the Northeast and I get daily updates from them plus watch Cuomo's daily broadcast. I wish good health to everyone. What we decided to do is just do one thing each day to represent what we would have been doing if on the cruise. Today it was shrimp cocktail for lunch as that is what we always have in Cagney's on embarkation day. Then to make ourselves feel somewhat better we heaved a sigh of relief at 3:30 pm that we didn't have to attend muster drill LOL Tomorrow as it would have been a sea day perhaps we will be stargazing early in the dawn hours. Etc. Etc.
  8. Has anyone got their cruise credit from the cancelled Pearl cruise 5 July 2019 that applied it to the recently cancelled Getaway 28 Jun 2020 get a new credit? Thanks
  9. Hi just booked pearl and price for BF was 25 more per person than BA. CAS person tried to explain a few things and I went with BF. Looking for experience here pertaining to two. I did say I wanted to be ensure not a cabin with solid metal type enclosure in very front of ship on port side. I did get explanation of more private sides to cabin vs. more open between balconies. I went with more private in area on charts seems in middle of ship floor 10.
  10. I noticed this on marinetraffic website when i look at the Norwegian Pearl: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:370294/mmsi:309653000/imo:9342281/vessel:NORWEGIAN_PEARL
  11. Anyone have pearl dailies? Spec for Bahamas but any of them I guess? Baby/guppy dailies?i want to know the activities for babies under 3. so I saw they have a seperate Baby pool, so does that mean swim diapers allowed? Bc it’s seperate than the other pools!
  12. Hello everyone, We are booked on the Pearl for Jan. 2021. Tell me everything about the Pearl. Bobbie
  13. Hello everyone. We are going on our first NCL cruise aboard the Pearl out of NYC, sailing in a Haven suite. What time would be a good time to arrive at port for check-in? How early would our cabin be ready? The door to our cabin is facing the door to the Haven courtyard. Should I be concerned with noise throughout the day? I have an 11 years old twins. Would it be acceptable for them to use the Haven pool, or would other passengers have an issue with them? They are quiet and respectful. Figured we would use that pool on Sea Days, and the main pool on port days. Is the sun deck accessible all day long, or do they shut down at night? Thanking you in advance for your feedback 🙂
  14. the buffet is no longer self serve. They now have crew serving everyone. We also got a call that the Haven VIP party with the Captain tonight has been cancelled.
  15. Hello - We just booked this for a late May vacation. I think this is a new itinerary for the Pearl (but been done on plenty others.) It could be I'm not using the search function right - was hoping to see some dailies for the trip assuming that there's not that much variation even if it is a different ship. Also, looking through the excursions - nothing even listed for the last 2 days: Portland and Newport. Isn't that odd for only 90 days out?
  16. Hi everyone...the Norwegian Pearl shows that the Penthouse Suite can sleep three. There is my wife and I, along with our 13 year old son. In the pictures of the suite, I don't see a third bed. Is it a rollaway that they bring in? Thanks in advance, Dave
  17. Trying to decide between Pearl Island and Balmoral Island with lunch excursion in Nassau on NCL Bliss for March 22, 2020. We want to do the excursion that will have less kids. Anyone been on both of these excursions? Which one would seem to have less kids? Pearl Island has less of a beach area than Balmoral Island if that would help! I see a Carnival ship has the Balmoral Island excursion. Royal Caribbean has the Pearl Island excursion. We want to make the right decision. We like a quiet peaceful spot to spend a few hours.
  18. Hi all! Newbie to NCL here. Cruising in June on the Pearl. We have the specialty dining perk and want to dine at Teppanyaki one night. Just based on some photos I have seen, it looks like (at least to me) that on the Pearl there are about 4 tables of 8 in Teppanyaki. Is this right from your guys' past experience? My question is for each time slot listed in the reservation section, is there only one table that will be seated? I figure that since part of the experience is the 'show' of the chefs cooking in front of you and singing as they go, etc., that there might only be one 'active' chef at a time putting on a show (I could be totally wrong thought, so please let me know if that's your experience). If we are a group of 6 (3 rooms of 2), and each room booked a reservation for 6pm, will we automatically be seated at the same table since there is only one table being seated at that time? or should we head to the restaurant upon boarding so they can make a special note to seat us together? We would have had just one of our rooms book all 6 of us, but at least when i went to book this morning, there were only 2 or 4 people options. Thanks in advance for any info you have!
  19. We are sailing on the Pearl soon, we have never sailed NCl and am wondering if they carry Diet Tonic. Any other info on the Pearl would be great. Thanks
  20. I booked an Aft Penthouse (category SF) on Pearl for Canada & NE and was curious about boarding in NYC. Do we check in in the same area as the Haven? That is what I understand, but I want to be sure. I have seen reviews where this was not the case. Thanks!
  21. I am planning a New England cruise on the Pearl. Does any one have info on this ship such as what nights the shows are scheduled or good Bars to try.
  22. Sorry, I know we should ask questions in the Ports of Call section, but I’m not seeing anything specific to the NCL excursions there. We can’t make up our mind on which excursion to choose in the locks because they all look appealing. They have a Railroad dome car, the Grand Tour, and Panama Canal by Ferry. Which one is best? I’d like to book today, but we don’t know which to choose.
  23. Last month we sailed our 49th and 50th cruises. In recent years, most of our cruises have been on Princess, but we are Platinum on Carnival & Royal Caribbean and have also sailed with Celebrity, Disney and Norwegian. Our most recent Norwegian cruises were in 2008 (Panama Canal, then Alaska on the Pearl.) We hated "your style" dining (or whatever they called it then) as we always had to get a pager then order mediocre food in the MDR. We ended up paying for the surcharge restaurants and swore off NCL for the last dozen years. We sailed Princess four times last year and are getting bored with their entertainment. We are taking our granddaughters on the Regal Princess for spring break, but don't have any other cruises booked. We both play MyVegas and NCL is offering a number of options (over our anniversary) for reward points that interest us. Itinerary isn't important (Caribbean is Caribbean...) but entertainment IS important to us. I know Dawn is the oldest of the three and we have sailed the Pearl a few times, so the ship itself causes us to lean toward the Escape. But what about entertainment? Can anyone tell me about the production shows? Any significant difference with the resident show bands on those ships? Nightclubs? Comedy?
  24. Has anyone stayed in either of these cabins? I have searched cabin compilation and couldn't find anything (might be how I am searching). Wondering about pros/cons, especially noise from the Bliss lounge? Thanks
  25. I cant seem to find any specific info on the sizes of these 2 rooms either on this board or on NCL's site. It only gives a range of the room and balcony combined. My question is the deck on 9 looks larger than the deck on 10, based on pictures and videos I've watched on YouTube. Does anyone know that since Deck 10's balcony is smaller, that the room itself may in fact be larger? I'm sure we will enjoy either room, but just curious if there is a size diff in the 2 rooms themselves. TIF, Tallyfins
