Recommended Posts

Did you happen to have pictures of the Diningroom Menus. :) Would love to see them.

 

Some final thoughts...

The ship

NCL Pearl

The ship looked to be in good shape except for some of the furniture in spinnaker and Bliss. (the beds and funky chairs) They were well worn. Other then that it looked good. Our room however had carpet that was pretty stained up and there was no varnish on the railings. The glass on the railing looked like it had varnish dripped on and dried my several sports and it was just plain yucky looking. The room was clean though but our steward did find a shirt probably under the bed that wasn't ours. We could see how it could be missed as it looked strangely like the carpet. I never really did get the hang of where everything was and never seen the casino till we went looking for it.

LIked the 7 story ( I believe) atrium but I thought the ship looked like it needed a bit of care. This was in 2011 so I'm sure it has or is going to get dry docked. BUt, it was very clean as the others

Beautiful ship. Kind of beige but that is the clientele. An older crowd. In very good condition.

So if I had to rate them

No did not take food pics or dining room menus. I will say the food didn't Look all that fancy. The roasted chicken breast was good though.

The room looked really nice. Kind of hard to get around when the couch was pulled out and bunk down. The bathroom was small. I know my husband would have liked it. Kudos on the shower. It has sliding doors and plenty of room. There was also plenty of storage space under the sink.

What room category was this?

Sorry I don't know what category it was.

the room would have had plenty of room had we not put 4 people in a room. But, we did fine. We are a big family and are used to being crowded! :D

Thank you for your response. My son, his girlfriend and I have a balcony stateroom for Sept. I'm wondering if it will be big enough for 3 adults. I guess it will have to be!

sometimes mini suites are only a little bit more than balcony rooms. In your case i think it would be worth it to get the bit of extra space and curtain divider.

 

In a balcony on the pearl, the 3rd and 4th bed tends to block the door to the balcony. The mini suite sofa bed also turns into a double bed which might be more comfortable for the 3rd person, rather than the twin.

So the mini suite sofa does not block the balcony door in a mini suite?

There's definitely more space to go around, where with a balcony, you practically have to crawl over the bed to get out onto the balcony.
