Back from the Pearl
Hi Everyone,
Just to let you know that we had an absolutely lovely week on the Norwegian Pearl and got back yesterday.

The food was great and plentiful. We really couldn't manage more than two meals a day (and I love to eat) because we were just too full. Our room stewards couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. They had great personalities and kept us in ice and our room all tidy.

We enjoyed the latitudes parties, the entertainment and shore excursions. There were some March Breakers but they seemed to be having a good time as we all were.

If anyone has any questions and I can help, I'd be happy to.

Welcome back, Judy! I'm sure you'd rather be on board, though. Did you book another while on board? We bought the advance deposit, which I thought was a great deal. $250and they gave you $100 on board credit. Now, all I have to do is decide which ship and where to go.

I really did enjoy the Epic and think I'd like to do a transatlantic on her. But....airfare might just be the dagger.

Hope you came home to a little warmer weather and no snow.

Welcome back, Judy, and thanks for your report. Sounds like you had a ball.

Hi All,
Thanks for your comments. You bet we bought a future cruise credit and am actually in the process of booking for next year back on the Pearl. In the meantime, I have a date with the Epic this summer. You're right that the airfares are terribly expensive -- but -- it's a bucket list type of thing that I've always wanted to do.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Epic. We did all the shows, too. I highly recommend the Murder Mystery, we did it on a sea day in the afternoon. It was in the Spiegel Tent and they served a lunch while you had to guess who done it. Blue Man was fantastic and so were Legends. Second City was pretty funny, too, they did adlibs from audience suggestions. I LOVED the water slides, even overcame my fear of heights and climbed to all 3 of them, more than once. We just had a balcony, on deck 9, I believe. I know you'll have a wonderful time on her.

I thought the bathroom layout worked very well. I know it's a little strange and they should have made the doors a little more opaque, but it is a good concept.

We didn't do many of the specialty restaurants, I think there were 8, but we did do the noodle bar and the sushi bar. The dining room food was great!

Thanks Penny for the information about the Epic. I'm reading everything that everyone has written about her. I was wondering about those water slides. I hope I get up the nerve.
