NCL has a jewel in there midst. The Pearl is Perfect. The staff is outstanding. We were treated like kings and queens on our cruise. The only unfortunate episode occurred on a tender to the private island... A young passenger decided that he did not like his breakfast that morning and proceeded to lose it on the tender, other than that it was the BEST!!! cruise I have been on. I am already looking into taking another cruise next year with NCL. Hopefully on the Pearl again, because of the staff, cleanliness, and food. The ship is and was perfect.
