The Norwegian Pearl is a Jewel-class cruise ship, and sister ship to the Norwegian Jewel. With 15 decks, ten restaurants, and more than a dozen bars and lounges, she’s 965 feet packed full of exciting recreation and entertainment opportunities, giving passengers the ultimate freedom to create their own memorable holidays.
Your customization opportunities start with booking your cruise accommodation, with over a dozen different stateroom options, including interior and window-view rooms, staterooms with private balconies, and family-sized rooms, plus several rooms designed for accessibility for people with disabilities. You can expand your options even further with interconnected staterooms that are perfect for large groups and families. Cruise in style in a mini-suite or one of the Pearl’s gorgeously-appointed full-size suites, or live in the lap of luxury in The Haven, with its incredible villas, with up to three bedrooms, access to a private courtyard, and butler and concierge service.
The Norwegian Pearl packs a lot of travelling into her annual itinerary, with cruises to Alaska, the Caribbean, the Pacific Coastal region, the Bahamas, and the Panama Canal on the schedule. She cruises the Alaskan coast in the spring and autumn, with itineraries of up to ten days, and cruises of three to five days on the US Pacific coast. As winter nears the Pearl heads for warmer climes, with ten-day voyages to the Panama Canal, and cruises of up to three weeks in the Bahamas and the Caribbean.
There are so many different places to eat on the Norwegian Pearl, you’ll need a cruise of at least a couple of weeks to eat your way through them all, but you’ll be glad you did. Each of the ten bars and lounges has its own menu of appetizers and aperitifs, there’s a diner serving tasty fast food 24-hours a day, and there is the huge buffet spread—available almost 24 hours a day—that’s traditional for most cruise ships these days. Don’t forget room service, with snacks and light meals delivered to your door, as well as a pizza-delivery service.
For more formal dining you have even more options, from the traditional fixed dining room menu in the Indigo room and the gorgeous Summer Palace, and a number of specialty restaurants with fabulous menu options. Enjoy a succulent steak at Cagney’s, or a variety of roasted meats at the Moderno Brazilian steakhouse; try Italian fare at La Cucina, and French dishes at Le Bistro. The Lotus Garden has expertly prepared sushi, and the entertaining teppanyaki bar.
It’s virtually impossible to get bored on the Norwegian Pearl—there’s an enormous range of amenities, activities, and entertainment venues, there’s definitely something for everyone, kids and teens included. First-run movie screenings, the gigantic 20-foot TV screen with Wii gaming system in the ship’s two-storey atrium, video game arcade and the internet café, dance classes, game-show style activities, bowling—and that’s just the start.
It’s easy to stay active while on the Pearl, with her well-equipped fitness centre, plus a climbing wall and outdoor jogging track, and sports courts; when you’re in the mood for relaxing there’s the Mandara Spa, with luxurious massage and beauty treatments. Evenings are even more exciting, with the music, dancing, and variety acts at the gorgeous Stardust Theatre, the glamorous Pearl Club Casino, and live music, karaoke, and other entertainment at each of the ship’s bars.
