Other things you should know about Norwegian Pearl


NCL Norwegian Pearl is recommended for

The ship is great for first-time cruisers and active travelers of all ages. Repeaters and middle-income travelers who like entertainment and recreational variety of a large ship – but not as large as a megaliner would also enjoy on Norwegian Pearl. People who like sports and music, especially jazz and country would feel at home. The ship has lots of activities for kids, and people vacationing with their children would have a lot of fun on the ship.


“Resort casual” style dressing in line with the freestyle philosophy of NCL

Dining times

You don’t have to follow fixed dining times or sit at fixed tables, again in line with the freestyle philosophy


Gratuities are optional, but there is a service charge of $12 per person per day which is charged to your on-board account
