Norwegian Cruise Line

With service to some of the most prestigious vacation destinations in the western hemisphere, the Norwegian Pearl provides all passengers with a luxurious experience that is packed with high-class recreational activities and amenities. The ship was redesigned in 2017 as part of the Norwegian Cruise Line Edge program and features a new assortment of 5-star restaurants, designer boutique stores, world-class entertainment, and relaxing staterooms that are clad in contemporary decor and furnishings. This impressive ship is recognized by the strings of colorful pearls that adorn the front hull and by its imposing presence in the waters that it sails. It measures in at 965 feet in length and is considered to be a mid-size cruise liner within the fleet. Whether you're staying in an inside stateroom or a multi-room penthouse with an ocean view up in The Haven, you will be treated as an honored guest and will receive special amenities such as 24-hour room service. Hop aboard this impressive ship and set sail for ports in the Bahamas, Canada & New England, the Caribbean, or the Panama Canal and see why this cruise liner is considered to be a ship of dreams.

Onboard Experience


Proudly offering an impressive line-up of 16 complimentary and Specialty Dining restaurants as well as 15 unique bars, the hardest part of your daily meal planning is choosing where to go to eat. The restaurants aboard Norwegian Pearl cater to special diets of just about every kind, so just let the maître d' know of your preferences before you sit down to your meal. On board the ship, you will find two main restaurants that doll out traditional dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are in the mood for something more indulgent and worldly, you can dine at À la carte establishments such as Sushi, which specializes in fine sushi rolls and Japanese noodle dishes; La Cucina Italian Restaurant, which offers homestyle Italian food within a cozy setting; or Atrium Café & Bar with The Bake Shop Treats, which specializes in treats made of sugar, spice, and everything nice!


The entertainment line-up on the Norwegian Pearl is just as varied as the exotic destinations you will travel to. Whether you are in the mood for enjoying a hand-rolled cigar inside the smoking lounge or would like to sit back and watch a live performance inside the Stardust Theater, this cruise ship does not disappoint. The Stardust Theater is a large auditorium-style event venue that is used for games and recreation during the day and live performances at night. Kick-back in one of the over-sized plush lounge chairs and be ready for the entertainment to begin. Legends in Concert pays tribute to some of the music icons that have made their mark on the entertainment scene in the last 30 years. You will get to watch some of your favorite songs performed live by celebrity look-alikes. Pure Variety is another amazing performance act where the audience gets to decide who wins the prize at the end of the night. It is a talent contest show where you will get to see many different acts before voting.

Fitness & Recreation

Keep up with your fitness routine while on vacation, thanks to the top-notch exercise equipment provided to you on Norwegian Pearl. Body Waves Fitness Center is an all-encompassing work out facility where working out and beautiful views collide. At Body Waves Fitness Center, you can work out to your heart's content while enjoying views of the ocean from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the whole facility. Inside Body Waves Fitness Center, you will find all of the workout equipment you need for an intense exercise session. The fitness center also offers personal trainers and exercise classes for anyone interested. On the ship, you will also find a sports complex that caters to those who want to play games with other passengers as well as hot tubs and swimming pools for those who are looking for some low-impact recreation.


Cater to your inner need for some good old-fashioned pampering and make it a point to spend the afternoon at Mandara Spa & Salon located on Deck 12 of the Norwegian Pearl. Mandara Spa & Salon offers beauty treatments and body services that will make you feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Nothing completes an exotic vacation to the tropics like a deep tissue massage! Choose from a variety of spa services such as a bamboo massage, an aroma stone massage, a manicure or pedicure, nutritional consulting, a seaweed massage, body positioning analysis, or even Botox treatments. You can also head off to the Spa Thermal Suite for some detoxification therapies. Use the steam room to get rid of aches and pains, the thermal loungers to relax your whole body, or the hot tubs to improve circulation and relax aching muscles.


For those who need to partake in a little retail therapy, look no further than the Galleria offered aboard the Norwegian Pearl. You will find boutique and department stores that offer everything from the toothpaste you forgot to pack to the Michael Kors handbag you have been eyeing for months. The best part about shopping aboard the ship is that you will never have to pay taxes or duties on the merchandise you buy. Shop at fine retailers such as Colombian Emeralds International, which offers fine gemstones and diamonds of all shapes and sizes; The Tides, which offers an assortment of different gifts and souvenirs; and Tradewinds, which is your one-stop duty-free store for fine liquors, jewelry, handbags, accessories, wine, beauty essentials, clothes, and more. 


Kids receive the royal treatment when they travel with their parents aboard the Norwegian Pearl. A cruise offers a rare opportunity for your kids to see some of the most beautiful tropical lands around, and the ship provides them with plenty to do in between port stops. Splash Academy is an enriching experience for kids and offers them a place to play with games and toys as well as work on craft projects with other kids aboard the ship. The Kid's Pool is located on the top deck near the main pool and provides toddlers with somewhere safe to splash and play. The Video Arcade is another treasured venue among kids and teens and is a place where they can escape into fantasy lands, racetracks, and war zones for a while. Metro Center appeals to the teenage crowd and features graffiti art walls, a concessions area, TVs, lounge chairs, and music that teens actually like to listen to.


If you are feeling lucky, head over to the rich and colorful Pearl Club Casino and try your hand at winning a huge jackpot. This full-service casino is open day and night for your enjoyment. It is adorned in bright regal furnishings and offers hundreds of games to choose from. Whether you enjoy sitting at the slot machines or playing an intense game of Texas Hold 'Em, you will find all of your favorites at the ship's casino. Pearl Club Casino is part of the Casinos at Sea Rewards Program so you can earn points and use them toward perks and extras at the casino and throughout the rest of the ship.
