We invite you to experience the wonders of getting aboard the Norwegian Pearl. Her chic bowling alley, 16 delicious dining options, 15 bars and lounges, dazzling casino, tranquil spa, and spacious Garden Villas are just a few things that make this Jewel Class cruise ship a destination of her own.
Norwegian Pearl is a fantastically fun ship from its imaginative decor (blown-up photos of wild animals or foreign landmarks in stairwells, jewel-tone carpeting, a Victorian/steam
punk-style vibe in the nightclub ) to the variety of onboard activities.
One of the best features of this charter is that NCL has “Freestyle Dining”. Most cruise lines have assigned tables and assigned times to eat for every cabin, but NCL allows their passengers to eat where and when they want. It has always been very difficult for our past charters to adopt our “open seating” policies, because their kitchen and wait staff are not used to this concept (causing long lines on some ships).
This is what NCL does and they do it well. We won’t need any training as this is how they serve their passengers year round.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served via open seating at one of the two traditional restaurants, but you can take advantage of the Garden Cafe and Great Outdoors Cafe, which are outdoor cafes.
Pearl's two main dining rooms serve up the same menu but with different decor, so you feel like you are dining in two different dining rooms.
There's also a Continental breakfast served in Bar City (an area with multiple drinking establishments on Deck 6), with rolls, croissants, juice, coffee, tea, bagels, cream cheese and smoked salmon. The bars aren't open at that hour, so it's a quiet, pleasant place to have a morning meal.
Complimentary late-night food options start around 10 p.m. You can find these late night snacks in four areas: Bar City (right outside of Le Bistro), Pearl Club Casino, Great Outdoors Cafe and O'Sheehan's.
Both Bar City and the casino usually offer one main finger food (like egg rolls, steak skewers) followed by assorted fruit, cookies and sandwiches. Great Outdoors takes it up a notch with hot entrees, soups, salads and bacon and eggs for partygoers until about 4 a.m. O'Sheehan's is open 24/7, offering pub food like chicken potpie or Buffalo wings to soak up the drinks or satisfy those late night munchies.
BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER
DECK 6, MIDSHIP
Indigo, the smaller of the two main dining rooms, fittingly features a blue and purple color scheme with flashy, multicolored artwork of American landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Hollywood sign. Indigo is usually open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but dinner is served a bit later here than in Summer Palace, for those looking to eat later in the evening.
CUISINE More Traditional
ISummer Palace is only accessible by walking down a short staircase at the back of the ship to Deck 6. The restaurant features a stunning array of red and green seating, marble columns and large windows at the aft. The artwork that line the walls will make you seem like you are dining at a fancy estate. The menus in both main dining rooms are the same, and most selections change nightly.
Dishes marked with a check are healthy options, and vegetarian options are available, along with other dietary accommodations, arranged upon request. A sugar-free dessert is available at every meal.
Besides an array of ice cream, pies and the like, both dining rooms also offer specialty Lavazza Italian coffee, available at an additional charge.
The Main dining room breakfast menu offers up made-to-order hot and cold options like omelets, cereal, pastries, fresh fruit, French toast, bagels and lox and eggs Benedict.
