About Norwegian Cruise Line
Feel Free - the modern concept of Norwegian Cruise Line accompanies you in all the aspects of your voyage. Take advantage of different dining options without fixed table times and eat when you like to. No importance is attached to certain clothing rules, enjoy your vacation as spontaneous and flexible as you want. The ships of the Norwegian Cruise Line are in a sense club ships with an international flair. German menus and German-speaking contact persons make life on board much easier. Whenever possible within Europe, excursions with German speaking guides are offered. Basic knowledge in English, however, is recommended on the ships of the American cruise line.
The Norwegian Pearl, the sister ship of the Norwegian Gem, was built in 2006 in the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg, and offers double occupancy 2,394 guests. The ship was last renovated in 2017. With 294 meters in length and 93,502 GT, it is one of the medium-sized ships of the fleet. On board there are many different dining options and bars where you can round off the evening. A bowling alley at sea, the impressive casino, the relaxing spa area and the spacious Garden Villas are just some of the on-board amenities.
The cabins are very modern and comfortable furnished. The inside cabins are about 13 m² in size, the outside cabins measure 14-15 m² and the balcony cabins are already 19 m² in size. The cabins usually have 2 lower beds that convert to a queen-size bed. Some cabins also have a 3rd and 4th bed, usually as an upper folding bed. The guests of the suites and villas (between 31.5 and 395 m² in size) are offered pure luxury, including butlers and concierge as well as daily attentions. You also have access to a private Courtyard area with private pool, sundeck and fitness area.

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
The large bowling alley is one of the highlights on the ship. The Stardust Theater offers great shows every day that promise great entertainment. A Las Vegas-style casino can be found on board, as well as quieter areas such as a card game room, a library, an art gallery and an internet café. Of course, there is also a disco / night club where you can dance the night away. There is an exclusive club offer for the kids and teens where they can have a great time among peers and with exciting programs and activities - adults are not allowed. The whole family can enjoy karaoke or the video arcade, for example. A large fitness area open 24 hours a day leaves nothing to be desired. A jogging track, basketball / volleyball court and numerous aerobics classes offer something for everyone. Ping-pong tables and golf tees, as well as swimming pools and whirlpools may of course also be missing. A special highlight is the on-board climbing wall. When it comes to wellness, the South Pacific Spa & Fitness Center leaves nothing to be desired. Beauty or massage treatments, a hairdresser's visit or various saunas are available for your relaxation.
Onboard guests feel comfortable, who want to experience a relaxed and informal holiday in an international atmosphere. The cruises are offered at relatively low prices. Families feel just as comfortable on the ships as couples or solo travelers.
