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/steampunk-style vibe in the nightclub ) to the variety of onboard activities. There’s even more fun to be had if you’re on one of the wild and wacky charters the ship sails (Kiss Kruise, Mad Decent Boat Party, Walker Stalker Cruise).
All the surprising decor makes Norwegian Pearl a good ship to get lost on (which you might do until you discover that the only way to get from one end of the ship to the other is on decks 7 and 12). During your explorations, you might chance upon the colorful paintings that cover the outside promenade on Deck 7 (think cherry blossoms, dragonflies, and giant clip art-esque paintings of paintbrushes and lipsticks). Bars, restaurants, the pool deck, live music, and even an arcade keep cruisers occupied.
Each of the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship deck plans are conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and a detailed review of all the deck’s venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides a piece of extensive information on Norwegian Pearl staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans, and amenities by room type and category.
Norwegian Pearl cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 1197 staterooms for 2394 passengers (max capacity is 2873) served by 1070 crew-staff. The boat has 15 decks (12 passenger-accessible, 8 with cabins), 20 dining options, 13 lounges and bars, 3 swimming pools, 7 Jacuzzis (outdoor whirlpool hot tubs), 12 elevators.
