Norweigian Pearl Ship 

What a deal and a grand little weekend venture. For $130.00,  a relaxing and fun bus trip to Seattle, then boarding the Norwegian Pearl Cruise Ship the same morning and spending until the following morning aboard this huge, beautiful cruise ship. Fabulous meals, great service and sharing the fun with two good friends, Tom and I had a great time!

Not much fun getting up at 4 am, to be down at the Port by 6 am, but who cared…it was all fun!

Beautiful Seattle with the Space Needle in the distance.



BOARDING AT LAST! Here comes Patricia and Lillian


Morning and drinking already!!

P1060828Looking around the pool area. It became FULL of passenger’s using the pool, hot-tubs and eating, drinking and having fun!

P1060829One of the many pools to cool off. It was a beautiful warm day. Look at that fun slide!

P1060835Our room which with the balcony was a dream! So nice at night with the patio door open and hearing the water as we moved through with the ship, and fresh air, not air conditioning. Loved it!!

Tom and Linda's CabinTight quarter’s for the bathroom, which also had a shower on the other side.

Another one of the 13 bars and lounges onboard, including a casino, cigar club, and 11 various theme restaurants. Below, is an incredible glass blue sculpture.


Three gals having fun, Tom watching Seattle slip by, and one of the hallway of shops,that don’t open until the ship is moving, and then it’s hard to move in there!!

Wow, this bar and lounge called BLISS has the most relaxing lounge, I’ve ever seen!!


Very funky furniture and beds to lounge and snuggle on.Very different!!




P1060881 The Summer Palace where we dressed up for dinner. An opulent main dining room, dazzles with white and gold trim ceilings and 24-caret gold coated chandeliers. Beautiful place!


Girls having fun again and a little mischievous!!

This was truly a beautiful room, the pictures on the wall are beautiful and the food delicious. We ate our dinner right at this table by the window on the right. Tom was checking out another window seat.

  Good friends, great conversation and many laughs!

P1060954 After dinner, we went to the entertainment. This is the theater, and the screen, but I was not allowed to take pictures in here. A fabulous show, with dancers and a high wire act that was incredible. Of course Tom with his charm was hoping of taking one of the show girls home! But, by this time, he was getting just a little tired to be serious!!

We are being tailed by another ship,and now it’s going to pass us! It’s The Amsterdam, the ship we went to Antarctica on!! Hellloooooo…..remember us???

Before the next day, as we arrive in Vancouver and the sun raises into the morning sky, we have had much to eat, went to many events on the ship, lost money in the casino,and stayed up way beyond our bedtime. What fun! We are sailing into  home!

More cruise ships in port, getting ready for their last week of coming to Vancouver to take many lucky people away to luxury living, meeting new friends, gaining extra pounds and experiences and seeing great adventures.


Meanwhile…our adventure and fun have come to a close, as we devour our last breakfast on board the Norwegian Pearl. It was great fun, but we are all weary, exhausted and planning on going home for a snooze!
