Cruise ships have abundant bars. Many cruise ship passengers like to drink, and cruise lines like to make money selling alcohol to their passengers. Whether lounging by the pool or hanging around inside the ship, it’s never far to the nearest bar. Since I don’t drink I can’t give much of a review on the bars on the Norwegian Pearl other than to say that they exist.
We did visit the Star Bar some, as it was the meeting place for the concierge for suite guests and VIP’s. It was located next to Cagney’s Steak House, and had the same sort of western decor including chairs with a cowskin look.
Bliss Ultralounge & Nightclub contained the bowling alleys and also served as the location for some scheduled events on board as well as a meeting place for others so we also had occasion to visit there several times.
The Spinnaker Lounge hosted bingo games and other shipboard events. It also had an alcove full of round chairs and a random bed.
Lots of passengers hang around the Pearl Club Casino and visit the bar there. Casinos everywhere like their patrons to drink. The more they drink the more money they tend to spend gambling.
In total, the Pearl has 13 bars including a couple small specialty bars located inside of restaurants (the Sake Bar in the Lotus Garden and the Moderno Bar in the Churrascaria).
Bars outside include the Great Outdoors Bar on the stern, Topsiders Bar & Grill by the pool, and the Sky High Bar above the pool.
Down on deck 6, the Pearl’s Bar City has a string of bars all in a row including Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar, Magnum’s Champagne & Wine Bar, Corona Cigar Club, and Shaker’s Martini & Cocktail Bar.
