Review of Pearl Mist

Pearl Mist is a contemporary small cruise ship. She was built in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2014. Years of legal dispute delayed the vessel being put into operation, so mv Pearl Mist did not leave on an inaugural cruise until June 2014. Currently, she is operated and owned by Pearl Seas Cruises.

History - construction & ownership

The 5,100-ton, 210-passenger cruise ship Pearl Mist was ordered by Pearl Seas Cruises from Irving Shipyards in 2006 for US$43.5 million. She was the first ship to be built for the cruise line. Pearl Mist's keel was laid down in July 2007. Pearl Seas and Irving started their dispute just 5 months after the beginning of construction.

The vessel was launched on March 14, 2008 and completed in June 2010, but due to the dispute the company refused to accept it. Pearl Mist was laid up in Nova Scotia (Shelburne) to await the outcome of legal process. A settlement was reached in 2013. Pearl Mist was accepted by the Pearl Seas Cruises line and towed to Baltimore in April 2013. She was later taken in hand by Salisbury-based Chesapeake Shipbuilding for fitting out.

Cruise itinerary program

Pearl Mist itinerary program is based on Eastern Caribbean round-trip cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico. The vessel also offers USA East Coast sailings from Boston MA, as well as USA and Canada cruises (“Great Lakes & Georgian Bay”) leaving out of Chicago (Illinois, USA) and Toronto (Ontario, Canada).

The 210-passenger Pearl Mist became the ever first ship to operate roundtrip Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) to Cuba cruises with 10- day itineraries (January through April) and and 11-day itineraries (November and December). The Cuban itinerary's ports of call are Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad (Cuba), El Cobre, Santiago de Cuba and Casilda.

In January 2018, Pearl Seas Cruises announced a new Pearl Mist cruise itinerary along East Coast USA and Canada (Maine to Bay of Fundy / New Brunswick and Nova Scotia). The 7-night / 8-day roundtrip from Portland ME visits Rockland ME; Eastport ME; St Andrews NB; St John NB, as well as Grand Manan Island (Fundy Islands) and Bar Harbor ME. Departures were scheduled for 2018 May 12, Oct. 16, Oct. 23.

Cabins

The Pearl Mist ship is described as "luxury", featuring 105 double rooms (between 302-580 ft2), all of which with an outside balcony. Pearl Mist can accommodate 210 passengers. The ship is equipped with modern amenities, including wireless internet access and flat screen TVs. The staterooms are comfortable and even the smaller G and H categories are big enough for 2 people to move with ease. All cabins can fit 3 adults.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Pearl Mist features only one dining room with all meals served in a single seating. Food is excellent, but passengers are asked to select lunch and dinner choices at breakfast so the chef will know what has to be prepared ahead of time. However, if later you are in the mood for something different, you are not locked into your choice. The chef is flexible easily modifies most recipes to serve any dietary restriction. Waiters quickly learn who is gluten-free, who is on a low-salt diet, etc. to ensure each guest is taken care of. There is always an entree option and a vegetarian appetizer.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Daytime fun aboard the Pearl Mist ship is restricted to board or card games, chats with new friends and destination lectures. Evening entertainment consists of single musical acts. On most itineraries, the ship calls at a new port every day, thus leaving little time for onboard activity. Before or after the port visits, passengers can attend an expert talk on the area's history, geography and culture. Other afternoon activities include bingo, trivia, golf putting challenge, arts&crafts and the occasional sun deck games in the Caribbean. The small bridge is open for passengers once or twice per cruise.
