I was so excited to spend 7 days in the sun on the 9th largest cruise ship in the world! Brand new with all kinds of bells and whistles. Magic was going to happen. .....It was not exactly what I was expecting. The online process of logging into an account and check in was the worst ever causing much stress and many repeated phone calls to support. God forbid you use a curse word. They stop ...

We had never gone to the Mexican Riviera. We were really excited to go on the Bliss and to be back in the Haven. We have enjoyed the Haven on other NCL ships. My overall cruise experience with Norwegian is fantastic; however the last cruise on the Bliss was very poor. Our toilet did not work until Saturday afternoon, the last full day. We had to use the public restrooms in the Haven area ...

Where to start. I guess... some context, first. I’ve been on a lot of ships over the years, with different lines (Carnival, Royal, Princess... and now Norwegian). I’ve been on big ships and on smaller ones. While Carnival isn’t my thing, I’ll always remember “Stan”... one of the waiters in the main dining room. Nicest guy ever. Made my trip. While the food on Royal is consistently bad, I’ll ...

This is our 2nd Norwegian cruise with our kids. Our first one, 3 years ago on the Getaway, was fantastic. We stayed in the Haven in the 2 bedroom family villa and EVERY part of the cruise was fantastic! This cruise, we board to find a sign entering the Haven Sun Deck that only those 16 and over were permitted. That is completely ridiculous. First of all, there is ZERO communication on that ...

Long lines checking in, cancelled port, and 2 boring days in Victoria BC

Had a good experience cruising with the Bliss through the Panama Canal. Thought we would go again with the Bliss on the Canada and West Coast Cruise. Bad mistake, it took us 3 hours standing in line in Vancouver to get aboard the ship. There was no priority boarding for anyone other than the Haven. We then find out Seattle had been cancelled from one of our stops and we would spend 2 boring nights ...

I went on this cruise for my play daughters birthday. Although the bliss is a beautiful ship the service sucked. i payed for specialty dinners for two. i try not to eat off of a buffet because l don’t eat meat nor anything cooked with meat. i could not get any reservations at the seafood restaurant or any of the specialty restaurants . I was not informed in advanced that getting reservations ...

Just an OK cruise with a little drug use?

I had always thought bigger was better, however this was not the case. with 4000 guest on board the elevator situation on board is dreadful. Since the ship onl;y has a 2 elevator banks and upwards of 18 floors, you are always stuck waiting for an elevator you can sqeeze into. As for activities we were only able to catch 2 shows and one of which cost an additinal 29.95 per person for and we had ...

I used to love Norwegian. The Epic was my first cruise and I went on several after that before trying Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. One thing I always loved about Norwegian was the value. That has all changed. Now everything costs more. Margaritaville has a hamburger I like. When I was on the Breakaway a few years ago I went to Margaritaville every day for lunch. It was like $12 per ...

Let me start off by saying I work with the public on a daily basis. I WAS happy to see the wash stations at the buffet entrances. With that said, my mom and I both got terrible colds about the third day into our what was suppose to be a wonderful mother daughter trip. I haven't been sick in four years, terrible coincidents, possibly. OR..maybe there were too many germ breeding children. Had we ...

First things first getting on the boat felt eternal. And our walker-talkies were taken from us. No where did it say we were not able to take them aboard. Once on the boat the balcony room storage was way less then on carnivals. Having to hustle from line to line just to book shows dinning and laser tags/go karting was a pain. The days and times that would work for us and the size family of 5 was ...
