Excellent Ship and Phenomenal Crew
"But first, a bit of cruising history of us: this was our 7th cruise overall, 2nd on NCL, and 1st cruise out of a US west coast port.The value just isn't there for the cruise fare paid, and the constant reminder on the ship that anything interesting costs extra...."Read More

My wife and I have done this itinerary a few times on NCL and other cruise lines but this the first time we have sailed on the Bliss and would sail on it again. Any cruise on the west coast is a bonus for us and the transfer from LAX to the cruise port went smoothly. The cruise port was another story though expected I suppose with 4000 passengers being herded through the embarkation process. ...

We have taken multiple cruises on Azamara, Celebrity and others over the years. This was our first NCL cruise since the early 2000's. We wanted a cruise that left from a West Coast port and went somewhere warm. We chose between this and smaller ships making essentially the same trip from Celebrity, Holland Cruise Lines and a couple of others. Boy, what a mistake. Just a couple of things to know ...

this was our first trip going to Alaska, we have done the carribean cruises so this was a always one we wanted to do. On the whole thee ship was great. the service was very good and the food even the buffets were outstanding. Now to two small complaints the ship has a capacity for 4004 guests and this trip only 2700 were on board. So you would think they would not have run out of coffee for the ...

We chose this cruise because my husband always wanted to go to Alaska. This cruise exceeded expectations in every way. We were just blown away by the beauty of Alaska, and also by the Norwegian Bliss! First, the ship. She is a beauty. We received our upgrade request for a spa balcony so we had access to the Thermal Suite every day. It was great. Our steward was Jay and he was nothing ...

chose this cruise because we wanted to experience AK and the initial price was reasonable. received an email the Tuesday before we left that negative COVID tests were required, not complaining but, that cost us another $250, to get the 'medically supervised' tests and results before boarding. the room was made up for a couple and our travel agent requested the beds be split, guest services ...

I was scheduled to sail NCL Prima August 2022 but cruise was cancelled because of supply chain issues. I was given a 25% off coupon towards my next cruise. I had not gone anywhere since 2019 and decided on a.second Alaskan cruise. It was a different journey than my first cruise. I was very eager to cruise and decided to stick closer to the USA because COVID was still such an ...

Check in was 5 star, I’ll give it that. Though we ran into loads of people who didn’t get a test before they got there because of conflicting information. Luckily they had Covid testing right at check in for those people but it’s not cheap $ and takes awhile. So get a test within 72 hours. For us, we dropped our bags off and were in the buffet for lunch within 20 minutes. The food was ...

We are a couple who decided to finally cruise without now grown children to see Alaska. Like many people it was on our "bucket list". Norwegian seemed to make it enticing by making so many things "free", but the reality is the items that are free really only pay a small amount of the total cost of the meal or excursion, which can run into hundreds more than the 50$ you are given. The "free open ...

My father had always wanted to take a cruise to Alaska. So, I took my 79 year old elderly father on this NCL Bliss to Alaska. We were to leave from Seattle on the 10th, however, we along with the passengers who booked their whuttle with NCL got left in Seattle. We had to fly to Sitka to meet the ship and board as downliners. We were to have a package of internet-free, packages-2 free, and ...
