Our first cruise ever. Our stateroom was very clean and our steward was very friendly. I was expecting a shoebox but my husband and I had plenty of room. The food was good everywhere we ate. We tried most all the restaurants but there were a few we didn’t get to. All crew members were very friendly. We were always greeted with ‘hello’ and often asked if we were enjoying the cruise. We especially liked the Sugarcane Mojito Bar. Bartenders Bong and Pedro are incredible. It gets busy at times and you might have to wait but they work hard to make every drink just right. All the shows we attended were very good. There is always something going on. If you can’t find something to do, you’re not looking. The ship is beautifully maintained- very clean. The only negatives I encountered were the pool and the elevators. There are about 16 elevators on the ship and they are usually full and sometimes you have to wait a long time to get one. Sometimes we got lucky and didn’t have to wait and there were only a few people in it. The pool and hot tubs were always full and we couldn’t get near them for the most part. Lots of parents let kids play in the hot tubs instead of the kiddie pool (which looked like fun to me!) but that’s more a parent issue than a Norwegian issue. Overall, we had a great experience.

So I cruise NCL quite often, in fact earned a status upgrade from platinum too platinum plus on this trip. Which means I'll get 2 Champaign, 2 water, and 60 minutes of internet in May on my next trip. So what did NCL do right on thus ship. It is beautiful, comfortable and all designed in all the common areas. With a few exceptions. The main donning rooms are similarly located, and the garden cafe as well. A very new addition is the observation lounge, which has the feel of the haven and comfort of your living room. It also provides able early morning continental service for the early riser. The pool deck it a little too crowded like their last 2/3 ships Escape and Getaway, I preferred the Epic for that. But the rooms are nicer on this ship. The one concern I do have is they cut out several bathroom facilities and the remaining ones are smaller, so after the show or leaving dinner you'll have to walk. A return to headliner entertainment was a bonus. Jersey boys was exceptional. The Casino had moved all smoking into an enclosed area, even thoughI didn't smoke out was one of the areas I could find s seat to play. The humidor room has a no cigarette policy they enforce. Which is good because on the getaway it was always too Smokey. I happened to be blessed enough with a suite on thus last trip, but looked in on other rooms and they are tight but not skimpy. Food was great except I was disappointed with La Cuchina due to menu changes, and the Seafood Restaurant Ocean Blue failed to meet a minimum acceptability rating from me. The rest were excellent. O'Sheehan's is called THE Local and is otherwise the same. Read Less

I just got back from 7 days on the Bliss. No boat is perfect so I gave it a 4, but I can't figure out why some others rate it so low. I've sailed Disney, and RC, and this is my first Norwegian. The crew was as friendly as any other. The food was good in the main dining rooms, and what you'd expect in the buffet. I didn't book any specialty, and didn't see a need to. (I'm not a foodie, so if you are you may feel differently) If you want to use the gokarts, laser tag, or see a show, then book them as soon as you get on. This was my first MegaShip and I only felt the crowd in a few places. The ship was designed for Alaska, so the adult pool area is really too small for a sunny cruise. The kids pool and the water slides were not crowded at all. If you can stand to be away from the pool the area on deck 19 port side outside Vibe Beach Club has a hot tub, plenty of loungers, a bar and washrooms. And it's not busy. Gems of the Bliss are the Observation Lounge, and the Deck 8 walkway. Why don't more people have breakfast and lunch in the Observation Lounge? If do eat in the buffet, go to the front to sit. It's the same view as the Observation Lounge and there are always tables. If you want to just go for a relaxing walk then go to deck 8. Room was on deck 9 by the stairs and it was good. No noise at all. I'm average size, but I don't know how larger lads deal with the shower, I guess the rounded shape helps... I went into this worried about the size of the ship and the reviews about the surly crew. Neither were an issue. If you have a trip coming up, relax and enjoy yourself. I you are thinking of pulling the trigger on an Alaska cruise on the Bliss, it will be a great experience if you do. Read Less

We had a great vacation onboard the Bliss. Food was great and entertainment was varied and excellent. Buffet-Lots to chose from. Standouts were the Mongolian Beef, vetable stir fry, and beef with broccoli. Room service- Great turkey sub, my husband liked the supreme pizza. We ordered often. The Local- Great that there is something 24/7. Good pub food, especially the Asian wings. Q- was ok, other restaurants were better. Cagneys-Food was excellent, service was slow. Le Bistro- wonderful meal. I am not really a desert eater, but they were the bomb. Teppaanyaki-Very good. We had great tablemates and a funny chef. Prohibition show- It was ok, but I don’t feel like it worth $36 each. Adults only for sure. Jersey Boys- We really enjoyed this show. It was face paced and the cast was very talented. Siglo band was excellent as was Tatianna. We took the aft elevators whenever possible. We never had to wait for an elevator. We had a great time and would not hesitate to sail her again. Read Less

The Norwegian Bliss is a beautiful new ship that really stands out for the broad number of bars/lounges/common areas that make a very big ship feel smaller. They have separate bars that cater to almost* any type of appetite, from dedicated bars for whiskey (Maltings), mojitos (Sugar Cane), beer (District), wine (The Cellars) and much more. Most of these on deck 8 also had an outward facing prescence on the Waterfront (a path around most of the ship), which was very cool. However, a key concern for me is the wine -- hence my screen name -- and while most of these bars were quite good at what they did, the wine program across the ship was quite poor, I'd rate it only 2 of 5 stars. Wine Program: -- Limited Wines in the Package -- A first problem is that the wines by the glass were extremely limited. There were 30 of them that were available in virtually all bars and restaurants and of those 18 were available within the Premium Beverage Package (i.e., under 15). The remaining wines -- as well as a few that were more expensive and available only in The Cellars or at the steakhouse specialty restaurant, Cagney's. The upside here is that you could get an credit of $15 toward any of the wines above your limit, so a $20 wine would cost you $5 out of pocket. My concern here, though was that the # of wines by the glass were quite limited and really were pretty standard (e.g., chardonnay, white zinfandel, cabernet). There were a number of other bottles that were under $50, which is the price that should be "within" the package by the glass, that were not available. One example was a Gruner Veltliner from Pfaffl that was very nice and given the bottle price of only $33, would have been a no-brainer within the package. -- Wine Service was limited -- The knowledge level of most wait staff for wine, including the bartender in The Cellars, was quite low. On several occasions we asked about ordering a Zinfandel (a red wine) and were asked if we meant a White Zinfandel. More disappointing was that the time to take a wine order and bring it to the table was very long. For example, at La Cucina (a specialty Italian restaurant) we were seated at 7:20pm and after we didn't get a wine list asked for it (2x) before they brought it and took our order for a bottle of wine. We didn't actually have the wine in our glasses until 8pm -- after which we had already been served our appetizers. Happily, we did meet a very nice Wine Steward, Prince, in the main dining room who made the experience there quite nice by providing recommendations and even allowing us to sample a wine or 2 that were already open to see if we might like it. Unfortunately, this was the last night of the cruise. Overall, the wine program left a lot to be desired relative to other cruise lines. It seems that NCL takes drinking very seriously for everything except wines. The District had 24 beers on tap as well as many, many more by the bottle. All of those were in the package. Wine, on the other hand, appeared to be an after thought. I can only figure this reflects the preferences of the guests, but if so I means I won't be eager to return to NCL. Entertainment: A true highlight of the Bliss was the sheer amount and quality of musical entertainment. From the main stage show of Jersey Boys (that was as high of quality as what we paid to see in Chicago) to the incredible Beatles impersonators in The Cavern, it was top notch. There were also a number of acts that were performing around the ship so that one always had about 3 options to choose from. The only real complaint about the music was that the pool band, which played from about 1pm to 4pm every day, was so incredibly loud that it drove us away from the pool. The music was well done, but when your stomach shakes from bass while reading, it is a bit much. Pool Scene: -- A rowdy, hard-drinking crowd, that got a bit over the top by the end of the day. There are only 2 pools on the Bliss and both are on the main deck. One for the kids and one for adults. The entire deck was VERY crowded and typically all chairs were taken by 7:30am. The crowd on the adult pool hovered between 45 and 60 years old and were a rowdy, fun loving bunch. This was entertaining, but at times it became a bit much and we had to divert our kids attention away from them. Quite frankly, it felt more like a Carnival ship. Maybe that was atypical for NCL, but we were surprised. The Bliss would have been infinitely better if there had been a pool in the Spice H2O "beach club" in the back of the ship. We visited one day and saw people taking multiple shots at the bar and more than 1 person had to be escorted back to their room by security. It would have been great had that facility had room for all the "adult-only" pool guests. Kids Programming: -- A real highlight -- The kids program Splash Academy was a very nice option and our kids couldn't get enough of it. They felt the organized programming was a real nice feature -- even compared it to a Disney cruise -- a very high compliment! Other Options: --Nickel and Dimed -- There were lots of fun options to do on the ship, such as laser tag and go karts. Both were a neat feature and priced at 9.95 were a reasonable value. However, there were so many upcharges for specialty restaurants, games, bowling, that one began to feel that the entire focus of the staff was on the upsell. When you've already paid for an all incusive vacation (with the drink package) this does get old. Overall, we had a fine time on the Bliss and felt there were a number of real assets to its design. The number of clubs/bars/lounges was impressive and the entertaining was tremendous. But the ship did feel crowded, particularly at the pool deck and buffet, and it was clear that NCL does not take its wine program seriously enough. Read Less

Very quick embarkation and debarkation despite Port of Miami being crazy busy. The ship is beautiful and the service was excellent. Food was very good. Most nights we ate in Savor, the same menu as the MDR and we found a very good wait team, ask for Bernadette and Guisti! The Mixx bar right outside of Savor was great, Allen was our favorite bartender. Sugarcanes outside bar is very nice when the ship is moving. St Thomas and Tortola are both very beautiful. Comedian was good, the singer/comedian was funny. One hint though make your show reservations as soon as you get on the ship. They have an enclosed smoking area in the casino so even though there is a still a smoky smell at least you don't have to be encased in a cloud of smoke. The Bliss was built for Alaska so there are alot of great views all over the ship. Read Less

I chose this cruise because I wanted to try NCL and the new ship the BLISS. The race car track and laser tag peaked my interest as well as the specialty dining options. I am a die-hard Disney Cruise Line fan and I have cruised on Royal Caribbean and Princess. I would rate Disney #1, Royal Caribbean and NCL tied for second and Princess #3. Let's get to it; embarkation was super fast and easy. It seemed like confusion but they move you through the line quickly and get you on-board. It took us about 35 minutes from getting off the bus at the port to walking through the casino on the ship. There were 8 in my party. We went straight to guest services to get our race car and laser tag reservations ($9.95/person) and our dinner reservations for Cagney's (could not book 8 online). No problem with any of this. In and out in 15 minutes or so. The reservations were not handled at Guest Services, they were done at the Social Club and the Tepanyaki restaurant. Went to the Garden Cafe' buffet. Place was packed but we expected that on embarkation day. Plenty of friendly staff and well presented food. Lots of options. Got a seat for 8 in 15-20 minutes. Were in our cabin (12200) at 1 pm. Food...Garden Cafe' buffet; ate there several times per day. Good variety, large dining room with tables, booths and tall tables with bar stools. Many stations with the same items so you don't have to stand in one line for pizza! Fresh fruit, salad, hot and cold entrees, ice cream (soft served and hand dipped with cones), flavored water, coffee and tea. windows wrap around front of ship so you always have a view even if you're not seated at a window. Staff cleans tables constantly. You can take your food with you to the pool deck or your room or just walk around the ship eating! The Local; similar to a BWW or Applebees. Decent food, breakfast, lunch and dinner, complementary. Loud due to the location. Savor and Taste and the Manhattan Room; main dining rooms for dinner, complimentary, Manhattan room is huge, you'll get a seat quickly, all three have the same menu, Savor and Taste are more intimate. Could not accommodate 8 of us so we ate in the Manhattan Room. Decent food, good staff. Specialty Dining: Q...great bar-b-q, live country band, not busy. Had ribs, chicken, sausage, really small sides. Three meals including soda for $56. 20% gratuity was included in the $56. Food Republic...limited sushi menu but the crispy salmon and pork dumpling were excellent. 1 of each for $16 including a soda. Cagney's...food was served cold and not prepared per instructions. Sent back 4 different entrees to be redone. Crab cakes not good! Steaks were okay (Palo's on Disney has the best filet). Staff took off the appetizers. 3 meals with sodas $57.60. Los Lobos...really good Carne asada steak with guac and chips. Free with cruise package. Coco's...gelato instead of ice cream not my favorite. $15 for a huge gelato sundae. Did not eat at the other specialty restaurants. Drinks: I don't drink but the other folks told me the drinks were watered down. Maybe they don't use top shelf alcohol. If you have the Ultimate Drink Package, drink up! Plenty of bars throughout the ship. Did not go to any shows, no bingo, no comedy club, no art auction. Casino has lots of slots, 1 craps table and 1 roulette table. Lots of poker and blackjack. Pool deck is a good place to dance and listen to music. Live bands play every night in different locations on the ship. Pool area is always crowded so go early if you want a lounge chair. Don't think about swimming. You'll be lucky to get your feet wet. Even the Spice H2O area was crowded. Race car track was awesome. Only problem is they slow your car down if you go too fast. Laser tag was fun but you have to shoot the opponents rifle. You can cover the sensors so you don't get shot. Staff members are on your team. They know how to cheat! Service was great. Plenty of friendly staff. Some sing while serving you treats. Ports were okay. I've been to St Thomas (Megan's Bay) and Nassau before but I wanted to visit Tortola. If you are not doing an excursion in Tortola, don't waste your time getting off the ship! Not much to see or do, limited souvenirs, blah. Fees: There is a service fee of $14.50/day/person charged on this cruise. That was $304.50 for our cabin. Make sure you read your contract as it explains what this covers. I had them take the charge off my bill because most of the services it covered I did not use. I always prefer to tip the staff personally anyway, which is what I did. There was also a fee for drinks to be served at pool side. So, if you are laying on your lounge chair and order a drink, there is a charge of 88 cents to bring it to you. All specialty dining has a 20% gratuity added into the price. Room service has a $7.95 fee. If you order something that is not listed on the menu, you pay for it and the 20% plus the $7.95 fee. Make one big order and eat it all day. We had a photo session with the photography studio to take family portraits. We spent almost two hours with the photographer. Took pictures in the studio as well as on the lighted staircase and anywhere else around the ship we requested. The photographer was very thorough and patient. Unfortunately the price for the digital photos was extremely high. $1,999.00 for 72 digital photos (no prints) or $1,599.00 for 36 (no prints). There were some additional options with the most expensive package being $2,399.00. A single 8x10 print will run you $24.99. We had some problems with our photo package that have not been corrected yet so I'll just say, if you get digital prints, make sure you look at them on the flash drive BEFORE you leave the ship. The observation lounge is a very nice area with plenty of chairs, sofas, and lounges plus snack and beverage stations. It wraps around the front of the ship so if you get there early enough you can get the same view the Captain gets from the bridge. There were always seats available on the sides and it was always quiet. Great for reading and napping! The water slides, ping pong, miniature golf, arcade, etc. are nice as well. There is even a two lane bowling alley in The Local. There is a cost for the arcade games and bowling however; $6 per person for bowling and $1.10-$2.20 for arcade games. Overall I give my cruise experience a 6.8 out of 10. The ship is beautiful, modern, well decorated and laid out smartly. Friendly and plentiful staff. Always something going on but plenty of time to just relax as well. Read Less

This cruise was almost sold out so, a lot of people on board. Lovely ship, new and shiny and wonderful decor. Chose this ship because of the activities that were offered, especially for kids. There were lots of things, but for our family, with 3 grand children, of varying ages, they kids were not able to enjoy the various "clubs" together. Yes, there were other things to do but, they would have been separated and they did not want that. The cabins were very nice. The mini suites had a much larger bathroom than we have had on other cruise lines and that was great. Balcony was kinda small. The staff was exemplary, everywhere. The cabin steward was outstanding and the service in the restaurants and bars was excellent. The food, by accounts of all 9 of us, was very good wherever we ate. In my opinion, the outdoor areas were severely limited by the go kart space, the laser tag space, water slide area and the Haven space. This left very little room for the pool area and it was incredibly crowded during the 4 of the 7 day cruise. Very small and extremely crowded pool area......that closed by 6 for outdoor movies. I think it is a poor design just to add attractions. Oh and the lineups for the water slide made it not much fun for the kids, they got tired of waiting. Same went for the carts, long lines and reservations needed. Laser tag was only open in the evening. The arcade was expensive and if you got a pass, it was only good for less than half of the games inside. The kids clubs were closed from 12 till 2. For a ship of this size and with that many people, the theater is very small as are a lot of the entertainment venues. If you didn't get a reservations (as they were booked up early) and the wait lines were not long, you may get in. The Beatles show has a maybe 40 seat venue (we could not get in any night) you had to be there an hour or more waiting in line before it started. I think what dissapointed us the most was the very small pool and outdoor areas and while quite a lot of entertainment, the venues were small if you were not lucky enough to get a reservation (where one was needed) or waited in line to be told it was full. This was our second NCL cruise and our first on such a big ship. I think we will say goodby to NCL and go back to the other line we have used. Read Less

We have taken 9 cruises as a family. 6 with royal Caribbean 2 with princesses and this past cruise on the ncl bliss. It fell short of our expectations mainly because of the ship design and setup. The ship was clean, the quality of the food was good and the service was excellent, but if you are traveling with children you may not be happy with the bliss. Our young children always enjoyed the kids club on the royal Caribbean but on this ship after the first day they refused to go back. They said the counselors in the kids club were mean and not fun. So for the rest of the cruise they tried to enjoy the pool and the slides but they would get bored after 30 minutes, now the ship has go carts and laser tag but you have to pay $9.95 each time you use it and if you don’t reserve it in advance prior to your cruise you may never be able to get in. Our children did get to go in the laser tag but after a few times the cost adds up. Another problem we had with the ship was the actual layout. In the main pool area there are two pools, one dedicated to adults only and one for children which was fine but you never find a lounge chair available unless you wake up at 5am to reserve the chair another problem was the hot tubs. They are located one level above the pool level on deck 17. There are 4 hot tubs (2 on each side) and they are so small that literally 4 adults fits in each and they of course were always full. They have dedicated another portion of the ship to an adult only sun deck which has another hot tub, but also in this area lounge chairs were scarce and we could not be there because we were cruising with young children. Next issue was the shows. One night we saw the Havana and another night Jersey boys. On both shows the quality of the performance was not that great in comparison to shows we had seen on royal Caribbean. There were also several comedy shows but we were able to catch one of them that was in the bliss theater the others were in smaller lounges which filled up very quickly so no seats available. The comedians were very funny, specially mike paramour was excellent. Another problem I had was the gym. It was very small and very few machines. I like to work out in the morning before breakfast but except for one day when the shipped docked early on st. Thomas, I couldn’t work out in the mornings. The only time I found machines available were around 3 to 4pm when most people were sunbathing. Again comparing to the gyms on royal Caribbean ships, the bliss did not measure up. Also in most royal Caribbean ships you can use the sauna and steam room but on this ship you have to pay a surcharge to use the spa. Now on a positive note the food quality and variety and the quality of service were all excellent. We ate dinners in the Manhattan and breakfast and lunch in the cafe on deck 16. There were many choices each day and I was specially impressed by the number of omlet stations during breakfast. This kept the lines short. Read Less

Here is my review of the Norwegian Bliss. I just sailed in February. For anyone who has sailed the Getaway or the Escape, the Bliss is very similar. She is quite large and beautiful. Some changes from the Escape-Ocean Blue is back (never tried), Moderno is gone (never tired but friends had like it a lot) and BBQ and Mexican restaurants have been added. I knew there was an observation lounge-but was not prepared for how expansive and amazing it is. It is has a wow-factor. Also, if you find yourself looking for a place to enjoy conversation and cocktails without live music (as I had that issue at every bar on a sailing of the Epic in 2018), the observation lounge would be a great place to head. Also, good for playing cards or board games-has its own bar too. Embarkation was ok-NCL did not seem prepared for its Plantinum+, as it did not have the special check in area ready and never came to pick up the Platinum+ for boarding (as I was later told is the normal process). Also, things have gotten out of hand with so many items needing to be purchased onboard or reserved onboard (dining, passes, laser tag/go cart bookings). NCL needs a new process before someone gets hurt trying to get onboard to reserve dinners, book a spa pass, etc. Personally, I suggest letting people buy online and hiking the prices for passes. I had lunch day 1 at Taste-delicious! Love their fish n chips (also great at the Local (pub)). My cabin (a studio cabin) was nice. They have shrunk the beds to what essentially feels like a twin. This is a deal breaker for me. I do not feel any adult should have to sleep in a twin. After my sailings on the Encore next year, I can’t see myself sailing the Bliss or Encore unless I can avoid the studios or they replace the beds with adult-appropriate beds. Reportedly, some had complained they need more room to move around (seems as if NCL is catering to the aging). The studios now have virtual windows showing outside. Mine did not work for part of the sailing-no big deal to me. I would rather they bring back the mood lighting available on the Escape. The Studio corridor was also very wood decor-versus more neon and colorful like the prior ships’ studio corridors. My steward was good-no complaints. Food-La Cucina was good-enjoyed a ravioli meal. Cagneys was great-filet was amazing. The main dining room menus have changed slightly-not too impressed. Very upset that they dropped the Chicken Parm-that should be an every day option. Garden Café and Pub were both good-especially the pizza and fish n chips. Entertainment-this is still an area NCL where lets me down. I feel they cater to an older crowd. I did not see Jersey Boys but a friend around my age (30s), had not enjoyed it and those who I’ve heard give it good reviews have been older. This is a theme I’ve noted over the years (ex: Million Dollar Quartet). Someday, NCL may start catering to their 40s and below cruisers. I did not get to any comedy shows (which I regret). NCL has a new app (which appears good)-but did not allow me to see which comedian I was booking-so that is something they need to work out. That said, I wish I’d made time for the comedy-usually enjoyable. Next cruise! Deal or No Deal was fun-as usual. The free cruise giveaway has been reduced to 5-day cruise (raffled off at Bingo)-disappointing and probably not worth missing tanning time to enter. Even 7-days is not enough! The Bliss has added laser tag and go carts-which to me is space that should be used for more sundeck chairs. Plus, it attracts children-not a demographic important to me. Spice H20 appears slightly smaller. The hot tubs by the pool have been moved to the deck above the pool on this ship. There appeared to be two adult pools (honestly I spent no time by the pools as that chaos is not something I enjoy). I do think putting the hot tubs on 17 makes the deck that people walk/jog on a bit too wet. White Hot Glow Party is no more. I did not check out its replacement (Caliente?). I hope they bring the white glow party back by popular demand. Overall, staff were amazing, as usual! Love Maltings Bar and my friends seem to really like the Mojito bar. I made new friends-courtesy of the solo program. Observation lounge is massive and a beauty. Can’t wait to cruise again! Read Less
