Terrific crew on a beautiful ship

The Bliss now has been added to my list of favorite ships. The vessel itself is beautiful with everything in a logical place with the notable exception of Le Bistro, which is oddly hidden on an upper deck. The ...

Great ship but . . .

This is a beautiful ship. We had a mini suite and thought the bathroom was great. It had a huge double sink with 2 faucets and a big shower. Worth the extra charge for sure! The room is a bit smaller than Celebrity ...

The Bliss is a beautiful ship. Norwegian got it right with this plus class. They have made up for the sins of the Epic. Embarkation was a breeze. They used two terminals at the Port of Miami and this kept the ...

Great ship, great time.

Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth. We were on the ship by 11:30, our room was ready by 1:00 and the luggage arrived shortly thereafter. Getting off and on at ports was easy - no standing around waiting in ...

Good food, beware that they nickel and dime you for everything

We recently went on this cruise ship from Miami to the Caribbean. Embarkation was pretty good. The disembarkation was a long line, disorganized. The ship is nice. It's huge and there are TONS of people. A lot of ...

)Ship: Bliss is big and beautiful with some wasted space. For example: near Surgarcanes the bathrooms are no longer there is just a walking area with art work. No midship elevators and at times the elevators were ...

Disappointed with this Ship

This ship is too big. This was our third cruise with Norwegian (past cruises on Getaway and Escape). We were disappointed that Spice H2O was cut to half the size on the other ships to accommodate the loading area of ...

On a Mega ship Haven is the way to go

I wanted to see the new ship. It is not a ship for smokers, there is 1 area that is "free" to smoke. H2O had the smallest smoking area that I've seen on any NCL ship, it was crowded not comfortable and partially ...

Overall fun, but we've had better

The Ship was nice looking, at first it seemed smaller on the inside than other cruiselines we've experienced. But we realized that it had more social areas, which was a big plus side as it did not feel overcrowded ...
