We did the first transatlantic trip on this boat. The ship is beautiful, the staff attentive and the food was sublime. Well it should be as they had pulled the best of the best crew for this trip. There was some training in evidence and we did have some snagging going on but I personally had no problem with this. I did have a problem with the extremely limited smoking facility. It was improved slightly during our stay but you either had to get very cold and wet on the H2O deck or go in the humidor which was a small box of a room which held about 20 people comfortably but was often filled with far more This was not fair on the cigar smokers who do not like to be surrounded by cigarette smoke when enjoying the very expensive cigars they purchased. The range of cocktails was good and they were freshly made on the whole. The food was really nice, we mainly ate at the Garden Cafe and the variety and amount of food was such that any one could have a good meal at any time. There is a bit too much time spent trying to upsell to you, the deposits on future cruises does not need to be mentioned several times a day, give the info and let people make their minds up, if you go to the demos about good posture or acupuncture but it is always just another way that they want you to spend money and lots of it, these are not cheap items. There is a lot to do but not always the space to enjoy it. The ship holds over 4,500 guests but the Cavern Club only holds 150, The Q room was always packed out for seminars and is badly planned to allow standing room, The Social was also too small. The theatre is only one level and that is not inclined enough so at the back it is very hard to see what is going on with all the heads in front. I am disabled and from a disability point of view I could not easily enter the H2O smoking area as the pathway was too narrow for the chair and I could not even begin to get into the humidor. There was a place to smoke in the casino but you could not smoke unless playing a machine or at the tables and I do no gamble very much. The staff soon chased you out even if you were playing a slot or table that was not available in the very small area of the casino that smoking was permitted. The 2 ports that we stopped at on the Azores and Halifax in Canada were very good although the tours would have been cheaper to have paid locally for. All that said we did have a good 12 days of chilling and having 99% of everything we needed done for us. Read Less

I’ve taken out on inaugural trips the latest Norwegian ships since the Epic, so Bliss was the latest. Having sailed Escape in 2015 I was familiar with the core layout and so concentrated on what is different for this ship. The bad points first (then we will get to the good points). No Moderno ☹️. My favourite restaurant in the fleet has been replaced by a Mexican which I didn’t fancy. Moreover not many others did, everytime I went by it it was near empty! New Cagneys menu. No baked potato Soup?!!! Or Oreo cheesecake . Also they have increased the prices so the larger filet is now over the $20 platinum limit (you can pay the upcharge if needed) Non theatre ents: lacking. No white hot / glow party. The caliante? Party was a bit of a flop, maybe better in warmer weather as a deck party but not in Alaska so not sure how that works. The skyline bar has now been swallowed up by the Casino and no longer the night venue. Instead the comedy club social doubled up as a half decent if sometimes cramped nightclub venue. No Howl at the moon either! The bar ents sang the same songs and the Beatles were the worst tribute act I’ve ever heard (and can’t unhear). There was another band that played in the Cavern which were half decent if you could get a seat. The Good points: The headline shows Havana and Jersey Boys we’re both great! I was a bit suspect as Jersey Boys out of my age range but sat through the 1hr 45mins clapping and tapping away. Havana was also a hit. The guest ents like tenors of rock were also great acts. Go-kart racing- was a lot more exciting than I thought it would be and well worth the $7 charge. Similarly the laser tag at $5 was a youthful blast from the past. Smokehouse venue, much better use of this venue and a late night bar. The food was really good and first time I’ve failed to finish a portion! All dining services were great, the crew were all great. The Brewhouse had loads of beers And lasted a lot longer than on Escape with some guest ales from Canada being added when we reached Halifax. Embarkation and disembarkation were fine, although we were at only about 50% capacity I had a trip into the Haven and it looks fantastic! The observation lounge was a bit hit and miss. It’s big, the bars at the very front, the toilets and the very back .. the walk in between at some stage resembled a cross between a retirement home and an inside sun deck with people sprawled out over sofas and yes some even had towels on the Chaisse long in the morning! The Internet when it was working was fastest I’ve had on any of the fleet and was able to stream live video from the ship during several events. Now if only they could bring back howl of the moon, white hot party and sort out a better night venue (smokehouse would have been better in my opinion) oh and Moderno it would have got 5* but can only give it 4*.

We were on the inaugural sailing of the Bliss from Southampton to New York in a mini-suite. We generally book the mini-suite for the extra space with three adults but was really surprised at the amount of space available in the cabin. We had extra cabinet space available after putting everything away for a 12-day cruise. The only drawback to the cabin is the lack of counter space making laying things out very difficult but we survived. The ship has 3 main dining rooms which serve the same dinner selections. The one thing strange was the ship retains only one menu for the entire week for lunch in the dining room. Most other ships have a unique menu each day especially with the number of sea days more people had the opportunity to enjoy a sit-down lunch over the buffet. The ship took away the standard extra fee for most of the specialty dining locations making them simply al-a-carte locations. This makes it difficult to determine if the cost of adding a specialty dining package onto your cruise is a bargain or not. We will have to really think about for our next cruise. The entertainment was actually a disappointment for us. The biggest disappointment was The Jersey Boys The Musical and not The Jersey Boys the singing group which was who we thought was going to be on the ship and the reason we booked the cruise. The musical from the start was obvious it was not family friendly with the overuse of vulgarity when there was no reason for it. This is a very long dull show that never improved from the first scene to the last. The other main show was Havanna which was also not family friendly and while this show was a little better than Jersey Boys it was another that one viewing was enough. This sailing was 99% adults but with the summer season approaching more children will be on board with families wanting to enjoy the evening together. These shows make it impossible for families to enjoy the show together. The cruise director staff for the most part were extremely friendly and seemed to enjoy interacting with the guests. However, removing your clothes at the show down to your underwear is not professional and I am sure not following NCL policies for entertaining their guests. It was nice to see some new games in the evenings to break up the standard ones. Overall the serve was excellent and the crew made it a relaxing enjoyable time for all the guests. Read Less

We did the Trans-Atlantic cruise last year on the Celebrity Eclipse and wanted to try a different cruise line this time around. The Bliss was still being built when we booked last September and looked like an amazing vessel, so we thought we'd give it a try. This is our third cruise, we did the Caribbean on the Disney Magic back in 2009, which was excellent. Boarding at Southampton was a fairly smooth, we arrived at 2:00pm and most of the passengers were already processed. Baggage drop-off signage could've been better, we had to drag our luggage about half the length of the ship to get it where it needed to be. Our bags rolled, so no big deal. I'm sure they'll get this ironed out soon. There was really no line to deal with processing in, we were in our room within ten minutes of arrival. Our initial room was 11209 aft with a balcony, but my wife bid on an upgrade and received it a few days before while we were still in London. Our new room was a mini-suite, 11109 mid-ship with a balcony and was absolutely beautiful. The entire ship was beautiful and smelled like a brand new car, everything shiny and spotless. We did Norwegian shore excursions in Ponta Degada, Azores and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Azores excursion was to the Furnas Valley and we had lunch at the Cozido Das Caldeiras. The area reminded us of Yellowstone National Park with all the boiling hotpots and steam coming from the ground. Our outstanding meal was cooked by being steamed for six hours in a large container placed in the ground. We highly recommend this excursion. We also stopped at a tea plantation and tested local brews. We were back at the ship by 5:00pm and heading out to sea by 6:00 pm. Beautiful countryside to enjoy. The Halifax excursion took us to Peggy's Cove, about 40 miles away. Unfortunately the weather was not great, raining heavily at times, but Peggy's Cove was just beautiful anyway. Rain or shine it's worth checking out. We bought the hop-on hop-off bus pass but didn't end up using it because we found a nice restaurant about a 10 minute walk from the ship. The Waterfront Warehouse served the best seafood chowder and lobster I've ever had, and I grew up in New England. Friendly staff and outstanding beer to boot! Can't wait to get back there. The food on board was a hit or miss situation. We liked the Garden Cafe Buffet, beautiful setting in the front of the ship on Deck 16. Good variety but nowhere as close to Celebrity. Ate at the following Specialty Restaurants: Ocean Blue, oysters on the half shell were great but the main meal of sauteed scallops was nothing special; Cagney's Steakhouse, Surf & Turf and the Prime Rib were excellent; Teppanyaki's, the chef chopped and cooked everything right there, excellent Oriental cuisine. Great running commentary by the chef!; Los Lobos, Some the best authentic Mexican cuisine we've ever had. Guacamole salsa made fresh at you table, the chef stopped by to make sure everything was just so. Enchilada's to die for, just amazing. Highly recommend this place.; Margaritaville on the Deck 16, if you love delicious margarita's and Cheeseburgers in Paradise, this is your place to be. When we went for lunch, the Captain and his three senior officer's were having lunch and they looked content. Loved the overhead electric heaters to keep you toasty. The Savor and Taste had excellent atmosphere, but the food was just average. With twenty something restaurants on board, we were just a little disappointed. The entertainment was exceptional. We saw Jersey Boy's in Las Vegas in 2011 and the group of performers on the Bliss put on a high energy version that was perfect. A must see. The Beatles cover band was very good, doing songs from their early years, the Sgt Pepper's era and the Abbey Road years. The Cavern Club was small and cozy so get there early for all shows if you want a seat and table. We arrived an hour and a half before the show, sixth in line and the line got very long. If you loved the Beatles, well worth the wait. The highlight of the voyage for us was going under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge (all lit up) into New York City at 1:00am and then passing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Most of the passengers were up and about to see this. To top off the trip, we docked at Pier 88 in downtown Manhattan next to the aircraft carrier Intrepid, with an SR-71 on it's deck. Overall a very enjoyable voyage with just a few minor gripes on our part, but I'm sure Norwegian will correct within a few sailings. Customs at the Port of Manhattan was smooth and professional, all the Customs Officer's were friendly and helpful. Read Less

Chose for the itinerary plus the fact of being a new big ship Cabin 14th deck balcony had excellent views. TONS of storage and well designed spaces. Shower did however leak onto the floor. Decor was interesting, sophisticated. Has call buttons to alert staff to make up rroom or do not disturb. Food was the star. EVERYWHERE you went the food was outstanding. Willing to even endure the buffet lines due to quality of the buffer, including excellent Indian and Asian dishes to rival any Asian restaurant. Main dining room very noisy unless you sat at one of the areas with a lower ceiling. We preferred the other two included restaurants TASTE and SAVOR which were essentially twins with slightly different color schemes. Food was consistently first class and varied every day. Went to BISTRO but service was so slow we missed seeing HAVANA show which only played 2 nites. Cagneys was just so so-food was cold and somewhat indifferent for the price. Japanese steak house could be fun depending on the energy of your chef but food was great. Cons-gym was tiny, entertainment cheesy except for the Jersey Boys and UPTOWN Read Less

This cruise was the 15 night initial repositioning leg from Miami to LA through the Panama Canal. May 10-25 2018. The ship is amazing. The luxury and decoration is top notch. The staff and other service workers were so nice, kind, professional. The food was the best I have ever eaten than any other cruise. (Except they didn't have a lobster night). I was impressed with the variety of food. There was foods of all kinds and nationalities, vegetarian, sugar-free, low-cal, etc. The entertainment was very high quality for a cruise ship - not the typical Las Vegas 'wannabe' type show. There were good comedians and also the Jersey Boys, Uptown, and Jeanine Carimielo were incredible. Havana was good but was in need of more 'pre-production, scripting, plot, etc.' (if you can say that for a live show) in order to have an actual story line. But the production itself was good. The Beatles impersonation group however was a bit disappointing. It was pretty clear that this was their first stint at sea. They appeared pretty nervous to be performing. Our hotel staff was wonderful. The room was cleaned every day at least twice and even three times sometimes. Nightly towel animals are a nice fun little touch as well. It is worth noting however, that NCL is more expensive than most other cruise lines. The additional fees for the Laser Tag, Race Track, bowling, and other on board activities can get costly and add up quickly. There is no mini golf, or sport court area. There are only two ping-ping tables. Also the Laser Tag is only open a couple hours in the evening and the deck completely locked up during the rest of the day. It would be nice that the deck at least could be open for browsing around for sight seeing on sea days. Note that a couple of the decks of the ship are for 'first-class' services only and require additional fees to access. (Think of first class vs coach class on an airplane) The Haven and Vibe decks require extra cost. The spa area is also contracted through a third party company and not directly with NCL and therefore requires additional fees to access. The spa area has a maximum of 120 people to access so when there are 4000 folks on board, it is important to get your reservations the first day. When purchasing your spa access, it is an all or nothing type of package. You purchase for every day of the cruise, you cannot purchase for a one day pass access. To have to pay extra for 90% of the restaurants also was unexpected, considering that they serve pretty much the same food as can be found in the main dining room and cafeteria buffet areas. When cruising on a ship of this caliber, the WiFi should simply be included as internet access is a necessity in today's world. The current cost is too expensive. If not, at least make the social connection package included. As for the fitness area -- it is much too small to accommodate 4000 people on board. Fitness machines were always occupied. Also the fact that there was additional cost to attend any of the spin class, aerobics, kick-boxing, etc. was not too pleasing. Additionally, it is worth noting that there is no locker room or changing area for the fitness area. No one wants to see 'sweaty bodies' walking through the other public areas to get back to their rooms to clean up. Reservations for all the shows could be better handled or explained prior to the cruise. To have to wait in line with several hundred people for a couple hours the first day just to reserve our 'shows' for the rest of the week caused most folks to have an initial sour attitude that was difficult to be around. Overall, however, we are quite happy with our cruise (once it got going after the first days hectic events) and the service we received. Read Less

We were looking for a cruise in May that was going through the new Panama Canal and our travel agent suggested this one. We arrived at the embarkation port prior to the time they said their reception area would be open. We were allowed to enter and walked through the registration process with almost no wait. We waited for about an hour upstairs and them were allowed on the ship. Were able to use our cabins much earlier than on other ships. I wear disappointed with the entertainment as there were multiple smaller venues and reservations were almost required. I thought we needed reservations for all the restaurants but found out the since we eat early we rarely had to wait. The food at all restaurants was good. Early in the trip the wait between courses was long, but as the days went by that was improved. Cabin Service was good but our cabin steward was either slower than normal or he had more cabins to serve. Most of the time the cabin was not cleaned up before noon. We were disappointed to find out that two ports pwere removed from the itinerary about two weeks before we left and one was added. The shore excursions were in general very good. Family traveling with us were disappointed that one excursion did not state that at the first stop at a beach the boat didn’t bring us to shore. The second stop did take us to shore. Also one stop required us to take a shuttle to the town we were supposed to dock at. And, the shuttle was $15 per person. When our party complained, in each case a refund of part of all of the fee was provided. Read Less

My wife and I are seasoned cruisers and wanted to experience a fairly new ship without all the dings and odors of other ships we have been on. This was a beutiful ship with a terrific service crew with the 3rd leg out of Miami going over to Los Angeles through the Panama Canal. Neither of us have been through the Panama Canal before, so we were really looking forward to this cruise. Here are our thoughts regarding this adventure. I will start with the Pro's and follow up with the Con's needing some attention. Pro's: Like swimming pool seating Like the waterfront for walking Like the two swimming pools and depth from 5.7 to of 6.5 feet Like the shower and pressure Loved The Observation lounge and windows Liked the singing group Phil & Keisha Duo except Phil needs to cut back on the Elvis sets Liked the Atrium seating to view a gigantic video board and to watch entertainment The Teppanyaki restaurant was set up very well and the food was plentiful and delicious. The Teppanyaki cook could be a comedian he was that good Great view coming into Cartagena Columbia. Peacocks, monkeys, toucans and ant eaters were some of the animals experienced. Super plant growth near the port. I have to say, the electic go carts were fun and sturdy. My wife and I raced each other and she let me win. We came in 35 and 36 seconds respectfully. Cowboy is the bartender in the Caverns outside bar on the waterfront. Great bartender. Jim Badger was the Piano Player in the District House and was very good and funny. He will pick on people in the audience. The singer Jenene Caramelo was very very good in the theater. The embarkation was really fast and easy Con's: The Latitudes Club representative was non-existent. As Platinum members, we could not contact anyone to handle questions regarding benefits. There was a card in the room speaking of the benefits, but not an explanation as to how to receive them. For example, each member gets 30 minutes of free internet for their use. But to receive the free minutes, you need to go to the internet manager to have the minutes post to your account associated to your cabin. The line was a mile long to see the two internet people to turn on the minutes. It took all of thirty seconds of face time after standing in line for thirty minutes. Not cool. They could have a better way. Also, the ship was not using any of the NCL Apps that you may have on your electronic device. The internet manager indicated that it is coming, but not functional at this time. We had to go to the Nextcruise desk to get info on Captains Latitudes party and for reservations for behind the scenes tours. They do not make it easy for Latitude members. We went to sign up for the behind the scenes tour, but it was sold out and put our names on a waiting list after only being on the ship for two hours. Even though they advertise concierge service which would have been nice to make all of the reservations, it appears non-existent. Also No information on departure area for Latitude members. Not to be completely negative, I do appreciate the two specialty dining and laundry services for Platinum members which was presented on a card in the room. They pride themselves on the latest electronics, but they have a long way to go. The electronic boards in the Public Areas to make reservations did not respond very well while attempting to use it. We did make one dinner reservation before it locked up, but failed at other dinner reservations and entertainment reservations. The TV electronics were also poor to use as a way to make reservations or to view our calendar of events. The calendar only showed one shore excursion made at home before the cruise. It did not reflect dinner reservations once made. I can’t reinforce how far they are behind on usable technology for cruisers. There should be messaging to the cabins and a useable interactive TV to make reservations and communicate with departments. FreeStyle cruising has gotten very lose as to attire on this ship. It use to mean when you want to eat, not what you where to eat in dining areas. The chairs in the theater are very uncomfortable. Cagney’s Restaurant was disappointing. The pro’s include the tuna tartar was exceptional and the prime rib which they indicated was a pound, but it sure seemed larger than that. I left about a quarter of it because I could not finish it. It was very tender and tasty also. The con’s include mediocre busboy service, the mashed potatoes had too much garlic. The lobster bisque was very bland. The wine glasses were huge and when you ordered a wine selection, they brought an individual carafe which filled only the bottom of the glass. Also, the whipped butter they served with the bread was not that good. The outdoor speaker systems on the ship are awful. You could not hear messages when announced on the 8th deck as well as the pool area. Another con is not having the restaurant menu’s available on the TV so as to make decisions as to where to eat. In the main dining room, The Manhattan Room, they were crowded and seemed to borrow servers from other specialty restaurants. The reservation system on the TV’s indicate the restaurants are full, but when you look in, there appears to be plenty of room. People make reservations and then do not act on them I guess. Charge $5 for reservations not acted on to solve the problem of blanket reservations. We got a phone message that are specialty restaurant Ocean Blue will cost us an extra $18/person even though it was covered under are specialty restaurant package. That really sucked calling the day before our reservation to let us know it would cost more. We cancelled our reservation. The ventilation in the theater is bad. It does not move enough cool air for the large number of people, which I believe is about 700 people capacity. I know it seems like there are a lot of con's, but the pro's helped balance out the benefits of being on this cruise. By the way, the Panama Canal was cool, even if it took us all day to work our way through it. Read Less

The Bliss is a new ship from Norwegian. We wanted to cruise through the Panama Canal from Florida to Los Angeles. The ship is huge and impressive. We had a balcony stateroom near the front of the ship which was convenient for going everywhere. Overall we had a nice time, the biggest criticism is the lack of activities planned for sea days. If we loved the pool or sun, I guess we would have been happier. The movies were old that they showed. They needed more to do. The food was very good but many times too exotic for my tastes. They had many extra restaurants onboard which charged. We only ate in one, and many nights we just ate upstairs in the cafe. Service was very good when we did eat in ship dining rooms. The excursions were typical for cruise ships. We were very lucky on one. We went to Antigua in Guatemala. We were on a bus quite near the Fuego Volcano. If it had been a couple of weeks later, I don't know what would have happened. We saw all the villages underneath the volcano. I now wonder how those poor people made out. The nicest port we went to was Puerto Vallarta in Mexicp. It was beautiful. We liked that excursion the most. The best thing about the cruise was the entertainment. The Jersey Boys show was first class and very well done. Also other acts were excellent. Our cabin steward kept the room nicely. He was very professional and friendly. This was the second time we have been on Norwegian. We are frequent cruisers with other ships and would go with them again for the right deal. I am not a fan of big ships so I would not return to the Bliss. Read Less

The cruise was chosen by us due to the Panama Canal transit, which was a a highlight—from daylight to dark that particular day we had fascinating views from our balcony, and were blessed with blue skies. Since we live in the tropics in Australia, the scenery in the five countries visited, six shore excursions, contained no surprises in regard to landscape, weather and crops, but the third-world life-style certainly was different. So the trip was educational. The mighty ship itself, with its well-trained and happy crew, catered for various age groups. On our anniversary, at the Italian restaurant, we were surprised with cake and candles and a song, which brought me to tears. We had made no particular arrangements for this. Very touching to have young people from Indonesia and the Philippines wishing us well... a most worthwhile trip to recall for many years... One low-light was queueing for an extended period for Box Office reservations for Jersey Boys (promoted heavily) before the ship even left Miami. We actually saw the show two weeks later, so why the rush before we were even at sea. Not a good beginning, but it improved...lots... Read Less

Chose this cruise because a tour agency was offering a great price for an escorted cruise package. Having someone else take care of the arrangements is a must when traveling with my elderly parent. Also, the itinerary was less port intensive with a sea day or two in between each port. If you have status with NCL, embarkation is always a breeze. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Port was a very different experience. It seemed that it took a while for the tour group to get called to start the walk down into the custom area. When we got there, we saw custom agents having to use cell phones to take photos of arrivals. Labor intensive to say the least, and the customs employees handled themselves very professionally. The exercise layout for the Bliss is a little strange. Deck 7 outside has the tenders/ life boats and it only goes partway up and down the side of the ship. Deck 8 is the waterfront that is split with chairs / lounges and walking area. It was thoughtful of the dining staff to provide coffee/hot water and pastries around the waterfront bar areas for the cruisers enjoying the outside scenery. The walking area does not go around the front of the ship so walkers have to cut through the inside of the ship to continue walking. The Atrium stairway was beautiful to look at but not very functional to walk down. Everyone was using it as a photo op, but it was precarious to walk down. The tube ride did not have enough water flowing because people noticed that mostly men only made it through the entire ride. Women (more clothing) barely made it up the first hill and most had to be rescued after sliding back down. The inflatable tube flume ride was fun but had to carry up the tandem raft. If you go, get the single inner tube because you ride faster and you can experience the clear Plexiglas and think you're going to fall. The casino is huge and certain machines were making people happy. There were two ATM/Voucher/Change machines in the casino. Used the machine to break my bigger bills but it was out of service after the fourth day, sucks. I loved the set up of the Locals Bar and Grill which overlooks the atrium area. Found myself up there many a nights listening to Phil and Keysha, who was my companion's favorite group! Also kudos to the staff, they provided excellent service around the whole area. There was one handicap gentleman who hanged out in the area and the staff helped him get to the bar chair for the entertainment. Also the bartenders were great performers and back up singers for the groups. And finally, there was this one guy who helped the elevators after the bliss theater show ended. He'd get the passengers on the elevators as soon as possible and help with directions. Great staff. If Silas and his staff were cloned, then NCL would have the best fleet entertainment division in the industry! Wii Dancing with Alex was fun. I know Alex will get assigned to be a cruise director on a ship soon. Hope to see Uptown and Jersey Boys preform again. We went to see Uptown each night they preformed and were wowed by their energy and musicality. Phil and Keysha had their ship groupies following them to the different venues. Read Less

When I chose this cruise, I wanted the experience of going all the way through the Panama Canal rather than just the first set of locks to the lake then back. To add to the itinerary, I got the experience of a brand new ship as well as the largest ship in the Norwegian family. I certainly was not disappointed. From the ports we visited to the activities on board to the entertainment and activities and dining, it was a once-in-a lifetime experience. On this ship, Norwegian added four additional speciality dining possibilities that I have not seen on previous cruises: Los Lobos, a Mexican eatery; Q, a barbecue place; Ocean Blue, seafood; and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. These four places added to Cagney's Steakhouse, Teppanyaki (Japanese hibachi), LaCucina (Italian) and Le Bistro (French) plus other smaller venues that sold desserts, chocolate and international food items. They even had a Starbucks on board that made my day. In additional to the buffet, they had three main dining rooms and a casual grill that offered "free" meals if you didn't want to pay extra for the speciality venues. Entertainment was boundless from a Beatles band, the Jersey Boys, several comedians, and other variety show possibilities. The only downside to all this was the enormous amount of people (4,000ish) that also wanted to see the shows and eat the food. Because I am limited in mobility, my biggest complaint was the extremely poor organization of embarkation and disembarkation for wheelchair assistance. There has got to be a better way of getting disabled passengers on and off the boat rather than waiting for such a long time.

We wanted to take an Inaugural cruise on a brand new ship and go someplace new and different than past vacations. The ship itself was amazing in the way it maneuvers in and out of narrow channels and into the various ports. Much different and better than the old days when tugs had to bring in and port ships. Perhaps most impressive was the way this huge ship was able to spin around in the narrow channel so all aboard the vessel could get a clear view of the Sawyer Glacier. And the Master captain's handling of the ship throughout the ice flows was deliberate and impressive as well. The Beatle act in the recreated Liverpool Cavern club too was great, especially their final performance on the final day in the main theater. The shows like Jersey Boys and Havana were tops. Food excellent. Staff well prepared and kind. Although there were many signs posted about the need to wear shoes in places like the main observation lounge, there was no enforcement of the rule and many people removed shoes and socks and walked the rugs and sat on the floor in the front open spaces and made many people take notice of the unsanitary conditions they were creating.

This helped us fill our bucket list to visit Alaska. The staff was wonderful the entire trip. I had a day of feeling motion sickness and the staff gave me great tips and took care of me. We did day trips and had a blast. Saw eagles and whales. We ate great fresh seafood and had energetic shopping. The views cannot be described as amazing and breathtaking do not even begin to do it justice. . The food was also amazing. Even the "basic" complimentary areas had wonderful food and great service. Even in the complimentary dining we had options of burgers, steak, lamb, Vietnamese food, etc. We did specialty dining twice and had wonderful steaks and great French meals. Even the buffet was up to date and quickly filled. I loved afternoon tea and snacks on the observation deck. Perfect for the days I was too full for a full meal. My first cruise a few years ago ( on another line) left me thinking all cruises were terrible. Finally I got convinced to give cruising another try and told to try Norwegian. Thank you Norwegian Cruise line for restoring my faith. This will not be our last cruise! Read Less

My NCL agent suggested this new ship debuting June 2018 and we booked. We arrived the day before the cruise. Liked the close location of the port to the main road and there are many hotels, restaurants and things to do nearby including the Pike Place Market. Embarkation was easy. Lovely big ship. Comfortable cabins and beds. Great room steward Jommel. Love that the casino has a smoking room so others don't get bothered by the smoke. The food onboard was very good. The maiden voyage of the Bliss was completely sold out so the buffet didn't have enough seats to accommodate everyone so we had to go outside or downstairs to the Observation Lounge with our plates to eat sometimes if it was full. It was difficult to make reservations for some specialty restaurants and for the shows because there were too many passengers wanting reservations. The Jersey Boys show was very good, shorter than the Broadway version but very entertaining. Havana Nights was okay. The hugely advertised go-kart amenity price went up the first week from $7 to $9.95. Even with Appointments the wait is approximately 90 minutes. It's a good ride but I highly recommend that only teenagers and up with driving experience do this. Younger kids can ride double with parents and they should. Kids that can't handle the go-karts keep others from enjoying the speed because once someone crashes or stops everyone has to stop and it really kills the momentum and holds up all the other people waiting. Laser tag also has a fee and was very disorganized in terms of the line and waiting time and people claiming to have been there before others that were there before them. People would come earlier than their appointment times also and go in before others with the actual appointment time. As I said before the ship was full and bar service was a bit slow. Not enough waiters especially because of included beverage packages. All the shore excursions I took were okay but there really wasn't enough time after and during the tours to do any shopping or walking around before we had to get back to the ship. The Mt Roberts tram had over 1 hr waiting time to go on and over 40 minutes waiting to return. Ridiculous. We only had 10 minutes to spend up there before having to get back in line. Was a waste of time and money. The view was spectacular however for the few minutes we were up there. Should have skipped the tram and stayed longer at the Mendenhall Glacier which was fantastic. We had a party of six with 4 adults, 1 preteen and 1 teenager. We all had a great time and the kids were very happy. The scenery was spectacular. I would cruise this ship again with a different itinerary. Read Less

We booked our cruise a year in advance, so needless to say, I had plenty of time to explore Seattle online. I contacted the Chamber or commerce and asked for brochures, magazines, advertisements, etc... I wanted to know where to go, how to get around and the best places to eat. When I arrived, I felt like I already knew the city. We purchased the City Pass and within 48 hours, got to see so much of the sights. I would definitely recommend getting them. We were on the very first Alaskan sailing of the Bliss (June 2 - 9, 2018). The ship was so large. It took me almost the full week to know how to get around. But as time went on, I explored as much as I could and found some fantastic spots for viewing that weren't crowded. Our cabin was 10758. It was nice and quiet. With as many stateroom this ship had, I honestly expected to cross more people in the halls by their rooms, but it was just the opposite. I hardly saw anyone in the halls. Everyone one was out and about in the center of the ship where all the activities were. The dining was great. Never had to wait for a table. We made reservations for most of our evening dinners, but breakfast and lunch was a drop in. My favorite was The Local. We also enjoyed The Taste and Savor. The food was good. I ate everything I ordered. The portions were a good amount too. Not too much, not too little. You could always order more if you were still hungry. I was disappointed that we didn't get a choice for a lobster meal. Now I can't say it was the best food I ever had or that I would say "you've got to try this"... but it was average. I did have a steak at the Le Bistro and that was probably the best meal I ate all week. Stay out of the buffet area unless you plan to eat standing up. Not enough tables and some families just parked themselves there for hours because they had a great view. So they sit there all day and take up all the tables with their stuff not even eating most of the time. I enjoyed the entertainment. My favorite was the Jersey Boys and Beatlemania. Havanna was just ok... Maybe I was just tired when I saw it. And Prohibition was a lot of fun. My son enjoyed watching the movies in the atrium and Bliss theater. We tried our turn on the Go Carts. It was fun, but for $10.00 a ride, we only did them once. I felt that as much as we spent on this cruise, they could have given everyone a complimentary ride on the go carts or laser tag. Maybe give them a choice. We were frustrated to find out that you can only ride them with a reservation. So, we had to wait two days to ride them. That was very annoying. They didn't even have a standby line. No reservation, no ride! The casino was a lot of fun too. And it wasn't crazy crowded there either. I was so happy to see they had a closed in smoking section just for the smokers. Very smart! The bartenders was super nice. Always friendly, making jokes, and having fun with the passengers. The dancers at the dance parties were also a favorite of mine. We also went to the Karaoke. Next time, please put the Karaoke in an adult only room. We had some pre-teens and teenagers singing and it was the worst thing every. So many just left the room because of them. The Bliss has an observation area. I was extremely upset with the number of people sleeping on the sofa's with their feet everywhere. They were asleep and not even looking at the view. I couldn't even find a seat to sit in. It was nasty and frustrating. I put my shoe up to tie my shoe one time and I was asked to not put my shoes on the chair. OK.. my fault. But people could sleep with bare feet and nothing was said to them! Take away the sofas and loungers and just put in chairs. We took two excursions. Booked a train ride through NCL and a rain forest hike from a private party. The hike was my favorite. There was four to five ships at most ports and needless to say, the towns, restaurants, and bars were extremely crowded. It was hard to get around and made it hard to enjoy the ports. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Getting off the ship was a long line and took a good bit of time. But we made conversation with some of the others around us and time passed quickly. I traveled with two young adults and one teenager. The ship has stuff for the teenager, but my two young adults (20 years old), didn't have a place for them to mingle with other's their age. I felt there should have been some kind of social club for 18 - 21 year olds. My daughter was desperate to find someone else around her age. I would definitely take this trip again, but next time I believe the smaller ships are going to be more my style. Also, as much as I love my children, I feel the Alaskan Cruise is really more for couples and not for large families. Read Less

The ship is enormous. Lots of activities on board. There is a go kart track and mini golf on top deck. The entertainment in The Cave is amazing. Siglo the band was excellent. We went back everytime they played. There was a Beatles group that was wonderful. A prohibition show which you need to drink. Don't reserve if you don't. Havana the musical was good. No problem getting into the shows if you book early. On the other hand if you want to book the better restaurants make sure you book pre cruise. They fill up so fast. Many people complained. The cabins I thought were a bit smaller on this boat compared to Breakaway. The service was great. Employees couldn't have been nicer. Ports were good, but had to be back too early. Wanted to do more in the ports. Because the ship is so large , we were docked far in Skagway. There were many children, but because the ship was so ;large i wasn't a problem. Book exclusions early as well. There is limited space, but there are taxis on the pier. Read Less

Cruise overall was great. Buffet dining was amazing, ALTHOUGH we wanted to try a PAID meal, but everything books up the first day you are onboard. The paid dining should be open more hours (even at lunch) to give others more chances to eat. Go Kart Track should be open more hours (especially while at sea) and $5.00 is a fair price for it. $10 is a little high for what you get. Laser Tag should be open more hours - we weren't able to try it out. We finally got reservations for it, but it started to sprinkle rain and they cancelled Laser Tag because it doesn't have a roof on it It is also only open in the evenings, which is not a good plan. Silent Disco. - I loved it, BUT again, it wasn't available every night, and only had a limited set of headphones. There isn't a reason why this can't be offered during the day for an hour and half session or multiple sessions in the evening. Jersey Boys - Took my wife, and 2 kids (13 and 10). Within first 20 mins the F word was used 3 time. So we sent our kids to do something else. Within a few mins it was used again, so we left as well as others in the theatre. This should be advertised that it is NOT a Family Show. Read Less

My husband and I cruised the Bliss for our anniversary. First, all the great things. Embarkation in Seattle was seamless and quick. The ship has a "new house" smell. It's immaculate and new. The crew was constantly polishing. Our balcony room was smartly designed, clean and comfy, plenty of room for 2. Largish shower with plenty of hot water. There are so many light controls in the cabin and from both sides of the bed! Everything from tiny reading lights to lights that illuminate behind the bed softly, to various overheads. (I love mood lighting so this was a real nice feature for me). There are phone charger outlets on each side as well. Smart and state-of-the-art. Our steward was attentive and friendly. He made us cute towel animals :) Great fitness room, and plenty of activities to keep us entertained during sea days. Observation Deck: The best part of this ship in our opinions was the gorgeous observation deck. We never stopped marveling at how wonderful it was to watch the spectacular scenery go by in a climate controlled environment. Unlike other reviewers, we did not find this area overly crowded, we always managed to find seats up by the windows. I think there was one time when there was going to be an audio lecture on the glaciers as we passed by them, and the deck was exceedingly crowded, however, we grabbed a couple of cocktails and watched the beautiful scenery from our balcony. Shows: Jersey Boys is a must see, but get reservations before you cruise as it does fill up. The performance was on par with those we have seen in Broadway. Do not miss the Beatles performances in the Cavern Club!! My husband and I are both musicians and Beatles fans, and folks, these guys are good. We loved the Sgt. Peppers show so much, we went back for Abbey Road and Beatlemania. The Cavern club is an exact replica of Liverpool, but again, get there at least 30 minutes early for a great little table up close. We also saw Havana!, but to be honest, we didn't really like it. Or maybe we just didn't get it. The dancing and music was cool, but neither of us really got the storyline. Wouldn't do that one again, but entertainment is subjective of course. The not so great things: The Garden Café. Strap on your gear because you will be fighting with your life for a plate of mediocre food. Then you will fight again to find a table. Beware of people who will sit right down at your table while you are up filling your plate, push your belongings aside and refuse to move when you return (yes, this actually happened to us). I got so stressed at the pushy people that I let my husband know I would never be eating in that cattle call again, the food was in no way worth the battle. And I place the blame for this squarely on Norwegian for not planning adequate seating for the number of guests. Good news though -- Taste and Savor are both complimentary dining rooms that have wait staff and plenty of seating. No stress, no crazy rude people. The specialty restaurants are okay, solid B+. Constant Upselling: "Free Bingo" is not free. We get a sense that Norwegian is trying to trick us all the time with cute little cons. Like announcing "Free Bingo" with a cash jackpot, only to find out when you get there that the "Free" part is one free card when you spend something like $49 on the first two. (don't quote me on the price, it was something underhanded, that's all I remember) You get a sense that they are constantly nickel and diming you on everything from photos to spa treatments. It all felt very embarrassing and tacky, and I think it cheapens Norwegian's image. Overall though, our cruise was a wonderful experience. Alaska is the bomb. I would encourage anyone to cruise the Bliss. Read Less

Overall this cruise was amazing. The gigantic boat was beautiful and was everything we could have imagined...sort of. Here are a few tips: This cruise is not made for kids under the age of 3. Yes, they have a guppies play area but it is not a drop-off while parents have some time to themselves. Yes the cruise line is still "working out" the details of this. I was disappointed when booking this cruise that this wasn't mentioned and in the case of this I probably would have waited another year to go that way my son would be 3 and could go to splash academy. With that being said, I asked for a crib for my son since he isn't able to sleep in a bed by himself yet. We reserved a balcony room with a couch so my other child sleeping with us had a place to stay as well. When we folded out the crib there was absolutely no room for us to move around the crib to get to the bathroom. Again if we were notified about this at the time we booked the crib/ reserved the room, we might have opted for purchasing a bigger room. Reserve go-karts and laser tag the day you get on the boat. Also there is a height restriction for the single go-karts (we booked the go-karts for a time thru the box office and when we got in line to do so 3/4 kids couldn't ride in the single karts due to being too short...and they only run the double go karts for one hour each day). We went and complained since we weren't told they had height restrictions and the guy running the activity apologized but couldn't do anything about it since this was the last day we were on the ship. To make it up to us he booked the family on a last minute laser tag (which when we tried to signup was fully booked the whole cruise so initially our family wasn't going to be able to do that as well). The excursions were great... I would highly recommend the Misty Fjords in Ketchikan and the train ride in Skagway. We did some whale watching in Juneau and it was good, but you can see the same thing from your ship! One complaint we had for the excursions is we didn't get enough time in the port to do souvenir shopping. We had a little time in Ketchikan but the rest of the time we were behind and had to run to the boat. I wish they made their stops longer (like for instance Juneau instead of leaving at 1 it could leave at 5). There was some decent entertainment on the boat. My family (without me because I was watching my son) went to Jersey Boys and said it was really good. Other then that we hit up a cover band playing all sorts of music most nights. There isn't much night life on this boat as the median age for this cruise is 47. Overall the staff was very friendly and helped in anyway they could. My middle child loved the Splash Academy and made a friend with one of her councilors. She cried at the end of the cruise because she had so much fun and didn't want to leave. My teenager liked the teen hangout area as well and met quite a few people there! When booking your room on the ship... consider staying in the aft as those elevators are rarely used. Our room was by the mid ship elevators and we had a hard time getting on them because they would be full ALL THE TIME! Since we had a stroller it sometimes took us 10 minutes to get on. We would have gone upstairs but we would have to go 6-7 flights just to get to where we needed to be. Pack warm.. we didn't wear shorts at all and sometime we were in a tee shirt but pack layers as Alaska weather is unexpected. Overall it was a great experience, saw some beautiful countryside and wildlife and got to experience seeing a glacier, but I probably won't be going on this cruise again until I retire! We have traveled on the Norwegian Escape and that by far was my more favorite cruise out of the two. Read Less

Just returned from a 7 day cruise on the bliss, ship was very nice as it new but dinning can be an issue, you must make reservation to get the dinning times you want, buffet is very crowded not enough seating and speciality dinning cost extra, go carts are very busy could only get on 1 time and laser tag is the same lucky to get in one session. Food was good but not great had the turkey medallions but did not taste anything like turkey. This ship brings in an extra 4000 people to ports which are crazy and therefore most port calls where too short, too busy you must schedule your tours early. Almost every port had 4 ships docked so it was extremely busy. Used the new airline boarding pass system, all worked well but our bags where late bu that was on American which has poor baggage performance. All infall Alaska is great , this was our second trip and if we go again it will be on a smaller ship.Fitness center was very busy as well. Read Less

Although we greatly enjoyed our cruise on the Norwegian Bliss, we were disappointed to see that many activities had an up charge. Racing - $10 charge. Laser tag - $5 charge. Prohibition show - $20 charge. Ocean Blu - $18 charge in addition to the speciality dining package. Margaritaville - $20 charge per person for lunch/dinner; you were not allowed to share and there was more than enough for 2 people. Yoga - $12 charge. Spin class - $20 charge. Since the racing and laser tag were advertised as being the newest attraction on the fleet, we were surprised to discover there was a charge. The ports in Alaska were fabulous. We got on and off the ship quickly. It was well organized. We went on the White Pass Railway in Skagway. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the scenery was breathtaking. In Ketchikan we attended the Lumberjack show which was very entertaining. We walked around in Victoria, but did not find the city at all interesting. It was a wonderful cruise on a beautiful new ship. We enjoy sailing with Norwegian but are unhappy that they have begun to charge for most activities on board. Read Less

This was my 6th cruise with NCL. It was a great experience, however, some of the things I've come to expect from them were missing - the white hot party, chocolate night, the great photo package deals, more family friendly shows in the theatre. On the plus side, this new ship offered new experiences and places to eat - laser tag, go cars, coco's, Starbucks. Unlike prior cruises where one had to search the photo shop for pictures taken during the cruise, each stateroom is assigned a photo folder number. As photos are taken, guests give room numbers and the photos are placed in the assigned folders. I loved how close the ship got to the glacier. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Suggestions for NCL - look at opening more varied itineraries, for example more eastern and southern Caribbean from Florida. Bring back the fun/good stuff - the white hot party, chocolate night, the great photo package deals, more family friendly shows in the theatre. Review the pricing structure or offer more included items to justify the price. I would definitely sail NCL again especially if they have an itinerary that I haven't done from Florida. Read Less

We wanted to do the Alaska cruise to see the sights. The ship and staff was great, and we wanted for nothing. The bar staff made great drinks, except for Maltings Whiskey Bar, which for some reason kept making my Crown and diet wrong. After two like that, I just went to other bars without any problems. Maybe it was a language thing, or maybe the gal bartender just didn't listen. Our balcony cabin was nice, though it seemed a bit smaller than the balcony cabin we had on a freedom class vessel with Royal Caribbean. The buffet was good and consistent but not over the top. The specialty dining we did was great however. We did Q's, Ocean Blue, and Cagneys. Our party of seven had only one gripe regarding our dining. The house coffee was dreadful! We all laughed about it each morning, and drank juice with breakfast, then rode the elevator down to deck six to Starbucks for a decent coffee. Really, Norwegian, you surely can do better with another coffee supplier! The entertainment onboard was great. My wife and I had seen Jersey Boys in Las Vegas years ago (great show there) and the cast on the Bliss was on par with Vegas. We enjoyed the Beatles show on the last day too. The theater on board was very nice! The various entertainers in the bars, atrium, etc. were all pretty good. The service staff was very good throughout. Our itinerary was good with plenty of activity choices. We wished we would have had more time in Victoria however, as it is one of our favorite vacation places. Read Less

Our Grand Daughter just graduated from the University of Hawaii Laboratory High School and she selected this cruise. We joined her along with her parents to celebrate her accomplishments. The restaurants were great, the food was delicious and we enjoyed the variety offered. The daily activities that was provided kept the cruise enjoyable. Due to the rainy weather our time slot to play the laser tag was canceled. Just wished that they notified us sooner rather than having to go all the way up there to find out . We could have been doing something else. The water slide was shut down to so we didn’t have a chance to experience that. Otherwise we had a lovely time. We will recommend this cruise to everyone and we look forward to another cruise with you on this beautiful cruise line. We had a wonderful experience, a relaxing and comfortable cabin and lasting memories. Read Less
