So just a heads up - we won this cruise and it originally was supposed to go out to sea and then back. We were told that due to Port Laws it couldn’t do that but there is some question as to whether that was the fact or if the number of indivduals who requested day passes made it non-viable to go anywhere. At first we were not really impressed with this as we could not get off of the ship and all shops and the casino were closed. They made up for this by making everything all inclusive including, speciality dining, alchol, and all attractions to ensure we got a good overall feel.
As this was a “get to know” the boat tour I think Norwegian did well - with a major surprise to us all on the Saturday night....more on that later. We were travelling as a couple but kept our eyes open for those things families and singles would also like.
This was the first visit to NYC by the Bliss on it’s way to Seattle for the Alaska season. She had just crossed from Europe to North America so we think a lot of the kinks in the operations would have been ironed out by then.
Smaller than expected room for a balcony (compared to others we have been on). No extra space - less than a foot from end of bed to wall. Good use of multi functional furniture (vanity cube with hard top which is removable to use as a seat or little table and storage under couch).
Very clean lines so less chance of hurting yourself bumping into things - though sometimes can be a challenge to find opening to open cupboards as no handles - just cut outs.
Poorly designed closed - indent at the front means about 6 inches unusable as hanger space as hanger wider than space.
