Norwegian Bliss Cruise Review by Mike Martin

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

The ship and crew were so great, they took care of everything that we needed or thought about. The food was 5 star, and a lot of options. They kept us entertained during the entire cruise, shows, performers, and games during the cruise. This was our first cruise and we had such a great time with The Bliss and NCl that we are booking a couple of more cruises with NCl in the future. The excursions that we booked through the Bliss, were great, no problems and we didn't feel that we were rushed. One excursion ran a little long getting back to the ship, due to traffic in town, but no worries, didn't have to run to catch the ship. The ship was waiting for us and everyone was so nice and didn't make it seem like it was our fault. We were able to get on the ship within 15 minutes of checking in and were able to get off the ship in about 15 minutes also. Great system for easy on and off the ship, before the cruise and after the cruise and in every port.

Saxman Native Village

Worst show ever, they had no clue that tours were coming. They were not prepared for a tour. Just walked you around in the grass from building to building without showing you anything.

White Pass Scenic Railway

Had a great ride up the White Pass Railroad, very scenic and then on the way back we stopped in Liarsville and had a great Salmon lunch. We then toured The Red Onion, great stop on the tour.

This city only had about 8 taxis and 3 busses to take you into downtown. Was not very organized as they didn't know The Bliss was coming with this many guest on board. If you had booked a tour things were some what smoother.
