Norwegian Bliss Cruise Review by Chrisdrew1
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom
For a trip to Alaska I thought there should of been an indoor pool and some more indoor activities, I sailed RCL Athem of the seas and they had an indoor pool, indoor sports plex with bumper cars that were not an extra charge , I feel due to the cold and rainy weather in Alaska maybe NCL should of had these accommodations. You really only had 2 days where you could sit by the pool , the Bliss did not have enough hot tubs , they were always packed.
I’ve been on several cruises , this was my 3rd NCL cruise , I go back and forth with RCL and NCL, I find NCL is getting a little cheesy with all the extra charges , I had the drink package but it didn’t include the fresh OJ at breakfast or cappuccinos after dinner . Too many extra charges , I noticed the kids arcade games that were $1 or $2 a game last year are now $1.20 to $2.10 a game , really they had to increase an arcade game by 10 to 20 cents ? I definitely felt nickeled and dimed on this ship .
I would recommend the ship , we had a great time but it’s not an all inclusive I felt once I paid my $6,500 most things should of been included. Alaska is beautiful, the scenery is just amazing , we saw lots of whales from our balcony and while eating at the buffet.

White Pass Scenic RailwayWe liked the train ride , it’s a little long 3 hours round trip but it was fun, beautiful scenery . Not much to do in Skagway , some shops and walking around so taking the train was fun.View All 1,085 White Pass Scenic Railway Reviews
Whale WatchingVictoria was absolutely beautiful. We walked to the harbor and decided last minute to book a whale watching tour with a company that we found while walking, orca spirit , It was the best tour I ever took it was a 3 hour zodiac boat ride and we saw a bunch of whales , our captain Ed was so knowledgeable . I would definitely recommend this tour , it was cheaper than the cruise excursion because we were charged in Canadian money which was a better exchange for US residents .View All 51 Whale Watching Reviews
