  3. Norwegian Bliss
The Norwegian Bliss was chosen for a 'Cousin's Reunion' by our son two years ago. The Bliss was just beginning to be built. The pre-cruise planning and offers were all coordinated well and some 32 members of the family expressed early interest in being on board. Sailing found 14 of us present and each and every one had a wonderful time abroad The Bliss. Varied activities on board as well as shore excursions - whether ship sponsored or individually decided - allowed time together and apart, active or not. Four dinners together were part of the pre-cruise planning and allowed together time. Weather cooperated and the 7 day time frame allowed working younger members of the family to attend this event. Of special note and appreciation was the presence and excellent cuisine of "A Taste of India" in the Garden Cafe. I grew up in India and the opportunity to interact with and use my rusty Hindi with the Chefs and their staff as well as with other Garden Cafe, specialty restaurant & Security staff was heartwarming. To receive a special dessert in our cabin from the Executive Chef, Roger Deepak Gavankar, was a real surprise that was shared with the entire family group that evening after dinner and Jersey Boys. A planned family get together, came together exquisitely thanks to the coordination and planning and design of The Norwegian Bliss. Thank you!

Family Reunion and MORE!

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BD 10226
Not sure of the Cabin category - we had a suite and a balcony.
Cabin was lovely - especially with the bed close to the balcony.
Fernando kept us well supplied and clean and was personable and interactive. His years of experience made this a seamless experience.
