Norwegian Bliss Cruise Review by Bokken

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom

This was the worst cruise by far. I had high hopes though, as my first cruise was with Norwegian, which has been the bar in which I measure all cruises; it was very fantastic. This cruise was seemingly doomed from the get go. Getting on the ship was a pain, the porters were not helpful, the food was terrible, the wait staff was hit and miss, the stateroom was way too small for three people, the bathroom was too small for even one person, our toilet was broken the whole cruise, the service desk was slow to help, the service desk was further rude and unwilling to listen to complaints, the NCL reservation staff I spoke to was highly rude and unwilling to listen (told I had to fill out post cruise review), the shows on board were terrible and far too few, there was little to do on the ship that didn’t require a reservation, some items such as laser tag and go carts had a cost and were not indicated as such at the time the reservations were made, the Wi-Fi service was terrible and barely worked, it cost additional to setup my online account after already paying for Wi-Fi access, the elevator access was terrible, there was no onboard self serve laundry, the on board laundry service was slow overall, was impossible to book reservations due to not knowing what was going on on the ship more than a few hours in advance, there was little instruction on disembarking the ship on the final day, getting off the ship was far slower than I have ever experienced. I could go on and on but this was horrible. I’m pretty sure I will never sail with Norwegian again.
