  3. Norwegian Bliss
We loved the Bliss. Spent a lot of time on sea days on our Balcony. Waterfront area was really nice where you could almost walk around the entire ship. Deck 15 observation lounge was spacious and relaxing. Dinner at Q was amazing. Cagney’s was good but not worth it unless on dining plan. Teppenyaki was ok, I have had better experiences at land based Japanese restaurants. Buffets were great and dining rooms had the usual slow dining experience. Shore excursions were fun. Cabo Beach Resort was fun! Sierra Madre tour was interesting but the guide wasn’t the best I have experienced. Yelapas waterfall hike was cool and the beach and snorkeling were fun. Best entertainment on the ride back where they did dancing and lip syncing to music! Premium Wi-Fi was good for streaming video but I am not sure if it was worth the $35 a day. Wi-Fi didn’t pick up out on stateroom cabin balcony. Better get used to crowded elevators. I was on deck 13 and routinely used the stairs to go to deck 5 and back up. Elevators were impossibly long to get on. Self debarkation is the way to go. Arcade package is not all inclusive and is a ripoff. Over half the games in the arcade are ones that dispense tickets for prizes. Those are not included in your package...

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BF 13714
Cabin while small, was well laid out. The Balcony was amazing and had a large overhang to sheild from the sun and rain. Also could see the extended bridge area which was neat to watch the docking procedures.
