Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

I selected this cruise for a look at the new ship, Bliss, and the warmth of the Mexican Riviera. I got only 1/2 of that promise fulfilled since Hurricane Wila prevented the Bliss from sailing south. So, while I saw the ship, I also saw San Francisco (I live 50 miles away and it is no big deal...or any deal to me), San Diego where I was stationed in the military, and Ensenada, which a friend called "Tijuana by the Sea".

Pluses included:

1) Awesome Observation Lounge on the Bliss. Beautiful, not crowded and affording great views.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BA

Nice bathroom/shower. Large balcony. Closet oddly shaped and hard to access. "IKEA" like furnishing. No 110 volt outlets except on the desk area.

Port Reviews

Los Angeles

Decent port for embarkation but nothing special here. It handled the large crowd embarking on the Bliss OI.
