We were on the October 20th sailing of Norwegian Cruise Lines brand new Norwegian Bliss, only 6 months old. We arrived at the cruise terminal at 11 a.m. and by noon we had gone through security, picked up our cruise cards, dropped off our bags, and were comfortably resting in the new huge observation Lounge on the 15th floor. Norwegian has done an excellent job of making the check-in process virtually painless. We enjoyed six of the seven nights in specialty dining restaurants such as La Cucina, Le Bistro, Ocean Blue, Los Lobos, and Cagney's. The two Production shows were fantastic, Havana and the Jersey Boys.
Originally our cruise was going to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas but due to a hurricane going to Mazatlan, the captain diverted the ship North to San Francisco, San Diego, and Ensenada. We really didn't mind because the ship was a great place to bar hop and enjoy the many entertainment venues on board. We especially enjoyed the many venues of live music. Strongly recommended and we can't wait to our next Norwegian Cruise!
Almost all the way forward but we didn't mind the walk. Very comfortable room, bathroom, and balcony.
