In one week they only have 2 shows in the Theater, a 3rd show in the theater was basically a repeat of a short length show that is run in one of the smaller lounges each evening. 3 restaurants with the identical menus. You might consider they would have a different theme dinner in each restaurant - not so. The meals were generally good & in most cases service was good with some exceptions with filling water glasses was poor. It seemed the waiter staff had more tables to serve than normal causing on this cruise not the best service we are familiar with. Our stateroom was small which was located on the 15th floor & happened to be across from a large crew workroom that had carts rolling in & out starting around 7AM & a vacuum running between 7-8AM. On sea days 2 side by side lounge chairs were hard to find around the pool but with 4,000 passengers on board that is to be expected. The pool size for this large cruise ship was very small & on sea days was very crowded. The bar service around the pool we found was good. Guest Services (on the ship) were very helpful vs our Travel Agent & who the travel agent booked this cruise with.

Entertainment could be a lot better

Cabin Review

Family Inside Stateroom
Cabin I1
Stateroom was very small. The safe was very small & in a cupboard with NO Light, so it was hard to see.
The clothing cupboard had about 15 hangers & no more room than that.
You were not permitted to plug in any electronics for charging unless you were in the room.
In the room we were in, it was across the hall from probably a large laundry room, or some kind of a large staff workroom, the result carts rolling/banging in & out over the door way platform early in the morning.
Our stateroom staff person was very good.
Will we cruise on the Bliss again ? NO.
