  3. Norwegian Bliss
We traveled on the Norwegian Bliss from 6/2 - 6/9/2019 and had a wonderful trip. No regrets with paying the additional cost for the Aft facing balcony which provided us with awesome panoramic views of the ports and was great for Glacier Bay as we didn't have to fight the crowds for photo opportunities or photograph through windows in the observation desk. We enjoyed the entertainment on the ship including the band Silgo, the Beatles band in The Cavern (saw them twice and they were fantastic). Prohibition and Jersey Boys were also very good; however we did not enjoy Havana. The seating in the Bliss theater is not at all comfortable and seats feel like the tilt forward and the seating in the Atrium area can be improved as well. Had a lack luster dining experience in Cagney's - very disappointing as we've dined in Cagney's on other ships. The service was excellent; however the food was very disappointing - steaks were dry (even those cooked medium rare had no juices and lacked flavor and had almost a chalky consistency!). We enjoyed both Q and Teppanyaki. The service in the main dining rooms (Manhattan, Taste, and Savor) was fair; wait staff did not seem to be adequately trained, service was slow and food was mediocre.

Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B1 12908
Aft facing balcony did not disappoint on this Alaskan cruise we had excellent views the entire trip. Our cabin steward, Juan was very friendly and attentive. We had no complaints with our cabin.
