Alaska round trip out of Seattle

Norwegian Bliss Cruise Review by chistag

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Short vacation, out of Seattle for me and my wife. Impressive big ship comes with a price when you share it with over 4000 passengers. Crowded check in, main areas, theater shows, restaurants and elevators. You need reservation for almost everything if not you'll wait for long time on standby lanes. Lots of amenities and fun options if you don't mind being charged again for them. Surprised by pastry and ice cream charge.

Even clean our balcony stateroom was smallest so far and mini suites are not much better, just a 3 feet larger bathroom. Looks like the real staterooms start at Heaven level-high price.

Complementary restaurants have pretty much same menu every day, Some of the staff are trying hard to make your experience better while most look tired or bored.

Best Spa and treatment if you don't mind the over charge. Our impression was that of a bar/ casino where if you are not ready to spend extra better don't come or be there.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BX 13908

Clean but small. Hard working with friendly attitude steward. Could not enjoy much the balcony as the smoke from the engine was shifted on that area.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Crowded, construction noise and dust, homeless persons everywhere. What a shame for a

famous city.

Great scenery and experience.

Captain decided that a 20 miles/ hour wind was too much for his spanking new ship to handle. No guts, no glory.


Beautiful port, lots of flowers and entertainers along the water front. Seattle could learn from it.
