Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom

We are longtime NCL cruisers. We enjoy the freedom of making choices day to day while relying on the excellent service.

For this cruise the destination was definitely the highlight. The scenery and the wildlife were incredible. The NCL Bliss made experiencing this beauty even more special with the introduction of their beautiful Observation Lounge on deck 15. It was such a lovely experience sailing in Glacier Bay. In addition the Captain made the bow available for picture taking. That was a special treat.

The inclusion of Park Rangers to provide the history of the area and to assist in pointing out wildlife was fantastic! We were able to see a family of five bears come right down to the water. Once the Park Rangers pointed them out, they were easy to see but would have been missed otherwise.

Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

Lovely - I was traveling with my 2 adult sons and it was comfortable for all. The balcony was very nice and included a lounge chair.

Our cabin steward was excellent!

Port Reviews


We stayed in the NCL hotel one night prior to sailing. Enjoyed a full day packed visiting all the traditional Seattle highlights.

Glacier Bay

The day cruising in Glacier Bay was our favorite experience. Having the Park Rangers aboard was a definite plus.
