  3. Norwegian Bliss
The Bliss is an amazing ship. Lots to do with kids and adults. The pools are very close together and always very busy. There are many options for dinning for every meal of the day, even in the middle of the night. The food is great we never had a bad meal. The buffet was different every day with a large amount to choose from. Cagney's Steakhouse was amazing. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly and was delicious. La Coucina was our next favorite. The waiter explained everything on the menu. The food was amazing. We really love the free style dinning it gave us a chance to try almost every place to eat on the ship. I recommend getting the dinning package upgrade to try different resturants at a very reasonable price. We truly enjoyed the experience. All of the ships employees are great, very friendly, helpful, and funny. The balcony room is great. We loved being out there enjoying the views. It was peaceful and relaxing. The bed are comfortable. There is extra storage under the sofa. The bathroom had plenty of space for all of our things. The closet had plenty of hangers for our close and the steward asked if we needed more. We loved the coffee maker in the room. It was great for making hot chocolate at night and sitting on the balcony. My daughter lover the large mirror with sitting stool to get ready. It had great lighting she said. It was very convenient so that two people can get ready at the same time. I highly recommend the Stone Island excursion in Mazatlan. The people were amazing, the food was great, the views were stunning. The activities were wondering. There was so much to do and alot of them were included in the package. Everything else was a very reasonable price to do. We loved our guides. The Mexican Fiesta & Lunch excursion in Puerto Vallarta was fun and full of information. Our guide Victor was great and very funny. The Tequila factory was amazing alot of free tequila tasting. The lunch was good and the entertainment was great. The tour around the city before we returned to the ship was great. Alot of stops and alot of sightseeing. We would recommend this. Both of these excursions were well priced for what we got. Not very exspensive at all. AVOID AT ALL COST THE EL ARCO, SCENIC STOP AND GLASS BLOWING IN CABO!!!!!!!!!!!! It was the WORST excursion we have ever been on. The guide would only talk about how poor his country was, how they need and rely on our tips. How the government treats its people so badly, and if you have money then you will be fine. The driver went so slow it was only supposed to be a 3 hour excursion and it ened up being 4 and a half one. With no food or drinks. Not even somewhere to buy something. We were only at the glass blowing demonstration for 5 minutes and the guide kept jumping infront of the demonstration. Even the glass blower himself was getting frustrated. All the guide kept saying was dont forget to tip him. He needs it to feed his family. The glass blown stuff you can purchase was way over priced and was just ok. When we finally got back we had 30 minutes to run back to the tender boat to get to the ship before we left port. The guide and driver took to long there was no time to do anything. We wished we never booked this excursion and never wasted our money. AVOID AT ALL COST. Overall this was a great vacation. We loved Norwegian so much we booked another vacation with them for next year. If you are planning another cruise. Make sure you go to the cruise next desk while on board to book it. They have great offers and are very helpful and friendly.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BA
The size of the room was good. Loved the balcony views. Lots of storage. We like to put our suitcases under our beds and thats were all the dirty close go. Lots of space in the bathroom as well. My daughter loved the lights above the large mirror where she would get ready for dinners and pictures.
