  • Cabin Type: Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony

I've been on all the Breakaway Class ships except Joy and Bliss. I finally got a chance to try Bliss and WOW. This ship is beautiful. NCL addressed the two common issues on past ships and fixed it on this one. They enclosed the smoking section of the casino. Brilliant idea. Another move was they put the restaurants at both ends of the ship. It's somewhat hard to find but eased the overcrowding on the middle of the ship. I hope they keep the same layout on their smaller Leonardo ships. Good job on the changes on Bliss..... which I heard is the same on Joy and Encore. Booked the Encore for next year already.

The only negative I can say was the pricing on Food Republic. Way too expensive. All the others including Margaritaville was OK and pricing was

Average and probably subsidized by the high cruise fare. Food Republic wasn't. For example, sushi on Wasabi on Breakaway was $5-6 but $12-16 on Food Republic

Cabin Review

Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony

On the 15th floor. Same level as Observation Lounge which is great. Previous reviews said there's noise drom the 16th floor pool deck but we never experienced it. . Spa is also the floor above. Had a wonderful time.

NCL used Cabo Adventures and this is one well oiled Tour Company. Very Professional with nice buses, organized tour and excellent guides and staff. Simply the best tour group I've been with in all 7 cruises we've been on. Shout out to Ivan. He was an awesome guide
