Sweet way to relax

Norwegian Bliss Cruise Review by Mksobrien

1 people found this helpful
Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: The Haven Aft-facing Penthouse with Balcony

21 nights of pampering, relaxing, and just unwinding from the daily grind.

The Bliss (Haven) is THE PERFECT way to do this. Plenty to do onboard. Stateroom was big enough (even for 3 weeks) so we didn’t get in each other’s way.

Specialty dining is always good (as are the main dining rooms) But the menus have changed since our last cruise so we probably bought more nights than we needed to.

Smooth sailing, excellent staff (how do they remember all those new names?? ), good food and “adult libations”.

The demographics of the passengers were not party animals, only a few kids...I didn’t think about it when booking... but now I’ve seen the light

Most of the excursions were good (Cabo was a clear exception to that with the Lands end boat cruise... not worth doing) and some were most excellent (Aruba the Sunset Cruise... that had me finding my happy place

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Cabo San Lucas

Should have stayed on land - the ride was fine but there was no real excursion might as well have been the Staten Island Ferry

Puerto Vallarta

Harder than I thought it would be (up stairs/ down stairs) PV is one steep territory

Great tour

Excellent way to spend an afternoon

Santa Marta

Walking tour was good

Weather awesome can’t be bad


More than 5 ⭐️ s

This was the best tour of my entire cruise

Take this, it’s super relaxing, beautiful views, good times

St. Maarten

Visited parfumerie and rum factory

I would not start with the parfumerie because thats a lot of smells to absorb before getting back in a bus...

Also, we ran really long but apparently we were on island time
