Overall, had an enjoyable experience on the NCL Bliss on an 8 day voyage over Christmas 2019. The Bliss is modern and clean, with plenty of activities and entertainment, and dining/drinking options and quality are good enough. However, there are also some hiccups in the design, cabin noise, children's programs and crowded nature of activities. For the cost, was a great value (especially over holidays) and would recommend for anyone who is comfortable with NCL.
* Embarkation process in NY: Baggage and embarkation process in NY is a mess and includes a mob of people pushing there way to the entry after arriving on a narrow sidewalk. Complete lack of order. (disembarkation was even worse)
Room was standard connecting balcony. a bit tight but as can be expected with NCL. bathroom seemed a bit smaller than other ships. Biggest issue was noise from the hallway and service entrance.
