Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom
Traveled with children

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.

Specific comments:

* 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)

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

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.
