Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

The overall experience on the Norwegian Bliss was just alright. One of the things you need to be prepared for is the constant service fees, 20% gratuity charges (which is already paid for ahead of time, so you shouldn't have to pay again) and other fees for relatively stupid things. Half of the ports we went to, we needed to be tendered in, which was a real pain. It would delay the whole day by at least an hour or two and there were so many people it was hard to get around ANYWHERE. Not to mention if you're disabled and need a scooter, forget about getting on the island from a tender. Have fun trying to find a show, there were only two offered for the entire 14 day cruise, as well as only two showtimes a night to choose from. The food wasn't the best, really could have made something better at home most of the time. The dining service absolutely sucked, barely asked you what you wanted to eat, let alone make conversation with you. Overall, not very impressed with the ship, just enjoyed the ports themselves. I do not recommend this boat, perhaps the other boats would be nice, but 4,000 people are just too many, and it takes a lot away from the experience both on shore and off.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Very pleased with the cabin, relatively big considering previous cabins we've stayed in. Very clean, and the bathroom was nice as well.
