  • Sail Date: Mar 2020
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Got off the Bliss in NYC on Sunday the 15th had CDC Waiting for us to take our Temps as we walked off. NCL was told day 2 that a 2 year old on the 03/01 sailing tested positive, And then EVERYTHING Changed. They did not tell Any One on the ship until the 15th a day After we got off. Their was a family quarantine in their room on our floor (10) until they got off in Nassau.

No one could touch any utensils any where on the ship. They made the staff put ketchup on your food for you. YES I said if you wanted Ketchup they put it on for you.

This ship is a Clone of the Breakaway, just bigger there is Nothing about this ship that would make us get back on. Other than the go cart track, the Q ( BBQ ) and los lobo ( Mexican ) Absolutely Nothing worth doing this monstrous ship.They took out Mordurno's and NO One was in the New Los Lobo's their new Mexican restaurant It was a ghost town in their every night.They took out Margaritaville in the middle of the Cruise and put up all the American Diner stuff but Never Opened while we were on.

The Service is Far from What NCL is known for. I believe it's because of the size of the ship After 10 NCL cruises this by far was the worst service we received. The difference between Taste and Savor was Night and Day, We went to breakfast at Taste on day 2 and it took them 3 times to get 4 guest order correct,

Went to Savor for dinner on Tues, Wed, Thurs, And the Service was in our Top 5 ever. No consistency anywhere on the ship they were just going though the motions.

They RUINED H2O made it Half the size of any of the Breakaway ships and Took Out the Grato and replace it with some fountain wall. Also the entire under cover Bar is Now All Smoking Area. And I smoke and I had to leave.

Missed the Island because of Wind, AGAIN! Last time this will happen for US, The worst part We are so close to Co Co CAY and saw RC ship docked and people on the beach. Floated around the ocean for 24 hours, Pulled into Nassau at mid-night for a medical reason,

Overall Unless they gave us the price we paid for this cruise we will not be on any large NCL ship in the future, Would rather be on the Gem.

Also the seams like it needed the bolts to be tightened, 3 night while it was windy the room banged and creek ed loud enough to wake people up.
