To qualify this review - I have approximately 300 total cruise nights between Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Viking, Disney, Celebrity and Norwegian.
My family took a 7 day cruise Alaska cruise on Norwegian Bliss from Seattle, WA on September 3rd, 2022. Embarkation was the easiest (most efficient) process I have ever experienced. From time Uber dropped us off to walking on the ship was less than 20 minutes - no wait time - longest time was wasted going through the same questions we had already answered during online check in (for some reason - they make you "check in" again even if you check in online).
Once on board - we decided to wait for our room to be ready at the Garden Buffet (As we had carry on luggage). The food in the buffet was exceptional (by cruise buffet standards), no problem finding a table and the staff was very attentive.
