Aft Balcony.  Good size with two lounges, two chairs and small table.

My wife and I have done this itinerary a few times on NCL and other cruise lines but this the first time we have sailed on the Bliss and would sail on it again. Any cruise on the west coast is a bonus for us and the transfer from LAX to the cruise port went smoothly. The cruise port was another story though expected I suppose with 4000 passengers being herded through the embarkation process.

Though more accustom to a smaller number of passengers we were able to find those perfect spots to relax in. Lots of entertainment onboard. The theatre performances were good though I would have preferred that the instrumental volume didn't drown out the vocal. Food was great and as can be expected Teppanyaki is a different experience each time we dine there. Using local tenders in Cabos made all the difference rather than the ships tenders.

Cabin Review

Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom

Aft Balcony Stateroom # 12310. Will accommodate three. Twin bed converted to a queen and one day bed which wouldn't interfere with access to the balcony. The single cup coffee maker was a nice to have for those first cups of the day. Didn't require room service and our stateroom steward "Gerom" kept us well stocked with coffee packets. Downside to the aft balcony, whether at sea or in port, is exhaust residue on everything. A quick wipe of the railing and seats was a ritual each time we sat out there. Suggest you don't sit out there if you are wearing white.
