Could be WAY better

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 ...

Crowds at all times!

We choose this cruise due to the port location (no flights for us) and the deal we got at time of booking. Have cruised with NCL many times before but have never dealt with such crowds everywhere on the ship at all ...

Second Time on the Bliss was OK but Wasn't exactly the Charm

Was on the Bliss last year just a few months after her inaugural. I really liked the ship observation lounge and thermal spa so thought I would give it another try. On that first cruise on Bliss I was disappointed ...

Post Cruise Customer Service is Non-Existent

We tried this cruise because we liked the idea of the things it had to offer (go karts, mini golf, laser tag & the waterslide). We also picked it for the convenience of leaving out of New York. The embarkation ...

Bliss- Too big of a ship

So I was told after the fact that this was the first re positioning cruise for this ship. I think the ship is to big for me. There was not enough seats in the atrium. Guests were pushing people to get to seats. ...

A Cruise to Nowhere but Still a Trip!

So just a heads up - we won this cruise and it originally was supposed to go out to sea and then back. We were told that due to Port Laws it couldn’t do that but there is some question as to whether that was the ...

Sardines in a can!

I chose this cruise because of the ease of sailing out of NYC and not having to fly to get to the cruise, plus the dates worked well. The ship was large enough to house 5,000 people, but beyond that, we were ...

Beautiful ship, entertainment lacking, disco noise

I was so looking forward to this 14 day Southern Caribbean cruise out of New York. First the good. The ship is beautiful. Our cabin steward Guilson was amazing. That’s about where it ends. I was one of those fools ...
