Truly had the most relaxing and amazing time aboard the Norwegian Bliss. I've done two carnival cruised before, This was my first Norwegian. In my opinion the Blew carnival out of the water. The staff was energetic, polite and personable. The decor was breathtaking. My favorite spot on the Bliss was the "Observation Lounge" it was so peaceful and the veiws of the ocean or ports were breathtaking. The food on the ship was spectacular and never dissapointed. I ate 6 times a day, Haha. The ship also had a lot of entertainment options from games in the atrium, to pool and deck parties. Don't even get me started on the spectacular showing of the Jersey Boys! That cast could have been on Broadway! You could have never left the boat and been completely content with your vacation. As with everything there is always room for improvement. My few complaints would be that the Karaoke had minimal to no good selections. They had nothing from this decade and its like they took the bottom 4 songs off of mediocre albums. And lastly, the manhatten room both times was a bad experience, The first time we tried it the table was not clean, dirty plates were left and they expected us to eat off of them and were rude when asked to switch them out for new ones, Our second experience the waiters brought out wrong foods and never refilled our drinks.ect. he was probably the least frienly crew member we had come accross. To end on positives. The overall vacation was one of the best my family and I have taken. The freestyle cruising was so relaxed and the photographers captured amazing moments. We were celebrating my sisters sweet 16. And the last night managment was surveying in the Savor restraunt. They saw her sash and talked with us very thoroughly about our cruise experience. They asked for our cabin number and surprised her with decorations and a delicious Birthday Cake. We were stunned and feel that we would not receive such thoughtful and amazing treatment aboard any other cruise line. I had such a blast I literally left the ship planning our next cruise with norwegian! Id like to thank the amazing staff and crew for such a well rounded relaxing and amazing experience. Read Less

We have been excited for this cruise since we booked it back in November. This was our honeymoon and had everything we wanted in a cruise ship. We were immediately blown away from our check in. From the time we stepped out of our cab and onto the ship qas a total of 8 minutes. We have had multi hour waits before. The ship is beautiful from top to bottom. Modern and elegant but not over the top. We truly loved the Waterfront feature and that was where we gravitated to every night. All the tasty beverages, with the music but without the crowds. The one detractor from this cruise is the Bliss Theater. The entertainment was not to the caliber in which we expected. The theater is built over top of what we can only figure is one of the dance clubs. The late night performances compete with the pulsating sounds below. We literally could not hear Havana over the party going on downstairs. The food was above expectations and we would suggest Specialty Dining for sure...but our best meals were literally in the Manhattan Room. Spa is amazing...but pricey. Room is good. This is a great mid runner between entry level and luxury cruising. Read Less

We had all great experiences on the Bliss ! A hugh thankyou to our cabin guy Ramundo Awsome!!!! The food and entertainment was great ! Lots of fun in the atrium! Great shows ! The ship was immaculate! Excursions were a little too short . It would have been nice if the atrium shows could have been shown on the big screen on deck as atrium got crowded. The pool deck screen was underutilized. More stuff could have been shown on it instead of screensaver type stuff. I would definitely take this cruise again staff were very nice . They were all super friendly and went out of their way to take care of us. I think they may want to look into the slide that hangs over the pool side . I got stuck in it and had to climb out the trap door on the side.! Apparently this happens frequently , I was told I wasn’t big enough . I am 5ft 3 and average weight . Read Less

I been on Carnival and Royal Caribbean but Norwegian was by far the very best cruise I been on yet! This is the first cruise that I have had the best food and great service!! As being a picky eater, Norwegian was able to make my eating very easy. I did not require anything specific but all the food choices from the buffet, complimentary dining, to specialty dining was very easy to choose from. I was able to enjoy everything I ate without struggles. On previous cruises, eating was a bit of a struggle and I was really worried I was going to have the same issue on Norwegian. I am so glad I had no issues. People I know always told me that Norwegian has the best food and there is so much to choose from. They were right!! The cabin was small for 4 people but that was expected as they are meant for 2 people. The guy who fixed the room was very nice, friendly, and did a great job making up the room as it was a mess. I was really surprised that he always made the room look brand new, as it was being used by 4 of us. On day 4 I was really cold, called room service, and asked for a extra blanket. Within 5 minutes there was a knock on my door and there was the blanket. I could not believe how fast the blanket came! I was beyond thankful!!! All the shows were great. Saw Havana, The Beatles and the comedy show. I really wanted to see Jersey Boys but the night we were suppose to see them, all 4 of us had gotten very tired and fell asleep early. We are really hoping they will be around once we book our next cruise. All shore excursions were great!! My favorite was the shopping, tour, and beach time at St. Thomas. We were able to go to Magen's beach!! That was the best beach I ever experienced!! My husband and the other couple were just as happy as I was with that beach! The ship was absolutely beautiful!! Loved the go-karts. I have not done go-karts in over 20 years.........until I got on your ship! I thought it was funny and great at the same time that I did the go-karts on your ship! That was a great time! I love how the halls have the fish which makes it easy to know which way we were going. I already told my husband that I want to cruise only with Norwegian from now on! We are hoping to go back on Norwegian in 2021 on the Encore!! Just need to save up and get a great deal as we live on a budget. I want to thank Norwegian for the best cruise we ever been on!! I wish I would of started with Norwegian a long time ago!! Read Less

Everything was very good. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and will do it again. The cabin Steward Ryan was very good. The entertainment was great. This was the best buffet we have had on any of our cruises. The evening meals in the dinning rooms were not that great. The room was a little dark. The steak we ordered was tough. Was disappointed with Tortola but the other excursions were very good. The unlimited drink special was a great deal.The embarkation was good but the disembarkation had some confusion with instructions given by the crew members. Will sail again with Norwegian. The shows in the Atrium were very good for the most part. The I Havana and Jersey Boys were very good. The transfers to and from the airport went very smooth. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and will definitely cruise again with them. Can’t wait to go again. Read Less

It was our first time on a cruise... we had a blast! our plane had a delay but the crue member waited for us before leaving... they welcome's us at the airport to make sure we were safe and arrived. We appreciated it!! We loved our cabin. It was awesome with the balcony and the king size bed... we slept like babys! the dining spaces were perfect with a great variety of food. It was excellent and so tasty! the Garden café was clean and places for everyone. the "à la carte" restaurants was great to. the culinary experience was really great. Every night we had party's with great music and entertainment from the crue members! We loved to go on shore excursion and beaches... everyday had something special to explore on the ship and on the islands. we did carting and laser tag and it was very fun to! we laugh a lot on the water slides even if we're adults. thanks for everything!!

We had a great vacation onboard the Bliss. Food was great and entertainment was varied and excellent. Buffet-Lots to chose from. Standouts were the Mongolian Beef, vetable stir fry, and beef with broccoli. Room service- Great turkey sub, my husband liked the supreme pizza. We ordered often. The Local- Great that there is something 24/7. Good pub food, especially the Asian wings. Q- was ok, other restaurants were better. Cagneys-Food was excellent, service was slow. Le Bistro- wonderful meal. I am not really a desert eater, but they were the bomb. Teppaanyaki-Very good. We had great tablemates and a funny chef. Prohibition show- It was ok, but I don’t feel like it worth $36 each. Adults only for sure. Jersey Boys- We really enjoyed this show. It was face paced and the cast was very talented. Siglo band was excellent as was Tatianna. We took the aft elevators whenever possible. We never had to wait for an elevator. We had a great time and would not hesitate to sail her again. Read Less

Very quick embarkation and debarkation despite Port of Miami being crazy busy. The ship is beautiful and the service was excellent. Food was very good. Most nights we ate in Savor, the same menu as the MDR and we found a very good wait team, ask for Bernadette and Guisti! The Mixx bar right outside of Savor was great, Allen was our favorite bartender. Sugarcanes outside bar is very nice when the ship is moving. St Thomas and Tortola are both very beautiful. Comedian was good, the singer/comedian was funny. One hint though make your show reservations as soon as you get on the ship. They have an enclosed smoking area in the casino so even though there is a still a smoky smell at least you don't have to be encased in a cloud of smoke. The Bliss was built for Alaska so there are alot of great views all over the ship. Read Less

My first cruise was the Eastern Caribbean in 1989 on Carnival Cruise Line Jubilee. This makes my 10th Year’s Anniversary of cruising. I wanted to go back to my first cruise to celebrate my anniversary. I enjoy cruising with NORWEGIAN Cruise line, i got a special invation to the Officers Wine and Dine Dinner.and a invation to a special Anniversary Social Event. I wanted to go on their new ship the Bliss .That is a beautiful ship, the employees, food, entertainment and service was excellent. When I call the service desk to ask for something it was done or deliver right away. What I like about that ship to is they have a Starbucks Coffee and lots of hot tubs on the ship. The Casino had all the up-to-date Slot Machines, race car track, bowling lane, Laser tag. What I didn’t like was you had to put your room key down into a slot on the wall behind you entire door in order for the lights and Electric plugs to work in your room. Overall I rate my Cruise as A A A A A. I would like to go on this ship again. Read Less
