We chose this ship because it was the newest ship. This was our first cruise and the Norwegian Bliss is a brand new ship. We have always wanted to have the experience. The room was a bit small, but the extended balcony and bathroom made up for this. It was helpful to have space underneath the bed to put our stuff. The cruise was very expensive. We wouldn’t be able to travel as a family due to the cost. The kids will have to wait till they’re older to have this experience. Our excursions were shortened and not long enough to visit. A 12 to 14 day hour would allow for more time to see the sights. We loved the performers in the sugarcane, the variety of foods offered, the jewelry selection and art onboard along with a Starbucks was very much appreciated. The charge for yoga way too much and the overall experience was not that great. The charge for wi-fi was unbelievable. We learned what it is we’re looking for our next vacation. Taking a cruise is the way to vacation. 7 days isn’t long enough. Read Less

We went on the Bliss with a back to back starting out September 30 ship from Vancouver......, This is a Beautiful ship with a great itinerary......the entertainment was fantastic, so much to do on this ship....the food was yummy, we did specialty dining.....love NCL...We Can't wait for our next cruise... The staff and crew were amazing the cleanliness of the ship was fantastic it was just a beautiful all-around great cruise. The only thing negative on this whole cruise was the time that we had to get off the ship to go through San Francisco. We had to go through customs, it was a mandatory that everyone had to get off the ship, The lines were long and you stood in line for hours, however it was of no fault of NCL...... this was the first time that San Francisco had such a big ship dock and everyone had to go through customs so that's what the delay was all about, again it was no fault of NCL. I feel the did the best they could with this situation. Read Less

very disappointing embarkation went smoothly cabin ready when we arrived at noon. cabin small, but appreciated muted colours of brown and teal and coffee maker since room service costs 7.95 per delivery. noisy music blaring everywhere including the elevator. only cabin and observation deck quiet, except several times day and night, cabin shuddered from slamming doors. pop music played so loud in the cafeteria we took breakfast in our cabin. bar in the cafeteria opened at 6 am food served at 7 am. thank goodness, Savor and Taste restaurants open at 7 am. music loud, but I was not in danger of going deaf. ALL food stations noisy w/ silverware clashing w/ metal Holland America and Celebrity use wooden salad bowls, Princess uses plastic. Bliss uses meta; bowls and metal utensils.-- adds to the constant din. BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT WAS THE NOISE IN THE THERMAL SUITE. Some women were talking so loud we couldn't hear the meditation music. I went at 8 am to avoid the crowds. On Holland America, Celebrity, Princess, RCI there r signs requesting silence and the staff remind the rare persons who forget. No signs on the Bliss and no one cares. I sailed on the Epic a couple of yrs ago. The Spa was quiet. even in the main dining room and specialty restaurants, people's voices rose as they drank alcohol. bliss advertised free bar as a perk and most people took advantage of this offer. in fact, because i am a silver member i get a free bottle of wine in my cabin even though i do not drink. no matter how many times i request sparkling water i get wine. some stranger getting off the elevator when i arrive benefits. i suspect the powers that be on Norwegian r alcoholcs. i am diabetic and i tell them every time i sail.-- no one cares Norwegian provides lousy customer service. when we arrived in San Francisco, due to unclear instructions i disembarked early b4 i had eaten breakfast. an officer came to me after i complained to security that i could not wait 4 hrs to get back on ship to eat he assured me he would solve the problem. i was shaking by this time on the verge of passing out. he never returned. i will forever be grateful to Gina from Frisco security who gave me a yogurt from her lunch. NorwegIan also disembarked people in wheel chairs who had to sit for hours b4 returning to the ship why couldn't they have been taken off the ship last, not first? when i finally got back on board i whimpered bitterly to a supervisor about them putting my life in jeopardy. to calm me they sent chocolate coated strawberries and a bottle of wine to my cabin. chocolate and alcohol will kill me. some travel agents already tipsy in the early afternoon benefitted. how hard is it to google diabetic diet? i was so upset i went to a manager at guest sevices who listened, but probably won't implement my simple suggestions eventho she said thet were good ideas. on the plus side, The Jersey Boys show in the theatre was great as were the Beatles impersonators in the Cavern Bar. we left Havana when a young lady on stage took off her bra. for a moment i thought i was in Vegas The food on Norwegoan ships has improved. I like the fact that i can order 3 appetizers and call that dinner. Teppenyaki was terrific except for the woman who spilled her beer on me. the food was almost as good as if i had eaten in Vancouver. Los Lobos served fresh quacamole which was as good. they had IMPORTED the corn from Chilliwack BC i recognozed the peaches and cream corn which was delicious why do i cruise Norwegian? Itinerary and spa. The Bliss stopped in Victoria where my daughter andi had planned to visit the Egyptian Exhibit at the museum. this seemed like a better idea than an overnight in a hotel.

This was our second cruise and we were excited to be aboard the brand new Bliss. Overall we had a great time. The food was good but it was disappointing that the three complimentary dining rooms (Savor, Taste, and Manhattan) all have the exact same menu despite being represented as different restaurants. The food at the Local dining room was good most of the time but inconsistent in quality. Ie. one day my Rueben was perfect and the following day it was so full of fatty meat that it was inedible. Our cabin was clean and in good repair. The boat was spotless. The staff were Friendly and helpful. It was difficult to get a booking at the race track or laser tag as they close when raining. My only complaint about the cruise is the smoke stacks are too close to the upper decks and as a result the soot falls on the rear portions of the boat including the racetrack and H20 bar area. We had several instances of having soot on our hands or clothing. Read Less

I wanted to go on this ship and see what i thought. PRE CRUISE I flew from london to vancover on direct flight on air canada got train to b&b nobody there but got a password to the keys,later went to canada place to see nieuw amsterdam sail. Then the owner was there no heating despite asklng and did not like me going outside to smoke. Check in. I left the b&b nobody around and got train to canada place. Check in was quick despite no going in the platinum queue. Then after the picture i went onboard to find my cabin which was ready. Cabin. I had a studio cabin on 12 deck 12517, tv, shower,virtual view. No drawers but ok for a short cruise. Lifeboat drill. At 3.30pm had lifeboat drill in show lounge no lifejacket required almost forgot to scan my card it was over quickly. My account. As i do not have a credit card and using a debit card charges it twice i was going to use the atm onboard until i find it is a $6.00 charge. So went ashore and got canadian money instead. Dinner. I had booked cagneys so went there i did try to share but sadly no good so sat alone. I had a voucher being a platimum member so got a free meal and a bottle of wine. Had a mini filet mignon a bit small a good dinner. No show booked so went to welcome aboard not what i expected then cigar room for a cigar then studio lounge for coffee and fruit. Shows. Havana and jersey boys were good and beatles tribute in the cavern and main lounge really good. Ports of call. Victoria i went to see butchart gardens already so got shuttle into town and did miniture wonderland. San francisco i booked trip to alcatraz myself at $30 at 12.00 despite the long delay getting off ship i made it ok. Other restaurants. As a platinum member i had 2 vouchers and a 3 dining deal. After cagneys i did los lobos(mexican) really enjoyed it there despite sitting on my own also did q prime rib with the other solos really good, never got to go to the main dining room. Service. My stateroom steward who i did not see much was ok mucked up my ice i wanted and one night had no interest in doing my cabin for the evening. Then on last day wanted me out and said i had to go now despite it being before the time,not impressed. Disembarkation. Pretty good i said 0930 as did not want to rush got off before that as was very well done. My thoughts. Enjoyed the ship but need to be able to share with others more and do not like the booking for shows much. Liked the meeting up with solos in studio lounge and jose was so good. Would go on ncl again. Read Less

This was my hubby and I's 9th cruise and 8th cruise with NCL. I would have to say, this was the best one yet! Our favorite ship was the "Pearl", but now....it the "Bliss"!!! This was so much better! The ship is beautiful and really spacious, we never felt crowded. In fact, I took a picture of my hubby in the "side" room of the Observation area and he was sitting all alone! Our favorite hang-out was in the Atrium....loved "Phil & Keysha" and ended up following the around from venue to venue like groupies....LOL! My hubby said that the Phil's guitar playing skills are awesome! We also saw "Jersey Boys"....it was spectacular! They vocals were spot-on and a wonderful theatre, loved the bar service in our seats! For eats...we ate at the Local (a few times) and Taste (once for dinner and twice for breakfast) and at the Speciality restaurants: Margaritaville, Food Republic, Teppanyaki, Los Lobos and Cagneys.....all great food, but Los Lobos was really slow. We think something most have happened in the kitchen because we never had any problems with any of the other restaurants. And finally, the Go-Karts.....awesome!!! It was so much fun! Wish we could have gone again, but ran out of time. Can't wait for our next NCL Cruise....wish it was tomorrow!!! Read Less

Just off the 5 day Coastal cruise Vancouver to LA. I cruised in the solo studio cabins. I loved the studio cabin and lounge concept. The lounge was perfect for snacks and drinks, especially the specialty coffees. Jose who ran the 5 o’clock meet ups was an excellent host. Wasn’t totally impressed with the specialty restaurants, Teppanyaki was my favorite, Cagney’s was ok, and I didn’t think Ocean Blue was worth the additional surcharge. Food Republic, sushi and dumplings were excellent. Lots of fun activities in the Atrium but be there early to get good seating. Beatlemania performance and the crew show in the theatre were excellent. Loved the Observation Lounge, no problem every finding a spot to sit, chair hogs did not seem to be an issue. The food stations were excellent, I ate my breakfast and lunch there most days, avoiding the Garden Cafe craziness. Star crew member, in my opinion, was Jose from Cruise directors staff, with a second to ‘Jackie Chan’. Disembarkation in Los Angeles went very fast. The only issue, and it was not a fault of NCL, was getting off the ship and through Customs in San Francisco. Started at about 8:30 and last people got through around 1:15. A lack of custom officers seemed to be the issue. Read Less

Prior to the ship being built , I booked. I followed this vessel for months and read countless posts and reviews-this is unadulterated. I wish I continued on the next 8 day sailing! The embarkation in Vancouver was sketchy-but it was their first time with the Bliss. From the moment we boarded it was special. Our cabin (13844-balcony mid) was awesome and clean. The Garden Café fantastic-no problems with food or seating as prior reviews stated. Met a great gang at Spice H2O and we gelled (smoking section)...so I missed all other meet and greets. La Cucina was fabulous/Cagneys was good/ Le Bistro awesome...Savor and Taste great...didn't care for the Local.Mario and team at Spice H2O did a great job at bartending and providing exceptional service. Jersey Boys good, ample theatre. The Beatles show awesome! The Casino was also great-wish more machines but they played nicely!!! the waiters and waitresses were phenominal, food exceptional, drinks great, our cabin steward was so so...do the racing experience! I wish they get rid of Margaritaville-it was dead space. Elevators were also fast-not as many reviews stated. What I realized is that you cant please everyone....many passengers would try to cut lines, complain about trivial things, not respect the staff...it is sad. I met many seasoned cruisers who loved this experience for a larger ship I believe I got hung up with many posts and prior reviews but this was exceptional! If staying in Vancouver-Sutton Place is phenominal! Victoria a nice stop, San Francisco was good-did the Hop On Hop Off and not disappointed-only disappointment was the behavior of a few folks who wouldn't disembark for customs and the behavior of the mob to get back on! The only other thing I can say-the karaoke was dull and machine wasn't good....met many nice new friends from all over! Many friendly people! A few that should have stayed home! Read Less

We took the five day Pacific Coastal (re-positioning) Cruise on the Bliss and had a great experience. I was a bit nervous having read many mixed reviews about the Bliss but would certainly sail on the Bliss again in the future. There were some minor negatives, but overall it was an excellent experience. One thing that is clear about the Bliss is that it benefits those that like to plan ahead or, on the other end of the spectrum, those that are extremely relaxed about what they do or do not experience on the cruise (eg just show up and see if it works out). If you are in the middle, it is a lot easier to be disappointed on the Bliss. For those that are planners, making specialty restaurant and show reservations through the NCL website well in advance of departure is a must. I would say make the reservations as soon as you can. Then, once you board, go to a screen on the ship and make go-kart, laser tag and any additional show reservations (those that couldn't be reserved online) right away. This will help ensure the best experience. That being said, if you are not a planner and just go with the flow there seemed to be enough cancellations, no-shows, etc..., that you can do just about everything. Again, you just can't have that expectation. I suspect that many of those disappointed in the Bliss fall somewhere in between these two ends of the spectrum. Those that want to eat at 7pm at Le Bistro or Cagney's on the first sea day, but wait to make a reservation until they get onboard will not be happy. With that being said, some of the points from the Bliss are: Embarkation -- Vancouver + NCL was a great experience -- I never got on a ship so quickly or so easily. Cabin - small but workable space. We had a balcony cabin on the 11th deck and it easily fit 2 adults + a teen. The free movie options on the TV were an improvement. Storage space was good. I felt the bed was a bit firm compared to other cruises. Dining - We ate at specialty restaurants 3 nights, the main dining room 1 night and the buffet 1 night. All were good and we did not have a bad experience. The buffet was a real highlight and one of the better cruise buffets I have experienced. On past NCL cruises it seemed that the staff was slow in cleaning tables at the buffet, that was not the case on the Bliss. The food in the main dining room (Manhattan Room) was as good as the specialty restaurants, but the service was nowhere near as good. Our best meal was at Le Bistro. We also hit up the Local several times on the cruise and feel this is a vast improvement over O'Sheehans. Entertainment and Activities -- Very good experience with Laser Tag and Go Karts. I felt they were expensive going in (they are), but worth it. Bars were good and I especially liked the district brew house -- I hope this concept catches on for additional ships. Pool and slides were crowded even in cooler weather. This is a constant issue on megaships like the Bliss. I will say they added enough hot tubs at different locations and that was a plus. Night club was a ton of fun with better than average cruise DJs. Jersey Boys was amazing, Havana was terrible (I think it was written by a 6th grade drama class that ran out of time). Spa -- Had to set this aside as it was my least favorite aspect of the cruise. The actual set up is nice, so that is not the issue. The problem is the hard sell. Can I just get a sign/flag that says "I don't want to buy anything". The don't have the Brazilian steakhouse on the Bliss, but the green button / red button system could also work. If I am paying $200 for a service, I don't need you to lay into me to buy $250 miracle cream. Sure, let me know what is available, but a sales pitch in the guise of a "consultation" is an awful experience. I was waiting for the attendant to say "well, if you don't want my shampoo for $100 an once, are you interested in hearing about a timeshare I am selling". Service -- Good service, they got the job done with a smile. Ports -- It is not the fault of the ship (it is a customs/immigration issue) but the delay to get off the ship in San Fran should have been explained better in advance. I live close enough to SF that we did not have big plans, but felt bad that were visiting the city for the first and possibly only time. We did not do any ship based excursions. I look forward to the possibility of sailing on the Bliss again. For the right type(s) of traveler it is a really great experience. Read Less

We are in our early 50’s, aren’t married and have no kids, we have been on more than 50 previous cruises on 6 different cruise lines, most of which to the Caribbean. We’ve cruised with NCL before but not for more than 15 years. We chose this cruise to check out the new ship and because a Pacific Coastal is a nice change of pace from a Caribbean itinerary. We chose to fly in the day of sailing to reduce time away from home and avoid the expense of a hotel in Vancouver. We normally fly to the embarkation port a day prior to sailing in case of travel delays, but since sail away was scheduled for overnight and the first port was Victoria, we decided the risk was minimal and flew in the day of sailing. Our flight landed just before 1PM in Vancouver. My plan was to take the train from the airport to the port, but since it was raining, we decided to hop on a transfer. After finding our luggage and exiting the baggage area we easily found the NCL desk and asked about the transfer. They took our name and room number, so they could charge the transfer to our onboard account, they also took our checked bag and transported to the ship separately. Then sent us out to the pick-up area where we waited only about ten minutes before a bus arrived. Because of traffic the ride to the ship took almost an hour. The only complaint about the transfer was that the bus smelled horribly of stale cigarette smoke. At least we didn’t get wet since we boarded and exited the bus under cover. There was no waiting to check in, just a lot of walking. First through security then upstairs to check in then back downstairs to board the ship. We arrived right when the muster drill was starting, so we went directly to our muster station, The Local Bar and Grill, to participate. After the drill I wanted a drink, but out of all the bars on board I could find only 2 open and they were 4 deep with people, so I gave up and went to the room. We were in room 11100. This was a room with a window all the way in the front of the ship. I booked it because I thought it might be a little bigger than most and I think it was but only by the storage and bench area right under the window. The room was much narrower than I’m used to, there was only about 3-4 inches between the end of the bed and the wall. The shower was a nice sized glass enclosure with no clinging curtain, it would’ve been nice to have a shaving step in the shower. The ship is very long with only two elevator banks, it is a very long walk between this room and the forward elevator bank. I recommend a room closer to the elevators. And a word about the elevators, they were very slow. There was almost always a long wait for an elevator and often they would open but were already full. They really need to work on some logic to improve the elevator service. Our bags were already at our room when we arrived, so I decided to unpack while he went to see if the pool bar was open to get some drinks. When booking the room with a window we received the drink package and 3-night dining package. One nice thing about the drink package on NCL that is different from others I’ve experienced is that they will give you two drinks with one card, perhaps since both in the room are required to have the package. After unpacking we spent some time at the pool bar even though it was raining and cool it was less crowded than the couple bars open inside. The first night we ate at La Cucina. We chose to eat outside because this inside was hot and noisy. They offered blankets if you were cold, I’m not sure why they didn’t turn on the heaters in the ceiling. The food was mostly good, my salad and veal were good, but my tortellini seemed like from pasta from Costco. He had gnocchi with pesto and that was his favorite of the night. Service was very slow. Since we wouldn’t sail until overnight we had the Vancouver skyline as our view, nice. After dinner we had a drink at the atrium bar before heading to the room, it had been a long day. Since we left Vancouver later than scheduled, we wouldn’t arrive in Victoria until late morning. We had nothing planned for Victoria and thought we’d walk into town if the weather was nice. Again, the day was cloudy and wet, so we opted to stay on board today and explore the ship. Much of our route between Vancouver and Victoria straddled the international boarder, so for much of the way we were charged tax on our drinks. I’m puzzled about this, some cruise lines charge tax some don’t. Another puzzle, like many land and sea based venues NCL has discontinued the use of plastic straws, but then why do they use disposable plastic cups at the pool bar? Plastic cups contain much more material than plastic straws. We had breakfast in the buffet. I loved how they had about a dozen or more omelet stations set up during breakfast. Very fast and easy service. Today we stayed on board and took some pictures around the ship, spent some more time at the pool bar, read and napped. I also had lunch in the buffet, there was a nice variety of offerings including fish sticks and mac and cheese. Tonight, we ate at Q’s Texas Smokehouse. I started with the chopped salad, very tasty, then I tried the beef brisket which I found to be dry. He had the sampler and the best thing there was the sausage with cheese and jalapenos, super tasty. Again, after dinner went to the atrium bar for after dinner drinks and watched the atrium activities. This morning I ate breakfast in the buffet again. This time I found the eggs benedict, is was very good, eggs not over cooked or under cooked and the muffin wasn’t hard and dried out like often happens. Our first sea day and the weather is starting to dry out, it isn’t raining any more but at time it’s very foggy. Up on the pool deck you can be above the fog, then you look out the side window but can’t see the water because of the fog. We did some more ship exploring. We watched some folks try the drop water slide to see who could make it all the way through without having to exit in the trap door. We did not try this, I’m sure I wouldn’t have made it. We stopped in at Margaritaville for a margarita that was good but didn’t spend any money on food. We also stopped in at District Brew House, I had a nice stout he had a cider. Tonight, we ate at Cagney’s. We both had rib eyes that were very tasty and also enjoyed the au gratin potatoes. After dinner we had reservations for the go karts. I’m glad we tried them, although I don’t think I would do them again. Since the track is so narrow, they turn into bumper cars rather than go karts and you come off battered. Also, since they are back by the stacks and exhaust from the ship, we came off filthy and drenched. It wasn’t raining but there was so much moisture coming out of the stacks that the track was wet with standing water it was as good as raining. The next morning, we were in San Francisco. Today was a clear sunny day. I had purchased tickets to tour Alcatraz while we were there. I booked for 1PM which I thought would be plenty of time to get off the ship, but we barely made it. Since this was our first US port we have to go through customs, which turned into a fiasco. All passengers had to go through customs and couldn’t return to the ship until all had been cleared. We had a schedule that went by deck, we were group 4. They started about 8AM, our group wasn’t called until 11:10AM and we weren’t off the ship and through customs until about 12:30!We made it to the Alcatraz ferry with only about 10-15 minutes to spare. We spent a couple hours on the island exploring, then decided to just go back to the ship rather than wandering around on shore. We decided to try The Local for a late lunch. We started with artichoke dip, pretzels and I had a salad that would’ve been better with less lettuce and more other ingredients. Then I had a Rachel that was very good, and he had a burger that was cooked to his liking. Since I wasn’t up yet when we sailed in, I was waiting on the pool deck until we left and then was disappointed to see the fog rolling in right before sail away. It was so foggy we could barely see the bridge. We didn’t have any dinner reservations and just ate in the buffet. The pizza in the buffet is really good. Tonight, we had reservations for Jersey Boys late show. I thought they did a very good job on this show, I’ve seen the Broadway touring version several times and couldn’t figure out what they might’ve cut, it also seemed to move at a faster pace. I think it ran about one hour forty minutes. Eggs benedict in the buffet again for our last sea day. Today was warmer and sunnier than before, we even sat in loungers by the pool for a while it was so nice. We stopped by the store for a few souvenirs. Tonight, we ate at Los Lobos. We each had some kind of enchilada mine with green sauce his with red. We both enjoyed them. Our dining package was used up, so we paid for this, I think it was about $25 including the auto tip. Since we only had the one suitcase, we decided to carry it off. It seemed like they expected us to debark before they started calling luggage tags, so we left when they called our floor, but I suspect we might still be there if we had waited for an elevator, so he carried the suitcase down to leave the ship. I had booked a car to bring us to LAX, we were off the ship and out of the terminal early so I called, and our ride came to get us early. It was Friday morning, so the traffic was bad our driver took us on many surface streets to avoid the traffic jams. We arrived at the airport too early to check in so had to wait a bit, but that’s much better than being late. We had time for lunch before boarding the plane. Our flight home was on time and uneventful. This was a nice return to NCL for us, hopefully we will sail with them again soon. I would consider NCL for itineraries that we are familiar with the ports so that we wouldn’t want a ship excursion. For our two ports I found the excursion sold by NCL to be significantly higher priced than the same excursion on the other cruise lines we frequent. I hope they find a way to make the Bliss elevators more efficient. Maybe there just aren’t enough elevators for the number of people on board. We enjoyed the food options and found the staff to be very friendly and efficient.   Read Less
