First time cruisers, beautiful ship.

We wanted to do Alaska cruise and was recommended by travel agent. Also because it was one where you don't have to get dressed up and can eat when you want to. Our group consisted of my husband and 14 year old ...

Ship was too big, too many people, if you must, travel OFF SEASON

This was our fourth trip on an Alaskan cruise and while it was the newest ship we sailed on, it was a freaking nightmare. We traveled on Norwegian 10 months prior and it was great, but it absolutely was all about ...

A wonderful Alaska cruise, just avoid the spa.

Embarkation - You'll see me saying time and time again, Haven is the way to go! The dedicated Haven security line and lounge to fill out forms was awesome! The parking garage being across the street from the ...

Download App prior to boarding the Ship. Kids club not worth it.

Remember to download the App prior to boarding. A lot of people in our party weren't able to download the App once the ship set sail even when we came to ports. It was difficult for our kids and cousins to ...

Not what I expected from a cruise.

I took this cruise because we had 12 family members also going. The cabin with balcony was everything I expected. Just great. But we never saw ourStuart. There was a sign about towels on the floor to be exchanged ...

Blissful time in Alaska

This was one of our all-time favourite cruises! The Norwegian Bliss is one of the most beautiful ships we've been on (modern, tasteful, understated elegance rather than in your face opulence). The staff were ...

Beautiful ship but be prepared to pay extra - NOT a smoker friendly ship

We have been on many cruises and have sailed on just about every cruise line and found this ship to be very well planned with ample space so as not to feel crowded with a full ship. Be sure to head to the ...

A worthwhile Alaska cruise vacation - enjoyed it immensely!

Embarkation took a long time as it seemed all 2380 passengers arrived within a 30-minute window so the queues took well over an hour to check in. Luggage arrived to our stateroom promptly though (just after we ...
