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 ...

Crowded with odd layout

With over 4,000 passengers, you can imagine how cramped it is. There’s limited seating for shows and dining. You have to reserve a seat for the show using the app, tv, hallway touch screen or calling the box ...

"Survivor, Cruise Edition" - but with food and drink

Chose this cruise because of the departure port and Caribbean tour. Enjoyed NCL cruise a couple of years ago so decided to stick with the line. Overall, the trip was meh. Had no expectations, and that was good. The ...

This cruise convinced me that sailing with NCL is NOT for me.

I chose to sail on the NCL Bliss because it is Norwegian's newest, largest ship. Usually, newer means better. But the design of this ship and the crew of the Bliss proved they are truly "not ready for prime time." ...

Alaska is always a great destination, even when it was cold and rainy. But my concern is that the food on NCL seems to have gone downhill rapidly since our last cruise on the Jade last September. It was bland. ...
