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 ...

Too Many People For the Facilities On The Ship

No complaints here, total BLISS!

We are a family of five on Deck 5 and went with four additional friends who stayed on Deck 10. We considered ourselves typically non-complainers and easy going for what it's worth. It was easy to notice many ...

Disappointment

I chose NCL Bliss because I cruised with NCL in the past and had a great time. The last cruise I took was earlier this year on the Royal Caribbean. So, I thought I would give NCL another shot. We were going to hold ...

Relatively positive experience, but not entirely Blissful

Overall, had an enjoyable experience on the NCL Bliss on an 8 day voyage over Christmas 2019.  The Bliss is modern and clean, with plenty of activities and entertainment, and dining/drinking options and quality are ...

Cruise to nowhere

Our previous 2 cruises on NCL were definitely 5 star. This cruise was unfortunately a 2 star for us. Sailing out of New York was nice. Easy for us to get to from Philly. Sailing past the NYC skyline and the Statue ...

Bad cabin mini-suite

The Bliss was a great cruise except for rooms. The noise from cleaning the kitchen for the Ocean Restaurant woke us up from 2-4am every night. Avoid rooms 9830-32 at all costs. The staff were excellent. The food ...

Not even the happiest place on earth!

My husband purchased this cruise for me as a holiday gift - we love cruising, and have cruised several times with NCL. The fact that Jersey Boys (one of my favorite musicals) was on-board was the proverbial icing on ...

Nice ship but it’s like being on a week long timeshare information session.

The ship was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful overall. The food in the buffet was usually cold and bland, sometimes inedible. It was incredibly busy up there and difficult to find seating. ...

Cruise was lacking, service poor, food marginal

We chose this ship for its touring of Glacier National Park and for the onboard amenities like race track, laser tag, etc. What strikes me is the utter lack of good service. Every restaurant we went too, the servers ...
