Beautiful ship, with lots of activities.

Background information: We took this cruise, with a group of 15 family and friends. I’ve been on NCL ships before, and always enjoyed them. I was apprehensive about going on the Norwegian Bliss, due to the large ...

Good cruise with a few minor complaints

Overall the Bliss is a great ship, very much in line with the Getaway or Escape. My family of 4 sailed on the Bliss the week of 3/23/19. We had two rooms as we added our 18 year old a few months after we had ...

The Bliss delivered on the promise of its name.

Last year as we were planning our cruise we were unsure about which cruise line/ship to choose. A friend told me about this new ship that Norwegian was sailing with a go cart track and laser tag. I started my ...

Norwegian Bliss a Mix of Good and Bad

The Bliss is a newer ship, but the layout is not very efficient. The elevators take forever, especially going to and from Deck 16 where the buffet and pools are. Guest Services and the Shore Excursion Desk are ...

Not the best cruise

So I have been on RC, Disney and carnival. I can honestly say, sailing on the Norwegian was the worst experience. We booked a balcony room, which wa tiny! I mean very very very small. The bathroom layout was good. ...

Private Function Land

We upgraded our 2 rooms to balcony; NCL put us on different floors quite far from one another. We have 3 kids 10 and 9, so it wasted a lot of time going between the 2 rooms. Our room person was just O.K., did the ...

Worst customer service of any cruise

We chose the ship because it was the new big ship, it is new and big but very crowded because so much of the ship is taken up with the go cart track and private areas on the main decks. The service from the wait ...

After boarding ship and going to our cabin the very first thing we saw was a used condom on the balcony. Then the hangers were piled on the closet floor and a used bar of soap from the previous guest was left in ...

Wait in line

We unfortunately went at a very bad time of the year. The ship was sold out. No room upgrades. We only made it to one show and that was because we waited in the standby line for 30 minutes. The specialty dinning ...

A ship in a ship makes for crowds

We booked this cruise about 1 year ago, paid a lot for 5 rooms and kept getting invites to bid for upgrades, meanwhile on other lines they typically upgrade at no costs, needless to say we ended up on the 5th floor ...

Not bad

We just got off the bliss. We have three kids ages 9-14. I have to say out of the nine cruises we’ve done, this was by far the one we liked the least. First off, there’s no sports court. May not sound ...

Incredible Entertainment and Nice Lounges; Very Disappointing Wine Program

The Norwegian Bliss is a beautiful new ship that really stands out for the broad number of bars/lounges/common areas that make a very big ship feel smaller. They have separate bars that cater to almost* any type of ...
