Very good cruise.

We had a wonderful time on our Alaska cruise on the Bliss from Seattle. First, I would like to praise the captain who made a couple of difficult decisions regarding when to leave a port and to skip a port. When we ...

Not at All what I expected

This was my honeymoon cruise. I booked through NCL and was told I would be given a $50 shore excursion credit. When I got on the ship, I was told I didn't qualify. This put a damper on my honeymoon. It isn't the ...

We did it our way, and loved it!

This was our second cruise, but it took us over 20 years to try again because our first one wasn't a pleasant experience. So I'll start with why we selected this particular cruise and why it was so much fun for us ...

Haven, the good and bad

I always sail the haven category. It’s usually in a forward facing penthouse. This cruise I had 12106. I like this cabin for its space and forward and port views. The balcony is usually small and this ship was no ...

My first cruise, 90% of the trip was perfect, 5% okay and 5% needs fixed.

Seattle to/from fit our travel plans best. We spent a couple days prior visiting Seattle. Embarkation was easy. The (experienced cruisers with Carnival) couple that joined us said they had never had it that ...
