Great time, Great Food, Great People

We cruised on the Norwegian Bliss February 2-16, 2020. It is a beautiful ship, very ornate and modern. Our cabin had plenty of room for the both of us and the balcony was wonderful. The food in the buffet ...

Wonderful time on the Bliss

DH and I have been on this itinerary before (once on HAL, twice on NCL), but this was the first time just the two of us, without the kids or any other family. This was a celebration of our 27th anniversary. We ...

Beautiful ship

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try Norwegian, specifically the Haven area. We were not disappointed, The Haven was a wonderful respite from the excitement and crowds of the main areas of the ship. The ...

Terrible food and long lines

We can’t wait to get off this cruise ship. This is the last day of our cruise on the Norwegian Bliss from Vancouver to LA. We stayed in a balcony room in 10246. The room is spacious and modern, but it’s not ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
