Great ship & dining. Missed stop and ship rocking just small inconveniences.

Boarding began rough, with a long line caused by equipment malfunction in the port of Manhattan, NYC. By the time we got in, it was nearly 4 PM, an hour after the listed sailaway time. The ship only left port at ...

Every December the same itinerary

As the name implies, every December we take an NCL cruise out of NYC with the same itinerary to the "south seas", it's a habit I hope never to break. This year was unique because we had a chance to cruise the NCL ...

Deplorable On-Board Service

We booked the Bliss for our annual family Thanksgiving cruise, but were greatly dissatisfied by the on-board service level, particularly the food service. This was by far the poorest service we have received on any ...

Too short - Regular Dinning was just So So

I cruised NCL last year on the Breakaway. The only thing I missed about the Breakaway was the Brazilian restaurant. Besides that - everything about the Bliss was better. I was never far away from food or a bar. ...

Just Relax

We chose Norwegian over the other cruise lines because of the "Free-Style" dining concept. You can eat, drink and party anytime you want. We went to Hawaii on the Pride of America and it was spectacular. This trip ...

I did a back-to-back cruise on the Norwegian Bliss. (Jan 5 thru Jan 19). The ship is absolutely beautiful. The Observation Lounge on the 15th floor is magnificent. It's not well advertised and many thought it ...

Good luck using the go-carts or laser tag. Be the first on board or lose out.

To be fair, the cruise I went on was Christmas/Winter Break Week. But it may be typical for any cruise on that ship during any time the ship is packed with adults and 1,000 kids. Perhaps a not-so-popular week might ...
