This cruise convinced me that sailing with NCL is NOT for me.

I chose to sail on the NCL Bliss because it is Norwegian's newest, largest ship. Usually, newer means better. But the design of this ship and the crew of the Bliss proved they are truly "not ready for prime time." ...

My First Cruise!

Alaska has always been a must see for me. This was my first cruise and my first solo trip. It was fantastic! Norwegian has everything down to a science, from embarkation to disembarkation. The ship itself is ...

Built for Alaska....Great Views!

I chose this cruise because I had never been to Alaska and since I’m an NCL Latitudes member I was excited to experience the newest ship in the fleet that was built especially for Alaska. I persuaded a friend who ...

Timing and price both worked for me. I travel solo, so NCL is my go to cruise line because they have some great options for the single traveller. I usually book a studio cabin, but this trip, because of the multiple ...

Nice ship but disappointing cruise

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 ...

Terrific crew on a beautiful ship

The Bliss now has been added to my list of favorite ships. The vessel itself is beautiful with everything in a logical place with the notable exception of Le Bistro, which is oddly hidden on an upper deck. The ...

Great ship but . . .

This is a beautiful ship. We had a mini suite and thought the bathroom was great. It had a huge double sink with 2 faucets and a big shower. Worth the extra charge for sure! The room is a bit smaller than Celebrity ...

We really enjoyed our cruise on Bliss. It's very big ship with lots of dining and entertainment options. It was also Halloween and we had like 1000 singles on the ship, so that was great people watching. We flew in ...

It's NEW for now (2018), enjoy but not if you smoke!

My singles group was on this cruise ship. NOT good for large groups because dining is all over the ship in smaller venues, so it could not meet our group needs, we were 450 people. Pricing was inconsistent, I bought ...
