Review of Norwegian Bliss based on its Maiden Voyage - April 21, 2018 12 Day Transatlantic (TA) Cruise Background: This review is based in part on comparisons with our past experience on 2 Celebrity TA’s, 1 Cunard QM2 TA, 1 Celebrity TP and 2 Celebrity Caribbean Cruises. We have no connection with the travel industry. At the time of our Bliss TA, starting from Southampton UK on 4/21/18, the ...

Southampton to New York

The embarkation and disembarkation processes were both fine, no problems or delays at either Southampton or New York. I must confess that the balcony stateroom i received was extremely small (not even 140sqft), wardrobe is just so closed to the bed and very difficult to get in out anything out of it (and i am skinny). Bathroom was ok, no complaints. Dining venues were fine, as the ship has a ...

We did the Trans-Atlantic cruise last year on the Celebrity Eclipse and wanted to try a different cruise line this time around. The Bliss was still being built when we booked last September and looked like an amazing vessel, so we thought we'd give it a try. This is our third cruise, we did the Caribbean on the Disney Magic back in 2009, which was excellent. Boarding at Southampton was a ...

Beautiful ship but not family friendly

We were on the inaugural sailing of the Bliss from Southampton to New York in a mini-suite. We generally book the mini-suite for the extra space with three adults but was really surprised at the amount of space available in the cabin. We had extra cabinet space available after putting everything away for a 12-day cruise. The only drawback to the cabin is the lack of counter space making laying ...

We wanted to do a maiden cruise and try a transatlantic to see how we enjoyed extra sea time. It was great! The decor was beautifully understated, mirroring the colors of the sea. It will be amazing in Alaska. Like on many ships, it is more tailored to Alaska than the Caribbean. Gorgeous. Crew were very friendly and offered service above and beyond. (There was one really green waiter at ...

We just got off the maiden voyage of the Bliss, from London ( south Hampton) to NY. The ship, the people, the food and entertainment was fantastic. I have been on 20 plus cruises and this was my favorite. Thank you for the great time. Seeing that this is a review I do have one thing I would have changed. The humidor club has a smoking room. I like a cigar and a scotch but the place was full of ...

Well, this is our 10th cruise with NCL and we were not disappointed. We've mainly been on the smaller ships like Jade etc, but did do Epic recently and it kind of worried us as we didn't like that so much. No fear though, the Bliss is excellent. Design, decor and ambience feel much classier. Beautiful layout, loads of places to relax and watch the world go by. Service superb as always, ...

The opportunity to go on our first trans-Atlantic cruise, on a brand new vessel, with our favourite cruise line was too much to refuse. All of our party were at work the day before the sailing, as we live in the UK and have visited Southampton on several occasions in the past, we travelled down on the morning of the cruise. A four hour car journey meant we were in plenty of time for the scrum ...

Trans-Atlantic on the Bliss

We chose the cruise because it was the maiden voyage for the Bliss and offered the opportunity to stay a few nights in both London and New York. It would have been nice if NCL offered transportation from London hotels to the port in Southampton, something other cruise lines do. Dining on the ship was excellent especially Le Bistro. Ocean Blue was good but not worth the surcharge. We didn't try ...
