We decided to book this cruise as it was on the new ship Bliss. The Bliss is a Gateway Plus class, however it should be it’s own class as it’s so different. We stayed in an Haven Spa Suite. It was amazing. Very spacious, walk in closet and a therapeutic bath in the room. The Haven was really nice with the private lounge, observation deck, private pool and restaurant. The staff working in the Haven were just amazing. Very nice and so helpful. Thank you! The cruise itself was nice. We got on in Vancouver and got off in LA. We had two stops, Victoria and San Francisco. Although we were lucky to be the first one to get off in San Francisco, the mandatory Immigration took a very long time. We couldn’t go back on the ship before everyone had cleared Immigration (Customs). The only thing that I can complain about is the speciality restaurants. We had 3 speciality restaurants with our package. We loved Q but was disappointed with Los Lobos. Not worth using as one of your speciality restaurants. They are also charging extra if you want to go to Ocean’s. The Haven restaurant was so good that we cancelled one of our speciality restaurants. I wish we had canceled Los Lobos. Other than that and really this was small, the rest of the cruise was fantastic. I would recommend the Bliss. Beautiful ship. Love the observation Lounge. I hope to do another cruise on the Bliss or it’s sister ship the Joy very soon. Thank you! Read Less

We chose this cruise because it ended in LA so a short drive to our winter home in Tucson, AZ. We did it a little different by flying into Seattle. We then took the sky train to downtown Seattle and were able to check into our room at the Westin. Spent several hours exploring Pike Place Market and the waterfront area. Very enjoyable! We took the Amtrak Cascades the next morning to Vancouver. Very nice, scenic train ride to Vancouver! Then a quick cab ride ($15 with tip) to Canada Place and were on the Bliss very soon thereafter. Met friends in the Local and had some drinks and snacks. We were apprehensive about such a large ship with 4K passengers but we enjoyed it very much. The entertainment was top notch. Jersey Boys, Bliss Beatles and house band Siglo were fantastic. Havana was so-so. I saw several people in our section sleeping during the performance. We had the Ultimate beverage package and the drinks were great. No complaints. We also had 3 free dinners in the premium restaurants. We dined in The Mexican restaurant and were all good with our meals. I had the red snapper and it was fantastic. Also ate at Cagneys which was great and the Italian place which was good also. Our favorite place to hang was the observation lunch and we took lunch there a few times which was very good. Soup, sandwiches, lite items.... We had a balcony room on the 9th floor and, while smaller than comp rooms on RCCL, was quiet and adequate. we did not make advance reservations for the go karts and were disappointed to find them unavailable for the cruise. We even went and tried to ride when there was nobody in line to ride and were turned away. Oh well, it really didn't ruin our trip. The water slides were were fun and no problem getting on them with little to no lines. When took our breakfasts and 2 dinners in Taste or Savor and were pleased with the food. Service was great and all staff were very pleasant. The only rub was long delay getting off the ship in SanFran because of immigration check. We almost missed our tour of Alcatraz. All in all, we were very happy with Norweigan and will cruise with them again. Read Less

I wanted to go on this ship and see what i thought. PRE CRUISE I flew from london to vancover on direct flight on air canada got train to b&b nobody there but got a password to the keys,later went to canada place to see nieuw amsterdam sail. Then the owner was there no heating despite asklng and did not like me going outside to smoke. Check in. I left the b&b nobody around and got train to canada place. Check in was quick despite no going in the platinum queue. Then after the picture i went onboard to find my cabin which was ready. Cabin. I had a studio cabin on 12 deck 12517, tv, shower,virtual view. No drawers but ok for a short cruise. Lifeboat drill. At 3.30pm had lifeboat drill in show lounge no lifejacket required almost forgot to scan my card it was over quickly. My account. As i do not have a credit card and using a debit card charges it twice i was going to use the atm onboard until i find it is a $6.00 charge. So went ashore and got canadian money instead. Dinner. I had booked cagneys so went there i did try to share but sadly no good so sat alone. I had a voucher being a platimum member so got a free meal and a bottle of wine. Had a mini filet mignon a bit small a good dinner. No show booked so went to welcome aboard not what i expected then cigar room for a cigar then studio lounge for coffee and fruit. Shows. Havana and jersey boys were good and beatles tribute in the cavern and main lounge really good. Ports of call. Victoria i went to see butchart gardens already so got shuttle into town and did miniture wonderland. San francisco i booked trip to alcatraz myself at $30 at 12.00 despite the long delay getting off ship i made it ok. Other restaurants. As a platinum member i had 2 vouchers and a 3 dining deal. After cagneys i did los lobos(mexican) really enjoyed it there despite sitting on my own also did q prime rib with the other solos really good, never got to go to the main dining room. Service. My stateroom steward who i did not see much was ok mucked up my ice i wanted and one night had no interest in doing my cabin for the evening. Then on last day wanted me out and said i had to go now despite it being before the time,not impressed. Disembarkation. Pretty good i said 0930 as did not want to rush got off before that as was very well done. My thoughts. Enjoyed the ship but need to be able to share with others more and do not like the booking for shows much. Liked the meeting up with solos in studio lounge and jose was so good. Would go on ncl again. Read Less

This was my hubby and I's 9th cruise and 8th cruise with NCL. I would have to say, this was the best one yet! Our favorite ship was the "Pearl", but now....it the "Bliss"!!! This was so much better! The ship is beautiful and really spacious, we never felt crowded. In fact, I took a picture of my hubby in the "side" room of the Observation area and he was sitting all alone! Our favorite hang-out was in the Atrium....loved "Phil & Keysha" and ended up following the around from venue to venue like groupies....LOL! My hubby said that the Phil's guitar playing skills are awesome! We also saw "Jersey Boys"....it was spectacular! They vocals were spot-on and a wonderful theatre, loved the bar service in our seats! For eats...we ate at the Local (a few times) and Taste (once for dinner and twice for breakfast) and at the Speciality restaurants: Margaritaville, Food Republic, Teppanyaki, Los Lobos and Cagneys.....all great food, but Los Lobos was really slow. We think something most have happened in the kitchen because we never had any problems with any of the other restaurants. And finally, the Go-Karts.....awesome!!! It was so much fun! Wish we could have gone again, but ran out of time. Can't wait for our next NCL Cruise....wish it was tomorrow!!! Read Less

Being big fans of NCL's Breakaway and its Haven, we were really excited to try the Bliss. The short-ish (5 night) southbound West Coast itinerary was intriguing, too; as experienced cruisers, we've done the Caribbean, Alaska, Canada, and a little bit of Europe, too, so this was new to us, and perfect: embark in Vancouver; Victoria, BC the next day; then a sea day; San Francisco the next day; another sea day; and then disembarkation in the Los Angeles area (San Pedro). A good mix of active and relaxing days. Embarkation in Vancouver couldn't have been easier, but this could be party due to the fact that we got to the ship around 6 pm and so basically just stepped aboard. We were quite pleased with our cabin, 9106, at the very forward port-side corner of Deck 9; this is a Haven cabin although not IN the Haven complex proper. The forward corner Haven cabins are terrific in that there are two rooms: a bedroom and a separate living room with a dining area, and a spacious two-sink bathroom with shower and separate whirlpool tub. We quickly went up to the topmost decks to check out the Haven complex, and were totally wowed by the Horizon Lounge, with its plentiful comfy seating, 24-hour complementary cappuccino maker (teas, regular coffee, and fruited water also available), two levels of couches and lounges, and its two-deck-high front window wall. Amazing. The Horizon Lounge quickly became my favorite space on the ship. There is also a similar, enormous Observation Lounge on a lower deck (15?) for all passengers on the ship to enjoy; we took a peek in and it looked very comfy and inviting. The Haven courtyard and lounge on the Bliss are quite inviting. The Haven restaurant has added an outside patio seating area - we had lunch there on day - which is a cool idea, but it overlooked a noisy area of the main pool deck, so it could have been situated differently and been more successful. The upgraded Haven sun deck was gorgeous, with plenty of individual cabanas, lounges, and whirlpools. Food on the Bliss is some of the best we've had at sea. Food Republic is a terrific international-small-bites (some not so small) restaurant that rivals any tapas restaurant on land. Los Lobos Mexican was a pleasant addition to the NCL lineup, and Teppanyaki is an old favorite from the Breakaway brought back. Meals in the Haven restaurant were superb, but as I've said before from our experiences on the Breakaway, they really should rotate their nightly menus to give Haven guests the same kind of choice as diners at the three MDRs (which we did not try this time, nor did we try the buffet). The 24-hour restaurant, here called The Local, offered some tasty treats, too (loved the turkey chili). Entertainment is topnotch, as we have come to expect from NCL. The original musical Havana! was a surprising delight. Jersey Boys was Broadway caliber. Perhaps our favorite evenings were spent watching a wonderful Beatles cover band, Beatlemania Live, perform two shows, one in the Cavern Club at Sea (it looks nothing like the original in Liverpool, btw, being basically the same space as the blues club on the Breakaway), and one in the main theater. NCL never disappoints with entertainment. Service all over the ship was wonderful; we have nothing but good things to say about the NCL Bliss staff. We would love to sail the Bliss again, and are looking forward to more ships in the Breakaway Plus class. Read Less

The embarkation was quick, partly because we were there early. Too bad it rained all day in Vancouver, so we were not able to enjoy Vancouver before we sail out in the middle of the night. We had a balcony on deck 9. The cabin is nice, ok for the two of us. A little tight by the foot of the bed to the desk. The balcony was nice, it has 2 chairs and a little table. The bathroom is little bigger than other ships, and I like the additional shelf space next to the toilet and the trash can is under the sink behind a door. The closet is small, too small! Dining, we didn't even have a chance to eat in the main dining room. My husband was kinda disappointed. We had Le Bistro, La Cucina and Teppanyaki. He didn't enjoyed the dinners, because he was on a no beef, no seafood diet! I liked the dinners at each of the specialty dining. The entertainment was good. Jersey Boys is a must if you go. Havana was ok, didn't enjoy the story line, but love how they have couple performers were older and they were really good! The service was good at certain dept and bad at another. Service at all dining areas were always excellent. Reservation for specialty dining was bad, Why couldn't they just have one line? Of course, I was always in the slowest line! Reservation for GO Cart. That guy was just bad,no greeting, no smile, no hello, nothing! I was ready to go to another helper, and I told him, he was being very unprofessional! Go Cart was fun, especially I came in first! Too bad I made the reservation for later time during the cruise, my husband wanted a re-match.. he just have to wait until February! The games are always fun. but some of the games at night needs to tone down, there were kids in the atrium. LOVE the observation deck! But there are people hogging the lounge chair. They just put their hat or a jacket on the chair, then they disappear, then there are people go there to sleep! Getting off the ship was ok, since we waited to the last group, but there was still a long line to get off the ship! Going back on the Bliss in Feb 2019 Read Less

We are in our early 50’s, aren’t married and have no kids, we have been on more than 50 previous cruises on 6 different cruise lines, most of which to the Caribbean. We’ve cruised with NCL before but not for more than 15 years. We chose this cruise to check out the new ship and because a Pacific Coastal is a nice change of pace from a Caribbean itinerary. We chose to fly in the day of sailing to reduce time away from home and avoid the expense of a hotel in Vancouver. We normally fly to the embarkation port a day prior to sailing in case of travel delays, but since sail away was scheduled for overnight and the first port was Victoria, we decided the risk was minimal and flew in the day of sailing. Our flight landed just before 1PM in Vancouver. My plan was to take the train from the airport to the port, but since it was raining, we decided to hop on a transfer. After finding our luggage and exiting the baggage area we easily found the NCL desk and asked about the transfer. They took our name and room number, so they could charge the transfer to our onboard account, they also took our checked bag and transported to the ship separately. Then sent us out to the pick-up area where we waited only about ten minutes before a bus arrived. Because of traffic the ride to the ship took almost an hour. The only complaint about the transfer was that the bus smelled horribly of stale cigarette smoke. At least we didn’t get wet since we boarded and exited the bus under cover. There was no waiting to check in, just a lot of walking. First through security then upstairs to check in then back downstairs to board the ship. We arrived right when the muster drill was starting, so we went directly to our muster station, The Local Bar and Grill, to participate. After the drill I wanted a drink, but out of all the bars on board I could find only 2 open and they were 4 deep with people, so I gave up and went to the room. We were in room 11100. This was a room with a window all the way in the front of the ship. I booked it because I thought it might be a little bigger than most and I think it was but only by the storage and bench area right under the window. The room was much narrower than I’m used to, there was only about 3-4 inches between the end of the bed and the wall. The shower was a nice sized glass enclosure with no clinging curtain, it would’ve been nice to have a shaving step in the shower. The ship is very long with only two elevator banks, it is a very long walk between this room and the forward elevator bank. I recommend a room closer to the elevators. And a word about the elevators, they were very slow. There was almost always a long wait for an elevator and often they would open but were already full. They really need to work on some logic to improve the elevator service. Our bags were already at our room when we arrived, so I decided to unpack while he went to see if the pool bar was open to get some drinks. When booking the room with a window we received the drink package and 3-night dining package. One nice thing about the drink package on NCL that is different from others I’ve experienced is that they will give you two drinks with one card, perhaps since both in the room are required to have the package. After unpacking we spent some time at the pool bar even though it was raining and cool it was less crowded than the couple bars open inside. The first night we ate at La Cucina. We chose to eat outside because this inside was hot and noisy. They offered blankets if you were cold, I’m not sure why they didn’t turn on the heaters in the ceiling. The food was mostly good, my salad and veal were good, but my tortellini seemed like from pasta from Costco. He had gnocchi with pesto and that was his favorite of the night. Service was very slow. Since we wouldn’t sail until overnight we had the Vancouver skyline as our view, nice. After dinner we had a drink at the atrium bar before heading to the room, it had been a long day. Since we left Vancouver later than scheduled, we wouldn’t arrive in Victoria until late morning. We had nothing planned for Victoria and thought we’d walk into town if the weather was nice. Again, the day was cloudy and wet, so we opted to stay on board today and explore the ship. Much of our route between Vancouver and Victoria straddled the international boarder, so for much of the way we were charged tax on our drinks. I’m puzzled about this, some cruise lines charge tax some don’t. Another puzzle, like many land and sea based venues NCL has discontinued the use of plastic straws, but then why do they use disposable plastic cups at the pool bar? Plastic cups contain much more material than plastic straws. We had breakfast in the buffet. I loved how they had about a dozen or more omelet stations set up during breakfast. Very fast and easy service. Today we stayed on board and took some pictures around the ship, spent some more time at the pool bar, read and napped. I also had lunch in the buffet, there was a nice variety of offerings including fish sticks and mac and cheese. Tonight, we ate at Q’s Texas Smokehouse. I started with the chopped salad, very tasty, then I tried the beef brisket which I found to be dry. He had the sampler and the best thing there was the sausage with cheese and jalapenos, super tasty. Again, after dinner went to the atrium bar for after dinner drinks and watched the atrium activities. This morning I ate breakfast in the buffet again. This time I found the eggs benedict, is was very good, eggs not over cooked or under cooked and the muffin wasn’t hard and dried out like often happens. Our first sea day and the weather is starting to dry out, it isn’t raining any more but at time it’s very foggy. Up on the pool deck you can be above the fog, then you look out the side window but can’t see the water because of the fog. We did some more ship exploring. We watched some folks try the drop water slide to see who could make it all the way through without having to exit in the trap door. We did not try this, I’m sure I wouldn’t have made it. We stopped in at Margaritaville for a margarita that was good but didn’t spend any money on food. We also stopped in at District Brew House, I had a nice stout he had a cider. Tonight, we ate at Cagney’s. We both had rib eyes that were very tasty and also enjoyed the au gratin potatoes. After dinner we had reservations for the go karts. I’m glad we tried them, although I don’t think I would do them again. Since the track is so narrow, they turn into bumper cars rather than go karts and you come off battered. Also, since they are back by the stacks and exhaust from the ship, we came off filthy and drenched. It wasn’t raining but there was so much moisture coming out of the stacks that the track was wet with standing water it was as good as raining. The next morning, we were in San Francisco. Today was a clear sunny day. I had purchased tickets to tour Alcatraz while we were there. I booked for 1PM which I thought would be plenty of time to get off the ship, but we barely made it. Since this was our first US port we have to go through customs, which turned into a fiasco. All passengers had to go through customs and couldn’t return to the ship until all had been cleared. We had a schedule that went by deck, we were group 4. They started about 8AM, our group wasn’t called until 11:10AM and we weren’t off the ship and through customs until about 12:30!We made it to the Alcatraz ferry with only about 10-15 minutes to spare. We spent a couple hours on the island exploring, then decided to just go back to the ship rather than wandering around on shore. We decided to try The Local for a late lunch. We started with artichoke dip, pretzels and I had a salad that would’ve been better with less lettuce and more other ingredients. Then I had a Rachel that was very good, and he had a burger that was cooked to his liking. Since I wasn’t up yet when we sailed in, I was waiting on the pool deck until we left and then was disappointed to see the fog rolling in right before sail away. It was so foggy we could barely see the bridge. We didn’t have any dinner reservations and just ate in the buffet. The pizza in the buffet is really good. Tonight, we had reservations for Jersey Boys late show. I thought they did a very good job on this show, I’ve seen the Broadway touring version several times and couldn’t figure out what they might’ve cut, it also seemed to move at a faster pace. I think it ran about one hour forty minutes. Eggs benedict in the buffet again for our last sea day. Today was warmer and sunnier than before, we even sat in loungers by the pool for a while it was so nice. We stopped by the store for a few souvenirs. Tonight, we ate at Los Lobos. We each had some kind of enchilada mine with green sauce his with red. We both enjoyed them. Our dining package was used up, so we paid for this, I think it was about $25 including the auto tip. Since we only had the one suitcase, we decided to carry it off. It seemed like they expected us to debark before they started calling luggage tags, so we left when they called our floor, but I suspect we might still be there if we had waited for an elevator, so he carried the suitcase down to leave the ship. I had booked a car to bring us to LAX, we were off the ship and out of the terminal early so I called, and our ride came to get us early. It was Friday morning, so the traffic was bad our driver took us on many surface streets to avoid the traffic jams. We arrived at the airport too early to check in so had to wait a bit, but that’s much better than being late. We had time for lunch before boarding the plane. Our flight home was on time and uneventful. This was a nice return to NCL for us, hopefully we will sail with them again soon. I would consider NCL for itineraries that we are familiar with the ports so that we wouldn’t want a ship excursion. For our two ports I found the excursion sold by NCL to be significantly higher priced than the same excursion on the other cruise lines we frequent. I hope they find a way to make the Bliss elevators more efficient. Maybe there just aren’t enough elevators for the number of people on board. We enjoyed the food options and found the staff to be very friendly and efficient.   Read Less

I chose this cruise due to the itinerary as coming from Europe and having family in Vancouver meant I could visit them before heading off on our adventure. Big NCL fan and happy to be trying Bliss it was very exciting to see it in Vancouver port. Boarding process was very smooth and easy and as the cruise had come empty from Seattle the day before very nice to have our cabin ready and waiting for us. Our cabin steward was always friendly and on hand to help us with whatever we needed. The cabin was superb, very comfortable and clean and a wonderful view from the balcony. Very important on this cruise due to the spectacular views sailing under both Lions Gate bridge in Vancouver ( A first for Bliss and very scary when you see how close it looks to be to the bridge going under ) and also the Golden Gate in San Francisco. I was very impressed with the ship overall but felt like some of the new high tech features were taking away from some of the more simpler activities. The go carts were very good and highly recommend reserving your time slot as soon as you board as it was fuly booked for the whole week. When it came to our time they were cancelling them due to issues with the track but thankfully after an hour we were able to have our go. People need to keep to the rules though as I got stuck behind someone going incredibly slow and she refused to move to let myself or anyone else pass. We ended up having to cancel the laser tag as the server was down and so the guns didnt work. It kind of took away any fun when we saw that it was all open air so unless you do it in the dark I dont feel it would have been much fun anyway. >By far our ( my boyf and I ) fave place on the ship was the observation lounge. We snuggled onto one of the chaise longe and watched the world pass us by. A bonus having a light buffet there aswell. we actually preferred to be in there than some of the bars of an evening. The restaurants were good. We ate in Manhattan a few nights and speciality restaurants a few nights. Los Lobos was very disappointing, the food was very bland and my boyf didnt end up eating his. Our friends were not to keen on Ocean Place, we enjoyed Cagneys, as always the food was superb and La Cucina very good too. The Havana show was not really to my taste and quite a few people walked out half way through. Saying that though Jersey boys was by far one of the best theatre shows I have seen at sea. Also I spent alot of time watching the different Beatles shows performed by Beatlemania Live at the Cavern club and thought they were brilliant. The entertainment was fun and varied and had plenty to keep you ocupied. I cant wait for the day I get to sail on Bliss again. Wonderful holiday Read Less

We decided to add the thermal suite  pass for the full cruise.  We were happy we did, especially on the cool weather days.  The suite had a pool, hottub, salt room, steam room, sauna and a snow/cold room to cool down in.  We used them all. Relaxing in total comfort with wonderful views from the thermal suit aft windows made me realize how blessed we were to be on the NCL Bliss.  We also enjoyed the CC get together. Unfortunately we missed the cabin crawl.  We told Stephenie  (Dotty) about how we wanted to see the haven and she suggested we contact Jovo-the head of hotel services.  I called Jovo and asked if it would be possible to get a 5 min look/tour inside the Haven.  He said he was not sure and would ask if it would be possible to do on a port day for just 5 mins.  He then said someone on his staff would get back to me. Alas, we never heard back from his staff. No worries though since we were pleased with our ship experience overall. David loved the ship and wants to return. Read Less

Chose the cruise for it's Itinerary- chose daring excursions, helicoptor ride over the glacier, glacial climbing, canoeing, off roading on the logging trails. Alaska landscape does not disapoint- enamored by Alaska's beauty !! Had been to Alaska before, but this trip took the cake. Russia's Petropavlovsk was a small town people very friendly there surprised that there was lack of souvenirs. Japan was eye opening - took an excursion to Towana Lake & Gorge, what a way to see the beautiful greenery & streams - just stunning ! The tour included an authentic Japanese lunch which was so delicious. Never can get food like that back in the states. Entertainment: the boat had a good selection of entertainment Hypnotist Richard Barker was the best ! Barker put on a great show - went to both show times loved it that much. Barker then put on a late evening only adults show - and another slam dunk, just fun & fascinating. Hypnotist Richard Barker was a standout! He also did a seminar on Weight Loss which was very interesting and well attended. Other Entermaint standouts: The Russian Acrobatic Duo - just a wonderful pair wowing the audience, there was also an excellent Circ de Soliel thouroughly entertaining excellent quality and wow factor, too. There was even a group that did all Bee Gees songs and everyone stood for all the Saturday Night Fever tunes - loads of fun Restaurant Standout: Cagney's Steakhouse a premium restaurant if you take the dining package - did this one 2 times. Non Standouts: Basic food on the boat, disappointed with Garden Cafe, and even the grand dining rooms, seems if I order chicken it's anything but the breast meat, soups are cold, food lacks seasoning, service varied in terms of how long one had to wait for what they ordered, staff seem overworked since it appeared most seating were not staffed enough and therefore not all experiences were quality of any sort. Gettting a seat is another issue - most times ate outside on the deck - sometimes had to wear a jacket due to cold & wind, too :-) Read Less
