Ship was too big, too many people, if you must, travel OFF SEASON

This was our fourth trip on an Alaskan cruise and while it was the newest ship we sailed on, it was a freaking nightmare. We traveled on Norwegian 10 months prior and it was great, but it absolutely was all about ...

Download App prior to boarding the Ship. Kids club not worth it.

Remember to download the App prior to boarding. A lot of people in our party weren't able to download the App once the ship set sail even when we came to ports. It was difficult for our kids and cousins to ...

Not what I expected from a cruise.

I took this cruise because we had 12 family members also going. The cabin with balcony was everything I expected. Just great. But we never saw ourStuart. There was a sign about towels on the floor to be exchanged ...

Blissful time in Alaska

This was one of our all-time favourite cruises! The Norwegian Bliss is one of the most beautiful ships we've been on (modern, tasteful, understated elegance rather than in your face opulence). The staff were ...

Very good cruise.

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 ...

Big Ship, Inadequate public spaces

We chose to cruise Alaska on this ship to experience a 'big' ship with all it had to offer: go carts, laser tag, water slides, broadway style shows. We are all experienced cruisers but had never sailed on a ship ...

Not well organized

We chose this cruise because an "expert" told us this was the best way to see Alaska. We disagree completely after this experience. The actual ship itself was beautiful as we know it was just about a year old. ...

Nice ship but it’s like being on a week long timeshare information session.

The ship was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful overall. The food in the buffet was usually cold and bland, sometimes inedible. It was incredibly busy up there and difficult to find seating. ...
