The Video Arcade

I was just on the phone with NCL for something else, and I don't want go through the whole verification process again just to ask this one simple question about the video arcade.

I see the Bliss has a video arcade, is it only for kids and teenagers, or can adults use the arcade as well?

I was pretty upset Angry I couldn't play basketball or use the video arcade on Celebrity's ships. They for some reason only allow kids and teenagers to use them; the video arcade, I "guess" I understand, but not allowing adults to use the basketball court just baffles me Surprised.

Not sure about the video arcade it might depend on where it is located (in the kids and teen area) but I can state that on NCL the basketball courts are open to all. I use them at least once a day especially on sea days when on an NCL ship and on many cruises in mid morning I| had the court to myself.

I know I watched my adult Brother-in-Law play basketball against a bunch of kids on Royal Caribbean...and get beat mercilessly...

Thanks. Bliss's arcade is located on Deck 5 where the Guppies area is located.

So I'm thinking it's off limits to adults.

I'm 53 and miss the days when adults and kids played video games in the same space.

Makes me wonder if this was some grand conspiracy Sad.

I miss going to the video arcade; the sounds. blleee, pew pew, whop whop whop, nee nee nee nee...LoveHappy

I got off of Bliss just before the shutdown (about a week before). The arcade was primarily for the kids but the Basketball court was open to everyone.

There is a big arcade just for adults. It’s called the Casino. I mean, do you really feel good about yourself paying $20 for a pack of Pokémon cards just to say “I won it “?
