Norwegian Bliss

April 2018 - 12 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Southampton To New York) Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

Somehow we expected more on an inaugural cruise.

We expected to be the first inhabitants of our stateroom. After finding a hair ball in the shower and the coffee maker with a used packet, we felt let down. We booked a mini-site. The word ‘suite’ envisions something ostentatious. The cabin was about the same size as that on NCL smaller size ships. The balcony was even smaller, barely allowing two chairs and a small table. The splendid Observation Lounge was turned into a bedroom. Guests were sacked out and snoring on the long lounges.

Norwegian Gem

February 2018 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Gem

Regal Princess

September 2015 - 15 Night British Isles & Norway Passage (Copenhagen To New York) Cruise on Regal Princess

A transatlantic with unique ports

This transatlantic stopped at unique ports and the final destination, New York, made it convenient for us to return home. The somewhat formal atmosphere especially the formal nights were not to our liking since we prefer the free style cruising..There were too many ships in some of the ports visited which made it very crowded ashore.

frankandjill's Tips

Ponta Delgada, Azores - We hired an 8 passenger van and toured the seldom visited (by cruise ships) the Nordeste part of the island. No crowds. 75 EUR/pp including a sumptuous lunch.
Norwegian Bliss Norwegian Bliss - Your key card uses the touch method. DO NOT puncture a hole in it for your necklace. It destroyes the card and makes it unusable.
