Nice to relax

For the price of the cruise we really couldn’t complain. Although we weren’t overly impressed with the food, we still had a relaxing cruise and that’s what we were looking for.

Norwegian Breakaway

Norwegian Breakaway

Sail date: November 26, 2017

If I didn't know better I would think I was on Carnival not Norwegian

I don't want to dissuade anyone from Norwegian, yet this was by far the worst cruise we have been on. Having sailed on the Getaway, the Epic and the Star, we were expecting better. It wasn't awful, but different. It seemed an itinerary designed more for people with young children and first time cruisers. The amount of smoking allowed was incredible, Great if you were a smoker, but disgusting for those of us who are not. It seems as though NCL has lost their vision. I thought you were better than this. Norwegian has raised their prices significantly over the last few years. $89.95 for the beverage package. Really? Your greed has convinced us to go elsewhere Norwegian, this cruise being the final straw.

What a ship!

Redemption for NCL. After an underwhelming cruise on the Breakaway, my wife and I were at the crossroads with Norwegian. This cruise was going to be the decider on whether we would vacation with them again. Well NCL, you can thank the Bliss. What a beautiful ship! No compaints other than booking the specialty resaturants. Great service, great food, great experience.

Back on the Bliss

So, we have been on this ship before and it didn’t disappoint. The Bliss is big, beautiful, clean and well organized. The staff from waiters, bartenders, stewards and support staff were all amazing. Food, fantastic. The itinerary was not our favourite, but this trip was more a mental health getaway and we enjoyed the ship immensely. My only small complaint was the quality of the wine included in the UBP. Difficult to find a decent wine and they even took the house “East West” line off the package. Naughty, naughty I guess they need to recoup some Covid losses. Overall though, loved the cruise.

Cruise tips

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Walking tour with a ship excursion. Terrible. Boring, the guide spoke poor English and could not hear a word she said. Bought a t-shirt and back on the ship.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Should have gone to a beach I think. Stayed around the port and ran the gauntlet of vendors. Do an excursion or stay on the ship is my advice.

Mazatlan, Mexico

Another walking tour but much better run. Fun and educational with a much better guide.

Don’t take the ship shuttle! We waited 2 hours at LAX for the shuttle to arrive. Yikes. Needless to say we called Lyft for the return trip…simple.

Harvest Caye, Belize

Kinda like an mini resort, great pool and beach. The Ultimate Beverage Package does NOT apply here however and drinks were ridiculously expensive. C’mon, $9 for a small beer?

The Spinnaker Lounge a quiet place to chill

Port Canaveral, Florida

We did the Orlando Eye and it was a bit of lunch bag let down. A tad boring, would not do it again.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

Tendering process was horrific. No announcement or guidance where to go to tender off the ship. Asked 4 staff members. Go to 5, no 7, don't know ask Guest Services...and finally 4! After an hour on the island we have to go...big storm coming(although it was a bright sunny day). I personally think this was NCL BS. Talking to others this is a common occurrence at this port, and I believe they are unable to handle the logistics of tendering 4000 people.

Nassau, Bahamas

Having visited the island before and being robbed I visited Nassau with a few doubts. I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived early because of the debacle at Stirrup Cay so we visited the Atlantis resort that night in Nassau, Taxi's were cheap and friendly and although we lost at the casino, the resort itself was incredible, The next day we spent a relaxing afternoon at the Warwick Hotel.

If you are a NON-smoker think twice, We have NEVER been on any cruises where smoking was so prevalent.
