Review summary

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.

The Port of Vancouver was by far the most organized embarkation we have ever experienced

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Standard restaurants and buffet were excellent. We also dined at Los Lobos, Q, and La Cucina. Again all food was fantastic and the food quantity at Q was enormous. No idea how someone could eat that much. Only downside was the inability to pre-book online and the scarcity of reservations available. We wanted to go to Cagney's but there was NO availabilty the entire cruise.
