Norwegian Bliss

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail date: January 12, 2019

Ship: Norwegian Bliss

Cabin type: Inside

Traveled as: Family (young children)

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

Too many people on this boat. It has the same number and size of public areas as smaller Norwegian ships--the company has just stuck in more levels of cabins without providing any extra facilities. If anything, for example, the Bliss Theater is smaller than on another Norwegian boat I've sailed. We were elbow-to-elbow constantly with strangers in order to do anything. Not a relaxing experience for me and not a ship I have any interest in sailing again.

Great drinks, dirty glasses. My partner got a Manhattan in a glass that had lipstick all over the rim--wasn't her shade.

Garden Cafe

Jersey Boys was cut to 1 hour. The onboard musicians were good.

Children's Programs

Did it with the grandkids. Video arcade is $1.10 to $1.65 for one play. The Guppies area is under-resourced.
