Review summary

We signed up for another cruise while onboard, so we must have had a blast! There was something for everyone. We had a great time, and all in all I would say this was a fabulous trip. The Bliss is a beautiful ship. It never felt crowded except at the main pool. We liked this boat SO much better than Royal Caribbean.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
People arrived very early though we were instructed not to. The wait was not bad but we were in boarding group 5.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The restaurants where you paid separately were delicious. The garden cafe that was included was not very good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Tons to do. Bingo, trivia, race track, spa, exercise facilities, etc.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The prohibition show is worth the extra expense. Havana needs to be re-choreographed. Someone needs to work on staging. Also, it was TOO loud.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Our balcony needed to be cleaned but everything else looked great. You saw people cleaning constantly.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great size. Loved having a separate seating area. Bed was comfy. Loved having a balcony. Plenty of room for storage. Bathroom seemed bigger than on Royal Caribbean. Patio furniture and floor were dirty and never cleaned while we were there.

Ship tip

Try to get into Vibe. It was very relaxing. I don't care for the nonsense at the main pool area, so this escape was worth the price.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

We did the catamaran sail with turtle snorkel. It was so fun. Beautiful day for a sail. Staff was great.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
We signed up for a tour with a beach stop and shopping. There was no shopping except at the beach. I wish that had not been there because it was junk and took away from the beautiful area. Our tour was interesting. I didn't realize how much destruction there would be from the storms. The beach was gorgeous. We didn't know we would have to purchase chairs and an umbrella. $40 for an hour It would be helpful to know this as I didn't take much cash with me. That was annoying.

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

Too many people. Atlantis is too crowded, so we decided to stay on the boat.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Very organized. Our steward kicked us out of our room even though we were following instructions to wait for our color to be called.
