Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food on the Gem was much better. Specialty Restaurants on Bliss was not the same as Gem. They ran out of stuff like porterhouse steaks. I order seared scallops and they looked boil and were tiny tiny tiny. I remember on the Gem LeBistro Was so good. Garden Restaurant has too much pork. Gem had a different menu like Mexican night and Chinese night. Bliss seamed like same stuff every day.

Onboard Activities

No bbq by the pool like the gem. Shopping was horrible bad selection. Liquor was expensive cigarettes was expensive. No really good last day sales. Park West art auction was nice they worked with you. Race car was nice but kinda expensive for 3 laps and kept stalling out. Sales are kinda pushy and that’s annoying.

Only one thing the hairdryer cord need to be about 12 inches longer. Was hard to dry your hair with a short cord when your tall. Other than that room was nice clean and comfy.

Not close to ship and taxi’s are all different prices and $2 shuttle is hard to find. Taxi should be $4 I think NLC should provide shuttle
