Review summary

I was always loyal to NCL but after cruising on the Bliss i may well have to look into another Cruise Line. Too much upsell. The activity list included more ads for the auctions & Effy than actual entertainment.


4 out of 5
Slow & disorganized

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Dining rooms were ok. Speciality was obviously better. Buffet was a disaster. The kept re-using the same food for lunch as dinner, but just calling it by a different name.... EVERY day...EVERY DAY

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Mini-golf was non-existent. Karting was closed half the time as was laser tag--and not just for the weather. Slides & pools were very nice. Also great to have an adults only section.

What entertainment? Same 2 shows over & over. The Bliss' sound system was sub-par which probably made the shows unbearable, walked out after 30 minutes.

Children's Programs

It was ok. The gem & the dawn do it MUCH better

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Room steward was exeptional. Most of the staff were ok, again not like the other ships... Personally I think they were less pleasant because they are overworked.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very nice. Observation deck was gorgeous, a treat.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
It was a pretty room. Comfortable for 2 people.

Ship tip

Try to get a refund. Go on another ship. Spoke to many people - and most were unhappy but trying to make the best out of a crappy situation. We paid a LOT of money & most certainly didnt get our moneys worth.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Been here many times before but this time, the area has gone to seed. Tourist trap, filthy.
