A very pleasant experience. We were impressed with the food and service. All employees on this ship are AAA. A great Christmas Cruise for sure.

Dissapointing cruiise by notworthit

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overrated activities, understaffed, need one less sea day and another virgin island stop. Was not up to our prior Norwegian experiences will be choosing another cruise line. Internet ridiculous and does not work-due to overcrowding on ship-not worth money. Offer a reasonable family plan.

Never Norwegian by Jizmomjizmom

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Our third cruise and last cruise with Norwegian. The poor service was inexcusable Rudeness, dirty linens, long waits even with reservations and lost luggage at disembarkment cannot be overlooked. Management was also nonresponsive to our complaints.

Best Crews Ever! by rfbutler63

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I was very impressed with Norwegian Cruise Lines' vessel, crew, and choices of ports. I would have liked more time on the islands. I enjoyed being able to do what I wanted pretty much when I wanted. I was not pleased with the ventilation of the cigarette smoke in the casino but there's always something to fall short. The crew deserves the highest ratings for service, quality, and maturity. They led by example in proper ship-board behavior and deportment. I was embarrassed by the occasional rudeness by a very few of my fellow passengers.

Great Cruise, Top Notch Entertainment, so so food by schmidbnl

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was wonderful. The ship is gorgeous. The entertainment top notch. The two complaints we had were the food and dress codes in the restaurants (not the buffet). Drinks were excellent. The crew were nice and helpful.

Fantastic way to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. by garvin

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were very satisfied with this cruise experience -- the ship, the staff, the food, the excursions. There is always something to do. We enjoyed the Level 15 windows at the front of the ship. So relaxing. And we enjoyed the Garden Restaurant seating at the front of the ship. Great views.

Excellent ship and cruise by lorettaculbreth

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The NCL Bliss is a beautiful ship. The color scheme is very elegant and restful. The Christmas decorations added to the beauty of the ship. The food and drink were wonderful, and the service was exemplary as usual.

very unorganized. WI-Fi was a waste, never got to work. Not much to do after 10pm. don't expect great food. Honesty was happy to get food off the ship and pretty disappointed in the staff.

Great family vacation by Nava003

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Beautiful ship, awesome, hardworking staff. Highly recommend it. We took our one year old and in-laws for the first time and they had a blast. I recommend getting a bigger cabin when traveling with children. The pack and play took most of the walking space which made it challenging. All in all it was a great first family trip for us.

Everything is booked up GOOD LUCK seeing any shows! by Kevin117

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Had several crew roll their eyes at us when asking questions about shows or dinners. All the shows booked up the first day for the entire week and was unable to even see one of them even after showing up hoping for a cancellation. Even the specialty restaurants all booked up but was able to get into two of them after waiting in person. You pay for allot of extras that are given to you by other cruises and the quality is still meh. Very disappointing. :(

Wonderful NCL cruise by mcfloyd2

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was really nice. Wish there was an adult pool, too many people for existing pools. Every single deck chair plus some were taken on sea days, but still enjoyed time in other areas. Waterfront is great, the observation lounge is a great place to relax.

NCL does a lot right. by 4jacks

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We enjoy newer ships and this one really did not disappoint. Sure there are always a few a bumps or head scratchers with anything, but we enjoyed this ship. It seemed there were more things we didn't have a chance to do because there is a lot, so there should never be any complaints there's nothing to do. I wish the food was slightly better, the drinks and bar staff really hustled and the casino staff was great. NCL does a lot right, this was our 4th cruise and re-booked for a future one. We feel at home with NCL.

Couples relaxing vacation by shymalik1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cruise was great! The disembarkation process from the ship was terrible and exhausting having to wait in long lines that weren’t moving. Also, when we were in port at Nassau...they didn’t have a fast way to move people off the ship so we were standing in long lines that weren’t moving! Our feet were sore before we even stepped on land.

One of the worst cruise experiences ever.... by LMPolk

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Worst cruise I've ever been on, to be honest. While I love the cruising experience, NCL truly fell short on this one. There was issue after issue and nobody seemed to know what they were doing to fix even the simplest things.

Nice boat--not much (free) stuff for kids to do by CruiseStyle

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

We do an annual Thanksgiving trip so the cousins (now 9, 10, 13 and 14 y.o.) can all get together and have a good time while the parents relax and enjoy some adult time. On paper, the boat sounds great for kids with go-carts, laser tag and a crazy slide that shoots you over the side of the ship. Problem is the go-carts and laser tag cost extra and the cool slide kids must weigh 99 lbs or more (so our 9 and 10 y.o. couldn't go). And with these other activities taking up so much space, there's no room for the usual basketball/volleyball courts, soccer court, etc... and other kid-centric play areas. But for the adults the ship is great. Good food, GREAT service and some fun shows/activities. Very clean and easy to navigate.
