Norwegian Bliss - Mexican Riviera Cruise 10/27/18; Beautiful modern ship, excellent food, courteous & friendly staff, great amenities...overall an excellent experience! by lauraluvcruisn

Beautiful modern ship, excellent food, courteous & friendly staff, great amenities...overall an excellent experience! Lots of activities such as the water slides, go carts, laser tag, etc. Not understanding why there were so many complaints about crowding on this ship and lack of elevators. Maybe the complaints were geared more towards the Alaska cruise where, due to the cold weather, everyone was inside the ship, making it more crowded everywhere. On my Mexican Riviera cruise, the elevators were never crowded and there was always something to do or somewhere to hang out. One suggestion about booking restaurants and shows is, if you are able to book everything online, great. But NCL only releases 1/3 of the reservations online, then doesn't allow additional online bookings after that. So, I would opt for the earliest boarding time, and as soon as you get on the ship, go to deck 6 to book your restaurants and shows before they fill up. You can also use any of the electronic kiosks on the walls found throughout the ship - super handy.

Overall review by teresayau139

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall is good for our first cruise, except the detouring part which is very, very disappointing, because we spent big money and want to see Mexico. It is difficult for us to take 3 week vacation. This could be a trip of our lifetime. We truly believe the cruise line should compensate the difference in price. It definitely not costing the same to San Francisco than to Mexico. It is not fair!!!

Disappointing Itinerary by mbeck1515

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

Ship was supposed to go to Mexican Rivera. Due to a Hurricane, we were diverted to San Francisco, San Diego and Ensenada. Needless to say, we were not dressed for the cold weather in San Francisco. We should have been given the option to take the cruise while in port. We are certain they knew that they were not going and decided to inform us an hour out of the harbor. I guess profits vs a loss of profits that dictated what they did. Management is not willing to work with any of our 18 passengers. The ship is new and nice. Had some issues with cleanliness of the cabin upon arriving and the lack of personality of one of the dining room waitresses. Other than that, the food was good, shows were excellent and plenty to do on board. Many of us never got off the ship, as a number of people lived in San Francisco and San Diego in the past and had no desire to revisit them.

Relaxing Cruise by LandM

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a nice relaxing cruise! The ship is beautiful. We were on it in August for an Alaskan cruise and loved it so much we booked this one. We have done this itinerary many times so we did not do any excursions. We did not even get off the ship in Cabo which was great because we had the hot tub to ourselves.

Bigger is not Better. by sharma818

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship is big and becomes a Human Zoo most of the times. Design is not impressive as lot of space is wasted or under utilized at the cost of rooms. Decor is average , nothing to be "bliss ed "about, as it is like any other ship. Sad that the revenue is generated by nickle and dimming. Complain-they switched our stateroom without any notification, from 15th floor to 9th floor.

Overall, awesome! Would recommend to enlarge the smoking area by also allowing smoking in the exterior so the room is not so smoke congested.

Eight days of bliss, on NCL Bliss by rbittleman20509

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Mazaltan port of call was canceled due to Hurricane Sergio, Port of Ensenada, very poor and run down area, not very clean.I think this port should be eliminated from itinary. Ship was beautiful, stateroom corridors were very narrow, could be a challenge for some people to navigate. Crew and Staff were very friendly and professional, lots of smiles, when I needed help they were very helpful.

above average Mexican riviera cruise by hardyw414

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Beautiful well appointed ship.. very clean... friendly staff ... more bartenders needed and more wait staff needed for pool service... Cagney's food was below average. Specialty dining not worth the extra cost and service was extremely slow. Also I do not recommend Wifi and internet package.... Excellent water slides and kid wet areas. The Spa was too large which in turn took away from the gym area.

Mexican Riviera by ealtiery

I thought the ship was beautiful. Staff were amazing. I like going to the shows at night so was disappointed that they only had one big show. Pool are was small for a ship that size. They really need to add a second pool area on these size ships.

N.C.L.should check out this San Fran. tour/restaurant where we were upstairs and had to go by a service area with slippy tiled floor I had to warn our table.poor quality food. main item was noodles under cooked Luke warm served with broccoli.

AMAZING and unique cruise by marcquessa

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We went on this cruise as part of our honeymoon. It was beautiful! Vancouver was rainy, so bring ponchos and an umbrella or else you'll pay an arm and a leg for them there. There are two seasons in Vancouver.... wet and slightly less wet. Make sure you check out the totem poles! Victoria we decided to go off the beaten path and drove up into the highlands to admire the local hikes. If you didn't check out the totem poles in Vancouver, this will be your last chance! Take some time to walk around fisherman's wharf too! Both days at sea were SO relaxing! The pools were perfect and there was plenty of seating! Hardly anyone got into the pool, so it was nice and roomy! We did not have enough time in San Francisco. Just a couple hours to walk around. Plan to get off the ship late. That way it doesn't ruin your time. The line to get off the boat started by the back stairs and wound all the way to the front stairs. Plan to wait. Plan to wait. PLAN TO WAIT. The room was lovely! There was a weird smell to the corridors to the room. But it smelled like some sort of cleaning products. Weird, but clean. Overall, I plan on boarding the Norwegian Bliss again. It was a wonderful experience. The entertainment was great. The service was great. I can't wait to go back!
