The good and the bad. by liznhutch

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

We had fun on this cruise. There were some issues, but not enough to ruin the cruise. Main issue was crowding and the attitude of the staff other than the room stewards.

Very nice experience. The crew was awesome and did a great job. by caz2222

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I did not like the fact that everything was extra and I felt I was nickle and dimed. Everything was extra. The onboard texting feature, purchased for $10, was horrible. It was very spotty and most times the texts were delayed and made communicating with my family impossible.

Do NOT go on the Bliss by monica93079779

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

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.

Very nice 8 day trip to Florida and the Bahamas. The entertainment aboard the Bliss was exceptional, and better than expected.

Not Happy with Bliss by jenz1072

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

While we usually love Norwegian, and cruising, this was the worst experience we have had. All because the ship is so big, they struggled with accommodating everyone, it was too overcrowded and very challenging to get around, and get on elevators. We all got sick too, and had to see doctors when we got home. We all had bronchitis.

Could be better by danmarc67074523

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

They missed the island and that was only warm day and headed back to ny. The dining rooms food needed more variety and better quality. Buffet not great.

This was my first time cruising. It was a learning experience since I have nothing to compare Norwegian bliss too.

The worst cruise vacation that I ever had. The ship was too big, understaffed and they have no smile on their face, always have a hard time finding a table at the Garden Cafe, long lines waiting for shows, basically everywhere by tomo9262917986

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship was understaffed, the staff hardly has a smile on their face. The food in Manhattan Dining were very salty. I would like to have a relax vacation but instead I am waiting in a long line for shows, always have a hard time finding a table in Garden Cafe. The lounges were too small and there were no floor space for people to dance.

Somewhat disappointed by kahluafan44

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

glad to have experienced our first cruise, the boat was huge, the staff was awesome, but we did get bored because even though there’s something to do all the time half of those things you don’t want to do. Also the weather affected the outdoor activities. Personally think they should have their own dock so we could’ve experience Norwegians Island and also an indoor swimming pool would’ve helped

Great ship, great customer service, great cruise. by tomnmaryb

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

PROS: Great ship, great service, great stage shows, great food inc Specia;ty restaurants. CONS: Children all over the place at all times of the day and night. In all the bars, even after 10 PM. Wheelchairs seem to have almost vanished, only to be replaced by strollers everywhere.

NCL cruise 5*, departing NY in winter 1* by Bardeg

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

It was my 5th cruise with NCL, second from NY but first in winter and for sure last departing NY in winter. Here is way: 1. Because the weather, they cancelled one port and instead we were on the sea one more day. 2. For 4 days we couldnt go outside because the strong wind, so we couldnt enjoy waterfront area and of course sundeck. If you departing Miami for example, you have nice weather right away, think about it when you booking your cruise. Even the wind will be not too strong it was way too cold to be outside, so you really wasting 4 days being outside 3. We had only 2 days of nice weather, one day in Orlando so we can enjoyed sundeck with Jacuzzi, and one day in Bahamas (almost all day we were on land) If you never cruise on Haven, you should spend the extra money and try at least ones. That was my first Haven and i will not book another cruise in other cabin then haven, it is completely different experience, you feel like you have the ship for yourself. Haven restaurant has the same menu every day but the food and service is amazing. Bliss, crew are amazing, cant wait to go on Encore or Joy.

Not happy by

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

This was my 2nd time with Norwegian my first experience was really good but apparently this experience was not as pleasant due to a misbehavior by a shore excursion member and less activities, cancellations of privet island in Bahamas, food was not as good as it was in Norwegian Escape, food at the Manhattans was terrible, local was ok not as good as Oseahan, very long wait for the food to arrive. This time I was very disappointed by Norwegian, next time I will think twice to book Norwegian. Getting on to the ship we were in line for over 2 hours very slow check In and only few people were working, system was down was their excuse. Top of all this A member from Shore Excursion desk name Abijeet misbehave badly, no apologies were received. My experience was not good at all. My kids booked go car and laser tag they were canceled last minute that was the main reason to go in Bliss to experience go car but they cancelled them on us 😡😡😞😞😞 , nothing was offered for cancellations to go on a private island Strip Cay.....

Great trip on the Bliss by amleventhal

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We loved the Bliss and had a great cruise director from England, Jake and a great assistant Alex from Ukraine. The boat is new and extra=observation lounge, great shows, great activities, great parties, great restaurants, great overall experience. The only downside was the elimination of the skyline dancing replaced by slot machines & elimination of the dance/music in the Manhattan room. The sugarcane lounge had the smallest dance area for Latin dancing along the corridor so if you enjoy Latin dancing- the older boats are for you. If you enjoy ballroom dancing- the older boats are for you. Otherwise, Bliss is A+. We booked 2 more cruises on the Bliss in 2020. Happy New Year.

Noisy and crowded by yomamah

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first trip on the Bliss. We have been to the ports before and haven’t planned any big excursions. Everything that we didn’t plan before the cruise started Became unavailable once we were on board. I thought that the specialty restaurants are way overpriced. The ship is beautiful, but the large crowds and noise made it less enjoyable for me as a frequent cruiser.

Lower Grade by walid308

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This the 14th cruise for us and it is very obvious that Norwegian quality went down in food and entertainment, they push you to go to specialty dinner , we were shocked when wh asked for a pitcher of water tap from room service and they wanted to charge us $7:50, it was smelly and cheap of them , time to move to another cruise company

Nice big ship by tuna1258

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

First cruise on the Gem was awesome Bliss needs improvement more free things to do than eat and sit by the pool. Need more selection on tee shirts and clothes and maybe more shops.

Excellent Cruise Itinerary by merrifjs4291

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Seemed like the buffet was for older people (older than us). Fruit was always honeydew and watermelon. (allergic to these). Deserts were very bland. One pizza station. Cheese, pepperoni, Various. Overall I will not go on this ship again.
