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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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.

Not happy by

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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.....

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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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.

The BEST experience ever!!! It was my first cruise, Will be doing more!!! by IRISHSOB

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I had an AMAZING time!!! I had an issue in the ADULT section of the pool area. I am trying to relax in the hot tub when a family and their 2 children in diapers came in the hot tub. There is a childrens section where they can play. NOT in a hot tub.

Loved this ship!!! by sharron03

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I really don't care where I go, just put me on a ship. I cruise for the enjoyment of the ship. The Bliss fulfilled all my expectations and I will cruise with NCL again!

First Cruise, had a lot of fun, but, they could have done a lot better! by hotelcali4nia1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

There are major improvements Norwegian needs to make, mostly with the Go-karts, some minor ones throughout the ship. More smoking sections, advising passengers of expected rough seas and closures of on-board activities, better notification of closed activities etc. But overall we met a lot of great people, staff and passengers. And had a great time. I would recommend this ship, just beware when buying any extra's!

Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

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.

My worst trip ever. Staff was poorly trained. Not enough staff. by Andy4248

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Your smoking on this ship is very unsafe. Your going to get a law suit. You make older people walk all the way to the back of the ship. On the 17 floor and have the time it wet some going to slip and fall. The 7 floor casino is close when your in port . That not properly vented . Feel sorry for you help in the casino. It will effect there health one day . They should be able to go the the 16 floor were it's open air to smoke . It no worst than your smoke stack on the ship I watched it. Over all I feel you should give me back 2800.00 of the money I spent to be unhappy for 13 day . We had a large group of use on that ship and half of them were first timer to cruise. They were not happy properly will never cruise again . Thank you for your time Andrew Decoff and Marie Decoff !!!

Not My Favorite...but....Still Vacation by emittenschultz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss

We chose to take the great and good moments on vacation and take that and run with it. We were ready to go home by the end of our sailing. We were extremely thankful to be on vacation but we figured out a few things on this cruise. 12 day is too long for us. I think our sweet spot is 9 days. Also we will never go out of NYC again. Way too chaotic. We also decided that the breakaway plus class ships are too big. Some of the things we were looking forward to NCL didn't deliver on and some things we weren't expecting happened (like coast guard medical helicopter evacuation on day 2). Overall we will still stay loyal to NCL as we won't take one not best sailing as an end all be all. We will be more picky of our ships in the future as well as departure port

Disappointing.. by thunter1224

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

I was disappointed with the design of the ship. I talked to a few people that had been on over 50 cruises. And they rated this ship and cruise as one of their worst cruises..

AWESOME 12 NIGHT CRUISE!!! by daddydoug11

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Bliss

It was a beautiful cruise that at times, on the colder sea days felt "long." However, it was quite restful, and way better than being at work! I'd do it again in a New York minute!!!

Lower Grade by walid308

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

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

Great trip on the Bliss by amleventhal

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Bliss / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

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.
