I was asked to share about my inaugural sailing on the NCL Bliss May 2018 from Long Beach, California:

“Wyland, the artist who painted the hull, was on board and painted in the atrium. It was amazing to meet him in person and see the new features of the ship like the two-level electric-car race track, the tandem Aqua Racer slide and an open-air laser tag course, themed like an abandoned space station.”

Lisa told us why it is the perfect family ship: “The Norwegian Bliss is great for families because they have so many new activities onboard like the race cars, water slides and laser course, but it is also a top choice for luxury cruisers with the Haven area and the high-end spa with the snow room, salt room and sauna. The fantastic choices for food include dessert at Coco’s and Japanese hibachi at Teppanyaki. The live entertainment was outstanding and included the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys, and The Cavern Club, where a Beatles cover band brings the magic of Liverpool to the sea. I think there is something for everyone on Norwegian’s newest ship.”
