    Teen impressions of the Bliss

    We did the Thanksgiving Bliss cruise with our 14yo son. He is active/athletic and loves to be on the bb court. The first few days of the cruise he was bored even though he went to Entourage and did the go karts. After he met a few kids he started having fun and did have a good time but he much preferred the Escape. We had the Encore booked but with no bb court and all the extra fee activities we switched to Escape.

    On the Thanksgiving sailing we talked to several people who did not know they had to book go kart and laser tag as soon as they boarded so when they decided to make reservations it was all sold out. They all were very disappointed.

    If I remember correctly we turned our clocks ahead an hour Thursday night/Friday morning to be back on EST

    Everything... Norwegian ENCORE! Launch Nov 2019

    We were on the Bliss Thanksgiving cruise and have a very active (athletic) teen boy. While he did have a good time, he much preferred the Escape for the ropes course and basketball court. He did the go karts but he didn’t like that he had to make reservations for the week as soon as we boarded. Every time he went there was always some smaller child having difficulty and they would have to stop or go super slow for a couple of laps. We had the Encore booked for next Thanksgiving but he asked if we could do the Escape again so I switched. After seeing all the extra fee activities that will be on the Encore I’m sure we’ll save a lot of money.

    It was nice having the hot tubs up one deck from the pools but on our Thanksgiving Cruise the pool deck was still really crowded.

    Bliss What's Happening Dailies

    It won’t let me open them either and it’s my post and my attachments. Prior to today I was able to see them. When I am home later I will see what I can do.

    I’m sorry you can’t open. I posted them in another thread titled Bliss What’s Happening Dailies.

    Yes those are the dailies from Miami. During our cruise we turned our clocks forward for St. Thomas and Tortola.

    Semi-live from The Bliss - Nov 24-Dec 1

    We were on the Thanksgiving cruise and yes there were folding chairs at some of the tables. They were at the tables at the very front of the garden cafe.

    Just off Thanksgiving Cruise on The Bliss

    We used the touch screens as soon as we boarded. We just went up a deck where no one was and booked shows/activities. The comedy shows sell out very fast. I know you could also go in person to the Social and book things once you get onboard.

    Bliss What's Happening Dailies

    No reservations. If you don’t get there at least 40 minutes ahead of time you won’t get a seat. You could maybe squeeze in but you won’t be able to see much of the stage. We saw lots of people show up right when it started and they had to stand by the door and peak around the wall to see. The venue is very small and the seating is really uncomfortable.

    Just off Thanksgiving Cruise on The Bliss

    We were also on this Thanksgiving Cruise and since I have a teen boy (14) I’ll give you his perspective. My son is a very active, athletic kid. Yes he really missed the sports court. He missed going up there in the mornings after he ate breakfast or just to go up there and meet up with friends he made. Entourage never opened until 11:00 so he just went back to cabin and watched a movie. He didn’t think the go carts were all that great and it was too short. He only did it once but when he wanted to do another time all reservations were gone. The very very small mini golf course was a joke. It definitely was an after thought. He enjoyed Entourage but all he really did there was play video games. He did enjoy the cruise and he did meet some friends but he had a lot more fun on the Escape so we switched our Encore cruise to the Escape.

    I cant wait to see those deck plans either. My teenage son actually did not care for the Bliss so we have no plans on going on the Encore (at least with him).

    It was odd with Le Bistro on the upper deck. I kept thinking the arcade should be there.

    Bliss What's Happening Dailies

    Yes it was a combination of all three shows. It lasted about 45 minutes. There was only one show of Sgt. Peppers and outside of The Cavern Club before the show there was a sign that said due to popular demand they would be doing two shows in the theater on Friday night.
