    Embarking on the bliss

    Silly question but at what deck do we embark on? Are there touchscreens close by? I booked this ship primarily for the go-karts and want to be the first few to get on and book! any tips? What time should I be at port? I sail out of Miami bext month!

    Bliss Boarding Question

    We are a group of 27 traveling. We are on different decks around the ship. I was reading that depending on what deck you are on controls what terminal you go to check in. Is that correct ? Most of us are coming from a hotel with a shuttle and we are on different decks. I read something about odd and even decks. None of us are on Haven. Thank you for any help.

    Menus for Bliss

    We have not sailed with NCL before, and aren't quite sure what to expect as far as main dining room menus. Does anyone have pictures? We will be sailing The Pacific Northwest in September. Thank you!
  4. Does anyone recently off the Bliss know if they are showing the NFL Playoffs and if so, where is the best place to watch?
  5. My family will be boarding the Bliss in March for Spring Break. We have been on the Escape and Getaway and they totally enjoyed the experience. When I mentioned that we booked the Bliss and that it has a racetrack they were thrilled but searched the web to see if it also had a basketball court, (it doesn't). I have 3 teens ages 15,16 and 17 (One son and 2 two nephews), is there anything physical that they can do on the Bliss? They enjoyed the ropes courses etc. on the aforementioned cruises and I'm hoping they won't be bored. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.....

    Laser Tag on Bliss

    Is there an unlimited price option for Laser Tag on the Bliss, similar to how there's an unlimited option for Go-Carts on the Bliss? Apologies if this question was already asked. I did search the forum but didn't find an answer. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/search/?q=laser tag Thanks!
  7. First-time cruisers here. Super excited about my upcoming trip on the Norwegian Bliss in two weeks. Just a quick question. I think I heard someone mentioning that there will be discount offered (20% off or something) for excursions booked on first day of the cruise. Is that the case with Norwegian? I have picked the excursions from NCL but not sure if I should book them online now or wait till I get on the ship for the discount. Please help, thanks!

    Bliss Haven/Margaritaville

    So I may be working on outdated information, but if I'm correct, is the Haven guests on the bliss have complimentary lunch on embarkation day. Is that still correct? I also believe that if you go to the Haven restaurant, you can get non-Haven food (at cost) brought from other restaurants. Is that correct? So if we put 1 and 2 together, can you get a free nachos volcano on embarkation day in the Haven restaurant at lunch time? Thanks!

    Observation Lounge - Bliss

    NCL thanks for doing this on the Bliss......the best place on the ship. I hope all of you get to experience the Bliss.
  10. What's everyone's take on Prohibition the Musical on the Bliss this winter season? I didn't see any reports (although I might have missed them). Am trying to decide if it's worth the additional money to go and see this show or if it's something that can be passed by without missing anything spectacular. Thoughts would be very much appreciated!! Am sailing on the Bliss in March, and am making my list of things that I need to book as soon as I get on the ship. Thanks everyone, and happy sailing Jill, NCL Norway RC Sovereign of the Seas NCL Bliss

    Bliss vs Joy

    Are there going to be differences, or essentially the exact same? We just did the Bliss and it was wonderful, however we are doing our first Alaskan cruise this summer and are considering the Joy as an option. I just didnt feel like the Bliss (assuming Joy is identical) offered any options specific for Alaska such as enclosed pools, many hot tubs etc. I read the Joy will undergo some upgrades, but dont know exactly what those are. Any insight?
  12. We are a group of 10 (5 couples) that would like to get VIBE passes. We also need to schedule some comedy times. I have been through this many times, but trying to be very efficient. Can anyone tell me who has cruised on the Bliss very recently where to go to get VIBE passes? (and I'm guessing one person from each cabin needs to be present?) Also, Where do we go for comedy reservations and a few dinner ressies that we can not make online! THANKS!
  13. Just got off the Bliss and what a let down. We are Platinum members and always stay in Haven cabins so this was not our first rodeo with NCL. Let me start with the positives. The ship was beautiful and we loved the Wyland art on the ship bow. Through gale force winds and 8 foot seas she was very stable. Almost no rocking. The interior art is very nice and the Haven forward facing lounge (designed for Alaska) is amazing. Boarding and disembarkation ran smooth for Haven guests as it always does. The Haven staff was excellent as was our Butler and room steward. Now for the not so good. The staff seemed overwhelmed and confused. Even in the Haven they had two bartenders who were not trained well. Asking questions of staff in the main hotel would yield different answers for the same question. One employee at the Garden Cafe could not speak english. It was a point and nod deal. The worst part was the food. Both "pay extra" restaurants and free ones. I have always enjoyed NCL food especially in the pay places but this time its as if the had a machine that sucked all flavor out of the food. Now I understand tastes change from one person to the next so I am only commenting on our experience. Maybe others loved it. But I can say the filet at Cagneys was no where near the quality of meat we had on other ships. Having gristle in a filet is unusual. Especially when I wrote a review of our time on the Escape and commented how I cut my filet with a fork. Not on Bliss. And I do have the mention that the new "Q" BBQ was not good. No flavor at all and the meat was low quality. On to activities. KART racing was fun. We did it twice but be aware we saw some aggressive driver put smaller kids into the wall with no punishment from NCL. They say they will kick people off for that but they don't and honestly that cant see everything at once. Lazer tag was very fun. Completely safe for all ages. Water slides are fun but its a water slide. Nothing special. All in all I would only cruise the Bliss again in Alaska. For Caribbean there are better options.
  14. Does anyone have a copy of the menu for the Haven restaurant? I found numerous ones online but they are nearly impossible to read. Thanks--
  15. I need some help final payment is due soon on my cruise for the BLISS i have a group booking with a travel agent. She said she can help me make reservations for dinner for my group, there are 12 of us 6 cabins. do I have to go thru her or can I call NCL and make it with them. Also for the shows. i have read that the ones on line fill up so quickly and you have to do it on the ship as soon as you get on we want to do them all together. Same nights. Finally payment is on a Saturday and if I wait till Monday to meet with her I afraid they will be gone. does anyone know if they fill up that quickly? I know when you use a travel agent all changes, payments and questions must go thru them.
  16. I will say we have been on 43 cruises...The Bliss is beautiful but the service is horrible and the pool deck is way too small for a ship this size.

    Haven on the Bliss

    Is Thermal Suite access included in all Haven rooms? Or is that a separate purchase? Thank you!

    ATM on Bliss?

    Can anyone confirm or deny the existence of an ATM aboard?
  20. The coffee makers in the cabin on the Bliss do they use the coffee pods?
  21. Are some of the venues cold such that you might want a sweatshirt even when sailing in the caribbean? Does a windy night affect Laser Tag or Go Karts? I want to say I came across a reference and wondered if it would be better NOT to book either for the first night sailing out of Miami. Is there a clock in the room? None of the coffee drinks at specialty restaurants with alcohol are covered with the UBP, right? Does the Local have same darts/pool/bowling setup as Escape? Is the snow room in spa area and just for thermal pass users? Never made it to NCL cold room things even though I'm pretty sure I've sailed on ships with them, seem to forget they exist. Thanks.

    Bliss or Joy for Alaska?

    we've sailed both the Glacier Bay route and the Sawyer Glacier route. Joy itinerary includes Icy Straight Point and its a Saturday to Saturday sail vs. Sunday to Sunday which is a huge plus for us. any major differences between the ships, service, shows, etc?
  24. I've seen posts about the beer tasting at The District but am not sure if this is by invitation only or if it is something I can sign up for. Does anyone have more information? Thank you!
  25. I know some previous posts have asked about what nights "Jersey Boys' and "Prohibition" are on the Bliss. I just was able to get a schedule for my cruise that's 120 days out. JB is still on Wed. and Thurs. (days 5 and 6), but it looks like "Prohibition," which used to be the same days, is now on Day 1, 2, and 4 -- so from what I can gather they have added another day for the show and it's now on different nights than JB. I like that better, because I want to make sure I see both.
