Onboard the bliss- any questions?

Recommended Posts

Are you Platinum?  If so, what is the credit for the entrees?  I see online that it was $20 but may have gone up to either $25 or $35.  We head out on the Bliss next week so make sure no one gets sick! 🙂

I’m boarding the bliss on Sunday. How has the buffet been with the Coronavirus precautions they put in place?

I would love to know what the green swipe games are in the arcade.  Apparently those are the ones include with the arcade package.  I'm wondering if there are enough green swipe games to make the package worthwhile.

The Latitudes Reward page says its $35:

For items over this amount, an upcharge will be added to your onboard account. No restaurant substitutions. Names vary by ship. Restaurants not available on all ships. On Norwegian Bliss, Moderno is replaced by Los Lobos or Q. On Norwegian Joy, Moderno is replaced by Food Republic or Q. In Food Republic, the benefit entitles each guest to a total food value of $35 per guest. On Norwegian Encore, Moderno or La Cucina is replaced by Los Lobos or Q.

Hey all. Trip has been great so far. On time at each port and weather allowed us to get to GSC. Today the waves are rough so the bags are out in the Stairwells. 


I’m not platinum yet, so no idea. 
 

They are not doing anything in the buffet for corona. I was surprised after reading about it on these boards. One of the officers told me that it was just for the first week, back to normal now. 
 

As far as the arcade package, my 12 year old son said it’s not worth it. Most games are not included. We did notice that the bowing was also not part of the package. On the epic last year, they had pool and darts, but not on the bliss. Seems like it’s not worth a couple hundred bucks in our opinions.

I have 9180 booked, any info on location, I'm thinking of upgrading if it's that bad. Supposedly it almost above the Brewhouse which I think we can tolerate as we would like the sound of the music while on our Balcony.....not ideal, but tolerable.

Do they still have the band "Siglo" playing on board?  If you are a gambler please check what the craps minimum bet is.  TIA

My son and his family are on that cruise also with a large group.......we were wondering if the weather was going to be rough since there was a storm in the Carolinas that brought some snow there and was apparently heading out to sea......safe cruising!

Hmm, you might miss out then. Let me see if I can dig up the exact date their contract ends...

 

Edit: Aw, a comment from them on their Facebook page says their contract ends May 10.

We'll be on Bliss for the 21-night Panama Canal cruise, and I was thinking of bringing aboard a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle (to leave on the ship) -- is there a Library or other quiet common area where I could leave it for others to work on?  When we were on Westerdam on a Trans-Pacific, they had several going at one time.

9180 is over the brewhouse, for context, it’s more over the entrance than the bar itself. Not sure about the music traveling. 
 

Craps table is currently at $10 min with 3/4/5 odds. Blackjack has been at $10 all week with 6/5 on bj. 
 

There is a library, but pretty small. There is lots of space in the observation lounge for a puzzle like that. I have no idea if they’d allow it to stay. Our cruise has 1100 kids so space is at a premium. Plus, today is really rough seas so I could see the puzzle sliding off a table with the ship rocking like this.

If there's a place to leave it, it will be on deck 6, starboard, just forward of the Atrium.  From the Atrium you'll look at the screen then walk to the right of the big screen and it's down that hallway, behind the photo studio.

Would you believe it's actually labeled "Library & Card room" on the deck plan?

Are the go-carts open during port days during the day time?  Also, do they offer day passes for go-carts or are there only passes for the entire cruise?  Also would be nice to see a photo of all the beer on tap at the BrewHouse.

Is there any noticeable change in passenger demographics with the new passport and travel restrictions?

Hopefully the photos come thru, WiFi is spotty. 
 

For the go karts, they were running yesterday in Nassau so yes to port. This was a bad week for the karts, though. Between the 4900 passengers and the weather today, I haven’t been able to race.
