I recently had the pleasure of spending a few days on Norwegian Bliss and wanted to share 5 thoughts.
I did not have a chance to eat in all the restaurants but overall enjoyed the food experience. I am always a big fan of a pub on a ship. The Local did not disappoint. Good beer selection and some tasty pub grub. Food Republic was very cool – always a fan of shareables! We also ate at Tappenyaki one night and it was a lot of fun as was to be expected with a great show.
The Go Cart experience was far superior to my expectations. The process to get started was smooth and the track was longer and more adventurous than I anticipated. Most impressive was the speed and handling of the go carts themselves. I was able to move at a good pace and take corners hard. I really thought that it would be a very basic experience and it was truly thrilling.
The décor of the ship was great. Modern and crisp with soothing palettes. One thing I am impressed with is that NCL seems to improve their decor with every ship – they don’t just keep it the same.
I am always impressed with a professional production of Jersey Boys – the story is great; the music is fantastic – and it was no different on the Bliss. We took in a comedy routine at the Social Comedy and Night Club and both the host and the comedian were very entertaining – a nice way to laugh off feeling full after dinner!
This may have been the most impressive space on the ship. Primarily because it was a major upgrade from previous Escape class ships. It was well designed, extremely inviting and I was very impressed with the small food stations they had that allowed you to grab a snack or light lunch during the day.
