Tour of Norwegian Bliss

We were fortunate enough to be invited to a two night inaugural cruise on board Norwegian Bliss.  The Bliss is Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship, and boy is she a beauty.  The Bliss is built to sail in Alaska, which she will do during summer season.  She will then sail out of Los Angeles doing a Mexican Riviera itinerary before making her way to Miami via a 14 night Panama Canal sailing.

The Bliss is in the Breakaway Plus class, joining the Norwegian Escape.  The Bliss carries about 4,004 guests based on double occupancy.  There are a total of 20 decks on which you will find staterooms, restaurants (both complimentary and specialty), bars, the casino, shops, children's programs, the theater, laser tag and go carts (yes, I wrote laser tag and go carts).

I have always loved sailing with Norwegian Cruise Lines, for many reasons.  I love the Freestyle cruising aspect (no formal nights required).  I love the specialty dining options.  I love the entertainment.  I will be on the Bliss for a full sailing in October for my national conference, so I am really looking forward to experiencing this ship.  We will also be sailing in The Haven, which is an exclusive area which has suites, it's own pool, it's own bar, it's own lounge along with butler and concierge service.  It is really the only way to sail, and once you do it, it is very difficult to sail any other way.

I wanted to share a few photos from our brief sailing.  It is an amazing ship, and it seems with each new ship Norwegian steps up its game.  The ship is classy, fun and comfortable.  There are so many areas to hang out in whether you feel like relaxing and taking in the scenery, or if you are looking for a lively spot.
