Take a First-Hand Preview Tour of the “Norwegian Bliss”
Recently, I had the privilege of attending a preview cruise on the “Norwegian Bliss” from Norwegian Cruise Line. When I stepped aboard, the first thing I noticed was the neutral and modern color pallet. Gone are the in-your-face, bright colors. I was surprised at just how luxurious this made the ship feel. There are just over 2,000 cabins on the ship, ranging from the single accommodation Studio cabins clear up to the Haven Deluxe Owner’s Suite that will accommodate six. I could go on and on about the beautiful cabins, but then I would never get to all of the cool and amazing things this ship offers.
The “Bliss” offers many new and innovative activities on this ship. The most obvious being go-karts. You might wonder how much fun go-karts will be on a ship, but I can tell you I was very impressed at how much fun they were. Something else new for a cruise ship is laser tag. I did not have a chance to play, but those who did had a fun time. The centralized pool area includes the pool, splash area for kids and three waterslides. One of the waterslides even goes out over the side of the ship. It looks exhilarating, but I wouldn’t know because I am too chicken to go on it.
The entertainment on board is top-notch. I was able to catch two Broadway-style shows the “Bliss” offers, “Jersey Boys” and “Havana”. You easily forget you are on a ship watching “Jersey Boys” because the cast is so amazingly talented. There might have been a few ladies in the audience swooning over the gentleman playing Franky Valli because he was so convincing. “Havana” gives you a wonderful perspective into the nightlife scene of 1950s Havana, Cuba. A love story and family drama are all tied in to make “Havana” a colorful and lively show. If you are not in the mood for a Broadway show, there are endless places to catch live entertainment.
Whether you are an early riser or are up all night, this ship offer something for everyone. Keep your eyes on our future group trips, and with any luck, we just might have a group trip to offer you on this ship!
