First Look at Norwegian Bliss

 

Sunday was a big day in Las Vegas for Norwegian Cruise Line and the Norwegian Bliss reveal event.

Many of Norwegian’s familiar cruise ship features will remain…while a few of them will be tossed and replaced or redesigned.  One of my favorite eateries on many of Norwegian’s ships, O’Sheehan’s, will be gone but in it’s place will be The Local Bar (will it still offer those fabulous french fries in a basket?).

There will also be many firsts at sea activities, including the largest competitive, tw0-level race track at sea and an open-air laser tag course.  At approximately 167,800 gross tons and accommodating 4,000 guests, Norwegian Bliss is being built in Germany and scheduled for delivery in Spring 2018.

Rather than going on in superlatives and descriptives, here are first-look photos from the Norwegian Bliss reveal event.

Kids from six months to just under three years old, will have an dedicated space in the Guppies playroom under the supervision of Early Years Coordinators who host sensory-play activities for parents and babies including messy play, exploration, music and movement.

Where the Norwegian Bliss Will Cruise

After a transatlantic crossing on April 21, 2018, Norwegian Bliss will cruise through the Panama Canal en route to Los Angeles and then Seattle.  The first summer season will see the Norwegian Bliss  sail weekly seven-day Alaska cruises departing Seattle every Saturday from Pier 66. The ship’s itinerary will feature calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia, along with scenic glacier cruising.

The inaugural winter season beginning in November 2018, Norwegian Bliss will cruise seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruises each Saturday from PortMiami, featuring calls in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas.
