About Norwegian Cruise Line
Travelling with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is synonymous to informality and liberty. NCL names their concept “Freestyle Cruising”. There are no classic “first and second seatings” for dinner – just feel free to dine whenever and wherever you like. Choose from a variety of à la card or buffet restaurants and enjoy the casual atmosphere throughout the ship. No wish for “black tie evenings”? Then NCL just suits you fine. Here is no constraint. The guests on Norwegian Cruise Line’s ships are an interesting international mix and English is the main onboard language – though usually not the only one.
The Norwegian Bliss
The Norwegian Bliss will enter service in spring 2018 and will be as the 13th vessel of Norwegian Cruise Line custom-built for voyages to Alaska and the Caribbean. With a size of 167,800 RT and a length of 325 meters it can accommodate up to 4,000 passengers and thus will be one of the largest cruise ships in the world.
On board of the Norwegian Bliss you can choose among a variety of cabin categories. From the luxurious suite “The Haven” with a 24-hour butler service and a private sundeck to a balcony cabin to a Studio specifically designed for solo travelers – almost no wishes will be left unfulfilled here. All staterooms are very modern and offer enough comfort and space for storing your luggage.
Atmosphere on Board
Like on all of NCL’s ships the atmosphere is very casual. For example the only dress-code for the main restaurants is “no shorts and no swim-wear”. Nevertheless, if you love to wear a festive attire, just feel free to do it – or even attend one of the festive evenings offered in selected restaurants. NCL offers holidays that are perfectly suited for the younger (or young in mind) as well as families. Though you will find lots of sportive and fun activities and will surely have a chance to party at night you can also find quiet and calm places to relax and unwind.
Food and Beverages
You have the choice between many different dining options, bars and lounges on board of the Norwegian Bliss. Some of the specialty restaurants charge an additional fee, including for example the steakhouse. Alternatively you can dine in one of the main restaurants that are already included in the cruise price. We can assure you that the design and the cuisine of the complimentary restaurants is superb already. The Observation Lounge, located at the front of the ship, offers a stunning view and features a full service bar.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
A diversified entertainment program ensures that you will not get bored at any time. Enjoy different musicals and other evening shows in the theater, try your luck at poker in the casino or dance the night away in the night club. For those looking for something quieter, places such as the art gallery, the internet café or the shopping arcade are the right address. You enjoy sports? Then a variety of sporting equipment and different sports courses are at your disposal in the large fitness area. In the wellness area numerous spa treatments, a beauty parlor and several saunas invite you to relax.
You will feel comfortable on board if you are looking for a relaxed vacation with an international atmosphere. NCL is often chosen by young travelers and families, but also single travelers feel very welcome because of the new studio concept on board of the Norwegain Bliss.
