  3. Norwegian Bliss
I chose this cruise due to the itinerary as coming from Europe and having family in Vancouver meant I could visit them before heading off on our adventure. Big NCL fan and happy to be trying Bliss it was very exciting to see it in Vancouver port. Boarding process was very smooth and easy and as the cruise had come empty from Seattle the day before very nice to have our cabin ready and waiting for us. Our cabin steward was always friendly and on hand to help us with whatever we needed. The cabin was superb, very comfortable and clean and a wonderful view from the balcony. Very important on this cruise due to the spectacular views sailing under both Lions Gate bridge in Vancouver ( A first for Bliss and very scary when you see how close it looks to be to the bridge going under ) and also the Golden Gate in San Francisco. I was very impressed with the ship overall but felt like some of the new high tech features were taking away from some of the more simpler activities. The go carts were very good and highly recommend reserving your time slot as soon as you board as it was fuly booked for the whole week. When it came to our time they were cancelling them due to issues with the track but thankfully after an hour we were able to have our go. People need to keep to the rules though as I got stuck behind someone going incredibly slow and she refused to move to let myself or anyone else pass. We ended up having to cancel the laser tag as the server was down and so the guns didnt work. It kind of took away any fun when we saw that it was all open air so unless you do it in the dark I dont feel it would have been much fun anyway. >By far our ( my boyf and I ) fave place on the ship was the observation lounge. We snuggled onto one of the chaise longe and watched the world pass us by. A bonus having a light buffet there aswell. we actually preferred to be in there than some of the bars of an evening. The restaurants were good. We ate in Manhattan a few nights and speciality restaurants a few nights. Los Lobos was very disappointing, the food was very bland and my boyf didnt end up eating his. Our friends were not to keen on Ocean Place, we enjoyed Cagneys, as always the food was superb and La Cucina very good too. The Havana show was not really to my taste and quite a few people walked out half way through. Saying that though Jersey boys was by far one of the best theatre shows I have seen at sea. Also I spent alot of time watching the different Beatles shows performed by Beatlemania Live at the Cavern club and thought they were brilliant. The entertainment was fun and varied and had plenty to keep you ocupied. I cant wait for the day I get to sail on Bliss again. Wonderful holiday

Superb ship. My favourite so far
