Meet The New Norwegian Bliss Ship! Friday 04 May, 2018

Norwegian Bliss, the first cruise ship custom-built with features and amenities for the ultimate Alaska cruise experience.

Measuring 994 feet long, 136 feet wide, and at a gross registered tonnage of 168,028, she embarked on her journey down the Ems River and up to the North Sea in reverse, making the narrow passage through Meyer Werft’s sea lock, with less than four feet clearance.

When she arrives into Seattle in June, guests will be excited to experience many new first-at-sea activities, including the largest two-level race track at sea, new dining experiences, such as Q Texas Smokehouse and Coco’s a chocolate and treat shop, the Tony Award®-Winning Broadway Show Jersey Boys and much more for guests to explore.

Check out some of the exclusive amenities and activities only the Bliss Ship has in store for sailing.


So many different ways to get inspired. So many new experiences. So many exciting activities to uncover. Welcome aboard Norwegian Bliss.


Slide into the time of your life. With two multistory waterslides on board, Norwegian Bliss let’s you rush to adventure over and over again. Make it the best of three on Aqua Racer, our tandem waterslide at sea. And then get a thrill as you whoosh over the side of the ship on the double loop, Ocean Loops. Or call it a lazy day and lounge by the pools and hot tubs with a frozen drink in hand. However you like to make a splash, the Aqua Park is overflowing with excitement.


Our newest and most exciting ship, Norwegian Bliss, will make waves with all the incredible experiences you’ll have on board. Zip around hairpin turns on the largest racetrack at sea and shoot for the stars in galactic laser tag. Soak in stunning vistas from our 180-degree Observation Lounge. After witnessing another amazing sunset, you can journey back in time for a drink at Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical. Or jump forward several decades to the rockin’ Sixties with the Tony Award®-winning musical, Jersey Boys.


Norwegian Bliss offers a wide range of accommodations designed for the way you cruise. Enjoy splendid luxury in The Haven by Norwegian®. Unpack your family in comfy, connecting staterooms. Relax with an ocean breeze on your private balcony. Take your own adventure in a cozy Studio for solo travelers. Or live it up at sea with our collection of Suites, from well-appointed Spa Suites to spacious two-bedrooms. And no matter which room you choose, you’re always guaranteed a great place to rest.

More than a slice of paradise, the staterooms inside The Haven are the definition of modern, lavish bliss. Featuring private balconies, luxury showers and amazing views, this is an experience like no other.


Human colonizers have lost contact with Planet Earth. It’s up to you to find them while searching an abandoned spaceship in this fast-action experience at sea. Whether friends or family are joining you on this mission, the fate of the world is in your hands.


See the ocean blur by as you take hairpin turns on the largest racetrack at sea. Get ready for a thrilling ride on this two-level competitive track while putting your driving skills to the test. Blue skies above and turquoise waters below!


Travel back in time to January 16, 1919 – the eve of the Prohibition era – for a rip roaring good time with the interactive show, Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical. Set in world famous Madam Lulu’s New Orleans speakeasy, tantalizing madams will regale you with tales of bootleggers and some of the era’s most famous tunes that will have you dancing in the aisles. Savor five of your own Prohibition Era specialty cocktails, each with a modern twist, while enjoying an unforgettable night with Miss Lulu and her girls.

Please note that this show is not suitable for children under 16.


Experience sheer awe from our 180-degree indoor Observation Lounge – offering Norwegian’s most expansive views at sea. More than 3,500 square feet of floor-to-ceiling windows provide spectacular vistas while cruising past snow-capped mountains. Take time to relax with a complimentary bite to eat morning, noon and night. Interactive screens will help identify every incredible view, whether the glaciers of Alaska or the pristine beaches of The Caribbean. And with a full-service bar, you can toast colorful sunsets with your favorite cocktail.


Depart from Los Angeles on a 7- or 8-Day journey to the enchanting Mexican Riviera on Norwegian Bliss. Rappel through cascading waterfalls in Puerto Vallarta. Let daring cliff divers off the coast of Mazatlán take your breath away or sigh in relaxation while lounging on a picture-perfect beach in Cabo San Lucas. Discover the best of the Mexican Riviera and then return on board Norwegian Bliss to enjoy legendary entertainment and spectacular vistas.


More than a journey, traversing the world’s greatest shortcut is a rite of passage. Depart aboard Norwegian Bliss to incredible ports throughout Central and South America. Shop for leather goods along the cobblestone streets of Cartagena. Explore the rolling hills and riverbeds of Costa Rica. Marvel at the sheer grandeur of the Panama Canal from our 180-degree Observation Lounge on board. Book today for your chance to check off that bucket list!

Norwegian Bliss will then begin her passage across the Atlantic Ocean on April 21 and will arrive to the US on May 3, where she will begin her inaugural tour, the most extensive of any ship in Norwegian Cruise Line history.  Events will take place in New York City, Miami, and Los Angeles, and then will conclude with a christening ceremony on May 30 at the new Pier 66 at the Port of Seattle in Washington State, followed by her inaugural cruise.

Following the preview events and christening, Norwegian Bliss will offer cruises to Alaska beginning June 2.  She will spend her summer sailing seven-day cruises to Alaska, and fall season cruising to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles.  In winter of 2018 she will sail to the Caribbean from Miami, and in the 2019 fall/winter season she will cruise from New York City to Florida, the Bahamas and Caribbean.
