Brief Description:
Norwegian Bliss is headed to Alaska for her maiden season and will also be the first Norwegian Cruise Line ship to make her debut in Seattle, with cruises beginning May 2018. The ship will offer weekly seven-day cruises to ports including Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway, Alaska, as well as Victoria, British Columbia, along with scenic glacier cruising.Continuing its tradition of featuring original artwork on its ship’s hulls, Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed the signature art designed by one of the world’s premier marine life artists, Wyland, for its upcoming new ship Norwegian Bliss, which will cruise to Alaska beginning in June 2018.

Norwegian Bliss to feature the largest race track at sea, original new dining concepts, heart-racing waterslides that round the side of the ship and more. Norwegian Cruise Line revealed features and amenities for Norwegian Bliss, the line’s sixteenth ship, which will sail to Alaska and the Caribbean with select voyages to the Mexican Riviera beginning in June 2018. Norwegian Bliss will boast many firsts at sea for the global market including the largest competitive race track at sea and an open-air laser tag course. The ship’s exciting new features will join the brand’s signature elements of freedom and flexibility that Norwegian is known for including a myriad of dining options and a vibrant onboard atmosphere fuelled by a multitude of bars and lounges, award-winning youth programs and more. Following the popularity aboard Norwegian Bliss’ sister ship in China, Norwegian Joy, guests will be able to put the pedal to the metal with a two level electric-car race track. The competitive track, the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, will rev up the hearts of all who race around her many twists and turns with four speed settings accommodating novice, intermediate and advanced drivers, reaching up to 30 miles per hour -- with a special “turbo boost” available on each lap. The electric cars run silent so as to not disturb those seeking to enjoy the serene environment.At the open-air laser tag course guests can test their agility. Themed as an abandoned space station, the course comes to life both day and night as guests go into stealth-mode and compete against family and friends with state-of-the art laser guns.

Junior cruisers can enjoy themselves at the Kids’ Aqua Park. The little ones will also have a blast at Splash Academy, the fleet’s award-winning complimentary youth program offering age-appropriate supervised activities for children aged three to 12. Teens aged 13 through 17 will enjoy their own space Entourage, adjacent to the ship’s arcade Even tiny cruisers, ages six months to just under three years old, will have an dedicated space with the fleet’s largest Guppies playroom, where Early Years Coordinators will host sensory-play activities for parents and babies. In line with its youth programming across the fleet, Norwegian Bliss will offer a wide range of family-friendly activities for guests to enjoy including family balloon twisting, interactive games and the Family Glow Party. The flavours aboard Norwegian Bliss will travel south-of-the-border with Los Lobos, an outpost of the brand’s new restaurant serving elevated Mexican cuisine that made its debut in 2016 aboard Norwegian Dawn offering upscale, modern take on traditional favourites. Between Los Lobos and Norwegian’s signature restaurant Cagney’s Steakhouse, The A-List Bar, named for Norwegian President & CEO and 30-year veteran Andy Stuart, will serve handcrafted cocktails, wines and premium spirits.Sweets and treats will be served up day and night at Coco’s, a completely new à la carte dessert venue where liquid chocolate in an enclosed oversized chocolate fountain will adorns its entranceway.
