Norwegian Cruise Line has launched its new Norwegian Bliss in Germany, ahead of sailings to Alaska, the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
“Norwegian Bliss is one of our most highly-anticipated ships to date,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line, at the launch.
“The Meyer Werft team, along with our operations teams, ship officers and crew members, has done an incredible job bringing Norwegian Bliss to life and we cannot wait for guests to experience all she has to offer.”
Firsts at sea
Norwegian Bliss is the third ship in the line’s Breakaway Plus class, and reportedly the first cruise ship specifically designed with features and amenities for the ‘ultimate Alaska cruising experience’.
On board, guests will be able to experience some new first-at-sea offerings, including a competitive driving race track, an open-air laser tag course, and an Aqua Racer waterslide at the onboard aqua park.
Tasty treats and theatre highlights
Aboard Norwegian Bliss, culinary enthusiasts can savour new specialty dining and bar concepts such as the debuting Texas Smokehouse – Q; the cruise line’s first full-service Starbucks Café at sea; and Coco’s, a chocolate and sweet treats shop.
At the District Brew House, guests can enjoy a variety of craft cocktails and beers, including local Seattle favourites from Red Hook Brewery.
With regards to entertainment, Norwegian Bliss features a programme that includes Broadway musical, Jersey Boys, and ¡Havana! – an original musical theatre show created and produced specifically for this ship.
Norwegian Bliss also features a new theatrical cocktail hour experience, Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical that will ‘transport guests to a New Orleans speakeasy on the eve of the Prohibition era’.
Beginning June 2018, Norwegian Bliss will spend her summer cruising seven-day voyages to Alaska, and autumn season cruising to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles.
In winter of 2018, she will sail the Caribbean from Miami, and in the 2019 fall/winter season she will cruise from New York City to Florida, the Bahamas and Caribbean.
