Alaskan Bliss – Brought to you by NCL

Alaskan Bliss – Brought to you by NCL

Norwegian Cruise Lines have released some exciting news about one of their brand new Breakaway Plus class ships, Norwegian Bliss.

This will be their first ship specifically designed to cruise Alaska and will set sail in June 2018. The ship will have custom built features and amenities to enhance cruising in this region.

As yet, dining, accommodation and on board facilities are to be announced over the forthcoming months but this is a real innovation from NCL and is sure to prove very popular. Bliss will be the youngest ship to sail in Alaska and this is bound to be a great pull for those wanting to experience Alaska on a state of the art new ship.

The hull art of the ship, which is synonymous to Norwegian Cruise Line, is to be revealed later this month and is to be designed by Marine Life artist, Wyland. This sounds very fitting for Bliss and I can’t wait to see the design!

Prior to her Alaskan season she will be doing a transatlantic cruise and a Panama Canal cruise before sailing to her homeport of Seattle. This gives plenty of opportunity for those wanting to be one of the first to sail on her but have maybe already sailed Alaska. After which Norwegian Bliss will relocate to Miami for winter 2018/19

The Bliss will be a fantastic addition to Alaskan offerings and I for one can’t wait to find out more! Here’s a sneak peak at her interior:

The Haven Observation Lounge


Built for the spectacular vistas of Alaska and The Caribbean, Norwegian Bliss will offer guests staying in The Haven exclusive access to a 2-story observation lounge with expansive, panoramic ocean views.

The Observation Lounge


Imagine sheer amazement from our revolutionary observation lounge offering the most expansive views at sea. The Observation Lounge is located at the front of the ship and provides the same stunning views as the views from the bridge and features a full service bar for guests to sit back, relax and take in the views.
