The newest addition to Norwegian Cruise Line is still under construction but NCL have opened up to give the public an insight to what facilities will be available on-board this amazing vessel.

Due to make her debut in April 2018, the Norwegian Bliss stated by CEO Andy Stuart will be ‘Norwegians cruise lines most incredible ship to date’.

The Norwegian Bliss will feature several attractions that are based on the lines China based Norwegian Joy, one of the   major vocal points being the two level race car track. The track on the Norwegian Bliss will be nearly 1000 feet longer than the Norwegian Joy offering four different speed settings based on the drivers skills form Novice to advance drivers reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Not to disturb the passengers the cars completely run in silence , this will not stop the drivers getting the full racecourse experience as the sound of engines etcetera are fed through speakers situated in the drivers headrests .

Another added feature taken from the Norwegian Joy for those passengers who like the High tech experience will be an open aired laser tag course which will be open day and night.

1860_aquapark_slide-2

Scaling the size of the ship, passengers will be able to enjoy two swimming pools and six hot tubs. Besides the pool area passengers will be able to enjoy the ships Aqua park which will feature two multi-story waterslides. Those who class themselves as frill seekers will be able to try the high speed Ocean Loops free fall slide which has two heart stooping loops, one that protrudes over the side of the ship and the second one being a see through loop that extends to the deck below. If that’s not enough you have the chance to go on the tandem Aqua Racer slide giving people the opportunity to race side by side for more than 360 feet.

Oh and of course let’s not forget about the kids who will have hours of fun with the splash pads, water cannons, tipping buckets as well as junior sized slides.

 

Norwegian Cruise Lines are known for their child friendly ships and the Norwegian Bliss will be no different. Offering a Splash Academy which will be located on deck 5 offering supervised activities for children ranging from age 3 to 12 years of age. For the teenagers 13 to 17 years of age they will have their own space located next to the ships arcade, with comfy furniture they will be able to enjoy gaming stations including Foosball, air hockey and even a dance floor with neon lighting.

NCL inclusions

 

Where can you visit with Norwegian Cruise Line?

The answer to that is quite simple…. Worldwide! NCL have one of the most modern and innovative fleet of ships at sea covering virtually the globe! From the Norwegian Bliss ( Brand new for 2018! ) in Alaska to the Pride of America sailing around the Hawaiian Islands to the Norwegian Jade sailing from Southampton next summer.

In our brand new May brochure we have a selection of great worldwide offers with NCL!

If you are looking for an all inclusive Winter break look no further than the Norwegian Spirit taking in the Canary Islands from Barcelona. This cruise is always one of our best sellers!

In summer 2018 the Norwegian Jade will be based out of Southampton! She will be operating Northern European itineraries throughout the season. Great news for those who prefer to sail from the UK and avoid flying. If you would rather fly we have the Norwegian Breakway from Copenhagen on a Baltic Capitals cruise. This itinerary has an overnight in St. Petersburg to give you plenty of time to explore the Winter and Summer Palaces or even take in the Ballet.

Winter Palace Square - St. Petersburg

If you are looking for a break later this summer, we have offers for the Norwegian Epic in the Western Mediterranean and the Norwegian Star in the Eastern Mediterranean. From lazy sunny days to sightseeing, these itineraries have everything you could need to make the most of the last part of summer.

For something a little different take a look at our Panama Canal and South America offers. The Norwegian Star has a fantastic full Panama Canal transit to give you the full experience of sailing from one end of the canal, through Gatun Lake, to the other.

If South America is on your bucket list as well as the Panama Canal, why not try The Norwegian Sun sailing from Santiago in February 2018. This itinerary not only includes Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Chile but also features a full Panama Canal transit! What a great itinerary to combine all these destinations!

Disney Cruise Lines introduced lifeguards onboard their ships in 2013. Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines followed suit and by June this year (2017) all their ships will have lifeguards

Now Norwegian Cruise Lines have just announced by mid 2018 all their ships will add a lifeguard service.

shutterstock_595217096

Brilliant news for parents with children or for those adults who aren’t water savvy!

Since 2015 Norwegian Cruise Lines had crew members acting as pool monitors, however they aren’t trained lifesavers. The new lifeguards will be fully trained and certified by the American Red Cross.

Family pools will be monitored during scheduled pool hours

This summer Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Epic will start this service onboard

Free swim vests for adults and children will also be available. These can be collected from the towel station onboard.

For those who haven’t sailed with Norwegian Cruise Lines, their Aqua Parks are brilliant fun for all the family, especially kids! From the tropical-themed pool on Norwegian Epic to Spongebob Square Pants & Friends themed splash area. If slides are your kind of thing then you’ve hit the jackpot with Norwegian. Take a free fall and drop at the speed of 4Gs or race side by side on The Whip.

Besides the all-inclusive drinks package the gratuities will also be included in the final price which means no hidden costs awaiting  when you disembark.

The amazing thing with NCL’s new promotion is that it doesn’t just cover the first two passengers, the 3rd and 4th passengers also receive the Premium drinks package or soft drinks and Juice package depending on their age.

The All-inclusive package will cover all bars, lounges and restaurants on-board NCL’s 14 ships, including bottled and draft beer, spirits, wine and cocktails as well as soft drinks and juices.

On top of the Wifi and on board spends the Haven suite guests will get to enjoy Gourmet dining valid in the following speciality restaurants:-

Cagney’s steakhouse, Teppanyaki, Le Bistro, La Cucina, Margariaville and Moderno Churrascaria.

On a personal level and being in the travel industry for over 20 years, could this be the way forward?

If we sit down and work out how much we would need to budget for drinks, gratuities etcetera it would be far more than the price difference compared to what NCL are offering.

With the drinks package being a Premium package I’ve highlighted some examples of the Brands on offer plus many more I’ve not listed:

Beers & Ciders :-

Grolsch, Becks , Peroni, Coors Light, Red Stripe, San Miguel and Strongbow
