This month marks the completion of five years of service for the Norwegian Bliss.
Norwegian Cruise Line delivered its third Breakaway-Plus ship, a 164,600-ton vessel, in April 2018.
After being built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, the Bliss first sailed to Southampton before crossing the Atlantic to New York.
After being presented to U.S. media and VIPs at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal, the 4,200-guest vessel headed for Miami, Los Angeles, and Seattle – where it will be based during its maiden season.
At its debut, the Bliss became the largest ship ever to cross the Panama Canal, custom-designed for Alaska.
During a special ceremony in Seattle, Elvis Duran christened the Norwegian Bliss before it welcomed it is first paying guests.
A seven-night Alaska cruise was first offered by the vessel in early June. In addition to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria, the program provided a roundtrip from the Washington homeport.
In addition to an enhanced Observation Lounge, an open-air laser tag circuit, and a two-deck go-kart raceway, the ship was designed with improved features and experiences.
There is also a wide selection of specialty dining venues on the Norwegian Bliss, including a new concept for Norwegian, the Q Texas Smokehouse.
The BBQ house is one of the most prominent onboard restaurants featuring live country music and a themed menu.
Bliss is adorned with hull art like the rest of Norwegian’s fleet. The paintwork created by Robert Wyland represents marine conservation.
