*This post is in collaboration with Norwegian Cruise Lines. I 'm receivng a comped cruise for I and a guest, in exchange for blog and social media content. All opinions are my own.

Ahoy Mates! The press trip cruise, I've been talking about is coming up shortly! Before I set sail, I wanted to share some unique and exciting features of Norwegian's newest luxury liner. The ship is the newest member of liner's "Breakaway Plus' Class vessels. This amazing city at sea was custom built, to give you the ultimate cruising experience.  

The Bliss will keep cruisers intrigued for days, as it boasts an array of exciting experiences. Included are endless options for eats, acitivities, world class accommodations and show stopping entertainment. After the inaugural cruise, she will be cruising the breathtaking waters of Alaska. Then later in November, the ship will trade in voyages on northern waters for the sunsets of the Caribbean.

Imagine Spectacular Experiences aboard the Norwegian Bliss

On board the Bliss, guests will experience "incredible firsts", and embark on a vacation like never before. I'm over the moon excited to jump on board, I can hardly wait! After the cruise I will be posting a full guide to cruising on the Bliss. Until then I am sharing a sneak peak:

Can you believe the food extravaganza, oh my goodness?!  I 'm already scheming how I can a sample a bite of all of it.  This is quite the city riding high on the sea.  It's a little bit of heaven on earth for sure! I'm  looking forward to sharing my experience on the Bliss with all of you.

I'll be sharing live coverage from the ship on instagram and facebook . (Hopefully the internet on open waters will cooperate.) Just maybe... you will catch me chilling out on these spa chairs!

I hope you'll follow along, and be inspired to book a Norwegian cruise soon!  

Save it on Pinterest for later:

    Wonderful pictures and post
    Thanks for sharing

    1. I am so glad it was helpful, and I hope you have an amazing time on your cruise!

  3. Always amazed by how much they manage to fit on one boat! It’s like an entire city. I’m going on my first cruise in November - a Disney Cruise, a lot less offerings but interested to see the differences

    1. I know right!? HOw fun..a disney cruise sounds amazing, have a great time Jasmine!

  4. A Norwegian cruise would be amazing!!

    1. MY first one, I went on Carnival before, so excited to check it out!

  5. Oh my goodness, is it for real?I completely love their interiors, the pink shop for food extravaganza and the rooms look like from 5 star facility with an amazing view.

    1. Ha ha I thought the same all looks too good to be true, and I cant wait to check out that pink gelato shop!

  6. This cruise sounds amazing! Hard to believe a cruise ship could be so beautiful as well! Maybe I can finally convince my husband to go on one :)

    1. Hi Clair, start talking ..ha ha maybe he will take you on this amazing ship! I hope you get a cruise soon!

  7. Wow that ship is something else!! We took a Norwegian through Alaska and Glacier bay and it was the best cruise we have done so far! Love NCL

    1. Wow cool Cathy, I cruised Carnival to Alaska, that ship was nice but this one is going to be epic, I cant wait!

  8. WOW!!!! I have always wanted to do a cruise. My daughter wants to do one to Bora Boar but this look incredible! Largest Go Cart Track at Sea is insane! The cruise liners really know how to epitomize luxury!

    1. They sure do..! The cities at sea are so amazing...Bora Bora- ID love to go there, I hope you get to go soon!

  9. Looks amazing. I've only been on cruise ship for a day tour but never on a real cruise so I'm looking forward to the day I can sip pinacolada with the endless sea that surrounds me. The interior is gorgeous and the endless entertainment will keep the boredom away.

    1. I hope can go on one soon! I did a day tour of Holland that was fun, and Ive been on one other with Carnival..such a blast!

  10. I'm not a big cruise person, but I think that's only because I've never been on THIS ship! My kids could live there - amazingly fun activities and great food...okay, maybe I could live on there too!

    1. I 've only been on one, it was so fun, but this one will be even better. It's great if you can go with a big group..its such a blast!

  11. That is one swank ship! And it has Mandara spa on it! Great spa!
