At approximately 167,800 gross tons and accommodating 4,000 guests, Norwegian Bliss is being constructed at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, and is scheduled for delivery in spring 2018.

The third ship in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class, Norwegian Bliss’s hull art work has been designed by premier marine life artist Wyland and features images of humpback whales, found in every ocean around the world, which will serve as large canvas to showcase the importance of conservation and ocean preservation.

During her inaugural summer season, Norwegian Bliss will sail weekly seven-night Alaska cruises each Saturday from Seattle, providing all of the innovative features, entertainment, signature dining and on board experiences. The ship’s itinerary will feature calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia, along with scenic glacier cruising.

The same features that make Norwegian Bliss the ideal ship for the ultimate Alaska experience will also allow guests to experience the Caribbean like never before.

The crown jewel of these features is the 180 degree Observation Lounge, located at the front of the ship on deck 15. Spanning 20,000 sq-ft, the sprawling Observation Lounge will be a breath-taking experience, offering floor-to-ceiling windows that will be the perfect spot from which to take in the stunning sunset views of the beautiful islands of the Caribbean during her winter season or the awe-inspiring glaciers and vistas of Alaska in the summer.

The lounge, designed with rich woods and a silver and grey colour palate, will offer an abundance of plush, modern seating including couches and chaise lounges to take in the view, along with a 360 degree polished aluminium and quartz-topped central bar where guests can enjoy fine cocktails and spirits.

In the spirit of Norwegian’s long history of innovation, Norwegian Bliss will have accommodations for solo travellers, family-friendly connecting staterooms, ultra-chic suites and more.

Norwegian’s signature ship-within-a-ship concept, The Haven by Norwegian®, will once again adorn the top of the ship with 80 ultra-luxurious suites. The exclusive key-card access three-story enclave on decks 17 -19 will be a secluded paradise with a private restaurant, courtyard area with retractable roof and sunbathing deck.

All suites in the Haven will enjoy the services of a butler and a private concierge, as well as priority access to reservations, VIP embarkation and disembarkation, exclusive reserved seating in the ship’s theatre and much more.

Norwegian Bliss will also feature new connecting stateroom options across stateroom categories - ideal for large groups and families travelling together who want to enjoy quality time together at sea. The ship’s 308 mini-suites are designed for guests looking to enjoy a little more of a spacious experience at sea featuring larger bathrooms than a standard balcony stateroom with some offering bathtubs, and a balcony.
