can I use my $250 on board credit to pay for spa or shopping on board?

Asked by: hathai
It will automatically be credited against anything and everything you purchase on-board. It will come off your balance due at the end of the cruise.

Is the spa daily pass worth it. What do you get on the Bliss ship.

Asked by: Juda
You can have a tour of the spa on embarkation days so you can decide if you want to buy one or not. The value of it will depend on your own personal preference. If your ship is crowded it may be worth it as a getaway as the pool and hot tub will be much less busy in the spa than on the decks.

How many life boats are on the Norwegian Bliss?

Asked by: Tilesha
Interesting question! This is what I recall. There are 16 rigid boats, each holding 314 passengers so more than enough for ship passengers. There are also quite a few inflatable rafts, intended mainly for crew (as they tell you during safety video) but also can carry ship passengers. This is not the Titanic, there are lifeboats enough for all!!

Is there a indoor smoking lounge and where are the outdoor smoking areas?

Asked by: ScorpioNY
Yes, there's an indoor area by Maltings bar called The Humidor. It's geared more towards cigar smoking but I've seen plenty of cigarette smokers use the area with no complaints from staff although NCL guidelines say it's a no-no. I'd check with the staff first because some staffers might object. There is a dedicated smoking room in the casino, however. Outdoor smoking is permitted at Spice H2O, starboard side.

Asked by: MMERINGA
Older questions, but as we just cruised on the Bliss I'll answer. We took a behind-the-scenes tour which included the theater, and this question came up (how often do you rotate shows). They say shows run for quite a while. It's interesting that they do have to customize the shows a bit to fit in time windows, and due to limitations of staging, but contractually they are limited to how much they can change the show. It would be expensive to adapt shows frequently, so they run them for a few years.

do you have to dress up at any of the dining rooms at any time?

Just looking to see if we HAVE to wear formal clothes for the main dining room like some ships require.
Asked by: Bobscruise
On NCL you never HAVE to dress any way you don't want to. See this link for information on suggested dress for different restaurants -!#what-clothes-should-i-pack.

Are robes included with a balcony room?

To use when going to the hot tub in a bathing suit.
Asked by: Meitl
No, they aren't. Possibly with a suite or Haven cabin, but not with a regular balcony cabin. Pool side towels look different than cabin towels, suppose you could use one of those. Especially if they aren't tracking pool towels with your room number. Meaning if a pool towel gets left in your cabin, it would find it's way back poolside after laundry.

Is there any formal dress up night on the Bliss for Jan 7th 2023 sailing through the panama Canel?

Asked by: Dakotamama65
NCL does not have formal nights. Their "freestyle" policy says wear what you're comfortable wearing. They do have the occasional "Dress up or not" nights, but you should never feel over- or under-dressed. There will always be plenty of people dressed the same as you.

Room by the Elevator

Are rooms near the elevator noisier than rooms not by the elevator?
Asked by: MNLisa
It really depends. If you are directly across from an elevator lobby and not up or down the hall it can be. The noise is not necessarily the elevators but the people who tend to congregate near them. Mid ship elevators will always be the busiest places and command the most noise, port days will also yield a high volume of traffic as well upon the end of the day since this is were people get shuffled to upon clearing vessel security upon their return. Aft and forward elevators will be busier at certain times of day (forward before and after shows in the main theater), aft will be busier at dining times for some of the main dining rooms especially on the smaller ships (Gem, Dawn, Jade, Jewel, Pearl, Sky, Spirit, Star & Sun).

Is there laundry machines on the ship

Asked by: Licia
There are no self-service laundry facilities on any NCL Ship. You can send items to the ship's laundry for a fee, similar to a dry cleaner's. They usually run a special mid-cruise. Check with your cabin attendant.

Does the Bliss have a solarium

Asked by: patlazrn
Not really. Let me clarify that: there IS a pool/solarium on NCL ships but it's for the use of the Haven guests only. So if you're in the Haven, you're in luck. Otherwise, the closest you'll come is the small thalassotherapy pool and large forward facing windows in the spa. Or there's the outdoor pool but I can't imagine using that pool on an Alaskan cruise even in mid-season (although some do). The spa, btw, is absolutely heavenly on an Alaskan cruise, especially at the very start or end of the season :)

Can you upgrade room?

Asked by: Littlewatts
They will always let you spend more money, so this is not a problem. Just call your TA or NCL Cruise Consultant. They'll re-book you at the current price. If you want to try to do it for a little less money, NCL has a system where you can bid on upgrades. It usually starts 3-4 months prior to departure. You ca bid on upgraded staterooms for less than it would otherwise cost. Of course, you risk being outbid by others. Check your email for the opportunity.

How is internet use time calculated on limited packages?

Is there an app that records usage hours on guest device? Is there a way to monitor my own use so I know how much time remains? When does use start and end of you are browsing the web?
Asked by: Yield9
Time is tracked by the minute, and any part of a minute counts as a full minute - 1 minute 10 seconds counts as 2 minutes. The app keeps track and reminds you as you log on/off.

On the Bliss reposition cruise 5 nights LA to Vancouver with 1 port day-3 sea days are any of the specialty restaurants open for lunch?

Asked by: lvamy
Answering after this has passed, but may be useful for future cruises as I think they have the same approach for most. On sea days, the only specialty restaurant open for lunch was "American Diner." The main dining rooms open were Savor and Taste and they had long lines. The buffet was busy as always, but there was seating in the very front of the room, and on the pool deck (though it was quite cold). On port days, generally only the buffet is open for lunch.

There are almost always two shows of a given program, 7:30 and 9:30 or thereabouts. Some shows also appear on two nights so you have some flexibility. It really depends on the program.

Texting on and off the ship

We are a family of seven. If we need to text each other to find out where they are on the ship; does this use up the minutes? Any suggestions on how to communicate onboard ship would be helpful. Thanks.
Asked by: VeraZ
This is practical only if you have unlimited WiFi and use MMS over your message app. The Norwegian app used to have a feature where for $10 for the length of the cruise you could send messages through it. We last used that fall 2021, I didn't check on our most recent cruise.
