“Ladies and gentlemen, Bliss Casino is now officially open for your gaming pleasure!”
I was overwhelmed delivering those lines during the turnover of Norwegian Bliss last April 19th from Meyer Werft in Bremerhaven, Germany. As part of the setup team, I had the privilege of seeing how the ship morphed like a canvas, from just a sketch to a glimmering casino!
Getting inside the cruise casino, you will not just be astounded by the onboard promotions such as the usual blackjack, slots, and poker tournaments, but you will also be amazed by the layout as to how each part of the place creates a one-of-a-kind setup. The first thing that one would truly notice is the gigantic chandelier that spirals downward in layers of cascading crystals.
Equipped with 310 slot machines, which include a Pusher, Key master, and 25 table games, the cruise casino is truly a structure where players are ushered into a different world with the most innovative ship across the fleet.
Just as each part of the ship was carefully crafted, Bliss Casino was custom built in order to best address convenience and provide the utmost gaming experience to all patrons. Walking into every corner, one will surely not miss the features that have made this a cruise casino of the highest caliber.
It has the latest slot machines across the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet -- these are truly going to captivate anyone who goes in for the spin. These will truly provide all slot enthusiasts an experience like no other. In addition, the tournament banks used in the slot tournaments are using state of the art technologies – elevating the heart-pounding tourney to a higher level.
The table games in the Bliss Casino include a variety of options for everyone. Although 3 Card Pokers, Ultimate Texas Holdem, Roulette, Craps, and Blackjack tables are readily available, Baccarat and Pai Gow are also arranged depending on business demands.
The most revolutionary feature of all was making the cruise casino a non –smoking area! Yes, folks, you heard right! While we continue to accommodate all preferences just to provide unmatched gaming experience on the high seas, Bliss casino is the first in the fleet to provide a purely unconventional setup. To those who prefer to smoke while playing there is a separate room provided for exactly that. This private room houses 117 slot machine options with 6 table games. All kinds of machine games found in the non-smoking casino can also be enjoyed in the private smoking area.
Kudos to the men and women behind the smashing hit opening; the gaming floor is now ready to accommodate your hopes for winning jackpots while basking in the coveted cruise destinations Norwegian Bliss has in store.
As the ship began its Transatlantic and Panama Canal voyages to begin the U.S. inaugural tour, it was captivating to witness her beauty. Book your cruise with Casinos At Sea and see for yourself how amazing the Norwegian Bliss Casino truly is.
