Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that their upcoming purpose-built Alaska ship Norwegian Bliss will be spending the winter in a place a bit warmer.
After her inaugural summer season in Alaska, the vessel will set sail for Miami to seasonally homeport in Miami for winter 2018. Beginning on November 17, 2018, Bliss will operate seven-day eastern Caribbean cruises each Saturday. The voyage will call in St. Thomas, Tortola, and Nassau.
Norwegian Bliss‘ custom design will give guests the freedom to create their ideal cruising experience, with a wide variety of accommodations including The Haven suites, studio rooms for solo travelers with virtual ocean views, and new connecting rooms for big groups or families. The ship will also feature two observation lounges, including one exclusively for The Haven guests, perfect for whale watching in Alaska, or taking in Caribbean sunsets.
After completing her Alaska inaugural season, en route to Miami the ship will sail one 5-day Pacific Coastal cruise from Vancouver to Los Angeles on September 30, calling in Victoria and San Francisco. Norwegian Bliss‘ 7-day Mexican Riviera cruises will call in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán, and Cabo San Lucas, adding Ensenada on its 8-day itinerary. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the ship will depart Los Angeles on November 3 for a 14-day journey to Miami through the new locks of the recently expanded Panama Canal, with calls in Puerto Vallarta; Manzanillo; Quetzal, Guatemala; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; and Cartagena, Colombia.
