Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that its upcoming cruise ship, Norwegian Bliss, will home-port in Miami during the winter 2018 season.
Norwegian Bliss will make her debut season in Alaska, where she will offer seven-night cruises from Seattle in the summer months.
After completing its season in Alaska, Norwegian Bliss will sail on a five-night cruise from Vancouver to Los Angeles on September 30, with an overnight stay in Vancouver and calls in Victoria, British Columbia and San Francisco. Norwegian Bliss will also offer several seven- and eight-night Mexican Riviera cruises from Los Angeles. The ship will then depart on a 14-night cruise from Los Angeles to Miami on November 3, which will include a passage through the newly-expanded Panama Canal.
Norwegian Bliss will arrive in Miami on November 17, 2018, where it will offer seven-night sailings to the Caribbean, visiting St. Thomas, Tortola, and Nassau.
“We are incredibly excited to announce that we are once again bringing our newest and most innovative ship to Miami, with the arrival of Norwegian Bliss in November 2018,” said Andy Stuart, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “As the Caribbean is our most sought-after winter destination, there was no question that Norwegian Bliss would sail from Miami. This incredibly dynamic ship will offer stunning ocean views from almost every venue, spacious and thoughtfully designed accommodations that fit with every cruiser’s needs, and a variety of exciting and engaging venues that will continue Norwegian’s history of innovation in providing the ultimate dining and entertainment experiences at sea.”
Spanning 20,000 square feet, the Observation Lounge on Deck 15, will be a popular place for wildlife spotting in Alaska, and the perfect place to watch sunsets in the Caribbean. Those staying in the exclusive Haven complex will have access to a private two-deck-high observation lounge, restaurant, terrace area, pool and spa.
Solo guests have always been looked after on Norwegian’s Breakaway- and Breakaway Plus-class ships. On Norwegian Bliss, the 82 studio cabins will feature virtual windows, in addition to a private lounge.
