Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and largest cruise ship, Norwegian Bliss, will complete her inaugural season in Alaska this week before heading to Miami for cruises to the Caribbean.
Before arriving in PortMiami for the winter Caribbean season, Norwegian Bliss will sail a series of cruises to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles.
As the largest and one of the newest cruise ships to cruise from the Port of Los Angeles, Norwegian Bliss will offer seven-day cruises to the Mexican Riviera with calls to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, from October 5 – 27, 2018.
After leaving Los Angeles, Norwegian Bliss will begin sailing from Miami to the Caribbean on November 17. The cruise ship will sail seven night cruises to the Eastern Caribbean with port stops in Nassau, St. Thomas, and Tortola.
Following the most successful curise ship launch in the cruise line’s history, Norwegian Bliss was christened in Seattle on May 30. On June 2, she commenced her first summer season of seven-day Alaska cruises welcoming nearly 77,000 guests over 17 voyages calling to Ketchikan, Skagway and Juneau in Alaska as well as to Victoria, British Colombia.
The cruise ship will returen to Seattle on May 5, 2019 for her second Alaska season. At that time, she will be joined by Norwegian Joy sailing from Seattle and Norwegian Jewel cruising from Vancouver, and Seward, Alaska.
Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, gave the following statement: “Norwegian Bliss was one of the most highly anticipated ships in the company’s history and was well received by our loyal guests and travel partners.
Her success surpassed anything we could have imagined, and as a result, we are very enthusiastic about our decision to introduce her sister ship, Norwegian Joy, to the U.S. market in April 2019, when she joins Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Jewel in Alaska.”
