Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest cruise ship, Norwegian Bliss, offers many incredible features for guests to enjoy. Building on other successful ships in the Breakaway Plus class, Norwegian Bliss takes the onboard experience to a new level while she cruises the summer in Alaska, Mexican Riviera in the Spring and Fall and Bahamas and Caribbean in the Winter.
Here’s our picks for the Top 10 Features onboard Norwegian Bliss.
If you feel the need for speed while on your cruise vacation, the two-level race tack (exclusive to Norwegian Cruise Line) offers the exhilaration of hairpin turns as you challenge family and friend to a race. One eight-minute lap around the track will cost $9.95 per person. Guests can also purchase an unlimited daily pass for $29.95 per person or a weekly pass for $99.95.
Outdoor Laser Tag
Another first-at-sea is the open-air laser tag arena where you’ll battle onboard an abandoned space station. Make your way through the various corridors and while you’re playing have a look around some really cool stuff, like a preserved frozen alien and cryogenic chambers. Cost for a 30-minute session is $9.95 per person.
Imagine sailing through Alaska taking in the beautiful panoramas from the climate-controlled comfort of this incredible Observation Lounge. Located forward on Deck 15, this lounge offers the same views as the ship’s bridge and is the place to be when entering a new port of call.
Ready for an adrenaline rush, the AquaPark offers two great slides guaranteed to thrill. The Aqua Racer, takes guests on a swirling ride down a slide with a clear section and colorful patterns and features tubes for single or double riders. Ocean Loops will drop you down fast and over the side of the ship as you pass through clear sections of the slide while enjoying the two awesome loops.
