We recently got to try out Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Bliss. But I also found out how family-friendly Norwegian Bliss is. This mega-ship is packed with exciting family activities. Thus ensuring, your family cruise has the perfect balance of family and chill time.
NCL Bliss For Families, What’s Included In The Cruise Fare?
Along With A Few Norwegian Bliss Pictures To Give You A Feel Of This Stunning Ship.
You can spend as much or as little as you want to on NCL with the Premium All-Inclusive package. All-inclusive cruising gives you the peace of mind that meals, gratuities, 100 minutes of Wi-Fi and meals in certain restaurants are included in the price of your cruise fare. (There is a surcharge for certain speciality restaurants and activities)
This means the kids can eat free cake and ice cream from the buffet restaurant to their heart’s content. Thus, keeping kids hydrated is not a problem with free-flowing drinks on those hot, sunny Caribbean days at sea. And for the parents? Also, all alcoholic drinks up to $15 are included, as are specialty coffees in the restaurants.
Dining, Which Restaurants Are Included In The Cost Of My Cruise?
For complimentary dining check out Savour and Taste these are main dining rooms, which offer slightly different menus but with an à la carte feel you would expect on a cruise ship.
The Manhattan Room is also complimentary. It is a large, elegant dining room serving a range of dishes, which vary from night to night.
The Garden Café buffet offers a vast selection of worldwide cuisine to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters and is an excellent option for a more relaxed dinner. Perfect for those evenings when you just want to chill or when teens have an action-packed itinerary planned and don’t have time for formal dining. Try out the Asian section omg……
The Local is a 24-hour causal restaurant, which features comfort foods and cold beer on tap a great chilled out place to grab a quick dinner without the hustle and bustle.
The Entourage Teen Club.
There are many kid’s club options and a full itinerary, which you find in your cruise ship news that lands in your cabin every evening. I have also included photos of the Norwegian Bliss kids clubs.
Entourage is a place where teens can hang out and meet new friends. Ages 13-17 are welcome to join Entourage, which offers a cool, laid-back environment with gaming, and chill-out areas. This is the perfect environment for teens to meet new friends and enjoy an area of their very own that feels a little more grown-up.

Activities On Norwegian Bliss For Teens,
And for a little fun family time head to the Racing Track on the Norwegian Bliss. Apart from all the exciting itineraries the reason Norwegian Bliss is so Family Friendly is the deck activities. With a racetrack at sea for nominal charge budding race drivers over 1.2 meters can burn rubber on deck. Take part in tournaments and meet new friends. The racetrack is electric thus meaning there is no noise to disturb other guests. Check out my Norwegian Bliss pictures of the race track.
What Does the Norwegian Bliss Racing Track Cost?
You need to book at a cost of $15 per go, but you get quite a few laps, which made it well worth the cost.
Or Check Out The Norwegian Bliss Laser Tag On Deck 20!
The Laser Tag area on the Norwegian Bliss is themed as an abandoned space station. The course comes to life day and night as guests compete against family and friends with state-of-the art laser guns. Also the course theming is incredible, featuring encapsulated aliens and hidden corners making the experience fun but eerie and energetic at the same time. This is the perfect place to burn off extra energy.
What Does The Norwegian Bliss Laser Tag Cost?
Again, this is a bookable activity with a price tag of $9.95 per person.
There Are Giant Water Slides On The Norwegian Bliss
That’s what makes Norwegian Bliss family-friendly: it caters to all ages. Alongside the water park for younger children, there are also water slides of extraordinary proportions for thrill-seeking teens.
The Aqua Park on NLC Bliss features two water slides, including the high-speed Ocean Loops, a double-loop water slide that extends over the side of the ship. And the tandem Aqua Racer, here guests can race side-by-side on inner tubes. And for a bit of chill time in the sun.
The Aqua Park features two swimming pools and six infinity hot tubs on the deck above it that scale over the side of the ship offering breath-taking views.
There Are Cabins Big Enough For Families Of 5 On Norwegian Bliss
Yes, I stayed in a junior suite that was more than big enough to accommodate a family of 4, there are also family suites available for families of 5 and Haven Suites to accommodate families of six. Of course, you can also book interconnecting staterooms to give you that extra bit of space. This is such great news, as it means larger families can cruise!
In addition to keeping your cabin tidy, your cabin steward is on hand to convert your cabin. So you go from having a lounge area to extra beds at night. Making living in a cruise cabin easy and comfortable. It is like having two rooms in one but without the effort.
Whether You Are Cruising To Alaska Or Cruising To The Caribbean Bliss Has It All.
Family cruising just got a whole lot more fun, with Norwegian Bliss offering a full schedule of family friendly activities, fantastic food and exciting itineraries. I honestly can’t think of a better family cruise ship to see the world on.
