NCL Peace of Mind Policy - Sail Safe

Norwegian Cruise Line have implemented the following health and safety measures to protect their guests and crew members both onboard and ashore during their cruise.

Before stepping onboard, all guests and crew will undergo health screening, as well as temperature monitoring throughout the cruise, to identify and prevent the spread of health issues. Check-in will be done online and embarkation will take place in a staggered manner to ensure social distancing can be maintained.

Once on the ship, measures include state-of-the-art air filtration to ensure that the air onboard is clean, increased cleaning measures including more frequent sanitation of staterooms, suites and public spaces, full-service buffets with staff serving guests and increased social distancing throughout the ship and during activities. What's more, ships will only visit safe ports, meaning that itineraries may be changed.

In the event of illness onboard, NCL have enhanced medical resources onboard. These include diagnostic testing for COVID-19, medical oxygen, medication and vaccinations, as well as ongoing health and safety training for crew and isolation accommodation if needed.

Customer reviews for Norwegian Bliss

We had a week on this fantastic ship for an Alaskan cruise after 3 days in Seattle. It was our 9th NCL cruise but 1st time on the Bliss & it was by far the best in every way. Alaska is truly beautiful, it’s just sad to see the rate at which the glaciers are decreasing. The service on the Bliss was exemplary, even by NCL’s usual high standards. The staff went above & beyond what I’d expect of them, we wanted for nothing.

Really great for solo travelers

Fabulous ship, brilliant staff and crew. Stayed in a studio stateroom, plenty of room for a single traveller, and the ‘virtual window’ means the stateroom does not feel claustrophobic. The studio lounge is great, primarily for those in the studio staterooms providing a great space to meet and enjoy hot and cold drinks, along with snacks. The provision of activities and meetings specifically for Solo travellers was great, so that those who travelled alone could have the company of other solo travellers if they wished. New friendships have been established, and a brilliant time had by all in our solo group. I would throughly recommend the Norwegian Bliss, and can’t wait for my next cruise
