Bliss 1/5/2020 sailing from NYC

I noticed two green (refillable) water bottles on the counter in your cabin picture -- were they a Latitudes perk, or does every guest get them?  Thanks for all of the great pictures and notes -- we'll be on Bliss in April; first time on NCL, first time on a BIG ship, first time out of NYC!

 

Hi @IRMO12HD

 

I brought my gym water bottle on board (empty).  It looks like two because it's in front of the mirror.  I'm not Latitudes but I didn't notice any NCL branded water bottles being used outside of what was being sold in the gift shop.  So I don't think that will be a perk.

Do you recommend this spot for sail away 

love your reviews!!!!

 

Oh no, I live on Staten Island about 1 mile from the base of the bridge in this photo.  I've posted photos in the past of different ships leaving NY Harbor.  It was just strange to be on the ship this time.

 

As for vantage point, I recommend getting as high as you can on the ship.  On the Bliss it was Deck 18, where the laser tag setup was.

Thanks, @PistolPete13!  I'll be bringing my own water bottle; was just curious.  We're NCL newbies, so no Latitudes status for us either.  Do they have water bottle refill stations (like in the airports), or do you have to do the 'fill a glass, then pour it in your water bottle' routine?  Sounds like it will be easy to hit my target 10,000 steps a day!

It's the fill a glass routine due to sanitary concerns.  I think all the NCL ships have the same water and ice dispenser so a water bottle lip can just about touch the water exit, not good.  I've only been on the Escape and now Bliss however.

You may be right.  I lose count once the elevator stops.  I don't remember how many levels I had to climb to reach the top.

Oh, I forgot to mention, as the cruise went on, the sleepers from the Observation Lounge started making their way to the Waterfront deck.  I'll keep my mouth shut and let others debate the merits of taking up an entire couch on a busy sea day...

I took photos of every meal I ate but I didn't think anyone here would want to see that!  LOL

 

The steak on the regular menu was decent.  I had it 2 or 3 times during the cruise.

Pete,

 

Thank you for some AWESOME photos! I leave in 2 weeks for the same trip! You gave me a great idea of what to expect. Now I'm really chomping at the bit.

Ok, last one for the day (maybe).

 

Day 6 (Ocho Rios) 1/10/2020

 

We pulled into Jamaica on a stormy morning that made for some dramatic photos.  My excursion was for Dunn river falls and a dolphin encounter.  I'll post my thoughts on both of those after I've finished processing all the photos.

I am trying not to be disgusted by the pictures of people's feet on pillows and couch cushions. Kind of skeeves me out!

Feet on the pillows should go to NCL marketing, gee ... great publicity, freestyle.  Not. 🙄 😲

Okay, the feet on pillow thing REALLY grossed me out. Who does that?!? I don't even put my feet on my throw pillows at home! Pillows are for heads! So so so gross. How do people think this is okay?
