Norwegian Cruise Line Returns to the West Coast
The Norwegian Bliss began sailing from Los Angeles this past Sunday.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL),l continues its Great Cruise Comeback with the restart of its seventh vessel, Norwegian Bliss, sailing week-long voyages to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles.
Norwegian Bliss, one of the most successful ships ever launched in the company's 54-year history will be the Brand's second vessel sailing from the West Coast following the celebrated restart of her sister ship Norwegian Encore, which resumed voyages to Alaska from Seattle in August 2021.
On Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021 Norwegian Bliss' crew members welcomed eager and excited guests as they embarked to sail the majestic Mexican Riviera while looking forward to enjoying unforgettable onboard experiences including world-class fare across its 19 dining options, 20 bars and lounges, a two-level racetrack with the Bliss Speedway and Broadway-caliber entertainment including "Six: The Musical," which premiered onboard Norwegian Breakaway before hitting the stage on Broadway in March 2020.
“Norwegian Bliss has been one of the industry’s game changers setting multiple world records on the West Coast, including being the largest ship to be christened in Seattle, homeport in Los Angeles, call to San Francisco, and traverse the new locks of the Panama Canal from both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Having her make her long-awaited return from the ‘City of Angels’ sets another landmark in our Great Cruise Comeback journey as we reignite half of our fleet and continue delivering unforgettable guest experiences from one of the premier destinations on the West Coast.”
Norwegian Bliss will sail from the Los Angeles World Cruise Center, offering week-long voyages and five-day sailings to the Mexican Riviera, visiting marquee Mexican ports including Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán, and Ensenada, Mexico. On Jan. 21, 2022 she will embark on a 14-day journey crossing the Panama Canal and making port calls to notable destinations including Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera), Costa Rica; and Cartagena, Colombia before making her way to the cruise capital of the world, Miami.
