I love food. Luckily, on a cruise ship, there are many different types of food for me to try!
For the Norwegian Bliss, I did go to a few specialty restaurants. Now, let’s begin our foodie journey…..
The restaurant was so loud with the chef’s singing and banging music with the cooking utensils. He was very friendly, but the lady at the front wasn’t. She didn’t smile and sounded annoyed. The food was like normal teppanyaki and the performance was lacking the exciting “fire” show that I had seen before on land. My favourite was the fried rice and the chef’s silly jokes.
The service here was generally courteous. The crab cakes were a tad salty, but look at the portion of thick bacon! My “turf” was fine at medium rare, but my “surf” was not very flavourful nor juicy. I enjoyed my salad, but my friend pointed out that the serving of the lettuce was incorrect. Hence, the salad dressing was not evenly distributed. I was looking forward to the cheesecake, but it seemed like it was in the fridge too long…. The Apple crumble was much better.
I missed Asian food. So, did my travel companions…. We just had to visit this fusion restaurant for fun! Basically, you ordered on an IPad and they sent out the order by a server. My favourite was the Crispy Salmon Roll, which had cream cheese with salmon and rolled in panko bread crumbs. The Green Tea Mochi was obviously frozen for awhile and wasn’t even defrosted, so the Mochi was crumbling and not chewy. Service was pretty decent, but a bit pricey.
The instant they put those tiny scallops in front of me, the whole table just stared…. Therefore, I asked to exchanged for the escargots instead. Much better…. Everything else was pretty good. The chocolate fondue was my favourite!

Did you see the size of the scallops? Yes, that’s what I expected…. The Caesar Salad was made quite uniformly throughout the ship, so I was happy about that.
Besides the funny mishap of the server pouring a cup of coffee for my child, the service was overall pretty good. Also, we enjoyed the majority of the food and I would to go there for dinner time again.
For breakfast, we liked going to the buffet. Other guests were also taking photos of the fruit carvings at the Garden Buffet. I tried two of their sugar free desserts, Banana Mousse and Strawberry Napoleon. I really enjoyed the Strawberry Napoleon.
The only complaint I had was lack of Asian foods. There was congee and some soup noodles at best. Thankfully, the Indian food was pretty good! I liked the naan, roti, curries and assorted pakoras.
Overall, I had fun exploring the different types of food on the Norwegian Bliss. Which type of cuisine would you like to try?
