The Norwegian Bliss made history as the largest passenger ship to transit the Panama Canal. Because the ship was so large, it had to use the newer Neopanamax locks.

The Bliss is also one of the last cruise ships to go through the canal during the 2017-2018 cruise ship season, which ends on May 24.  “We are very proud to help the Panama Canal close out the season with the crossing of our highly-anticipated ship, Norwegian Bliss,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line  in a statement reported by cruiseindustrynews.com.

This is Norwegian’s newest ship on her inaugural voyage from New York to Seattle (by way of Miami). Once she arrives in Seattle, she will be officially christened  on May 30, and spend the summer hosting 7-day cruises to Alaska, with calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia. In the fall, she will head towards the Eastern Caribbean from Miami. In 2019, she will return to New York City and sail seven-day voyages to the Bahamas and Florida, the Southern and Western Caribbean.
