5 Ways to Celebrate Your Birthday on Norwegian Bliss

Whether you're turning 21 or 71, a cruise vacation is a great way to celebrate your birthday. Particularly on board Norwegian Bliss! This ship is the largest and newest of Norwegian's fleet. With more than 16 restaurants and bars, exciting activities like galactic laser tag, and award-winning musicals, there is something for everyone on board.

Instead of celebrating your birthday for just one day on land, why not celebrate by spending an entire week on a cruise? It's easy to plan and all of your friends and family will have a great time on your birthday. If your interest is piqued, here are just a few of the ways to celebrate your birthday on board Norwegian Bliss.

#1 Test Your Skills on the Largest Racetrack At Sea

Why not experience a thrill on your birthday? Floor the accelerator and whiz past other drivers on the largest racetrack at sea. You’ll reach speeds of up to 30 MPH as you run laps around your family and friends.

The racetrack onboard the Norwegian Bliss twists and turns across two decks. It offers fantastic views of the ocean beyond. Add some fun and excitement to your birthday celebration this year.

#2 Join a Mission to Save the World

Test your agility in a game of laser tag. Perfect for the young and “young-at-heart,” the Norwegian Bliss features the first open-air laser tag game at sea. Engage in guerilla warfare as you search for an abandoned spaceship in the futuristic space-themed laser-tag course. You'll have a blast on your birthday while you enjoy a fast-action, thrilling game of laser tag.

#3 Take Your Birthday Dinner to a New Level

Forget about the typical birthday dinner that you usually have every year. Enjoy a meal at one of the best restaurants at sea (or land for that matter). Celebrate with uniquely Mexican flavors at Los Lobos. Try a handcrafted margarita paired with mouthwatering carne asada. Finish your special meal with Mexican chocolate ice cream topped with a sweet dulce de leche sauce.

Stroll The Waterfront on Norwegian's Cruise Ships

For a real birthday treat, enjoy a traditional American steak dinner at Cagney's Steakhouse. Pull up a chair and enjoy a gentle warm ocean breeze at The Waterfront, an outdoor dining area featuring lovely views of the turquoise sea. Then, enjoy your steak cooked to perfection — exactly as you like it. This is a birthday meal you won't soon forget.

#4 Pamper Yourself with a Spa Suite

Experience luxury and rejuvenation on your birthday by booking a spa suite. Treat yourself to a spa mini suite, The Haven Spa Suite, or a spa balcony suite, and you'll enjoy complimentary access to the hydrotherapy pools, Thermal Spa Suites, steam room and sauna. You'll also get exclusive deals at Mandara Spa.  Spread out on one of the heated loungers for a day of relaxation. Immerse yourself in the serenity of the tranquil spa décor. Melt away worries in your private en-suite hot tub. 

#5 Indulge Your Sweet Tooth

Satisfy your sweet tooth day and night at Coco's, a delectable sweet spot that serves everything from rich milkshakes to handmade bonbons. The à la carte venue features a spectacular chocolate fountain and a variety of mouthwatering concoctions to sample. Your friends will be jealous when they see all of the delectable treats pop up on your Instagram feed.

Of course, this is just the beginning. There are so many fun ways to celebrate your birthday on a cruise on Norwegian Bliss. Check out more information about this exciting new ship here.
