Review of Norwegian Bliss deck 6 (Lobby-Dining)
Bliss Theater (level 1 of 2; capacity 800 seats) is the ship’s main showroom for grand-style music and show productions. The theater is served by its own bar (located on deck 7). The evening show programming has Broadway-style shows and musicals, like the “Million Dollar Quartet” (rock'n’roll best songs from pop-icons of the ’60s) and “After Midnight” (traditional jazz / big-band songs from the ’20s-’30s). NCL Bliss' signature theater shows (2 per night) are named “Jersey Boys" ("Best Musical" 2006 Tony Award, rock ‘n’ roll-themed) and "Four Seasons" (NCL exclusive musical show production by Warren Carlyle / Cuba-themed - music, dancing, costumes).
