This marks half the NCL fleet back in service.
Bliss is the second NCL ship to carry passengers on the West Coast following the restart of Norwegian Encore's Alaska voyages from the Port of Seattle in August. (Encore just closed Seattle's cruise season on Sunday.)
Norwegian Bliss will sail from the Los Angeles World Cruise Center on weeklong and five-day cruises to the Mexican Riviera, visiting such ports as Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Ensenada. On Jan. 21, the ship will embark on a 14-day Panama Canal voyage to PortMiami via Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica's Puerto Caldera (Puntarenas) and Cartagena, Colombia.
