You can sail from Los Angeles on the largest ship to ever visit Vancouver this spring


Norwegian Bliss

There are a number of massive cruise ships that frequent Vancouver waters throughout the year. However, the Norwegian Bliss is truly enormous.

Soaring an impressive 20 decks high, the humungous vessel accommodates a whopping 4,200 passengers.

Last September, the behemoth vessel made a splash on its sole Vancouver stop for the year. As the largest ship to ever visit the city, it attracted a sizeable crowd of onlookers.

Due to the ship’s gargantuan stature, it couldn’t fit under the Lion’s Gate Bridge at high tide. As such, it had to wait a full day before it could disembark when the tide became low enough for it to do so.

Now, the five-star ocean liner returns to the city on a repositioning cruise this April.
