Norwegian Cruise Lines’ new Norwegian Pearl hopes to bowl over the competition with its latest onboard innovation a full size bowling alley. The four-lane, ten-pin bowling alley is part of a unique onboard entertainment, sports bar and nightclub complex called Bliss.

During the day, Bliss will serve as a sports bar, complete with bowling alley, multiple flat screen televisions, air hockey, foosball and other arcade games available for passenger entertainment. The alley will also host bowling parties for guests of all ages. Gutter bumpers will automatically pop up for kids’ bowling parties or for adults who might need a little help with their scores.

In the evening, Bliss will transform into a dance lounge, with videos playing on the plasma screens, and music provided by Norwegian Pearl’s D.J.

Bliss will sport a deep red, blue and purple color scheme. Furnishings will include plush seating with high back chairs, day beds with cushions and pillows and comfortable banquettes near the bowling lanes.

“We are constantly pushing the Freestyle Cruising theme on our ships bringing our guests all kinds of unexpected opportunities to relax and have fun as the mood takes them. What better than to bring one of the most popular landside activities in the nation onto a ship,” said NCL president and CEO Colin Veitch.

In addition to the new bowling alley, Norwegian Pearl will also feature the hallmarks of NCL’s Freestyle Cruising fleet, such as multiple restaurants, vibrant public rooms, versatile, family-friendly accommodations and NCL’s popular new style of accommodations Courtyard Villas.
