Description

On a Tuesday docked in Juneau, the Norwegian Bliss dwarfs everything around it. Alaska’s new “megaship” looks less like aboat than a high-rise hotel turned on its side. Each deck — there are 20 of them — is crowded with tiny staterooms, givingthe impression that if you put the ship on its stern and chopped off the bow, it’d fit in at any resort destination.

That’s the dockside impression one gets, anyway, before climbing aboard. On Tuesday, the Empire tagged along with agroup of business and municipal dignitaries for a maritime “plaque exchange” ceremony on the Bliss, which included a tour.
