A good surprise

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Embarkation: Arrived @ 2 PM; lots of standing in line here & there. The decor is OK. I hear it's going to be re-furbished this fall. My cabin (interior) was fine. Nice little bathroom; great shower.

Food in cafeteria was pretty good. Wonderful deserts including the best key lime pie I've ever had. There are no trays so it isn't always easy to get your food and drink before sitting down. Had a wonderful salad every day: variety of lettuces + toppings including toasted pumpkin seeds. Dinner in the Platinum restaurant (late, fixed)was a joy every night. The menus look like they come from a greasy spoon, but it was mis-leading 'cause it was fine dining. The dishes were inventive, beautifully garnished and delicious! Service at our table for 2 was excellent. I could live without seeing the waiters dance.

Lido/Outdoor are: Didn't have good weather on our 2 sea days, so didn't spend all that much time there. Did enjoy the outdoor movie screen where I took in Rod Stewart More & Tina Turner concerts. Was happy to find the Serenity area (for adults) with the comfy lounges, hammocks and such.

Entertainment: Didn't take in very many shows. Liked very much the Illusionist accompanied by Rock music. Liked the magician at the Burgundy Bar. The only real negative was that the White Heat Dance Club was creepy. It's ironic that a place with 2,000 light bulbs had only the dance floor illuminated. You could tell that there was a bar & bartender back there, but how could he see what he's concocting? What's all this darkness about?

Safety drill was in 3 languages & unbearably long. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Glory Interior Upper 6377

Music 'till 12 MN every night as I was over the Camel Club casino. Awakened every morning @ 6:45 by the steward's cart going over the hump in the hallway. B A M.
