Overall met our expectations.

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Seeing this was our first cruise we didn't know what to expect. We thought the embarktation process went very smooth. We first went to relax on the Lido Deck and and enjoy some ice tea. I felt the waiters were a little pushy with the drinks. We were asked to many times if we wanted alcoholic beverages as we already had a drink in front of us. After telling the waiter 5 times that we were all set he rolled his eyes at me and walked away. I felt that to be very insulting. It wasn't even 1pm and i don't drink that early. I thought that it wasn't a good start to a 5 day getaway. as the days went on they assumed after asking 2 times and us saying we were all set they let us be. Most of our night time drinking was in the casino bar. The casino bar tenders were very friendly and provided great service. The food in the Dining Hall was very good and the service was at a good pace. The food at the buffet overall was good but i got sick 1 evening from the meatloaf. The entertainment was more More than what we expected,we attended many shows in the Amber Palace and also on the Lido Deck. Matt the Cruise Director was more of a comedian than the comedians. Overall we had a great time. We didn`t have much sun due to storms, but Carnival has no control over the weather. We chose to sit back and let them take our bags off and this process went very well. In the future we will take our own bags off as they allow guest removing their own luggage off first. Oh and I can`t forget to say parents should control their kids as we had uncontrolled children jumping and making all kinds of noise at midnight. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Glory Interior Panorama 1011

We were pleased with everything in the room except it wasn`t cool enough. Thankfully it was a New England/Canada trip and it wasn't high temps ,I couldn't imagine going to the Caribbean and not having a room that was comfortable in temperature. The room was always clean. We over packed ,as usual and had plenty of storage space.

Port and Shore Excursions


We chose to not go on excursions and to explore the area ourselves. We rented a car and visited the fair view cemetery and then we drove out to Peggy`s Cove. Peggy`s cove nice place to visit but not a lot to do. And we found that it was less expensive to rent a car and chose what we wanted to do at our convenience.

We chose to sit back for the day, it was damp out and raining. We originally planned to walk around and sight see.
