Cabin 2484 Cruise to Nowwhere

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Cruise to Nowhere
Embarkation: Norfolk

Just a short review as it was a short cruise. Carnival does the weekend "Cruise to Nowhere" out of Norfolk to round out the Glory' weekly calendar during it's Caribbean season (the ship goes up to Boston/Canada for the summer starting in June). The wife and I got a last minute deal on Cabin 2483, which is an ocean view at the very aft end of the ship. Two remarks for those trying to choose what cabin (disclaimer - I also spent 30 years in the Marine Corps and have spent years on almost all manner of ships).
- The very aft of the ship will "wag" like a happy dog's tail. I find this very relaxing and sleep very well. There's a decent amount of vibration and rocking. On the Glory, the aft cabins on the main deck are right below the Platinum Dining Room - meaning that at 9:30 pm when the 2nd dinner seating "show" goes (the service staff will sing a little song and dance - it was "Gungham Style" this week)- you can hear and feel it in your cabin. Otherwise, very quiet. Overall this More is my favorite location; down low and isolated.
- Most passengers prefer mid-ship, as there's minimal vibration and rocking.
- I don't prefer the bow, as in rougher waters, the bow will "pitch" much more than the stern...just like Uncle Bob's speedboat.
- The higher up decks will have greater arcs of motion, like the end of a see-saw plank as opposed to being close to the fulcrum. Also bear in mind that if you're up closer to the public spaces (Decks 6, etc), you're going to hear all manner of people coming and going all night.

The staff was wonderful, Konstantin, the Matre D'Hotel for the Platinum Dining room, is fantastic - and does an extremely credible Sinatra in the nightly after-dinner-song. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Glory Oceanview Riviera 2484

Great view; we found the "wagging" at the tail of the ship very relaxing - but if you don't like vibration and rocking, move to a mid-ship cabin. Only noise is from the Platinum Dining Room above - but it's closed by 9:30 PM and not open until the next night. Plenty of closet space. Quiet, isolated.
