This cruise to Canada was "adequate". Pros: stateroom with oceanview balcony with one very comfortable king bed. 6th floor near front very quiet. Room service punctual, friendly. On the whole, maid service also very good -- although two calls had to be made on one occasion to get attention to our cabin. Pools: lots of pools and whirlpools to choose from with or without children. Wine prices per bottle not out of reach. Shows on board good production and active screen on set behind dancers excellent prop. Food - available at all times Ports: St. Martin sea caves beautiful. Halifax interesting: citadel worth 2 hour visit, public garden worth 15 minutes, Peggy's Cove pretty.. WIFI: available.
Cons: Loud music everywhere! (Must go to stateroom to escape it...) Pools: whirlpool way too strong pressure from water. I don't know why they turn them up so high -- it was uncomfortable from start, unbearable after 5 minutes. Food quality was fair to good. All free drinks (iced tea, fruit juice, coffee, tea) except for lemonade were satisfactory. Wine selection fair. Shows on board: Klug lights in the theatre impossible to avoid in audience first ten rows -- had to shut eyes throughout performance. Ports: St. John is not a pretty city. They are hard hit by economic downturn and it shows. I feel for the population of the city, but it makes for a poor holiday destination. The market is hardly worth a stop of more than 15 minutes: recommend heading out as soon as possible to St. Martin and hopefully seeing the changing tides and possibly kayaking the caves if you can. Reversing falls interesting phenomenon -- but subtle. Dramatic Fundy tide changes can be seen at St. Martin's and Peggy's Cove. WIFI: expensive! Tried to get it in port -- almost impossible to connect for free :( Guest services never answers the phone and plays a recording all day.
Fun ship Glory: overall this is for people who like to drink a lot and like loud music. There is little for adults to do on at sea days except gamble, drink and eat. No more Carnival for me.
