Spring Break 2014 Carnival Glory
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Not sure we will ever go on another Carnival cruise again. They have a lot of updating to do to keep up with the other cruise lines. You will see what I mean if you book a Carnival cruise and dock next to the other amazing ships. Do your investigation on other cruise lines...don't book because of the cheaper price. We have cruised on Royal Caribbean in the past and was very happy with everything they offered. Less
Cabin review: 7399 and 7378
Rooms were adequate with the exception of 1 electrical outlet and hard beds.
Port and Shore Excursions
You really don't need to book an excursion for Grand Turks unless you like to scuba. The port is right out side of Margarittaville. There are complementary chairs on the beach and there is a great pool, restaurant and swim up bar there as well. You can rent snorkel gear for $5 and do all kinds of water sports. My 2 boys (13 and 15) did the Flo Rider there and had a blast. The crew who ran the ride were very friendly and helpful. This was probably the best stop on the cruise..you got the best of everything in one stop. Not to mention it was absolutely gorgeous!!
Waste of time getting off the ship...only good thing was Fat Tuesday and Senior Frogs.
This excursion was a blast. The crew on the Castaway Girl was awesome. We took a catamaran out to snorkel and swim with the turtles. Highly suggest this trip. Don't be turned off by 75-80 people getting on the catamaran there will be room on the bow once you do the safety briefing. It was a wonderful experience!!!
