We were on the Carnival Glory September 15 through the 22nd, 2007. I am not going to go on for too long on ground that has already been covered, My wife and I found the Glory easy to navigate, though the Mrs. did get a little confused in the Buffet. At no time did we get lost (except for me on the first night due to red-eye flight exhaustion). You can always find something to do or nothing to, although we tired quickly of the announcements. Food:No surprises here. We found the food to be inconsistent at times, but you could always find something tasty in the Red Sail buffet. The deli is very good. The platinum room, the food was good not great. The biggest disappointment was the Emerald Room, much ado about nothing. Drinks: As long as you didn't buy a drink with the Carnival logo on it, the drinks were very reasonably priced Ports:We spent about an hour in Nassau,but won't comment on it because it was Sunday and a short stay so we will wait til next. St. Thomas, we booked our only excursion thru Carnival. It was a good price. We were taken to Megans Bay for about two hour or so. It was wonderful and relaxing. Then it was on to Paradise Point. Beautiful views, we had two great drinks and decided to take the aerial down and do a little shopping at the port. St. Maarten/St. Martin: We absolutely love it We hired William and his van for the day (he was excellent,highly recommended,will provide e-mail if you want). We took a little drive around the island. Billy goats on the hillsides, children on their way to school. Stopped at Orient Beach, decided to come back later, Went over to Grand Case, had a beautiful view of Aguilla from there. Went on to Marigot,bought a few things loved it. We then decided to go back to Orient Beach before lunching in Grand Case (we thought). Got to Orient Beach,rented some beach chairs from the Tiki (I think). After about an hour and half,we knew we weren't going anywhere. Went back to tell William if he had other things to do it was alright by us and see you in a couple of hours. Had a couple of sandwiches and GuavaBerry drinks, floated in the water, talked with a few people (Marcos at the Tiki is also great). We love Orient beach and will be going back. And if you are worried about the nudity,don't. If you are there to relax and have fun it won't be noticed.
Embarkation and Debarkation: Easy. A little patience goes a long way.
Overall:Good Food, Great times and relaxation-which is what a cruise is for.
