Oh Glory. We miss U!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Well, I'm sad to report that our New Year's cruise is now over. I woke up the first post-cruise morning depressed because I couldn't find the buffet ;) But seriously, my family and I loved our 7 nights on the Glory and it started with the service.
Embarkation was painless. They broke up the lines in two sections, by cabins and we were one of the first ones to board the ship from our section, at about 11:30AM. We had to wait until 1:30 to access our cabin, but it was no big deal, since we were exploring the ship. And what a ship she is!
Muster drill was nothing special but basically the life-jackets in your room have a letter on them and you have to go to that section. This is mandatory.
The ship is very large but the staff kept it clean. Crew members were always moving and working from cleaning up your plates, to answering questions. The cabin was nice and clean, it had a balcony, there were a couple stains on the carpet but very hard to see. We will More definitely bring a power strip next time as there is only one outlet we could find. Our beds were extremely comfortable.
The Lido deck was our favorite place to be for food and more food. The food in the buffet was surprising good. They had Italian, Mexican, American, and Oriental cuisine for your heart's delight. The pizza was also delightful available 24 hours /day. We had the best experience in the Platinum dining room, with our waiters Ali and Vaughn. They extended great quality and service to us and our princess.
They shows were above average. My DD loved the illusionist, but they also had two very good comedians, a Motown singer from New Orleans, a Rockn Roll show, and a Legends show where your fellow cruisers get to audition to sing on stage. All very well done with good lights and technicians. Less

Cabin review: 8A6264 Balcony
I liked this cabin. It was basically in the middle of the ship. It had a great balcony with a great view, but the hallway was a bit noisy. I think we were across the space where the crew gathered the towels so there was a lot of crew traffic. The bathroom was small but well-spaced out. We had just enough room for our clothes in the closets.Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Our swim was supposed to be for 1pm, but I guess there were some openings and they pushed us up to 11Am. They grouped us and took us to meet our dolphin. We did the boogie-board push, dolphin kiss & hug, and belly ride. Everything was fun. My 8 year old DD loved our dolphin Tatich. We stayed in the park for a while and ate delicious steak tacos and some chips n guacamole.
Do Not take this cruise
I'd go again in a heartbeat.
Enjoyed our Western Caribbean ...
