Fabulous Time on Glory
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The first full day on the boat was a day at sea. It was fun. We were let down some by the size of the pools. We pictured full sized ones but they were tiny. The hot tubs were standard size but they were full of kids most of the day. They closed the hot tubs really early which wasn't nice because that's when we would want to get in. This was a formal night and this was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. There was a range from super-formal (tuxedos and evening gowns) to not really formal at all (khakis and short sleeved polos and sun dresses). The food was really good. My husband got the lobster and loved it.
We visited Cozumel, Belize, Costa Maya, and Nassau Bahamas. I would highly recommend excursions at each stop unless you just want to walk around and look at the same stuff in different shops all day long. After about an hour we'd seen everything there was to see on the shopping front. We booked two excursions through Carnival and got our own in Cozumel. It was the cheapest and really a nice one. The next cruise we take we will most likely hold off on booking them and just get the same ones at half the price once we get off the boat.
Over all the cruise was wonderful. The food was always really good and the boat had a lot to do to keep you busy. The casino was small and crowded at night but really fun. We all loved the slots. Motion sickness was only an issue on the third day when the seas were really rough. I ended up in the room all night long because I was so sick. Six out of seven nights having great weather and smooth seas isn't too bad.
We highly recommend the Glory. It was an amazing time with lots of very friendly and attentive employees. No complaints at all. Less
