This was our 6th cruise. 5th on Carnival. D and I booked a cruise to Canada and I did not want to take it so I called and changed it to the Western Caribbean. I book Cozumel, Beliz e, Costa Maya, Nassau. Then, two week before we set sail they closed all ports into Mexico. Of course we did not care where we sailed just so we sailed. I had booked on the Carnival Glory. We had sailed this ship before and liked it. Same cruise. We ended up cruising into Grand Turk, Ocho Rios, Grand Caymen.
We alway drive from home to were ever we cruise from. We drove from NW South Carolina to Port Canaveral. We have stayed at the Raddison by the Port on several occasions so I book a room the night before. We like it and we leave our car there they shuttle us to the port from the Hotel.
We called ahead and reserved us a seat on there shuttle. We had to wait before so I did not book untill 12:00pm. That is check out time. We had breakfest they now have a free breakest buffet if you book a room with car reservation. Breakfest was good. We went back to our room an stayed untill check out. Very restfull morning. We walked to the desk at 12:00 checked out and waited about 45 min. They were running 30 min to an hr behind on the Disney shuttle.
We were on board the ship by 1:30pm. Our cabin 1033 was ready when be boarded. We went to lunch and came back. Our first suitcase was by the door. We relaxed and then went to the life boat drill. Then back to the room dropped off our life jackes and up to the deck to set sail.
Our Cabin was an inside cabin. We both like the inside cabins. We have had both. The inside is dark and you sleep so good. Our cabin steward Edwin dropped by to say hello and to say he would be on duty from 6am until 6pm. Just call if we needed anything. He was very attenative. Kept our room very clean and tidy. Amimals were very good every night.
Dining, our waiter was Cesar from Vensuala. He was very good. They did a new song and as usual they all did a great job. We were seated at a table with 3 other couples. One from TX, one from LA and one from NC. Everyone was so nice. We enjoyed eating with them each night.
Glory crew was very friendly, very helpful.
Thank you Carinval Glory for another wonderful cruise. I cant wait for our next one!
