Great Time on Glory

Sail Date: August 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Six of us flew down to Orlando the day before the cruise. We rented a van so we wouldn't have to pay for transfers. We spent the night at the WorldQuest Resort in a 3 bedroom suite which was very nice. After enjoying our included breakfast, we drove to the port and arrived a little before 11. We dropped off our luggage and 4 of us before taking the van to the rental car agency. Their shuttle dropped us off at the port and we were on the ship before 12:30.

Our room was on the Riviera Deck and had 2 portholes. The room was nice and the room stewards were friendly and did a good job.

We ate breakfast and lunch on the Lido Deck. Sandwiches at the deli were really good as well as the Chinese, pizza, burgers, buffet and of course the ice cream any time you wanted it. We ate dinner every night in the Golden dining room. Our head waitress Rosie did an excellent job. We found out she was employee of the month (it showed). The food was great! It was hard choosing what to get More some nights because everything sounded good. The creme brulee was the best!!! We wished they would have served it more than 1 night.

We attended most of the evening shows. The illusionist was very good. We especially enjoyed listening to Two for You.

We booked a side trip on our own in Belize. We took a cave-tubing trip with Jaguar Paw ( We were in a group of 9 people which was absolutely fantastic compared to the large group of people waiting at the port to go cave-tubing. Several years ago I took a cave-tubing trip with Carnival (they don't offer it any more), but it was twice the price and there was a bus load of people. We took a short hike through the jungle and floated through several caves. When we returned we had an included lunch of chicken, cole slaw, rice and beans and a beverage. After lunch Miguel (our guide) took us on a hike around the resort and showed us the cabins, swimming pool and butterfly farm as well as some native animals. He did an excellent job on the entire trip. This trip was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend it.

In Cozumel we took a taxi downtown to shop. In Costa Maya we took a taxi to the town of Mahahual and spent most of the day at the beach and shopped at the local vendors.

In Nassau we took an island tour and went to Atlantis with Gladstone McPhee (taxi #998 just outside the building at the pier) for $20.00 a person. He did a great job and we really enjoyed the trip. He was very knowledgable and gave us a tour of Atlantis.

We did self assist on disembarkation and was off the ship before 8:00. We took the shuttle to the rental car agency and drove to the airport.

This was our 2nd time on Glory - we enjoyed it both times. We can't wait to go again! Less
