Vegan Friendly & Plenty to Do
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Their gym was quite decent, and what's better than looking at the ocean as you run on the treadmill or lift weights! They have Life Fitness equipment, ellipticals, bikes, steps, mats, and free weights. They offered Spinning, Yoga or Pilates classes for $12/each or $10 in a 3-pack. I passed on those, wondering how you'd hold a tree pose on the swaying ship. They also offered free fun half-hour classes in hip hop, disco, line dancing and the Thriller Dance. Those were fun and easy, not a workout, though. They do have a jogging track on the open upper deck, but it was too windy when the ship is moving. There are plenty of places to walk on the ship and taking the stairs is a good option. I actually found it fun to do some cardio, core and strength exercises in the small pool (all are saltwater). Bring your webbed gloves for resistance! It was quite awesome to workout in the pool in that setting. It was also fun to dance in the White Heat Disco Club, in which the DJ played cool, modern, dance club music.
Even after all that eating and activity, there's still plenty of time for rest and relaxation. The shows were great, particularly the Illusion one (even if you think it will be dumb, go, you'll like it.) A cruise, particularly the Carnival Glory cruise, is a delight for all the senses! Less
We had an oceanview cabin on level 1 in the very back of the ship. We thought that was kind of a bummer, but it really turned out to be just fine. Although I am prone to motion sickness, Dramamine worked like a charm. The cabin was a little bigger than we had on a previous cruise, so we were pleasantly surprised.
