Carnival

Sail Date: June 2010
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Having cruised 30+ times since 1973 and revisiting the ports for the 5th time. ..no surprises were expected. The cruise was a high school graduation gift for a 18 year old...first time cruiser.

Carnival has always been underrated in my mind... as a mass market cruise line like RCCL. it delivers good value for money. Two 4 day cruises 8 & 9 years ago on Carnival from Boston to the same ports were wonderful. This cruise on the GLORY was re: dining, the best in over a dozen years, exceeding re: quality, H.A,L and NCL. Even the buffet food was excellent and varied. We ate in the dining rooms for most meals..the choices was varied and superb...service was excellent.

The ship was packed with 3,300 passengers, 600 of them children. Unbelievably, there was not one rude or disagreeable individual to be found, the children were extremely well behaved and largely absent in the public rooms at night.

The crew was unfailingly friendly and efficient.

The More weather was hardly tropical but 90% of the time the seas were like a mill-pond and there was a total lack of "movement"....AMAZING.

Attempts to get passengers to BUY things and public address announcements were kept to a minimum... a refreshing change these days. Drinks were cheaper than on most cruises.

This was a wonderful cruise experience! Less

Again, we had visited Halifax several times before on both cruises and motor trips and just walked around the waterfront. The weather was drizzly.
