Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Disappointment beyond words for the missed port in Halifax
We were aboard the Carnival Glory that did not make their port in Halifax, August 2. The disappointment is beyond words. We are having a hard time understanding why the Glory could not make the port. By reading the past posts, fog is a pretty normal occurrence in this part of the world. Also, with the navigational technology today, which I am sure Carnival uses, it seems suspect that we were not able to reach the port in a timely manner.

This was our second cruise, the first being to the Inner Passage of Alaska. We experienced some beautiful weather as well as rain and fog and still made our way to all four ports. Perhaps, a more seasoned crew piloted this ship.

Many of the reviews were from people who had much more cruising experience and didn't seem to mind the alternative activities. I'm sure they live near a port city and will have many more opportunities to take this cruise again. We are from Colorado and it is no small feat to get to a port city. It is very disappointing to miss one of two ports and will be a lost opportunity to see Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The rest of the cruise was a pleasant experience, with noticeable differences from the previous cruise line we experienced. The disappointment of the missed port colors this entire experience. Carnival advertises their "FUN" ships, but with an extra sea day, it was not that FUN! We love the idea of cruising but may be checking out some of the competitors in the future.
