Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!
My husband and I traveled on Carnival Glory on 09/01/11. New York to Saint John, New Brunswick. We had a fantastic time. We had no trouble getting on or off of the ship, everything went very smoothly. The food was great, and there was plenty of it. The entertainment was a lot of fun, and the staff ... you won't find nicer people on any vacation you take. This was a very relaxing, fun, budget friendly cruise. You cannot go wrong with this cruise! I honestly do not understand the negative reviews. If you cannot have fun on this cruise, then I do not know what you are looking for. The day we disembarked, I wanted to turn around and sail all over again!
Saint John is a very lovely place. It was very quaint, the people are very welcoming, and we had a good time there. You do not need any tours, the main streets are a block from where the ship docks. It is not a very big place, and you should have no trouble seeing everything before the ship leaves. We walked around, saw what we wanted to see, did some shopping, and were back on the ship by 2:30 or 3:00. All in all, we had a blast, it was well worth the money, and we can't wait to do it again!
