Glorious Glory.

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
My wife and our long time friends decided to do a(first time)cruise vacation. Since we are not warm weather lovers,we picked New England/Canada and the month of September. Glory is a nice ship, the staff worked non-stop to make the guest feel very comfortable. The food was acceptable in the buffet area, but much better in the Golden and Platinum restaurants, also being served adds a nice feel to the vacation. They had a deli(sandwich)area and a pizza station for late night snackers.
The interior of the ship is very impressive, our room was comfortable and big enough for two adults. They turned down and made the bed, gave us fresh towels and cleaned the room twice daily. Every evening we were surprised by a different folded towel animal sitting on our bed next to chocolate. Once we had a towel monkey hanging from up top, which took us by surprise and we laughed.
We played mini-golf and went to two or three live shows in the Amber palace, also participated in various games, More Gender challenge and others. My wife and her friend went up on the stage and did a group Thriller dance which had the audience laughing and cheering. My wife was apprehensive on taking a cruise and now we are planning a Bermuda cruise since she had a great first time experience. We even ran into a storm with 15-20 ft. swells on our way to Canada and while some people got sick (lots of ginger ale being delivered to rooms)we did not feel sick at all and did not bother us a bit. Overall I rate Glory and it's staff four 1/2 stars. My only gripe was disembarking, the ship docked at 8 AM and we finally got off a 11 AM. They need to work on that process. Less

Cabin review: 6B1375 Ocean View

A clock in the room would be nice and disembarkation was horrendous, extremely long wait, ship docked in NYC at 8 AM and we did not get off till 11 AM, wound-up having to pay $81. extra to our limo driver.
