Carnival Glory - Eastern Caribbean

Sail Date: November 2003
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Just got back from a 7 day trip to Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. Weather was not the best. Windy, cloudy and a bit chilly in Nassau. Sailed on the Legend last year and I don't know why the ships are so cold inside! The Amber Palace was freezing as well as the Red Sail dining area. People were walking around saying how cold the ship was.

Definitely liked the layout of the Legend better. Because the Glory has two dining rooms I kept coming up to the 3rd floor and couldn't get through to the lobby so had to go up to 5 and work my way back around. Also, you couldn't walk around the perimeter of the whole ship like you could on the Legend.

The shows were good although most thought the male singer wasn't that great. The gal with him was awesome! Hit bad weather and lots of people went to the infirmary. Had to cancel the Broadway shows due to the boat really rocking!--but they did the show last night and it was pretty good. Booked a guarantee inside--was hoping for More an upgrade like last year when I got a balcony--but the ship was full. Also noticed that they now charge for cappucinos & espresso if you order it with your dessert in the dining room at night..they didn't charge on the Legend.

Ship was nice and clean. Sewage smell in the corridor on the main deck. Our room was nice and quiet. Loved that the smokers had their side of the ship to helped a bit but the casino was always's funny too because there is seating in the hallway by the casino designated as a non-smoking area!!--heck, you get gassed just sitting there with all the smoke!

Please remember that if you are out late, don't talk so loud when you are returning to your room! Some women were walking by and talking loud last night and it was 3:45 a.m.!!--be considerate!!

It was an easy debarkation crowding to get off.

All in all had a good time but wished the weather had have been warmer. Guess there was a storm by Jamaica that caused the rough seas. If I had the choice, I liked the Legend's layout way better. Less
