Carnival Glory Cruise Review by SurferJoe57
- Sail Date: May 2013
- Destination: Nowhere
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
- The very aft of the ship will "wag" like a happy dog's tail. I find this very relaxing and sleep very well. There's a decent amount of vibration and rocking. On the Glory, the aft cabins on the main deck are right below the Platinum Dining Room - meaning that at 9:30 pm when the 2nd dinner seating "show" goes (the service staff will sing a little song and dance - it was "Gungham Style" this week)- you can hear and feel it in your cabin. Otherwise, very quiet. Overall this is my favorite location; down low and isolated.
- Most passengers prefer mid-ship, as there's minimal vibration and rocking.
- I don't prefer the bow, as in rougher waters, the bow will "pitch" much more than the stern...just like Uncle Bob's speedboat.
- The higher up decks will have greater arcs of motion, like the end of a see-saw plank as opposed to being close to the fulcrum. Also bear in mind that if you're up closer to the public spaces (Decks 6, etc), you're going to hear all manner of people coming and going all night.
The staff was wonderful, Konstantin, the Matre D'Hotel for the Platinum Dining room, is fantastic - and does an extremely credible Sinatra in the nightly after-dinner-song.
