It is a challenge to get around the port but we arrived safe and sound. We were disappointed that it took so long to board the ship almost two hours in line. We missed lunch on the ship so we decided to take the SPA tour which was awesome to learn all they do there. We did not take advantage of the specials even though they were tempting.

We got to our room which was awesome our first time with a Balcony and I have to say we can't turn back it will always be a balcony from now on. We had coffee and Danish each morning on the balcony and an after dinner wine or champagne . Awesome views. If I was a first timer I would not notice the little things our anytime dining was a disappointment the waiters were overworked and could not spend any time making the time we had there memorable. Food was cold most times. We could have gotten the same meal on Lido Deck at least that was what it felt like except we were waited on. We did enjoy the ship it was awesome!

The Christmas tree and the caroling each night and the snow falling was so festive for the Christmas season. We had movie night on the lido laid back on the chairs with popcorn enjoyed the outdoors, and we had late pizza and snacks. Hot Tub was very therapeutic we enjoyed it after walking all day. The ports of call were awesome we enjoyed each port the weather we had was a blessing we did our walking tour and shopping. We had a great room steward he was very attentive to what we wanted made himself available and always kept our room neat and clean. The Glory is so big and spacious you don't feel crowded it is decorated with good taste and so much to do day and night.

Cabin Review

We were upgraded to a balcony room it was awesome. I don't think we will ever go back to an interior room again. It was spacious and we enjoyed have coffee and Danish each morning on the balcony. Each evening we had wine or champagne. The steward for our room was accommodating he was always available and the room was kept clean. Loved the room service very friendly staff.

Port Reviews


We were disappointed with this port.

St. Thomas

We had to take a shuttle into town to walk around and enjoy shopping in the shops. Nice.

San Juan

We loved San Juan, PR we walked from port up into the town of cobble streets and the buildings had balconies very interesting and the shops were local an diversified. We also took the shuttle around town for the rest of our tour. Love it.

Grand Turk

Wow! The beach was awesome the clear water was inviting. This was a place to relax and enjoy the shopping.
