Carnival Glory Sail 2/2-2/9

Sail Date: February 2008
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Our entire card club - 3 couples in all - arrived in Orlando on 2/1. We spent the night at the Airport Marriott and it was lovely -- food was delicious, rooms nicely appointed and the area around the pool was nicely decorated and very relaxing.

Our cabin on the ship was spacious however the furniture was very worn and in need of replacing or repairing. The food in the Golden Palace and Platinum Palace was mediocre - I would say it was comparable to buffet food. They are really pushing the supper club where we were told "all the good stuff is". The supper club charges $30 per person per night. The best dishes were the talapia, lobster, shrimp and chicken. The good cuts of beef were tough and grizzly. The hamburgers at all stations including the Platinum Palace were excellent and juicy! The temperature in the Amber Palace is frigid - you could hang meat in that room!! Two of us went back to our rooms to retrieve blankets to cover up in just so that we could watch the wonderful More shows in comfort. It is equally as cold in the Platinum Dining Room. Tax and tip are added onto everything. I purchased a soda card for the 7-day cruise and it was $46.59 total. When you ask for a soda and you show your soda card, you are given an 8-10 oz glass filled 1/2 way up with ice and 1/2 of a can of soda poured on top - they keep the other 1/2 of the soda.

All and all, we had a wonderful trip and saw many memorable sites. We took guided tours around St. Thomas and St. Martin and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Embarkation was easy and fast. You must show your Sign and Sail card as well as your passport each time you enter and leave the ship but they have a method to it and the lines keep moving. Less
