Sail Date: Jun 2008
Cabin:

My husband and I had a fabulous time on the Glory. I surprised him and booked a suite, instead of the inside cabin that he thought we would have. When we arrived at Port Canaveral, I was very happy that we did upgrade. It was about 12:00 noon, and the regular line was soooo long. But, we zipped right through the VIP registration line, and we were on the ship in less than 10 minutes.

We had to wait awhile for our cabin, so we went to the Red Sail Restaurant for lunch. I tell you people get crazy our buffets, so be careful. You'll probably find all the tables taken in the front of the restaurant, but just keep going back, or better yet go upstairs, hardly anyone was up there. Plus, the seafood restaurant is upstairs, and they have some fantastic fish & chips, calamari/onion fritters, and awesome bouillabaisse. There is a good asian counter, as well on the first floor. Later in the week, I had the chicken and mushroom dish, and the soup (which I added some of the jalepeno vinegar and soy sauce, so it was like a hot sour soup).

We purchased a soda card ($46), and my husband and I were able to share it all week. The bartenders never compare your sign & sail card to the soda card. There's also free iced tea and punch, as well as coffee. After about an hour, we went to our cabin. My husband still didn't know that I had upgraded to a suite. The look on his face was priceless when he opened the door. He said, "Oh my God, what have you done!!!" I was smiling from ear to ear.
