The Glory is a wonderful small ship - 50 passengers - and this 10 day itinerary from Providence, RI to Portland, ME has so many beautiful ports. The food was the best we have had in 6 other American Cruise Lines trips and featured shellfish at every meal. The young servers and deck hands can be inexperienced but are cheerful and eager to please. Just be patient - you are on vacation after all! Wine with lunch and dinner is a treat. Evening cocktail hour was marred by rude guests raiding the bar before staff arrived to start the event, but you can't control the guests. Normally American Cruise Lines guests are mature, respectful experienced world travelers, and of course there were many of those on this trip as well. The historian/speaker was so knowledgeable and easy always with us. The local entertainment in the evenings was mostly perfect. We stayed at the Residence Inn Providence Airport one night before the cruise and the shuttle service was appreciated. American offered a shuttle to the Portland, ME airport at the end of the cruise. Short excursions were mostly bus trips but also included a schooner sailing, and a lobster bake at a beautiful museum grounds in Rockland, ME. Cabins are small but most of your time is spent up on deck enjoying the scenery. Most days are completely spent in ports so lots of sightseeing is possible. This is a great itinerary and we were blessed with perfect summer weather.
Cabin is more than adequate with plenty of room for suitcases under the bed. Closet is a little small but dresser space is great. Bathroom is small but functional.
