Seven Glorius Days on the Glory

Sail Date: December 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Embarkation was quick and easy. We were on board by 11:45 AM. The food was excellent throughout the cruise. The chocolate melting cake at dinner was to die for. The entertainment was awesome. The production shows were the best. The singers and dancers were top quality and had unlimited energy. There is a new Comedy Club that features two comedians each night in the back lounge on promenade deck. They were very funny. There were two early PG shows and two late R-rated shows. The cruise director, Ryan Fitzgerald was one of the best we have had and kept things hopping. He was always around and very friendly. He actually started as a saxophone player years ago. His nickname is Dandelion. There were non-stop activities all day long and most of the night.

The ports were very good. We did the Western Caribbean itinerary. Belize had great leather bag knockoffs at the tender pier. The best were in Terminal#1. Roatan is beautiful, but police and soldiers were everywhere. We docked so More close to the pier in Grand Cayman, that the tender took 2 minutes from the ship. The childrens programs were great since the kids were never around as they were occupied constantly. It was great ship, which will be in drydock next month. Great food and great staff. I highly recommend it. Less

Cabin review: 6B1384 Ocean View

Outside, no balcony. Ample closet space and had a mini fridge. Was in a good location, mid-ship. Easy access to elevators for dining, buffet and gangway.

Port and Shore Excursions

Great port for shopping for knockoff handbags at cheap price. Beautiful rain forests and coral reef. The long tender ride in very rough seas was not pleasant.

Cozumel had no bargains and the shop keepers were pushy and arrogant. The tours were good.

Went to Hell and back. Beautiful beaches, modern island, but very expensive. Good Tortuga rum cakes.

Beautiful island, but full of police and soldiers. West End is very much like Key West.
