The ports were great and the weather was beautiful. We really enjoyed Half Moon Cay and Grand Turk.

The food was good, as there were a lot of options to choose from. I loved the chocolate melting cake, which is the signature dessert.

The stateroom was spacious and our stateroom attendant was great. We never had to ask for anything.

The entertainment and activities were generally boring. There was nothing creative. On the days that we were at sea all day (which was two), there was nothing to do unless you wanted to play ping pong, bingo, bean bag toss, or trivia. These activities are okay, but after seven days of being on the cruise it got real boring. They need alternate activities. The activities crew needed to be more enthusiastic. There were 10 in our group and we all felt they were not excited about what they were doing. They need to keep the passengers excited.

We booked a historic tour and did the Bacardi Rum Tour in San Juan from an independent tour guide, who was great. He was very informative and he enjoys what he does and it shows. We went to paradise in the sky in St. Thomas. It was okay but nothing great. If you want a bushwacker (an alcoholic drink), that's where you could buy one. We rented scooters in Grand Turk from Tony and we had a blast. We drove all over the island and saw some beautiful scenery.

This was our 4th cruise. There are five couples that travel together every January and we usually cruise on Royal Caribbean. We were not impressed with Carnival Glory. It was lacking in many ways. On a scale of 1-10, we gave it a 4.
