Carnival Glory Cruise Review
This was our second cruise on Glory and the ship continues to meet our expectations. We board in Port Canaveral but get ready for some long lines and were still on board within 40 minutes. We booked a wheelchair accessible balcony room for our adult paraplegic son and it was EXCELLENT. Someone has given Carnival guidance on what is actually needed ! My wife and I enjoyed another balcony room identical to our previous cruise.
As usual the main dinning room was our favorite experience. I always get a kick out of everyone feeling they have the BEST wait staff. Our favorites are the sea foods (especially the lobster, order 2 tails) but I was also impressed with the steaks and prime rib. The desserts are always interesting and we liked the chocolate melting cake. The buffets offer a variety of nice choices but we like to take advantage of the sit down privileges for breakfast and lunch. The Fish n' Chips is also excellent.
The seas were very rough and the ship was quite rocky but who cares we were on vacation. We always enjoy the singers and dancers but we skip any kind of magic or comedy act. The was an Elvis impersonator on board and he actually gave a matinee show that I was impressed with.
We really felt like relaxing so skipped all shore excursions and just enjoyed some shopping. In regard to both of our cruises on Glory... we love it ! Our cabin stewards do their usual fine job. How nice it is to come back to a clean room and slip under that wonderful comforter.
We are taking our second Glory
Eastern Caribbean cruise with friends (first time cruisers) and are already
counting the days. Just a final personal opinion... we enjoy the Eastern over
