What club on the Carnival GLory would you recommend for some nice slow dancing? We dont go out partying and wont be drinking, but want to do a little dancing.
Thanks,
Dee

I don't know that there is a club just for slow dancing. Most of it is the disco.

Have a question for you jrowell24. I see you have stayed in 8255 on the Verandah deck of Gory in the past. We are planning the Eastern Caribbean cruise and I have been looking at 8273. It is on the end, which I thought would be convenient and more quiet, but the deck plans show this "squilly" form and it has "Old Glory" written on it. Was it that? Would this be a good stateroom, 8273. Thanks!

Dee, I was on the Glory last year and found it quite hard to find slow or ballroom dancing. It was much better on the Liberty last week, and perhaps the Glory is better now also. But here are your best bets.

Captain's Party - get up and dance even if no one else is, there is a dance floor

The Glory Big Band will do a short show by themsleves probably first or second sea day, if they don't play slow dances it is informal enough to get on the stage and ask the leader for what you want.

Go to the Atrium. Small Trios of violins and piano or just piano. There is a dance floor and you can ask for the music you want. Dance even if no one else is. You may even win points for your color team. A trio on the Liberty was great but did not speak good english, my Italian is non existant but they understood I wanted a waltz and they obliged.

If all that fails, just go to the Disco and slow dance to the hip hop, just call me crazy.

Good Luck and have a good cruise

Cabin 8273 is next to the Atrium called the Old Glory. the squilly things are elevators and are not a problem to be near. It will make it easy to get around and easy to find your way back. In my opinion a good cabin to have if you can't spring for a balcony

jrowell24,

Thanks so much for in info (and by the way I meant squiggly, not squilly , but that does answer my question. I've been thinking about a balacony, but I don't like storms on the water. We used to have a fully enclosed pontoon and I would get sooo nervous with storms on the lake. Figured an inside I wouldn't see anything.

Want this to be a special trip as my hubby is retiring after 35 years of law enforcement. We've only gone on one cruise which was for our 25th anniversary where we renewed out vows (hubby's idea). We went to Eastern Caribbean on the Norway and it was absolutely perfect! I hope I won't be let down this time as the Norway cruise was like a fairy tale with the wedding complete with bridesmaid and bestman.

Skeetos...When I sail on Glory, I like to be as close as possible to the atrium (Old Glory) becuase the elevators are right there.

Nica...I am from extreme southeast GA (one county from FL). Yes we drove there in one shot. It only took 4 hours. That's why we leave from Canaveral instead of Miami. Where are you from?
