Kimmie--I was on the Glory last week when they experienced a propulsion problem & couldn't get it taken care of in time to sail to St. Thomas & St. Marteen. We hung around close to Florida---Nassau (planned) Freeport & Key West (unplanned) at a very slow speed. They gave us $100 to be used ONLY in the ship store as compensation. I realize that we should have gotten the insurance, and that nothing could be done about fixing the problem immediately, but after the months of planning and working hard to get to the Carribean when you only have a short vacation per year, its kind of a bag over the head. I am SURE they can afford a much better compensation. It kind of clouded my opinion of the ship in general....Renee

I was on the Glory Feb 12- 19th Western Caribbean. Watch for my review to show up in the next few days. Trip went fine, great service, nice ship and it did not sink.

We were on the GLORY March 12-19,05 and we enjoyed the ship alot. We had two adults, two teenagers and three kids so we expereinced alot of different areas. My husband and I had a balcony room and the others had inside rooms and neither of us had complaints. Food was great and the wait staff for our tables were SENSATIONAL> Definitely check out the Emerald room because the food and service was really good. We were there during what seemed to be college spring break fraternity week and I could have done with out that but that is not Carnival's fault.

OK, we got our reservation information and I have some questions.

We have a balcony room on the Lido deck. The description says:
Twin Bed/King and Single Convertible Sofa and Upper.
What does that mean?

Also - what is Old Glory? That's near our room.

The Carnival website isn't great on the deck plans. I mean, it has everything listed there, but I don't know what everything is. Is there a better/easier way to see this?

Or I can just wait the 55 days or whatever and check it out myself!

Is your whole family staying in one room? It sounds like you have twins that make the king, sleeper sofa and one pulldown bed from the ceiling. To be honest I don't remember what Old Glory is! We did enjoy the ship though and I was so glad we had the balcony room Worth our money. We would get up in our PJ's and watch the sunrise on the balcony.

Yes, all 4 of us together. It's my husband and I, plus our 4 year old and 8 month old. We all sleep in the same bed, so the king will be good!

Make sure your 4 year tries out Camp Carnival. My three kids were a little shy to go the first two days but after they got to know other kids they LOVED It! They would choose doing something on the ship with Camp Carnival rather than us.
There is a little baby pool off the beaten path off (Deck 12 I believe) at the front of the ship. There are lounge chairs there and even though we were on the ship for Spring Break there was NEVER ANYONE over there. I was SOOOO Impressed with our wait staff regarding our kids. They brought someone to our table to do magic one night, the waiters taught my kids tricks with forks and toothpicks and they got them to get up and dance with them two nights. They found out they LOVED ceasar salad and a few other things and would have two waiting for them when we arrived. The room steward REALLY catered to them too and they were not even in our same cabin! The guides on our excursions even did that. In Cozumel they had pinatas on the excursion for the kids and really made sure they were having fun too! Have a wonderful Family Vacation.
