Default Is Bigger and Newer Better?

Assuming that Bigger and Newer was better I booked the family for the Glory on August 16, this will be our first cruise and I wanted it to be a positive experience! I was told that just make sure you are on a "newer" ship, not really knowing what "newer" means in the cruise ship world. Anyway is the Glory and I guess the Conquest the best that Carnival has to offer, or is it just newer and bigger??? Thanks! And I still can't get my freaking clock to work!

Put another bracket-> [ in front of the img and your clock should work.

We chose Glory because it was new as well. Hopefully it will be a great experience!

Newer and bigger is not always better. It also doesn't mean it is any worse either. <VBG> Each ship needs to be judged on it's own merits and the crew changes consistantly so each time you are on the ship it is differant in many ways. We have done the Ecstasy twice, the first time was the worst CCL cruise to date, the second was wonderful. We have also done the Fascination twice and it was very differant because of the staff and itinary. Same for the Tropicale which was also done twice and the Triumph also twice even though the Triumph was close to the same both times and they were very good.
The Glory should be wonderful. I know the Cruise Director and his staff and they are the very best. I also have a feeling that some of the top people in the other departments will be onboard for the first few months to make sure everything is up to speed. I have faith that your cruise on the Glory will be the best you have ever done.

24 cruises and counting!
