Default Glory advice

Interested in any feedback from those of you who have been on the Glory. We are booked for a 7 day eastern Caribbean 3/20/05. Wife and I and son 15 and daughter 13 and 82 year old aunt (but the kind who wears grass skirts and coconut bras to parties!). Thanks in advance.

You and your family will love the Glory. My wife and I have cruised the Glory twice now. You will find it a beautiful ship and the food and service outstanding. Although large, it is easy to get around in. Be sure and try the hot tub in the spa area. It has a waterfall. There is no charge for this, but you do have to go thru the spa to get to it. Enjoy your cruise.

I'll be leaving on my second Glory cruise in July. Although, you're going as a family, you probably won't see your aunt or kids very often. They have lots of scheduled activites for the kids, and possibly even for your aunt. A couple of times, I was suprised to turn on the cabin tv and find my young adult sons. The ship is huge, but we had no problems finding our way around. Lots of food choices: pizza, sandwiches, fish and chips, chinese, reservation, (didn't have time to try) in addition to the buffet, and dining room. Your aunt would probably love the dance classes.

Thanks so much for the info. Interesting to hop on board the Carnival message board. Have spent a good deal of time reading posts on the Cunard site as my wife and I took a cruise to Bermuda last year on the QE2. On the Cunard site the posts stay on the first page for 12 days; on the Carnival site only 12 hours! Hard to keep one's post current I suppose. Keep responding though, I'd love to hear about things I should do and things I should avoid. Know we'll all have a great time!

Just off the Glory Eastern a couple of weeks ago. It was the greatest. Your aunt would have loved us- we had our favorite man with us. "Bud" the blow up doll!! He made many friends on the GLory!!

Sounds like a fun-loving group that goes on the Glory. Has anyone played golf on the eastern cruise. My son is a single digit handicap (at 14) and I can't break 100. Would love to hear about your experiences.
