Default Glory- too rocky?

I'm planning a Caribbean cruise in Jan/Feb 2007. I've read that Glory is a much rougher ride than the other ships. Is this true?

Not in my opinion. No different from any of the other ships I have been on.

We were on the Glory in September. We barely felt the movement. Great ship, great ride.

Hi,

IMO, the '' ride '' has nothing to do with the ship ( with the exception of its size...)
The seas will dictate what kind of sailing you're in for....
Similar size ships will deal with similar size seas the same way, 90-95% of the time.
High seas== rough ride : count on it

Happy sailings
Cheers

Default GLORY

Passengers that were on previous week to me said it was so rocky that 2 shows were cancelled. My 3 days before disembarking early were not rocky in terms of the sea. The ship was terrible, the worst either myself or my traveling partner ever been on including old and new Royal Carribean ships, Princess old and new, Celebrity, Costa and Norweigan.
The worst of the above were a million times better than Carnival Glory.
I'd avoid this ship at all costs!

Default Not Rocky

Not the case on our trip. It's no more rocky than any other ship in my opinion. Any week could experience rough weather/water causing the cruise to be bumpier than others, but the Glory is stable.

On our way to St. Thomas from Nassau 2 years ago, we hit some really nasty water while on Glory, but never saw it bother anyone on board, including myself was also worried beforehand about seasickness. Forget about it!

Out of our 11 cruises, the Destiny and Glory were the rockiest, probably because of their tall and short design compared to other ships. We were on the Glory in December, and were somewhat affected by the motion, not to the point that it affected our cruise or anything, it was more of an annoyance.

It's all about the seas, not the ship. We had rocky weather for at least one night on our first 2 cruises, but it was the ocean, not the ship. We sailed the Glory in Sept., 2004 and the ride was fine.

Mark made the comment that the Destiny and Glory were rocky because of their tall and short design as compared to other ships.

Allow me to point out that the Conquest, Glory, Valor and Liberty are 952 feet long and 116 feet wide. Hardly short and tall in design.

The Destiny, Triumph and Victory are all 893 feet long and 116 feet wide.

The Spirit, Pride, Legend and Miracale are all 963 feet long and 106 feet wide. None of the above mentioned ships could be considered short and tall.

Just for comparison, from RCCL, the Serenade, Jewel and Radiance are all 962 feet long and 105.5 feet wide. So all in all, not a lot fof difference in these ships.

The sea conditions dictate the ride of the ship. Why would the Glory ride rough when it's three sister ships which are identical in tonnage, length and width ride smooth ? Why would the Destiny ride rough when the Triumph and Victory, being equal in tonnage , length and width ride smooth? You can't judge how a ship rides from week to week as on cruise A the sea may be such that the ship does have some movement. The next week on cruise B, it may be calm all week and be an entirely different ride. What's rough to one may not even be noticable to another.

I have sailed on ships from 18,000 tons up to the Voyager class and most every size in between. I have sailed on the Glory and on the Destiny 2 times. Neither are peculiar in their movements. Any ship on the ocean is at some time or other going to do whats natural--- move with the water.

It's a ship. It's a cruise. It will move. How much no one knows.
Relax and roll with it.

We had no problems either - but you have to remember the Glory actually starts out in the Atlantic Ocean - and it takes a while to get to the calm seas of the Caribbean. She was our "first time" and we enjoyed every minute on her.

Stop worrying and prepare to enjoy your cruise

I have to say the Glory is rockier than other Carnival cruise ships I've been on. And, the crew that I spoke pretty much substantiated the claim that the Glory is a little rougher than other ships. However, with all this said, the Glory is a fantastic ship...one of the best I've been on out of my 13 with Carnival. I would not hesitate to sail on the Glory again.
