Default Best deck for sailaway on Glory?

Which deck is the best to watch the sailaway from aboard the Glory? We have a balcony cabin, but thought it would be better to watch from a deck. Which one??

Just go up to the pool deck and enjoy the view of Port Canaveral as you pull away, doesn't get much better than that.

Go way up as far as you can go, Panorama, Sun, Spa, don't remember which one you can walk across from Port to Starboard. The Glory leaves out of Port Canaveral and if you stand on the Port side of the ship, you will be able to see the launch pads at Kennedy Space Center. The Starboard side views will be of the shoreline.

Last month we were on the Glory and had a room on port side. We just watched from our room.. Great view!

Yup if you got a private balcony cabin, use it! We were on the Glory and were in a cabin on the back corner of the boat so not only did we get a rear balcony which is the best to have in my opinon, but we also got a portside one too since it wrapped around.

Since I can't afford those fancy stern facing balcony cabins, the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I always make it up to the Panorama Deck. (1 deck above the Lido) for the best access and view of the sail away. Great deck, and outstanding visibility.

See y'all aboard.

Don't wanna be a spoil-sport, but the sailaway from Canaveral is rather uneventful. We LOVE the Glory and the facilities at Canaveral but, the ship just does an about face and you're out to sea. Not like say Tampa where you cruise down river and underneath the Sunshine bridge. Be sure and take binoculars for viwing Cape Canaveral. We could see the shuttle on the launch pad w/binoculars from our balcony (port side) and watched the 12/9/06 nite launch from about 50 miles out to sea. SPECTACULAR!!! Anyway, my favorite spot on every ship is the highest, sunniest, windiest, deck aft.

Thanks for all the replies. Everybody has their own favorite spot. At least now I have a few idea about what decks to try. We sailed out of Port Canaveral last cruise, so I know that there is really not a lot to look at. We have another couple going with us that has not cruised before, so I thought it might be nice to get them out on deck so the whistle could scare them like it did me. We are on the Empress deck, port side. We should be able to see along the beach while sailing out. Thanks again for the replies. I'm ready to go NOW!! oh, to cleveland, we also saw the shuttle on the launch pad last November. We went to KSC the day we returned from our cruise and she was sitting there waiting to be launched. Awesome.......

ALASKAN GROWN may we ask you exactly which balacony room you booked on the Glory? I just posted a question because we wanted the best balcony room. Did the room with the balacony you booked have enough room for 3 family members to stay in? Looking forward to your answer Alaskan. Thanks

You got a balcony, stay there!!!!

I don't know how it is to sail away from Port Canaveral, but Miami sailaway was pretty good. We were nose in, so we had to go to the end of the channel, turn around, and then come by all of the other ships (2 NCL, 2 RCI) to clear the channel. It took 45 minutes and I had an awesome time hanging out over the balcony watching. I might add I had a Verandah deck cabin, so one deck below the sailaway party. I missed it, but I do have 60some pictures to show off *BG*

I'll be back in Miami this September--and it can't come fast enough!--to cruise the Eastern route on the Triumph. I have a port side cabin, and am looking forward to sailing away...I even have a videocamera now so I don't miss anything.....I'll be close enough to the action to join in on the tail end of the sail away party--I have a Panorama deck cabin.

(sigh) 118 days to go....
