Sure,,,the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I have done Glory twice recently,,once East, and once West. Glory is an outstanding ship, great cruise, and IMO the best food aboard any of the Carnival ships. (It's just seasoned better it seems)
If you've never been to any of these ports, you'll probably enjoy them all. It, of course, depending on what you like to do, but there is something for most everyone in St. Thomas,,,(most beautiful beaches in the world IMO) lots of shopping etc. St. Martin is very unusual in that it's shared by two countrys. Half French, and half Dutch. and Nassau has an unusual mix of things to do as well, but most wind up at the "Atlantis Hotel" with it's aquarium, beach, and casino.
Bottom line, you're going to have a great time.

Ken

Skymaster thank you for the reply. I was hoping that the first 7 day cruise we booked would turn out to be a positive experience and by reading your response back to us I know it will. Thanks again!

Sailing on the Glory was one of my most memorable experiences. There seemed to be an energy and sense of joy passed on by the crew to the passengers (if that makes any sense) which resulted in one of the best cruises I've been on. I've sailed on many Carnival ships and the Glory shares the #1 favorite spot with the Valor. Both ships are beautiful, clean, have great food, and the Carnival staff were great and contributed greatly to the overall cruise experience. As far as the itinerary is concerned, the eastern Caribbean is my favorite.

We will be on the Glory in 4 months, 3 days and 5 hours. I will let you know about it when we get back. I have heard nothing but good things about the ship and food (although the food part was not a factor in choosing this ship). She is bigger by far from the Elation and we really liked the size of her so I don't know how well we will like the bigger ship, but wanted to give it a try. I think it will be a great cruise and the ports of call played a big role in the decision. St. Thomas and St. Maarten sound really great. I can hardly wait.

Glory tied to the dock for 7 days would be great. If it takes you anywhere.........it's a plus. If the "anywhere" includes St. Thomas and St. Maarten.......... it don't get no better. Try and make it to St. John from St. Thomas. And don't miss both sides of St. Maarten. The scenery on the eastern route is BREATHTAKING!

We were on the Glory 5/12/07-5/19/07, it was our 5th cruise and our favorite so far!

The ship was great, and the food was VERY good. My kids had so much ice cream & pizza, and love it!

We did the Eastern Itin, this was our 3rd time on this route and it is still so fun and beautiful. In Nassau we did the Dolphin Encounter, this was well worth the money and we will never forget it. We have been to Nassau and if you don't shop or gamble there really is not much to do "in town". Atlantis is beautiful though.

In St. Thomas we took a cab over to the Morning Star Resort, talk about beautiful! There were 2 great pools, hot tubs, bars, restaurants, and the view of the ship was awesome. Tons of Iguanas roaming around which the kids LOVED! The pool on the cliff side was gorgeous, I want to go back to this Place. 4$ PP for the cab, each way, and he came back to get us!

In St. Maarten we shopped a little then took a cab over to Little Divi Bay Resort(short drive). We used the pool, had a GREAT lunch, and did some snorkleing. We saw tons of colorful fish and had a great time. The pool bar bartender makes AWESOME Pina Coladas. Same with the cab, 4$ PP and he came back for us.

I really like the Glory, and the kids had so much fun on the Water Slide, and Camp Carnival was good too!

We may go back on this ship!

We were on this cruise a few years back. We like the eastern better than the western. The stops on this cryuise are great. No need for your suit, visit the nude beach
The Glory is our favorite ship to date. Sailed her twice, once eastern and one western
Have fun!
