Wish I was going on The Glory again. I love that ship! Went on her Apr-May 2008. Best 7 days I ever spent. Have Fun to all of you who are cruising soon on her.

Thank you all for the responses.

Ro, you said this is a wonderful ship and I'm looking forward to the cruise.

I made a mistake when I asked if anyone was going in the near future because I'm not going until after the first of the year. Actually, we will leave, heading for port canaveral on the 30th of January and the ship will pull out on the 31st. (The actual ship date is 1/31/09).

I hope you all that are going before the time that I'm going, will have a great time and take time to enjoy the things along the way.

Please let me know if any of you will be going Jan. 31, 2009.

Thank you,

CruisinGal05

Wow; Gail, you are a "cruiser", just like my Mother. Did you enjoy the Norweigean Majesty? We cruised on that one in 07. That's about all I'm going to say about that one, lol.

I'm looking forward to our trip on the Glory. Especially now that I finally got back to reading this. It's so difficult to focus on the holidays, knowing that I'm going to be cruising after the 1st of the year.

Thank you all for your responses.

We will be on the Glory 17 Jan and 24 Jan. Getting back from 15 months in Iraq and going so spoil the family with a 2 week vacation. Cant wait to get home. I'm already buy dink coupons ahead of time. Don't want to be in shock over my sail and sign card after 2 weeks of sailing.

I live on the other side of the US; along the shoreline. We'll be traveling to Florida to board the ship.

I knew someone with the last name spencer; guess it's not you, besides, I'm sure there are many "spencers" around.

Thank you,

Hi crisingal Did I like the Norweigean Majesty it was horrible, I would never do that one again, The only nice thing I liked about it that it left from Boston, so it was on an hour away.

Default Thank You Gail

OK; I did not like the Norweigan Majesty at all. Especially after cruising on the Royal Carribean "Mariner of the Seas". That is a huge ship. I'm looking forward to the Carnival "Glory".

Gail, if you get a chance, Mariner of the Seas is most definitely worth the money. It's like a hotel on water with a mall in the center of it.

Thank you for the response.

The Glory is the only cruise ship we were ever on that we had issues with the staff. They were the most unfriendliest of any Carnival ship staff we have sailed with so far. The ship is beautiful. Don't miss the fish and chips bar on the second level of the buffet area of the Lido deck.

Gail its funny we also had issues with staff and I posted all about it on here. Never on any other ship have we had issues. The Glory was a lovely ship but a few of the staff still stand out in my mind.

Thank you both for the "heads-up" about the staff. We'll make sure we tip after the service. I'm one that will order room service every morning; gotta have that am coffee, lol.
