Default 1st Time on Carnival Glory

THIS WILL BE MY SECOND CRUISE, BUT MY FIRST ON THE CARNIVAL GLORY OUT OF PORT CANAVERAL FOR A WESTERN CARIBBEAN CRUISE JULY 11TH.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE SHIP?
IS THERE A LOT TO DO?
WHAT DO YOU RECCOMEND?

THANKS EVERYONE!

I was on the Glory out of Port Canaveral Aug 2007 for the eastern cruise. The Glory is awesome, lots to do! The waterslide is fun, lots of shows, bars, casino, pools etc...The best part though, was the Supper Club! It costs an extra $30 per person, but my God, it's well worth it. It's a nice, quiet dinner in the Emerald Room; quite different than the dining room experience every other night. I would highly recommend it. Our cruise director, Wee Jimmy made the cruise what it was though. I hope for your sake, you have him If you cruised with Carnival before, you will get inviited to a past guest reception. It's free food/drinks for an hour or so; nice perk!

I'm going to the western caribbean myself in Aug on the Liberty! What ports are you visiting?

I heard a few things about Wee Jimmy last year. One was that he wasn't on the Glory anymore and the other was that he was on his vacation...so who knows. If anyone has recently been on the Glory can you let us know. I know he was on it in April of 07 and let me tell you he is amazing. Never a dull moment on the ship he is on I can guarantee it!

Wee Jimmy was on the Glory in January '08, but he got off with us to go on vacation. And was changing shipd after that. Not sure what ship he is on now.

The Glory is a great ship, lots to do. Here are a few out of the way things we recomend. There is a hottub in the gym with a waterfall. Due to the fact that few people use the gym on vacation (or even know where it is ) you can normally have this hottub all to yourself. Another great feature of the gym is the his/hers saunas. They have full glass walls looking out over the ocean. So relaxing to just sit in there and look at the water. Also on the front of the ship on the Empress Deck is a great "Hidden" balcony. Doors are in either front corner of the deck. It is huge and looks out toward where the ship is heading. Great view, especially at night. Just be careful what you do out there, the bridge is right above and behind you. And can see what you are doing . Have a great trip!!

Thanks so much! Those sound like great things to try that I wouldn't have thought of. And thanks for the heads up on the bridge being in view, lol. Although I am sure they wouldnt mind seeing some action every once in a while, lol

I think my fiance and I are the only ones who posted on your roll call. I guess it's going to be an empty ship

Cool. I had heard it's a good choice b/c it has cabins above it and below it.

Just an FYI to my fellow Tampa-ites. We found the Super Shuttle to be cheaper than parking at the pier. Plus, they drive! We are in north Pinellas, so expected it to be expensive, but not so much.
Anyway, have a great time!
