Default More Carnival Glory questions-

We are staying in an aft cabin on the Glory does that mean we have to use the aft dining room or do we have a choice? Any entree's you remember that you suggest?

Supperclub is it worth the extra money? Is the food that much better then the dining room?

Deck chairs- is it hard to find one? I'm not an early riser and I know on many cruises there were way too many chairs being saved with towels, I don't think this should be allowed.

Bars, clubs on the ship-which did you like best?

Temperature on ship, I'm petite and get cold easy, how was the temperature inside?

Shows and entertainment anything you remember that I must see?

Staff does anyone know who the cruise director is? How is the service?

Fitness center-Do I need a lock for my locker or is one provided?

Ports- Cozumel, Belize, Costa Maya, Nassau- any favorite excursions? Carnival or private? Any restaurant reccomendations? Best souveniers?

"We are staying in an aft cabin on the Glory does that mean we have to use the aft dining room or do we have a choice? Any entree's you remember that you suggest? "
No, I have at times been assigned to one on the other end of the ship. Also, with one now being traditional and one not, it will depend on which one is traditional dinning.

"Supperclub is it worth the extra money? Is the food that much better then the dining room? "
If I only ate in the dinning room I would be very pleased, however I think that it is worth the $30.00 to try the supper club.
"Deck chairs- is it hard to find one? I'm not an early riser and I know on many cruises there were way too many chairs being saved with towels, I don't think this should be allowed. " I don't think it should be allowed either, in fact it is not. Having said that, we never had any trouble finding a couple of open ones.

"Bars, clubs on the ship-which did you like best? "
There is a band from the Philipines that are extremely good. Go to whichever one they are at.

"Temperature on ship, I'm petite and get cold easy, how was the temperature inside? " Technically since you are petite you only get a little cold right? My wife gets cold at times while eating or at a show. She usually brings a sweater or buys one of the $10 shawl things on board.

"Shows and entertainment anything you remember that I must see? " If you have not cruised with Carnival, go to all of them. Otherwise they may seem old.

Staff does anyone know who the cruise director is? How is the service?

"Fitness center-Do I need a lock for my locker or is one provided? " You need your own lock as I recall. I used a locker without one and had no problems.

Ports- Cozumel, Belize, Costa Maya, Nassau- any favorite excursions? Carnival or private? Any restaurant reccomendations? Best souveniers?

Thanks for the info! I got really cold on the Legend in the dining rooms and disco. Even with a long sleeve blouse and blazer brrrr I'm barely 100 lbs. Now on the Costa cruise I went on I was hot the whole week, after I packed warm stuff. Go figure. This will be my 5th Carnival cruise. I usually love the late night comedy and bands.

FYI, the Supper Club is awesome on Glory (i bet they all are). However, I will say this...eat light throughout the day. They bring you the chef's choice appetizer before your chosen appetizer, bread, salad, dinner, your dessert adn then the chef's choice dessert. It was like 7 courses, all delicious and totally worth the $30 pp. I'm going on Liberty in Aug and will be trying their Supper Club.

I loved the waterslide on Glory too if you're into that sorta stuff!

Kareoke lounge was always a good time and then off to the disco I'd go!

Have a safe trip!

Shoecat;

We stayed in 6454 on the Glory in Feb. of 07. We loved the aft balcony. It is protected at night from the breeze, and is so relaxing at night to see the green water behind the ship. We also did eat at the Emerald room for Valentines day, and it was by far the best meal I have ever had.

You will love the Glory

Enjoy

Gary I.
