Swedish Massage is $107 in port and $119 sea days. Men's haircut/ head/neck/shoulder massage, foot massage, and facial package 1 1/2 hours was $149. Just received these services on the Glory this past week. ENJOY!!!!! Fantastic

You did ask...

I have been on 11 cruises. Carnival, HAL, and others. This cruise on the Glory was the BEST yet. It was a 5 night to Canada from New York City. The ship is spectacular. It never ends, so many places to see. The entertainment was 2nd to none. Live music all over the place. A Latin trio, a Philippine Band called Music Connection, A pianist, another piano bar guy, a singer/guitarist with his own accompaniment. A reggae/island band and many more. They played at various venues through out the ship so there is no excuse to miss any of them. The best word to describe the live bands is "WOW"

The food, the never ending buffet..... unbelievable.

The service.... I don't think I've ever met such courteous people in my life. They were genuine, friendly, helpful people that seemed only to want my individual vacation to be the best.

The ship was beautiful from top to bottom. Spotlessly clean.

The casino will have some extra money now to help keep it running, lol. Not so good to me. But I had fun.

My favorite spots were the Azur Pool area way aft on the Lido Deck. Quiet covered pool area with Pizza, Grill, Bar, coffee, ice cream, and adjacent to the buffet. Not busy, not loud. Perfect!!! Also fell in love with the Adult Serenity area.

No negatives. I could go on and on. And I will at work next week.... :-)

You did good on your inaugural cruise, made sure mine was perfect. I have NO complaints. Believe it or not, everything was perfect. Have a GREAT cruise

You can check out the spa prices on the carnival website, when you log in to your cruise information. They show the differences in port and sea day prices.

Thanks boB

I will be sailing on the Glory next May to the Bahamas and this will be the first time. Just wondering what type of room did you have? Did you feel any motions during the cruise? Thinking about getting a balcony room- aft balcony or midship balcony?? or should I just get an oceanview because there is just so much to do on the cruise

I want this to be a great experience since this is our first cruise. Do you think it is worth the money for the balcony??? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!

I usually find that the spa treatments onboard cruise ships are very expensive. You will be better of to get the treatment done before your cruise or alternatively at one of the ports you are visiting especially if there is nothing interesting to do at the destination.

A massage on the cruise is MUCH more expensive than at home. But here's my thinking on it. At home, I'd need to go home, shower, and change into comfortable clothing. Get in the car and drive to the spa. Then come home and continue the day, laundry, cook dinner, clean the bathroom, all kinds of anti-spa activities.

During the cruise, I can spend the morning in the pool, enjoy a great massage, go soak in the hot tub, get a tan, have someone bring me a drink, and live the entire spa event throughout the day.

It's a lot of money, but when connected to the cruise environment, it's so much different than a spa treatment at home.
