First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

My husband and I have been on over 20 cruises...this was our 4th time on the Glory. We live near the port, so we headed to the ship at 10:30 a.m. and were met with a huge traffic jam, which is unusual. We soon found out that the ship had been involved in a rescue and had come into port late, which is why people were still getting off the ship at 11:00. We are platinum with Carnival and as soon ...

Age 60s

My son, girlfriend, and DH and I drove to Dallas to catch our flight. Never again will I make a 4.5 hour drive to catch a flight. While we made the drive fine, none of us got any sleep the night before our flight due to our late arrival in DFW. EMBARKATION: This was a breeze. We arrived to the port by LIMO (highly recommend Limo Orlando) from Orlando. This was a surprise for my son and his ...

My wife and I are in our 20's and this was the 7th cruise for us on Carival and the Glory was the 4th Carnival boat we have been on. I want to start off by saying that we booked this cruise the day after we got off the boat in May 2009, prior to hunting season dates beign published. I was very much looking forward to this trip until I realized that I wa going to be missing 2 weekends of hunting ...

Age 60s

Had done Disney twice, RC and Norwegian once each and all were great. Just didn't want to do Carnival due to their adds and rumors of constant partying. But got a good rate and this fit all of our needs so decided to give it a try. Went in with zero expectations. Truthfully, I was expecting to be terribly disappointed. And it turned out to be just fine and I would do Carnival again! And believe me ...

First Time Cruiser

My husband and I are in our 60's and this our first Carnival Cruise. We have sailed once on Holland America and once on Royal Caribbean. I picked this cruise because of the value and itinerary. We flew in to Orlando Friday, rented a car thru Avis and drove to Cocoa Beach to the Days Inn. The price was reasonable, the room was very clean and freshly painted with a convenient location. ...

Age 70s

Have been on about five other Carnival cruises and this one ranks on the bottom. First the way the ship Red Sail Restaurant looked was old looking and dark not like the Liberty or Valor. Some cakes and deserts seemed old like left over from the cruise before, rest of food was good, but I hate chicken turkey so I ate a lot of sandwiches from the Deli. Lunch and dinner I would eat a salad and bake ...

Age 50s

This is my husband and my fourth cruise and our two daughters (ages 12 & 10) third....all with Carnival. We decided to leave the evening before the cruise to avoid the hassle the day of. Our flight left Milwaukee around 5:15pm and with a layover in Atlanta, we arrived in Orlando at 11:00pm. We rented a car and drove less than 10 minutes to stay at the Quality Inn Airport Hotel. It was nice and ...

We arrived at Port Canaveral just after noon, and ...

Age 60s

Let's start at the beginning. Arriving at the Port on a beautiful sunny day, parking was easy. Embarkation went smoothly, approximately 30 minutes until we were on board. Had lunch on the Lido deck, the Red Sail buffet food was so/so but the deli made me a tuna melt that was good. The grill on the Lido deck had good burgers & hotdogs that my husband liked. Our room was ready by 1:30, the room was ...

We just sailed the Glory from 10/9-10/17/09. This was our 3rd cruise and quite possibly the last with Carnival. Unfortunately, I don't have very many positive things to say. We embarked in Port Canaveral and that did go fairly well, almost. In all the excitement of checking in and getting our Sail & Sign Card, we failed to notice that the 2 other family members we were traveling with had been ...
