Ok, me and this site are not clicking. For some reason my loyalty status still hasn't been updated and the review I posted last night disappeared...Oh Simon! LOL
Had a good time on the Glory (May 6-13), but it was not without a few mishaps.
Because of work schedules, we weren't able to fly down until morning of the trip. 2 days before, Carnival sent an email advising we needed to add 2 1/2 hours to our scheduled arrival time (which was 10:30am) because they had to do routine testing. The ship just came out of dry dock, so what testing did they need to do??? We got the driver to take us around for a while, but still arrived a little after 11am. We had FTTF and our group was called to board around noon. They asked for ID as we boarded and I couldn't find my license (I'd just had it when we set up the onboard account), and figured it was in the bottom of my purse. I used my passport and kept it moving. We get to the cabin and I dump the purse. Somehow, within that 1 hour in the terminal, I lost my license! I almost started to panic...if I can't sit in the terminal and go to the bathroom without losing my license, how in the hell am I supposed to keep from losing my passport in the jungles of Belize? My #1 cruise rule - s%*t happens, but if at all possible, don't let it spoil the trip. I'll admit, there was some angst, but I did my best to keep from worrying. The Frog Island Iced Tea(s) really helped me to not to worry so much. I must have had a few, because by the 3rd day Alison (the bartender) had memorized my # and didn't even need to swipe my card; now that's great customer service!
We had some challenges on this cruise. My knees started acting up, our excursion at the 1st port (GC) was cancelled without notice, my husband got sick and was down for day and half. In spite of it all, rule # 1 prevailed, we still had a good time...and I'm ready to go again.
