Thought the ship (Glory) was very nice. We stayed on the Lido deck and had a balcony so we could sit out there and read, look out at the ocean and watch the stars. The ship sailed as smooth as silk and I was very impressed with the stress-free ease of embarkation and debarkation. The food was good, not great. Our assigned dining room waitstaff was fabulous - very accomodating and friendly. Other staff on the ship (gift shops, purser's office) were not as warm and friendly and were more abrupt, but not rude. Our ports were ok - Key West was fun but typical tourist stuff, Belize was beautiful and our tour guides there were fabulous - my only complaint was there was no time to shop before taking the tender back to the ship. Costa Maya had the most beautiful color water and we went to a nice beach. However, I felt the shore excursions were a bit overpriced. Next time we'll pass on the excursions and do our own thing. The activities for my teens (14+) were pretty much non-existent. Besides the teen "club" which was pretty lame, and the ports of call, there was not much else for them to do. I noticed some other teens around the same age just hanging out doing nothing, especially at night.

Pros: The dining room waitstaff, the slide by the pool, the chocolate buffet, the sushi bar, and all-night cheeseburgers and pizza for the kids.
Cons: Not enough activities for teens, shore excursions are overpriced
