A great family experience

Sail Date: June 30, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful and very clean. The employees were very attentive and seemed concerned that our experience was a good one.

Pros: Food

Cons: 3 of the 4 ports of call were disappointing

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
At this port - the shopping was in a fenced in area as outside we were told was again dangerous. Unless you were on a tour you were really stuck. Since all the stores are in one area there was not opportunity to "make a deal". However there was a nice pool with a good view and that made up for the time it took for us to get off the ship and walk there.
Nassau, Bahamas
Always a fun place to visit however, on this trip there was not enough time to do all we wanted to do. Only had from 10:00 am to 3:30 to be back on ship and by the time we waited to get off ship it was after 11:00. Shopping and the straw market did not disappoint - lots of fun haggling for the best deals and they made sure to work the deals. Would have liked more time to visit more of the island and get to the Atlantis.

Cozumel, Mexico
We did not do an excursion as our on board "shopper" made it sound like an exciting place for good buys. However, the shopping was not good, the stores not impressive, and it was recommended to not stray off the recommended path as it could be dangerous.
