It was our first time on a large ship. We had sailed on Fascination and Celebration in the past. Glory is truly a beautiful, clean, easily accesible ship. The embarkation process was quick and not stressful. The food was very good, always hot and well presented. The wait staff, and room stewards were second to none. The public areas of Glory are numerous and well maintained. The shows by the Glory Singers and Dancers were quite good. How they do 4 separate shows so well on a 7 day cruise is remakable. Only two complaints - NO ESPN on the television and the deembarkation process was horrible. MY wife and I chose self-assist because we needed to be off the ship early and enroute home. Imagine our surprise when self-assist were mixed in with others leaving the ship. Some one hour and fifteen munutes later and our deck not being called (The Verranda), we made our way to the elevators and found a number of people waiting and the elevators not stopping at our deck. We drug our luggage downstairs, got in line and exited the ship. I understand VIP's and special needs being allowed to exit first (which was called at 7 A.M.) but why have self-assist if no real priority is given? Yiu should work hard on this!
