Wasn't really hip to this ship.

Pros: Good beer selection

Cons: *not for relaxation, by any means*

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Food and Dining
* Missing salads or starters during the meals happened several times.
* Saw particularly bad service occur at a couple of other tables.
* Second seating always started 15 minutes late.
* Few worthwhile drink specials. Nasty artificial blended drinks. Fairly good beer selection, though.

Service and Staff
* General apathy towards cleanliness. I don't expect any "johnny on the spot"-type of jumping on cleaning, but the staff did really did seem to pace themselves.
* The same 40 songs were played twice a day in the pool area. Played loudly and with lots of skips, of course.
Ship Quality
* The layout of the ship is confusing, with many dead-ends and illegible signage. I chuckled when I saw people that couldn't figure out how to leave the locker room in the gym area.
* The ship had a lack of quiet areas, including an area called "Serenity" that is situated next to the fog horn. Go through a day of fog with a mind-numbingly loud blast every 90 seconds and you will not achieve serenity.
* Relatively few entertainment options. When the shows were lame in the main theater, the comedy clubs became quickly overcrowded.
Cabin / Stateroom
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Pretty cool place.The boardwalk was pretty exposed to the sun, but fairly well done. Not a lot of shopping for men, though.
Don't Miss: Citidel was Interesting
Saint John, New Brunswick
"meh" Bay of Fundy was interesting, but maybe not worth the
