7 Night Canada/New England (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 10, 2011

Great prices for this cruise but you sacrifice some quality and variety to get it. Ship was well laid out and the staterooms were nice if a little worn. Service and food in the dining room was just fair. The production shows and comics were mostly good but activities were limited and the bar prices were high. Communication through announcementss and the daily bulletin were not very good. I would recommend for 1st time cruisers or those that can't afford anything else.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The dining room was a little chaotic and the food quality was only fair. Our waiters had trouble getting our orders correct. Food variety at breakfast and lunch in the main dining room was limited. The casual dining venue was crowded but Glory did provide several smaller venues that had good food: Fish and Chips, Burrito Bar, Pizza, Deli, Grill, and Mongolian Wok. The soft serve ice cream and yogurt were a hit.


3 out of 5
Not much scheduled during day and the top ten list of activities for each day usually included the temporary tattoo artist and the art auction as a highlights. Bingo was only one game. Good shows in main lounge and comedians in Punchline Comedy Club. (3 out of 4 comedians were good. 1 was horrible)

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our cabin steward was great but the cruise directors staff not so much. The dining room waiters only gave fair service.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship had a good layout and decor but was a little worn.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Out stateroom was comfortable and had good amenities but reeked of cigarette smoke. Our room steward did change out curtains and attempt to get rid of the odor. All cabins included a robe, hair dryer, and bathroom amenities.
3 out of 5
Old Town Trolley and Harbor Cruise were good and let you see the city. We booked on our own.
Don't Miss: Boston Public Gardens and Old North Church were my favorites
3 out of 5
Took taxi tour to Durrenburg, Peggy's Cove and Halifax. Great lobster lunch in Peggy's Cove. Too foggy to see anything in Durrenburg. Peggy's cove is charming fishing village with light house out on large boulders. Cementary with Titanic victims was an unexpected highlight.
Don't Miss: Peggy's Cove
5 out of 5
Trolley Tour and Harbor Cruise were very good. Again booked on our own.
Don't Miss: Tour of harbor and Head Light house
1 out of 5
Not much here.
Don't Miss: Tour Boat into reversing falls

Pros: Price, Fish and Chips Restaurant, Cabin Steward

Cons: Activities, Cruise Director, Dining Room Food and Service
