Terrific Time in New England and Canada

Sail Date: September 24, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We just returned from a New England/Canada cruise on the Carnival Glory. Embarkation went well, and we loved the stops on this trip. Boston is so very full of American History that we needed longer in that port. It was the shortest stay in port on the trip. Food was good and we had overall just a great time. The ship is not one of the newest, but well kept. There were less teens and children on this cruise, which we enjoyed for a nice change from the other Carnival cruises we have taken. (No, I don't hate children or teens -- just nice change.) We had an inside cabin on the Upper Deck (6). It was plenty of room for two of us and we didn't spend large amounts of time in our cabin. There is no perfect way to handle large amounts of people at times, but Carnival does a good job. Our transfers worked well. The drivers are INSANE in New York, and our transfer to the ship felt like sure death. Otherwise, the trip was just about perfect for us.

Pros: Great stops

Cons: Too short of a stay in Boston

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Don't do a room on 6 Aft if noise bothers you. One can hear music from the club below, but we didn't have problems sleeping through the noise as we are just sound sleepers.
Service and Staff
Always addressed by our names. One photographer, Josip, was exceptional!!!
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Good port as well. We had wonderful weather and loved the Maritime Museum.
Portland, Maine
A place that I could live. Nice homes, and great scenes. Kennebunkport was fun and we had our first Lobster Roll at the Crab Shack, which won the Food Wars Award for Best Lobster Rolls in Portland.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Fun local crafters selling goods at reasonable prices. Friendly people. Bought some bargins here for friends such as SeaGlass necklaces made by a local crafter. Had great weather and a fun day.
Boston, Massachusetts
Cheers is a favorite stop among so many. The city has three signers of the Declaration of Independence buried there, as well as the first woman said to step off the Mayflower. The USS Constitution is much worth seeing. Boston has very tight security due to 911. (The planes used on 911 flew out of Boston.) Just be patient and prepared for security checks. Wonderful city of history, parks and such.
