Carnival Glory is a great ship, clean and wonderful deck areas for sun bathing away from the main pool area for older adults. We have cruised about 10 times and loved the Grand Cayman, Mahaugonay Bay and Cozumel. Belize is not worth going ashore unless you have an excursion. We held stingrays in Grand Cayman, went snorkeling on Jolly Roger Catamarn and on a "submarine" in Cozumel along with land visits to a Mayan temple, the first Catholic Church, chocolate making and tasted tequila. All were terrific excursions. We were disappointed with the lack of shows in the theater. The three productions were very well done with outstanding background lighting/computer driven images, very talented dancers and singing. But there were not any other productions. In the past there was some sort of jugglers, magicians, ventriloquist, etc. yea, there was the usual Newly Wed game and lots of bingo. One night there was show and no comedy!! We enjoyed some of the comedians but why nothing one night. It is also obvious they cut back on the food and dining room services. No strawberries...even when they had a chocolate dipping. Very little watermelon. Some nights the waiters served rolls and other nights they were on the table, the same with water. They do not pull chairs out or put napkins on your lap. Lots of little things that I got used to on my previous cruises. No midnight buffet with ice carvings or carved fruits and vegetables which used to be awesome. I cruised with Carnival in October and had all of the above things that were missing on this cruise. Disappointed! The dining room servers and cabin stewards were awesome...very friendly, asking if everything was okay, bringing additional food, etc.

Go to all of the shows in the theater...the three shows out of seven nights were good. Not enough entertainment or activities during the day.
