7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 27, 2016
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 7275
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Boarding a ship in Miami is definitely long and laborious.  However, having a priority embarkation makes it much easier and a more enjoyable experience.  The Embarkation and Debarkation experience was great.  The music throughout the ship was extremely disappointing to put it mildly.  The shows were a total disappointment and their dancers and singers were the worst.  If you like to gamble, but cannot handle the smoke, there is not much else going on in the evening other than on the nights they have  comedy shows, which were enjoyable.  I am not certain if I would try another Carnival cruise, unless it is the Breeze or possibly the new Vista.

I would have preferred a cabin a bit further away from the main elevators since the horrible music from the 3rd deck was heard in our cabin on the 7th deck.

Ship Tip

Eating on the Lido deck is not enjoyable; the Mexican Cantina had good fresh shrimp tacos. If you enjoy greasy hamburgers and fries, Guy's burgers is the place to go. The Pizza is great but there is always a huge wait since they never anticipate the crowds. I would prefer the dining room.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

If you like the beach, this is the place but we stayed on the ship since we had bad weather.

Beautiful. We went to Maya Key via a 15 minute boat ride. Again, it was wonderful but too short of an excursion.

We did a private beach with snorkeling and the boat picked us up at the ship since we were not docked. The only negative is that the excursion was way too short. They could have extended it for at least another hour or two

Even with the weather not being great, the shopping is awesome!
