1st Cruise - It was great!
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryWe decided to freestyle and not book any shore excursions. But we did get to do some sightseeing in Puerto Rico by taking the free tram that winds its way around San Juan. We hopped a bus in St Thomas to the top of the mountain. Stayed close to port in Nassau because of bad knees and did some shopping at the straw market and watched the water activities from shore. In Grand Turk, did a little shopping and took in the fabulous beach.
Food and Dining
Oh, Man! We love fine dining, and we were not disappointed with the selections and the portions. I can't say that the staff dance party was in keeping with the fine dining atmosphere, but it was fun and lively. We really enjoyed the overall experience.
The Grand Buffet
If you go away hungry, it's your own fault. That's how my Granny would put it whenever anyone came to visit. She always had food prepared. The selection was wonderful, and you just couldn't complain about the view out the windows.
We decided to take an evening nap and experience the ship after midnight. I love thin crust pizza and had my fill by 2 AM.. Excellent job turning out the pies.
Azure Lido Pool
It was good. Sometimes a bit busy, and quite deep, but no complaints
Very peaceful and relaxing. Although, There were some clam shell hogs and that's just not right. If you're not going to be there, don't be saving a place for you to return an hour later. Chances are, that if a chair or lounge is open, allowing for someone else to enjoy some quiet time, they just may be done with it by the time you get around to stopping by and picking up your things.
Didn't watch much and always seemed to a bit too crowded for our taste, but maybe next time there will be movies we can enjoy.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Make the ship your destination, that way if you have to miss a port for whatever reason, you can shrug your shoulders and find something to do on board.
