Review summary

Overall, it was a good cruise. Because of the exceptional cruise we had last year, we were a little disappointed, especially in the food. We went to the dining room one night but weren't really impressed. Noticed that most of the foods were also offered in the dining area on the Lido deck. We did, however, really enjoy the sea day brunch. It was very good!

No matter when you get on the ship, none of the rooms are ready until 1:30

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We didn't think the food was as good as on the Dream - especially the desserts. Also some of the workers in Guy's Burgers and the Mexican section were not especially nice. The ice cream wasn't as creamy and good as on the Dream and a couple of stations were closed almost all of the time. However, that being said, the deli was wonderful!! Great ham & cheese, Cubans, Reubens and hot dogs.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Went to shows - the gender competition, hairy chest contest, ice sculptor, and lip sync contest. Enjoyed!

Loved Dustin, the cruise director! He was a bundle of energy. Didn't especially care for the bands and solos that played.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Michael and helper (I believe Kristin) were exceptional. They were very helpful and anticipated our every need. Couldn't ask for better service from either of them!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Could definitely tell that the Glory is an older ship. Lots of repairs going on especially to the deck.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was a good size - Had everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable.

We did not book excursions - However, we took the train to sightsee and walked to Hemingway's home. Enjoyed all of it.

Nassau, Bahamas

Did not do an excursion. Visited the straw market then got a taxi to Atlantis. Afterward, we took a taxi to see the island. Enjoyed it.

Paid for FTTF - was a little disappointed that people who carried their own luggage got to debark before those who paid to debark first.
