Review summary

We had a great trip even though we had 2 Med-flights come pickup people with medical emergencies and a “man overboard” that was a false alarm. We never got off schedule and we had a blast! Much needed relaxation!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Buffet was pretty bland and boring but the Platinum Dining room breakfast was amazing! The chia seed pudding was fabulous! We had My Time Dining in the Golden Restaurant and it was pretty amazing! Overall, we loved the food. Drinks are expensive so we brought a 12 pack of diet dr peppers each so we cut down a lot on drink costs.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
So many activities onboard! Bingo was so much fun even though I didn’t win anything.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The love & marriage show was so funny! The lip sync show was pretty funny as well.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had great service 99.9% of our vacation. The only time we had an issue was breakfast one morning..our server acted like he was being bothered to take our order. We mentioned it to guest services and were given drink tickets for 6 drinks (up to $10) for free. We had no other issues all cruise long.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The Glory is an older ship but we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. It could use more hot tubs though.

Book shore excursions early. Go to the Serenity Deck for rest and relaxation with no one under the age of 21.

We went on the See & Sea excursion. It included a nature walk, glass bottom boat tour, and amazing views! Great excursion that doesn’t break the bank!

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We didn’t do an excursion in Key West because my best friend of elementary school lives there..so we met up, had lunch and she showed us around. I recommend going to Willie T’s bar & grill!

New Orleans, Louisiana

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Smooth and easy. We got off fairly quickly because we carried our own luggage.
