I am so excited to share about my cruise with Carnival and my experience over the next few blog posts. I had only ever been on one other cruise when I was younger with a different cruise line. This experience was totally different for a lot of different reasons, but it was one hundred percent more enjoyable.
I want to take this post to tell you about the ship and trip I picked out. I decided to go with the 7 day Western Caribbean Cruise from Miami, FL. The stops included: Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay, Belize, and Cozumel.
I went with this cruise because it wasn't too much and it also wasn't too little at the same time. If you are looking into going on a cruise and you need that little "push" that it's okay to pick a longer cruise, I'm here to tell you that it really is worth it. We never felt like we were running around trying to get everything done and exhausting ourselves out. If I could give you any advice when picking a cruise, it would be to just pick the cruise with more days to go out and enjoy yourselves. You won't regret it. I can promise you that. We had 4 full days in such wonderful spots to go out and explore!
All in all, the Glory fits 2,980 guest passengers. There's so much to do on each level and I loved how easy it was to navigate my way around. It really didn't take long at all. We picked out a room with a Balcony (of course) and I would not suggest you not to do the same. It was so amazing being able to go enjoy the night sea breeze and star gaze in the middle of the morning. And it was even more incredible being able to enjoy our first morning coffee on the balcony quiet and peaceful avoiding all the morning chaos of everyone getting ready to leave the ship. Spend that little extra money and get a room with a view. I guarantee it will make your experience so much better. We couldn't get over how cute our room was. Also the cleaners were WAY too kind and amazing to us. Can't say enough good things about Carnival's hospitality.
I was really really pleased with the food options onboard the Glory. HELLO!!! They had Guy's Burger Joint by Guy Fieri on board! We also had an amazing dinner every night that I have nothing but amazing things to say as well. If you have the pleasure of getting your hands on the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake, you know exactly where I am talking about. I never had the patience to slow down eating it to take a picture, but goodness. Will forever be one of my favorite dessert items I have ever had. Truly.
I could have not been more satisfied with our ship and cruising with Carnival!
