Default Need help choosing cruises

My wife and I are booked on the Dream Jan 18th for my 40th birthday. I looked at the Glory on the 19th, which is my birthday, that is cheaper by $200. That $200 savings can be used to buy one of our airline tickets. We have never been on the Glory or the Dream and they are doing the same ports of call. Also, the 19th is nfl conference championship games. Will we miss the game boarding on the 19th.

Sounds like you made your choice. Be on the ship and watch the game vice not knowing where you will be in the check in process on the 19th. Is the $200 worth missing the game?

The game will be on the big screen.

I would personally make the switch for a $200 difference.

If you like the Piano Bar at all then my vote for you would be the Glory! Dave Filsinger is the PBE on the Glory then and he is FUN!

Default I love the Dream!

The Dream is a newer ship; I love the water park and the other features which make it unique. However, the Glory has added some new features which I love as well the RedFrog Rum Bar, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Alchemy Bar, EA Sports Bar, Guy Fieri's Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, and Punchliners Comedy Club & Brunch.

For a $200 difference, I would probably go on the Glory too

Are those games during the day? If so, you might miss some during the muster drill.
