  1. I really enjoyed the Glory and I'm sure you will, too!
  2. You're welcome! There weren't any USB ports. I highly recommend bringing an extension cord or a power strip with you.
  3. We found our room to be a little warm at times, but that was mostly when we had been in port all day. After the ship started to move, the room cooled down. I will always get off the ship no matter where I am. However, if I ever go back to Jamaica, it might be one of the very few places that I would book an excursion through Carnival. My safety comes first. Mom and I both think that if my dad or boyfriend had been with us, we wouldn't have had the problems that we did.
  4. There were two. The first sea day and then one of the port days. I think it was the day we were in Grand Cayman.
  5. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! KC to NOLA is probably a long haul (it's an 8 hour drive for us)...you can definitely find things to do between the two places!
  6. Maybe get on one of the buses that makes the different stops instead of a taxi? Power in numbers sort of thing. You could also see if Carnival offers excursions that take you to Doctor's Cave Beach.
  7. Thank you! I'm sure you will love the east side!
  8. It is a small world! My mom actually teaches at in Campbell, but she lives in Malden. I teach and work in Puxico!
  9. Thanks for reading! I truly did enjoy the Glory and I hope you do, as well!
  10. You're welcome! I love doing reviews because it helps me relive my cruise! I highly recommend going to the east side of Cozumel at least once. It truly is a natural beauty! Thank you for the kind words about my pictures! :)
  11. Debark Debacle We had recieved a letter letting us know that priority members should meet in the Golden dining room at 7:00 to be escorted off the ship, so we were awake a little after 5. We noticed that we weren't as close to NOLA as we thought we should be, but we shrugged it off and went to grab a quick breakfast. We were out of the room by 6:45 and made it to the dining room where mom's sail and sign card was checked to make sure she was in the right place and we settled in. A few minutes later they made an announcement that we would be at least an hour late getting back to NOLA because of heavy river traffic. Fine, but they dropped the ball on this one. They should not have waited until we were supposed to be docking to make that announcement. It's not that big of a deal, but I like to be kept informed. A lot of people were trying to wait in the dining room and the woman at the door was turning them away if they weren't supposed to be there. People were giving her tons of attitude, but she wasn't having any of it! She was (politely) telling them to kiss her butt. I loved it! Since we had such a long wait, I had time to make my way up to Lido for a quick cup of coffee and then I settled back in. When we finally made it to NOLA, it seemed to take a long time for them to let us off the ship, but mom and I were in the first 5 people off the ship and customs was a total joke. He didn't even make us slow down to look at our passports. We made our way outside where the shuttle was waiting to take us back to Fulton. Side note...the guys that work at Fulton always call me gorgeous! I know they just want tips, but being called gorgeous by some very good looking men is not a bad way to end a cruise! 😊 We were in our car and on the way back to Missouri by 9:00. People in our Facebook group waited another two hours to get off and apparently someone got arrested when we docked in NOLA, but who really knows? All in all, this was an amazing cruise...my favorite one yet! Please let me know if you have any questions!
  12. Last sea day We were up early and headed the Blue Iguana for one last yummy breakfast burrito and headed up to the Serenity Deck. We laid out for 4 or 5 house and just enjoyed enjoyed the views and relished in the fact that even though the cruise was ending, our summer was just beginning! We grabbed a quick bite for lunch and went to the Q and A Session with Dustin. I'm not sure that I believe that his stories are 100% accurate, but he was entertaining. At 5:00, mom went to the Platinum/Diamond party and I settled in with a book and a yummy drink. Mom was back in less than 30 minutes. She said the party was a joke. No one was checking the invites and that people with blue cards were coming in and getting free drinks. She told me that a couple who had been platinum for a awhile, told her to come get me. However, mom knew I was content where I was, so she had a few drinks and left. At 7:00 we went to the Lip Sync Battle. I would never go to something like this on land, but...when in Rome! After the show, we went back to the room and tackled the huge job of packing. We always end up leaving the ship looking like we have been on it for a month! 😂 Up next I will post about the debark debacle and a few last thoughts about this cruise!
