Welcome to my “LIVE” Cruise Report from Carnival Glory. . . I am in Newark International Airport area for a Pre Cruise stay at the Country Inn and Suites.
This is a very nice hotel, with great service (and comfortable beds) I stay here often before I cruise from Cape Liberty or Manhattan.
I will be boarding Carnival Glory tomorrow morning, for a 5 Night itinerary to Canada. We will be visiting the ports of Saint John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I went on the same cruise in the Summer of 2008 on Carnival Victory. I never thought that a Cruise to Canada would be something that I would like to do, but I am here to tell you that I loved the cruise to Canada. My "LIVE" from Carnival Victory report can be viewed on Cruise Critic HERE. I loved it so much that I made a Video that can be seen HERE.
I can’t wait to board Carnival Glory tomorrow.
Carnival Glory was recently dry docked in the Bahamas, and was received a multimillion dollar upgrade that included the New Carnival Seaside Theatre, 18 new Balconies, new Adults only (Serenity) area, new Circle C Facility, and new Dining enhancements.
It will be fun to try to see all of the areas that have been upgraded, and I will be taking photos of as many of them as I can.
Those who have “sailed” with me before know that my reports are a little different from other reports you may have viewed on Cruise Critic. My goal is to bring as much of the experience as I can to all Cruise Critic members. . . I will be posting daily comments about the ship, activities, public area, and ports. . .along with daily photos (usually about 12-15 per day) as long as my wireless connection can hold out. I was happy to hear that Bow to Stern Wi-FI was added during the recent dry dock.
This will be my 10th Cruise with CCL, and it seems that I am now a Platinum Member, and will be looking forward see what the differences are from my previous CCL Cruises.
Mrs Radio was unable to cruise with me this time, but my Brother was nice enough to join me for this Cruise, and this will be his first time to Canada. . .
His wife insisted that he brings back some authentic Canadian Maple Syrup!
I will be boarding Carnival Glory tomorrow morning at about 11AM at the Manhattan Cruise Pier (12th Ave and W 55th St.)
The traffic should not be too bad, as I will have missed the rush hour traffic. I hope to be posting once I arrive in my cabin (hopefully) between 1 and 2PM.
Sit back and relax. . . I am hoping for an enjoyable, relaxing, and fun cruise!
Thanks for tuning in!
