Looks like we'll be "going Live" right about the same time... I'll be heading to Miami to sail the new NCL Encore on the 30th, and boarding on the 1st... 

 

We need to coordinate better. I’m booked the last week of feb the next two years and the last week of aug next year.

Thank you for another fabulous live review! I can’t wait until your next cruise, as I’m on the Magic in April! I hope to find some of your places when I’m in New Orleans in February before I board the Glory. 😎🛳🌴🏖🍸🍷🍹🍺

Thanks for another great "live" review! Looking forward to the next one! Oh, if you are worried about that $100 chip, you can mail it to me and I'll use it in two weeks on the Sunrise for you. 😁

Thanks for another great review. I enjoyed all the pictures and your activities in New Orleans were a real bonus!

Thanks for taking us along and sharing your trip with us. It's a while before our trip on the Conquest at the end of February.

I believe they went to sugar straws for frozen drinks and either paper or no straws for everything else. We’ll see on Sunday but I’m bringing my own.

I have decided the straw deal is just a Conspiracy to add one more thing to pack and cut cruise-line costs.

Another great review! Thanks for your help with Club O2. I'll be on the lookout for your next review in November. The husband is wondering if the Glory had the pour your own beer and if it was a good price.

And I only noticed the music one other night. About the same deal.

If anyone needs the kids club stuff..someone posted it on the Fb group from like a couple weeks before my cruise so I can get that if you need it.

@Saint Greg just curious.....when you went on your submarine excursion, how many plastic straws did you observe down there? 🤔🤔🤔

Great live blog of the Glory.  I will be on her on May 10th.  Staying in New Orleans the day before, so I will try to visit some of the places mentioned in your blog.  Have a great one.

No trash. It was very clean.

NFL yes. I commish two dynasty leagues. I actually started playing when it was done through mail.

 

 

When did you do the draft ? I was wondering if you did it while on board.

We started the Monday before. Our drafts have no time limits which allows for more pick trading. So we actually finished up when I was in New Orleans. But those last few rounds are pretty much kickers and defense.

Thanks for a very informative review with some good humor. Will be sailing Glory in January 2020. First cruise on Carnival. We are typically Royal cruisers. But this cruise is part of a Dairy Queen convention so Carnival it is. Looking forward to the Alchemy bar, I may need to purchase a drink package.

Awesome as always - and what a fast disembarkation! I wonder if you would ever consider an interview-type cruise review? I know that Doug Parker on the Cruise Radio podcast frequently invites people to contact him for their take on a particular cruise. Oh, and glad to see that Harry had a good cruise, too! You got some great pics of him.

USB lamps. They all that. You can charge your devices while the lights on boyyy.

An obscure reference I wouldn't be surprised if nobody got. I'm setting this to start at the 2 minute mark. If it doesn't start at the 2 minute mark, skip to the 2 minute mark.

I don’t think I mentioned it last night but I was successful at Nordstrom Rack. I got this charger for $15. It’s pretty close to mine. Mine has the built in cable is the only thing...which I prefer.

From my experience, I don’t recommend using this charger with an iPhone.

 

I used it in New Orleans and my phone started acting weird. It wouldn’t charge above 86%. I’d power it off and back on, it would be at 93%.

 

I just got this phone four months ago so there shouldn’t be any battery issues yet. I stopped using that charger and the issue cleared up. 

 

It was challenging making it through an entire cruise taking pictures of everything I did without a mobile charger. 

 

Little things that probably went unnoticed like no pictures of the CC M&G...phone was on the charger.

 

I can recommend the one I’ve used on the three previous cruise reviews which is this one.

Were you using Tapatalk or the browser during this cruise? I have been switching back and forth between firefox and chrome, with decent results... 

 

For the past couple of cruises, I've been switching back and forth between two phones... That way you can always have one "at the ready"... I just picked up a Google Pixel 3 XL as my primary, and will carry my Pixel II XL as my secondary... (The pixel II XL still has better battery life than the new one. And the camera is almost as good...)

You can’t use Tapatalk with CC anymore can you? After CC cut off Tapatalk I was still using Tapatalk to host some non-cruise pictures for the review. But they changed it where they no longer give you the link. This time I used post image. I put over 150 images on post image precruise. On the cruise and when I had just a lot of pictures to upload at once (like the WWII museum) I used the CC browser.

 

As for phones I used an iPhone XS Max this cruise. My three prior reviews were with an iPhone 8 Plus.
