No Adults Only Deck On Glory?

Just called Carnival, they said they haven't updated this ship yet to include the Adults only deck area. Has anyone just gotten off Glory know if they have any area without kids around the pools or upper decks? Yes, I know, family cruise line... I am trying to go when kids are in school, so maybe it won't be that bad.

Haven't been on the Glory yet. Might try the Glory roll call boards though.

Didn't they have an Fdeck on the glory? They changed the signs on most ships to read adults only on the upper decks.

 

Only the Fantasy class ships were being updated with the new adult areas.

 

:cool:

It used to have an F-deck. Dunno about the signage though.

 

And they are, a very small adult area. Is quiet though.

As long as they bring drinks to you up there it is perfect...LOL:D

 

Actually it's down there, the deck below lido, where the kiddie pool used to be. Two hot tubs and some padded deck longers. Had some new age music playing. It was nice, but crowded.

I was on the Glory in January. There was an adults only area but it certainly was not a place to go topless as the area was in full view of alot of children. They did not bring drinks up there when I was on the deck but it was a nice quite place for adults to relax. The area overlooked the Lido Deck pool area on one side and the basketball court on the other side. Just on the otherside of the basketball court but on the same level as the adults deck was putt putt so the children there could easily see the adult deck. I wanted to go topless ... finally had the nerve ... but just not enough privacy on this ship. You will however love the Glory!

I disagree. Unless they changed the deck since January when we were on there the deck above the volleyball court was still very secluded with the privacy tarp all along the railing. Although it no longer says adults only there was hardy ever anyone up there when we used it. It is not around the funnel (that has the mini golf around it). Access it from the stairwell on the volleyball court deck.

Sounds good. Glad for even a little space for us adults. I'm not feelin the love from a lot of these cruise ships anymore for people that cruise without their kids. These ships are huge, plenty of room for everyone, so asking for a small amount of space without kids shouldn't be asking for much. Perfect would be an adult only dinner time, bars where kids were not allowed, and just one hot tub, and maybe dreaming big, a pool just for the adults. Oh well, I can dream.

Sorry, the tarp has been pulled from all of the ships.

Or be willing to pay for it.

They did away with the topless deck, topless now is only in your room so basically even if it says adults only- kids still go up there. For now its mostly for people to have more quiet time, though personally I can find that anywhere on a large cruiseship. Hasn't been a problem to date. :)

I do, when I book my cruise. :cool:

 

I will bet our table of six last cruise (3 couples sans kids) spent 3 to 4 times what a family of six spent on that ship. The drinks, casino, excursions, etc. Cruise lines need to remember that. I think Carnival is turning around, at least a little. The customer service rep I spoke to did say they had plans to make adult only area's on all of their newer ships to be completed by late 2008.

I was on the Glory in Feb. and didnt notice any adults only ...kids were all around..including the hot tubs..lots of people complaing about that...I too realize that this is a family line but....

 

I really dont understand the parents who let there kids run wild...either on the pool decks or buffet lines....it is not "cute" to have your little one picking out his own food in line...not only spilling and touching everything as well as running around the decks and jumping into the hot tubs...

 

when my kids where younger there use to be an age limit on the hot tubs...

 

I dont feel that hot tubs are very healthy for little ones to be in anyways...

 

I am sure I will get "slammed" for my opinion, but again i am entitled.....we have alllways traveld with our kids and we NEVER allowed them to behave widly.....

 

 

its not just cruises that i am talking about its everywhere...

 

parents seem to be much more lax in keeping there kids inline.....

 

again just my own thoughts....as I said have 3 DS's of my own who have travleled with us since they were babies....

 

i dont blame the cruise line or the hotels........just the parents who do not TRY to make their kids behave....

We were there January 19-26th, 2008. Same location as you are describing but there was no privacy tarp. The week before there was a large group (several hundred) swingers sailing on the Glory ... could be they put the tarp back up that week. :D

We have 4 kids and we try really hard to not bother other people, when we were on the Miracle they had an adults only pool and hot tub on the back of the ship. A little frustrating because the waterslide was right above it. We are respectful parents and when other adults come into the hot tub we reduce the number of kids in there or have them get out all together.

Sorry, but this is the issue. You know it is an adults only pool, but have your kids in there anyway. While it is great that you say you "reduce" the number of kids if an adult comes along... many just take a look and see, that once again, there are kids in the adults pool/hot tub.

 

Adults only seems to mean something totally different to someone that has children with them. I don't get it. I guess we can always go to the kiddie pool.
