Carnival Glory dry dock

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to find out for sure when the Glory goes to Drydock for its upgrades? I've seen this fall on most posts, but just recently saw posts that said late January? We go 1/3/10, so just wondering what all might be done other than the big screen.

The Glory is being replaced by the Dream out of Port Canaveral in September. So I imagine its right after that!

 

They are taking away my favorite rooms. 6E's floor to ceiling windows on the spa deck and converting them to Balcony rooms *tear*

It is called making more money. Which will cost you more? 6e Or 8 whatever.

It is ALL about the Money! Sneaky devils :D It seems as if the Glory will leave Port Canaveral and venture off to Miami..then VA, and NY.....she looks like she will be a busy ship!

 

hopefully someone else will get to enjoy these rooms!!!

Glory goes into drydock in Jan. 2010. We have a cruise booked on Glory for Oct. 31 at Port Canaveral. I was hoping to have it done before we left. They will install the Movies Under the Stars and offer an open dining option in one of the main dining rooms, another reason I wish they would have done it earlier as previously scheduled.:D

I was on her 9/08 and she is fantastic.

On the Miracle in Dec and she did not compare. You will love her drydock or not!

The Glory is a beautiful ship .... The Dream's first sailing out of its home port is Dec 2009 .. will be interesting also in Port Canaveral since Freedom of the Seas will be moving there as well ...

I was just about to book with the Glory for Jan 10 and saw that it is going into dry dock 2 after. will they be working on the ship during my cruise...any concerns before i book?

 

 

You can also book the Valor for exactly the same itinerary, but in opposite direction for the same date.

We will be on the Glory in the spring (March) right after her dry doc.

We are looking for the changes to the ship.

 

We considered to upgrade to 6E now. If they indeed upgrade our room to the

8A to see if we get it? But the fear of it being bumped to the bottom of the

ship would not be fun. As we in a upper deck now which has a nice location

so we don't want to risk it.

Here is what I found out from my Carnival Vacation Planner:

 

Renovations Completed During Drydock 2/14/10

 

 

 

  • Carnival’s Seaside Theater – addition of an outdoor poolside LED screen on Lido Deck midship.
  • Addition of Serenity “Adults-Only”
  • Circle "C" Lounge – addition of a lounge for teens (12-14) on Atlantic Deck 4 forward.
  • 18 Family staterooms on Spa Deck converted to Balcony staterooms
  • The forward dining room will be reconfigured to allow for "Your Time Dining".
  • Addition of the Mongolian Wok on the Lido (exact date of completion TBD)
  • WiFi internet access now available bow to stern

 

I am also trying to find out if they are going to be adding the flatscreen TV's to the rooms.

 

I am so happy that Serenity will be there for my trip in May. I am not a fan of kids, so this will be my escape!

If they are adding the WiFi on the ship chances are they are upgrading the TV's. They add a wireless internet router/switch to the top/back of the flat screens. So my GUESS is they do both at the same time.
