Caribbean Playground: One Week at Sea on the Carnival Glory

Last season’s holidays were a blur, with plenty of 15-hour days spent sewing and shipping travel scarves to areas near and far. So in January, we took our third Carnival cruise.

The cruise provided a nice refresher and reprieve from the New England winter. Our itinerary on the Carnival Glory was mix of new and familiar locales; but we ultimately chose it because it visited Roatan, Honduras, which had been on our radar for many years.

I’m happy to say Roatan was worth the wait. While we did hit some unexpectedly bad weather on our cruise, we had a blast visiting the different countries—Belize, Mexico, Honduras, and Grand Cayman—and enjoyed the many amenities the ship had to offer on sea days. The Carnival Glory is little smaller than the Carnival Dream, the last ship we experienced. However, we found the Blue Iguana Cantina and the Alchemy Bar (think: handcrafted cocktails) to be nice additions to the onboard smorgasbord of food, bars, and entertainment.

Remember that New England winter I mentioned earlier? Well in fact, our winter was actually pretty mild. However, our spring has been a beast. I need sunshine and warmth, and I need them now! But at least I can bast in Beth’s photos from our cruise—I swear they’re better than a dose of Vitamin D.

So if you find yourself patiently waiting for warmer days too, then I’ve got your cure. These are our favorite images from our 2016 Carnival cruise—I hope they warm you to the core too.
