(They may should pay massive fees to depart late.) Weighing the risks and benefits, we booked through Carnival, had a blast, and were worry free. This made Belize far more expensive as a port, however it was probably the greatest port days we’ve ever had. Built in 2003, the two,980-passenger Carnival Glory is considered one of Carnival’s older however nicely-loved ships, and while elements of Glory present its age, refurbishments have helped maintain its attraction. The majority of dining options on Glory are bundled into the fare together with a number of the cruise line’s newer venues like Blue Iguana Cantina and Guy’s Burger Joint.
We did make an exception to our usually strict coverage of no cruise line sponsored excursions. In Belize, the ships docks fairly removed from shore, so you have to take tenders (small boats) to port, which takes thirty to forty minutes.
