Carnival Glory at Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal

After the beach sojurn, we headed for Port Canaveral. By 11:30 a.m. we had arrived at the Port Canaveral cruise ship terminal. It's very easy to access. The area around the port is relatively unedeveloped, so the higway leads one right to the appropriate company terminal. Long term parking was $84 for the week.

Embarkation was smooth. Except, don't forget the Bahamas immigration card! I think everyone had one except us by the time they reached the check-in desk. We needed to fill out four, but that went quickly, too. We were on the ship by 12:30 and headed for the Lido Deck and lunch. Cabins were ready by 2:00 p.m. Muster Drill was called at 4:00 p.m. and Carnival Glory sailed at 4:30 sharp.

As we sailed down the channel, we passed cargo operations, the gambling ship docks, and the watersdie restaurant where we had dined the previous evening. Finally, we passed Cocoa Beach and the breakwater. In the distance was the Kennedy Space Center. Sunbathers gathered on shore to wave and pleasure craft followed us out. The departure of a cruise ship is an event hereabouts.

We had late seating for dinner, at 8:00 p.m. Our waiters were Nicoleta and Vladan, both from Romania. Nicoleta told us she has worked for Carnival for five years. After dinner the opening show in the Amber Palace theatre gave us a peview of the week's entertainmenr: the Glory's dancers, a male and a female vocalist, and a stand-up comedian.
