Caribbean caravan: The new Carnival Glory

The new $500 million Carnival Glory in July inaugurated year-round service from Port Canaveral, Fla., to various ports in the Caribbean. The ship, which holds 2,974 passengers and has more than 500 cabins with oceanview balconies, breaks new ground in several ways.

Unusual for a ship’s show lounge, the Glory’s Amber Palace rises three tiers and seats 1,400.

The Emerald Room, a reservations-only dining option at extra charge, offers steaks, seafood and an intimate ambience.

For meetings, the Glory offers a faux-tusk-adorned Ivory Club, which holds up to 145 people; the Cinn-A-Bar, with curving aluminum walls (for up to 50 people); the Copper Room (up to 40), and the Crimson Club lounge (up to 30).
