The Glory does Western and Eastern Caribbean, alternating, not Southern. We did the Western on Carnival's Holiday many years ago, and will do the Eastern on the Glory next March, so can't give you a direct comparson yet. But from reviews of the ports on the western I have read, like Belize or Progresso, I came to believe that the Eastern is better because of St Thomas and St Martaan. Everybody seems to love those 2 islands. Nassau, been there twice, some people don't care for it too much. Just go to the hotel Atlantis, which is the most awsome place in the world, at least for me. I recommend the Eastern.
