This was our first cruise, and our last. It was our honeymoon and we wanted everything to be perfect, but the last day left such a sour taste in our mouths. When we disembarked we had to go through different immigration channels as my wife is American and I am British. I am going through some green-card processing at the moment and I always get selected for secondary immigration which can take anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. I was prepared for this, but not what happened to my wife. She got through immigration and left the cruise terminal building to wait outside for me. it was mid-day and very hot and humid - approx 85F. She texted me to check on progress and I was still in line. She was getting hot so she, and a few other people, moved into the shade by the terminal. A Carnival employee came over and told the group that they couldn't stay there, going as far as to say "you've had your cruise, now leave" For over an hour my wife had to sit in full sun with no access to water; when I finally got out she was in tears and clearly suffering from the heat. When I complained to Carnival their customer service rep gave a trite apology and said it wan't their policy to issue any kind of compensation in such cases. I asked for a copy of the policy and she refused. I asked for a transcript of our conversation, and she refused. I asked for a copy of my client incident notes, and she refused. When I escalated the call to a supervisor I advised him that I was recording the call. He said that it was against company policy to let clients record calls and if I didn't stop the recording he would terminate the call. I stopped recording but later learned that I was within my federal rights to record the conversation as long as I informed him. Strange that they are allowed to record calls but we aren't. When I asked him for a copy of Carnival's policy that states this, he refused. The cruise itself? Not that great. Too short a time on-shore; just enough time to have a quick look around, maybe an excursion, and then back on board. On a cruise lasting a week, subtracting time at sea and time spent in buses or taxis, I estimate we spent no more than 8 hours actually doing what we wanted to do, and 4 of those were at a beach club in Cozumel. We upgraded to the Steak House one night which was fine but not spectacular. We also did the Chef's Table which was entertaining but again the food wasn't worth the extra money. And don't get me started on $2.50 for a room service Coke even though we had bought the Cheers package! Cheers Package? Not worth it. I am a heavy drinker and never once reached the 15 drink daily limit. By the time you have queued to get on and off the ship and spent time in a port there aren't enough hours left to get value from the program, especially as we both had to pay for it (almost $900) and my wife didn't drink that much. A very expensive mistake compounded by terrible customer service; next year we will fly somewhere and enjoy the destination. Read Less

We've had a number of cruises on the Glory and it remains as one of my favorite ships. The comedy club is awesome when combined with the nightly entertainment. Carnival did this right. We like the smaller ships with around 2,000 people. This one holds a little over 3,000 so it was close to what my max would be. Plenty of chairs directly near the pools until about 10, then you had to go to another deck to find them. Usually it fill up faster but with a lot of ports on our cruise I think that everyone was taking it slow. We went to San Juan, St Thomas, Grand Turk and Dominican Republic. All are excellent ports, but make sure you have something booked in advance at DR. Also remember the blue chairs at Grand Turk are free (old ship chairs for Carnival), locals were trying to charge for the free chairs and got upset when we told others which ones were free. Food and crew service was excellent. We do the anytime dining, and once we find a waiter we like we stick with him/her. First one worked again this time. We hadn't been on Carnival for a while so some cutbacks were noticeable. The dinner meal went from 5 course to 3 course. Things on the menu that cost. Room service items that now cost. There are a few other ones too. Crew size is smaller, but they worked so hard and it was still excellent. Although some of them seemed to be wore out. We used to have a few drinks on a cruise usually during sea days. With the prices and all you can drink packages we usually don't have any, any more, so I can't comment on this area. The only reason I lowered the dining rating was at the buffet. The cooks for the eggs don't really know how to make a great omelet or actually do over easy eggs. I finally starting giving explicit instructions to one that didn't mind getting instructions. Most people don't notice and until you've had great omelets you wouldn't notice. But, I was a cook for about 4 years when I was a kid, so I notice and it upsets me. When the omelet is half cooked or falling apart because they didn't cook it right, I'm upset. If cooked right it'll fluff up and taste oooh so good. I still cook them at home all the time, part of me always wants to jump over the counter and give them a training session. ...Perhaps it's me as this seems to be a problem on a number of cruise ships.

My biggest disappointment was that the entire casino area (located in a main walk-through floor) allowed for smoking. As an asthmatic this was very upsetting and problematic for me. Several of the photography back drops were located in that area, and I had to walk through there to go my assigned dinner location. There was no way to avoid it. I also was not a fan of the assigned seating for dinner. It just felt antiquated and stiff. I was anticipating more late night food options, too, but there was only pizza. The sandwich shop should have been open late too - that would have been great. In the buffet area there's an upper level that I discovered on the last day had a bbq food station. I was pretty irked that I missed that for the majority of the cruise. The Guy Fieri Burger station is SO GOOD! That and the sandwich station were my go-to places for food. I enjoyed the outdoor movie theater on the deck. What an experience to watch a movie under the stars and in a jacuzzi! Also the entertainment was exceptional - and was free! Gym was well stocked and had a lovely view of the ocean (many windows). Read Less

They had a great show Amor Cubano with great Cuban music. Some from Gloria Estefan other from Celia Cruz. The show was fabulous singer and dancers were great. If you like dancing to Spanish music they had the Spanola band they had great music. Every night they played Merenque, salsa, bachata, great dancing music we loved them. We went to see them every night. They also had a great Rock n Roll show with great music...enjoyed lots. They also have a Holloween costume contest which was a lot of fun. We learned that all Carnival cruises during the month of October are decorated for Halloween and have special events. We took pictures of our Haloween costumes which was lots of fun. The formal dinners give you a chance to dress up, something I do not do back home. My waitresses for my 6 PM dinner were great, I will miss them. I am ready for my next cruise... Read Less

We went to get away and relax. The boarding process did not start until almost noon. We were on deck 7. You can tell the boat is not being maintained, it's rusting and dirty. The crew is lazy and they do as little as they can possibly get away with. Over all the quality of the food was the worst I've experienced on any ship. Our cabin was not cleaned while we were out and we had to ask for clean towels and bath soap. The fridge did not work and toilet was hard to flush. There was a odor in the hall outside our room that was nauseating. The ports have not fully recovered from the hurricane of 2017, only about half of the shops have reopened for business. Carnival seems to be having problems with these ships, Maybe it's time to think about retiring some of the older ships. Read Less

While I can venture to say that I have been on better ships, it doesn't mean that this ship didn't serve the purpose of what was needed! First and foremost, I prefer a Guys Burger Joint Burger over a regular Lido deck burger! This is included in your price which is great. Additionally, the Blue Iguana bar that serves "Chipotle Style" taco bowels and burritos are great! The Captain's Suite needs it's own review, which I will give, but for the most part I am happy with the investment we made to treat ourselves with this suite for our milestone. We are Gold members, but received a lot of Diamond and Platinum benefits as a result of the Port Side suite we stayed in! The islands were wonderful! The time of year we went and the porting times made the weather perfection to walk around and tour! I have been to San Juan, Puerto Rico a few times and really didn't think I'd appreciate any more the island had to offer and was surprised that I bypassed a BOATLOAD of fun with Senor Frogs! The ONLY thing I will say is I thought the Cruise Director wasn't as visible and a bit dry for my taste, however that is a totally subjective remark! Different Strokes for Different Folks and according to DISC Assessment, I'm an "I" personality, so Dustin needed a few more gestures, exclamation points, and overall extraness to win my affection! I didn't mind those things too much because of the nature of our trip and our desire to take in our Captain's Suite as much as possible! I didn't love the pastries or cookies, they are always seriously dry, but the other foods on the Lido and in the restaurants were amazing! Read Less

This was our 11th Cruise and couldn't have been more bored on a cruise. When out to Sea there was nothing to do. No daytime shows not that would have helped any because at night the shows were not good and the sound system was so bad it was like the speakers were blown. The food for the most part was average at best and most desserts during lunch had no flavor. Found a lot of staff not too friendly (mostly Bar people). Had major problem with loud children in our Hallway, as did other guest, They were banging on doors and calling the room over & over and when we all reported it the desk help seemed to not care and neither did security. first port, Grand Turk, there was nothing to do so stayed on ship. And glad that we did an excursions In Amber Cove because there was nothing there to do but the same shops that were in Grand Turk. Will NEVER do another Carnival Cruise again. Read Less

This Ship is old and needs to be updated, deck looks old and washed out. crew members are very nice and always looking to help. food needs to be worked on, meals were cold in the buffet area. i had an ocean view room with extremely dirty windows so i couldn't enjoy the view i paid for because the windows were so dirty. rugs in the state room was dirty. the food selection for kids is very very unhealthy. i am not a healthy freak but come on. i was on a 7+ day cruise and the only things on the kids menu were mac and cheese, hot dogs, pizza, and chicken nuggets. that is awful! the soups offered for adults were on the spicier side so i couldn't offer it to my toddler. so he ended up eating spaghetti, and rice the whole trip. fruit selection is also very poor.

I chose this cruise for 3 reasons 1. Itinerary 2. Price 3. Carnival Past Guest I wanted to give Carnival another try since I’ve been hearing wonderful things about it... And honestly this cruise did not disappoint.... the entertainment was fabulous, the food in the MDR was fantastic, all of the staff was super pleasant and it did not seem to be “fake” we had good conversations with the staff that we encountered... my room steward Leo was by far the BEST! He is absolutely a caring human being and our room was always clean with all our needs met. And on that note I’ve been on many other cruises, and I must say that never had I had the opportunity to interact with the maitre’de she was absolutely wonderful a total joy her name is Larisa... our waiter Martin and Asst. Waiter Mamerto were both super fantastic...overall a wonderful experience too bad that carnival has let go a bit on maintenance of their ships even though they are a bit old doesn’t mean that they should not keep them looking good... I was surprised to see so much rust and dirty or stained windows it made the ship look really bad I have never seen this before on Carnival’s fleet and yes the rooms are dated but at least they were clean. The menu has improved immensely as well there was a time where the food was unbearable to eat so glad that this time around all though it was “cruise food” everything we had tasted amazing! And the only other complaint is that the cabins were very warm we had 3 cabins and they were all very warm... which I noticed it was on many reviews... we complained several times they did send someone to check it and even offered a fan, which we saw them bringing it to our room but somehow never made its way to our room I believe it was given to someone who has platinum status and not us poor “gold” status passenger, but other than that we had an amazing time... the shows in the theater were fantastic... what I remembered from the golden carnival years so glad they are back Read Less

this ship was great oval.Very big from the last one i did 5 years ago i can't even remember the name.Cabin was bigger and better i've to admit(interier).We never got the dinning we requested but the open time 630-930 daily option worked great with our schedule.Please have some money coz most of the free meals that comes with your cruise sucks butt.They have plenty to do from step on...to step off. Service around the ship and anything that you might need is fast considering it's so many people on board. port service to board is around 45 minutes wait. i even don't know why they give you the option on the slot time they want you to come. no one checks that time and there is only one line for everyone and on side VIP for faster checking if you've the suits and up on the cruise.Kids friendly ship. My 8 yr old would have had a blast. he's got to come next time.Coming back,yes that's a given.getting on was okey coz everyone wanted to get on. now lets get back to prices..you'll need an extra 400-800 to spend while on cruise. just like the airlines..you pay cheaper for bags if you pay online way before getting to the airport. when you get to the cruise and find out the internet sucks,too slow,very expensive and everything is cut off completely so that you spend money. trust me. get one drink package..because that lemonade they have is the nastiest i've drunk ever in my life. $ 3.45 for 1.5 L of water bottles.how many will you need for 5-7 days depending on the length of your cruise. anything...i mean anything that you'll buy on board is added a 15% gratuity. so them small amounts add up so quick you'll be surprised. the workers work around the clock to make sure your stay is great. But what i found out there monthly salary.. i saddened me so much. 2800 people,each paying $90 for gratuity and not even half of that goes to those hard working people. while walking around the ship.look around and see how many americans work here? it's less than 5 in the whole ship. that says a lot. we spent almost 400 on food and onboard wifi. so make sure you save up on those hidden fees. carnival is on the business of profit in the name of FUN ON THE SHIP. i think they could make some of the paid things free coz $1500 for two people a'int cheap. hope this helps someone out there.

We have decided to, as our grandchildren (we have seven of them) reach age 12, take them with us on a cruise without their parents or siblings - give them something (hopefully) that they can remember. That being said, we chose the Glory because we had not been on her before and the dates, itinerary and airfare aligned with our plans. We had a direct flight that arrived around 8 am, so we retrieved our luggage and had a little breakfast at the airport - just a sandwich from Starbucks which was okay. We grabbed a taxi and headed to the port arriving around 10 am. We waited outside for 30 minutes or so and they allowed us into the air conditioning to wait to get through security. Another 30 minutes there and they opened security and we were into the terminal. We are priority, so we sat in that area and watched the completion of debarkation of the previous cruise (more on this later). Another 45 minutes and four wedding parties later, we were on our way. We love the Conquest Class ships, we don't know why other than the layout is very comfortable for us. Our connecting Oceanview rooms were ready when we embarked so we went directly to them. These were great for our party of four, and I will book this configuration in the future . We cruise with Carnival at least three times per year, so we are rarely surprised negatively or positively on what or who we encounter. It always amazes me that crew members that have provided services to us before remember us nearly immediately. I have nothing more to say other than, the service that I am accustom to was once again provided by these great people. We have done these ports just six weeks prior, so we didn't do much. In fact, we love staying on the ship when passengers are gone as it is quiet and we have opportunity too engage the crew in longer conversations about their country, family and experiences. We did purchase the Flowrider for our daughter and granddaughter and at the conclusion of 90 minutes they were both quite tired and had huge smiles on their faces - not bad entertainment for $39 each. Dining experiences were normal for us, the menus are pretty much the same everywhere and everynight as the other cruise we have been on. Now here's why this cruise received a 4 out of 5, because of one egotistical person during debarkation. As I discussed earlier during embarkation we watched people slowly moving downstairs to customs. Some utilizing the escalator some utilizing the elevator, which is okay. But, you don't get to decide - one lady barked at people and basically determined for herself how you would get downstairs. It was ridiculous and slow - no wonder our embarkation took so long to start. Now I know they are building another terminal in Miami and hopefully that improves the process. How about getting a few less barking generals that are helpful vice disrespectful. Overall great cruise with a bad last taste! Read Less

Our room toilet broke and and the toilet kept running water and took plumber 30 mins to get to the room and fix it. Cabin had toilet water on the rugs. They left it like that we called back and they show up and leave a blower in my room to dry up the rug. They also charge for wifi and you cant use it because its too slow. They charge for the waters in the rooms and charge for room service after 10pm. If you re hungry at night all you can eat is pizza. Food quality is horrible. Only thing good in ths ship is the staff who have no days off and work everyday. Read Less

sounded fun, but was crowded and a big money-grab. Buffets were always packed like a feeding trough. I left an electronic recorder behind, but realized it when I got onto shuttle and immediately filed a report (there was no way my room could have been turned over already - was off early per faster-to-fun). I knew exactly where it was left, etc, yet they were unable to find it and closed the case yesterday. There’s no way to talk to a live person either. Overall, it felt like an overpriced amusement park for adults where the ‘amusements’ were booze, photo shoots, tacky jewelry, and long lines. Even had a lip-syncing contest, which somewhat summarizes the whole experience of manufactured, plastic ‘fun’. The only good thing was the overworked service staff, who nonetheless managed to be helpful and pleasant. I will definitely never cruise Carnival again. Waste of money, to be sure. Read Less

This was my first ELITE cruise and Carnival exceeded my expectations! The casino staff (Hosts, dealers and bartenders) were just plain outstanding and my room steward Komang was the bomb. I couldn't have met better friends EVER! The balcony cabin was awesome. The ELITE gifts were so wonderful The customer service throughout the cruise from guest services to literally everyone was outstanding. I laughed so hard during this past week with my new friends and my husband, I got a ton of sun, I visited some wonderful ports and I couldn't have had a better time seriously ever. This was literally the best of 14 Carnival cruises that I have been on.... The cabin steward was always available and took care of our room morning and night. I never used the dining room because I was too busy in the casino. The buffet provided a good selection of items. I wish they had more normal soups. Sweet Potato Soup is not my thing. Thank you so much Carnival Cruise Lines for making this past week one of the best in my life! I can't wait for another one and I know I have made some lifelong friends!!! Let's go cruising!!!

Yes, it’s true and in an ironic twist, this was the first time ever, after taking thousands of trips, the FIRST TIME I BOUGHT INSURANCE! Can you believe it? I couldn’t, even though my duffel bag had my second camcorder (Sony action cam with underwater housing) and four microphones (including my Rode shotgun), headphones, not to mention my unmentionables. Today, after two-and-a-half days (disembarked Aug. 18) I came home and found my duffel bag parked next to my front door. All secured with those thick cable ties and everything intact. Bless you, Carnival Guest Services for following up on my tortured emails and postings on your Facebook page. (Not really bad, trust me.) Now that I’m in a better mood, here goes with my criticism of my cruise. As usual, Carnival delivered what they promise at a value. This was my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen Birthday Celebration. She chose to go on a cruise with her two BFFs (and her ancient old mariner dad) instead of a Sweet Sixteen party for 50 with a DJ, caterer, banquet hall, dance floor, the whole shebang. Personally I think she’s crazy, but that’s another story. Most of it is being told in the videos I’m in the middle of editing, due to be released on my YouTube channel TeachinTV. I’d been on two other ships of this class, Destiny (now Sunshine) and Victory. I like the way-out interior design and once you get used to going up to go down to eat in the aft MDR, getting around it is easy. I wish they had more obvious signs indicating which way is aft and forward, sort of like the way the fish swim in Norwegian’s ships’ carpets.

I wish they had more obvious signs indicating which way is aft and forward, sort of like the way the fish swim in Norwegian’s ships’ carpets. Cabin: Was terrific, actually we had two of them, interior, forward (near the bow) separated by a stewards’ closet. Up on the Lido, it was near enough to things vertically. On the other hand, I am absolutely sure that one of the reasons that I didn’t put on ANY weight on this 7-night cruise was because of the distance I covered going aft, for damned near EVERYTHING. I wore out the tread in my sandals. I loved the proximity to the “secret decks” that I’m SURE no one reading this knows about. Right. We had a problem with flooding in the bathroom caused by a crack in the shower pan. They fixed it by the end of day two. Other little problems: a flashing overhead light fixture, a balky bedside lamp switch that I didn’t report, but were fixed. I rigged my walls with magnets, including a couple for my electrical cord that connected to the CPAP across the room. I also brought my power strip to charge all my devices, including battery chargers galore. I liked the “new” re-design, with ample storage, brightened blue and off-white bathrooms and a decent TV. My neighbors were perfectly…neighborly. Shore Excursions: One out of three was bought through Carnival, two arranged by TripAdvisor consultants. Cozumel, we felt confident getting off of the ship and locating a beach place on our own, which we did. Ocean VIP proved to be a reasonable deal, guaranteed to get you back to the ship without forcing you to become a pier runner. (See my video! Soon come.) Unless…you take advantage of their all-inclusive beverage deal. The food was surprisingly good and plentiful. Typical offerings including a decent fish taco and guac. The beach itself is relatively narrow, sandwiched between other beachfront condo/restaurant/tourist traps. I was surprised at how these boats and jet-skis picked their way between the snorkelers. Miracle, no one got propped! Mahogany Bay, Roatan was the most fun. Another one we booked outside of the cruise line. After climbing and then riding ballistically on the back of a little pickup truck and then climbing even higher, we rode a series of like, six or seven zip-lines that encourage to scream your bloody face off, which I did. Hell of a way to descend from a jungle-covered mountaintop down to street level. It scared me witless. Seriously. After zip-lines, we went to the wildlife area where we got to play with the monkeys, hamsters and pet a three-toed sloth. (Face reminded me of Yoda.) For lunch we got ripped off at the restaurant at the zip-line place, but we let it go for six bucks. The food featured the “iguana platter” which we had to try. It tasted like…chicken with small bones. The skin was a little bit off-putting. The beer with the steamship on the label was a very tasty pilsner. On the way to the pier they stopped at a hilltop “shopping center” (row of market stalls) with a wonderful view of the ships. The girls and I had a great time all in all on that day. Belize made me wonder why I got off the ship. Of course we booked the cave and tubing tour through Carnival—and freakin’ missed it! They did put my girls onto another excursion that put them on a boat, then on a beach. And I got a semi-refund. They had a great time although complained about overpaying for scanty chicken and rice. As for me, I booked the Rum Distillery and City Tour. What a fool. It was a total scam; I should have figured it was, after all, Belize. Impossible to shoot video from a moving school bus on THOSE barely paved roads with sleeping policemen every fifty yards or so. The best place to grab photos, the main church, was closed, off-limits. Their colonial architecture is interesting but hardly distinctive. It’s hodgepodge, some of it is well-kept, some of it is rundown beyond belief. The town itself lacks character and a true center. The shopping area where the tenders unload is completely artificial. The highlight of the city tour was the drive-in cemetery. Then came the rum distillery visit, which promised “A FREE SAMPLE.” The museum was small, lots of small stuff like bottles, wood tools and broken glass, mainly photos enlarged. Boring. No real “treasures,” not much to see. Then behind the plate glass wall you get to watch the ladies slap labels on bottles while some guys in the back stand around with clipboards and some others pour stuff in a hopper. By the time I was ready for my “FREE SAMPLE” I needed a stiff shot of rum. Instead, my “FREE SAMPLE” was fruit juice with a drop of rum. It was so bad my tongue and taste buds revolted, I put the full cup down and bought a bottle of water--I needed to wash out my mouth. The entire “presentation” was a prolonged sales pitch for their rum. I found a guy outside selling these outrageously delicious fresh-roasted locally picked cashews and I gorged myself on them. It made my day. George Town, Grand Cayman is a lovely place to park your money, and visit it once a year. If you’re a diver, you’re in heaven. If you’re not, you’re in Boredom Borough. I advise that once you’ve gone to Stingray City, Turtle Kraals (used to be known as…), Hell and back, you’ve done it all. Notable for gracious and polite hospitality in clean, featureless places. The cuisine is…the usual island stuff, nothing distinctive as found in Haiti, Martinique, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica but borrows from all of them. Seven Mile Beach isn’t even seven miles. Typical Caribbean exaggeration, but it is a pretty beach. Nice if you can afford it. Entertainment: Of course, to a professional curmudgeon such as myself, I found the MOST entertainment was people-watching. I loved the elderly couple with the lady in the wheelchair who dressed in alike tropical gear; I loved all of the groups celebrating reunions, weddings, wakes, you name it; I loved the barflies smoking their brains out in the casino; the guy shaking his cocktail contest entry poolside; the older couple playing the Marriage Game… I could continue, but onto the PROFESSIONALS. To my mind, Carnival has settled into a formula that is all about reducing costs. How? They hire second-rate comedians, no one breaking new territory, sticking to throwing in the “F” word often enough to be “funny.” Sebastian Whatisname was completely forgettable. At least he didn’t rip off George Carlin, which probably would have helped his act. Another way they scrimp is in the music: they hire solo acts that are accompanied by their electronic gear. It’s expensive to pay bands! That’s another reason why you’re hearing recorded music in the “really big shows” in the theater. Another way they save money is in set design, construction and stagehands. They throw a few sticks and pipes together, call it a set and wheel it around the stage. The main “set” is provided by a giant rear-projection screen. The dancing is more gymnastics and cheerleading, although the vocal delivery by the singer/dancers was was pretty good. I loved the way they all presented their version of Motown, without one black performer. The piano guy singer was adequate in the piano bar, delivering dependable covers of Elton John, Barry Manilow and Billy Joel. The rock band poolside did a decent job delivering dependable covers of Aerosmith, The Police, Van Halen. The Caribbean guy on steel drum delivered dependable covers of Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley and Harry Belafonte. The girl guitar players singers delivered dependable covers of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Joan Baez, kd laing. The best music came from the jazz band, complete with horn section and a real live drummer! Caught their act in the atrium bar. Damn good version of Coltrane! I have to give credit where it’s due: that adorable Cruise Director Julie OOPS, I mean Brittney put on a helluva show! Without revealing one square inch of skin (other than lower legs) she projected her personality without forcing it, with a vocal delivery that is smooth, professionally perky coupled with a set of facial expressions that are totally practiced, with her lips outlined in bright red, clown-like. She was GREAT! Service: Once again, the “Jack Factor” played well. That’s what I call being recognized and called by my name by crew/staff/officers/masseuses, named after my friend Jack who ONLY sails on Carnival because he loves hearing his name spoken aloud. From Santiago the waiter, a smart guy with a quick wit; from A-a-RON, the Maitre D (Aaron) in the Golden Restaurant who handled my problem with my original table assignment with aplomb; Larisa who welcomed me personally to the Platinum Restaurant warmly each subsequent evening; last to Gemma, our cabin stewardess, who adopted ALL of us—as my “next ex-wife.” (I hope she read that and laughed out loud.) She dubbed my daughter and cohorts as her “Little Angels” and took care of them, and saw that my ice bucket was always full and equipped with clean glasses. To drink out of, not to see through. Teen Club: It was policed by Carnival Security, which I can tell you for certain. For a moment they prevented me from entering it to check on my daughter and her friends. They kept their their eyes on me as I walked around the place with my hands in my pockets, trying to discern their faces in the romantic, dark light. Teens were dancing on the floor, some wherever they were, drinking countless virgin pina coladas and acting very sophisticated. I loved it, but was asked to leave them to their fun. Activities: As a videographer, I’m not a participant, I’m a witness. I loved watching the video I shot of that “Love and Marriage Game” thing they have; saw people going crazy shaking their cocktail creations at the poolside contest; watched a mile-long conga line snake its way around the ship at the late-night deck party; I watched a not very hairy guy win the “Hairy Chest” contest; of course I signed up to sing karaoke until this older guy got up and killed his version of some country song. That guy could freakin’ sing, damn if I was going to follow THAT guy. Dining: I’ve become accustomed to the ways that Carnival is producing more with less. Anything more costs. I coughed up for two meals for four at the Emerald Room Steakhouse. I coughed up for the Seafood Shack. I don’t stand in line for food EVER, but I did wait for a couple of minutes behind two other people at Guy’s Burger Joint. I completely missed out at the Deli. Too damned busy! I missed out on the tacos for lunch, but I did have a burrito for breakfast. Forget the buffet now at this point. They have completely shifted their focus away from variety to producing a few staples. The fact is that they refuse to feature the best damned food produced in that galley is the INDIAN FOOD! Their way of saving costs is to siphon away people who LOVE a variety of cuisines toward the Mexican place and the burger joint, both of which produce satisfying food at low cost. Meanwhile they’ve upped their game in the MDR by slimming down the choices and producing higher quality food with better, more creative recipes and presentations. I did see the requisite carving station at the buffet. I loved the lobster salad, but didn’t like the way they make it look like more by placing it carefully on a shallow trench in the roll. In general, the entrees were good to excellent (braised beef short ribs). The side dishes were mediocre (mashed potatoes?) to good (ratatouille). The steaks in the MDR (striploin) were every bit as good as the fatty, sinewy steaks (Cowboy, NY Strip) served in the Steakhouse. Lobster is my favorite thing, prefer it broiled which was fine. As far as my inner foodie’s opinion is concerned, the one thing that ALL Carnival ships do well is chocolate. They start by purchasing a high-quality European chocolate that is the foundation for EVERY scrumptious dessert they produce, with a couple of exceptions. WAY better than NCL or RCCL's chocolate desserts with a discernible depth of flavor. I’m not going to review individual dishes here. Too long to go into. Watch my video, coming soon. As I said to our dining companions, an older quartet NOT my 16 year olds, who watched me leave piles of leftovers on plates in front of me, horrified: "I’m sorry I’m not an eater, I’m a taster." (You don’t have to clean your plate. Your leftovers are processed onboard into fish food. I’m doing my part to help the fish live well.) Read Less

The Good Embarkation & debarkation were smooth and efficient in Miami, and perhaps as quick as we’ve seen it. The cabin (Grand Suite 7315) was clean, and the stewards attentive without being intrusive. Our evening waiter staff were friendly and prompt most nights (the first night dragged a bit), even while having to deal with some difficult guests (see The Awful below). We had many nice conversations with a variety of Carnival employees from buffet waiters and other service staff to performers, fun ambassadors, and an HR manager. Very good experiences at the ports, with San Juan, St Thomas, and Amber Cove in excellent shape despite last year’s hurricanes (Grand Turk is still in rough condition across much of the island). Especially in St Thomas and St John, locals we encountered were grateful for the cruise ships bringing guests, given that the resort hotels will be offline for another year or more. Food was better than expected at both the evening dinner and at the Lido buffet, and not at all unpleasant. Overall, the Carnival staff seemed to be on their game the whole trip with some minor exceptions you might honestly experience anywhere. Camp Ocean kept the children very entertained, though it is a bit smaller on Glory than the larger or more recently renovated ships. Two very serious medical emergencies, one requiring the ship to backtrack 3 hours to Amber Cover, were handled professionally and with enough information given to guests as it related to our debarkation day instructions, which were updated the last morning efficiently as we came into port 3 hours late. The Meh Glory is definitely showing her age, which is well-worn, but not broken-down. Many exterior steps leading off the Lido deck are starting to delaminate due to rust, and there are many dings, scratches, and dents on wall surfaces in hallways, restaurants, and other public spaces. Even our suite had some superficial damage indicative of a life well-lived. Some areas seemed to be in better shape than others, as if the Glory is receiving periodic interior repairs here and there, but the ship does feel a bit dated in some places and in need of a serious refresh in the near future. From an entertainment standpoint, the cruise director, Brittney, was a bit two-dimensional, almost as if she were reading from a script (not a lot of spontaneity and off-the-cuff humor that other directors can have), but she was pleasant. Evening shows in the Amber Lounge were also fine, but they were stock Carnival productions seen across the fleet for the past couple of years and in need of a little refresh. For the first several days, a variety of up-sell service providers were really pushing their sales packages aggressively, but that seems to be the nature of cruising these days anywhere you go. And for whatever reason, there was a consistent discrepancy on the printed Fun Times for movies and a few other events. The Awful If you look at the key cards of guests, you’ll see blue ones for first time cruisers, red for those with several trips under their belts, and then going on up into the gold, platinum and diamond realms. This cruise had a large contingent of first time cruisers with blue cards, often in large family clans (one over 60 people strong) that behaved in a rude, impatient, and at times ugly manner that dominated the atmosphere of the ship most nights. Typical behavior included yelling and screaming down hallways well into the night, discourteous interactions with some of the Carnival staff (who went over and beyond with their own patience), and vocal dissatisfaction expressed when an unrealistic request couldn’t be accommodated (yes, one family made quite a scene when waiters couldn’t put tables together for all 40 members of the group in the Platinum restaurant). Other incidents observed during the trips include several fights amongst large groups of tween-aged children in the hot tubs, food thrown on the hallway floors (including someone eating chicken wings and discarding the bones on the carpet as they walked Hansel & Gretel style), the central staircase coated with popcorn and other foods between two decks one evening, and discarding of trash on floors rather than being left on tables to be collected. Drunkenness on the Lido was in full force the first day, where one first time cruiser vomited in the pool profusely, causing it to be drained and cleaned over the first 24 hours of the trip. At times, it was difficult to walk between decks as large cadres of tweens and young teenagers squatted on main staircases. Large families also brought their grudges from home onboard, and there were numerous yelling matches between members who probably don't normally get along in the first place. As one Carnival staffer carefully articulated to us towards the end the cruise, “I’ve never seen the ship quite this loud before.” However, these terrible cruisers were also not likely to be up prior to 11am, so during at-sea days the ship was fairly quiet in the mornings, and by and large they did not disembark at ports of call. We experienced a similar situation on the Carnival Sunshine in March, and several other cruisers we spoke to who had previously cruised exclusively with Carnival for many, many previous trips observed that behavior has steadily gotten worse over the past two years, particularly on the older, smaller ships. Anecdotally, the fun, party atmosphere Carnival promotes seems to be sliding towards something uglier and more classless. The Verdict Overall, the Glory and her staff can offer an enjoyable experience for cruisers, but there is nothing they can do with a ship dominated by rude, impatient, and obnoxious guests. We found the ship to be serviceable, if you don’t mind a little wear and tear, and the Carnival staff overall did a fine job. If you can schedule a cruise when these out of control families and their children are back in school, the Glory may be less obnoxious and have more of the fun, party atmosphere Carnival advertises and that many cruisers want to experience.

Given the limited selection at the time of my booking, I chose Carnival Glory because it has water slides (my kids definitely want them) and the price was within my budget. The moment I boarded the ship, I know I got what I paid for and regretted that I didn't book my trip sooner so that I could have more options. 1. Ship Layout is poorly designed. - My first impression was the public areas are crowded. Given the capacity of the ship, the hallways should have been made wider. On one occasion, someone even fell off the stairs because the small lobby outside a restaurant was too crowded and the person had to stand at the stairs. - The decor is old-fashioned, like from the 80's. The ship shows its age with wear and tear in places. Possibly, poor daily maintenance is to be blamed. - What frustrated us more was the floor to floor access. On certain levels, there was no through access from one end to the other, meaning you need to go up one or two levels, go to the other end, and then come down. It was a pain especially in the first two days. 2. Cabin is adequately spacious but the bathroom is a bit disgusting. - We had an oceanview room and the size was decent, yet the furniture showed its age. - What disappointed me the most was there was an odor from the toilet, which smelled like pee. I had the janitor clean the toilet a couple times the first day and he also cleaned it everyday. The odor never went away. I believe it was because the flushing system is meant to be water-efficient such that it primarily relies on sucking the waste from the bottom; as a result, the wall of the toilet bowl was barely flushed. 3. Dining at the dining hall was good, with many options to choose from each day. Our experience with the buffet was just so-so. - They assigned you to a specific table in a specific restaurant for the entire cruise, which was both good and bad. It's good that your server knows your preference, e.g., we prefer water w/o ice and we had water w/o ice every time without having to tell the server again. It's bad if you don't like the location of your table. By the way, anytime dining does not mean it is open to anyone anytime during the time frame; it's only for those who selected anytime dining. - The menu in the dining hall offered many appetizers and some items are uncommon elsewhere, which we enjoyed. - The freshness of food in the dining hall can be improved. There is a difference between fresh steak and frozen steak. I understand this may be hard to address for a 7-day cruise where you can't get fresh food from the port everyday, but at a minimum, the salad should not be that stale. - The food in the buffet was generic, so not much to write about, except one thing. On more than one occasion, I found small flies hovering over the green salad and the fruit salad. - The wait staff was friendly and attentive. They remembered our names. Would I go back to Carnival Glory? I don't think so, at least not until they remodel the ship. Read Less

OK so this was our 2nd time on Glory. We chose to go again because we were traveling with a.family of 10 and wanted to be on a ship with a familiar layout. We had multiple state rooms both interior and balcony. This was a 7day eastern carribean cruise out of.miami fl. Ship: Typical old school carnival decor. Ship is easy to get around. Activities were great. Nightlife was fun. The Spanish band was the highlight. Since there is only 2 pools (one for adults only) it gets fairly packed. They did add a.little water splash area for kids which they enjoyed. We had both interior and balcany cabins which were pretty standard. Food: The buffet for lunch and dinner was "ehh". Breakfast was better. We ended up eating at the dining hall for dinner and sticking to guys burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Room service food was good. Kids: Camps were great. Kids enjoyed it. Only.negative there weren't many changing tables.around the ship. Our month old niece had to.be changed on chairs or.laps. Islands: We stopped at Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, St. Thomas and Grand Turks. All had typical shopping and drinking nearby. Grand turk and.DR had the beach right off the boat. PR ia about a 10 min taxi ride.st. Thomas we went to.meagans bay which was beautiful. I'd say overall it was a great trip for the money. Average ship, great activities, OK food, and good service.

This was a good, solid cruise experience. Getting on and off the ship was well orchestrated. Our cabin was clean and the steward was very attentive. The food was good with many options each night. The cabin location was excellent! Being on the back of the ship allowed for wonderful views. We took an excursion, Sharks, Rays, Barrier Reef Snorkel & Island Escape, with Exotic Tours in Belize. This was booked through Carnival. The excursion really should have been cancelled due to the very strong current that day. The snorkeling was impossible and the conditions were not safe. I love to snorkel, but this day was not a good day to do it. The time in Caye Caulker was lovely and the boat ride to and from the snorkel site was enjoyable. We booked other excursions through independent services and taxis once we were onshore at the different ports. We would highly recommend Bryan Williams Tours in Roatan, Honduras. We met him outside the compound gate of Mahogany Bay. He and his cousin, Kymane, drove us around the island all day. It was so interesting to see something other than the Mahogany Bay area that Carnival provides. Bryan took us to West Bay where we snorkeled right off the beach! He was very prompt and reliable. My sister and I felt well taken care of throughout the day. He was knowledgable and responsive to our questions about his home. Bryan provided a day that we will always remember! Read Less

This is our first cruise so we don’t have any point of reference. We really did enjoyed it and looking forward to another cruise next year. I find their staff friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We purchased their most expensive wifi plan and still could not connect to anything. It was a waste of money so we do not recommened this. We couldnt even load united.com to checkin for our flight. We had to ask a family member to check us in. Conclusion: Waste of money We purchased Faster to the fun program. At first we were having a great time skipping lines during checkin but all these changed. It was pretty much useless during island tour. We only used it for Grand Cayman tender. Getting back to the ship would mean long lines even if you paid already. At least open a priority line! For Guest Services, we were ignored at one point and the agent decided to help a non-faster to the fun person instead of helping us first even though we were on the line earlier. Conclusion: Waste of money We left our wallets, ipads and wedding rings inside the vault that you can find in your room. We neglected to lock the vault assuming it was safe since we are the only ones and the housekeeping team who have access to our room. The theft took $200 in our wallet but left my expensive ring and ipad untouched - sign of being a professional theft! Sure, we left the vault unlock but how did the third party entered our room? Glory lacks certain security level that you expect. A thirf person could have entered when the housekeepers left our room with the door open or one of their associates stole our money. No one would know as they do not offer finger printing analysis for the wallet & no security camera installed on the hallways! It would have been easy if we have a video to watch - another person entering our room, = third party theft. No other person entered our room = one of carnival’s associates. To make the matter worse, during the cabin search (which we didn’t mind) the VP of security calculated the approximate money we lost by substracting our pocket money - expenses. At his calculations, the missing money is $188, he was trying to manipulate my husband to write that the approximate lost amount was $188 and not $200. Good thing I was there and I told my husband not to write this as we firmly believe and certain we lost $200. It didn’t added up as we were uncertain of our total pocket money prior withdrawing for our carnival glory money. Conclusion: Rooms that are supposed to be safe are not safe. Carnival glory lacks security. Put your money & valuables inside your dirty laundry cause no one wants to touch a dirty and soiled panties! Seminars: Sure they are educational but mostly about sales talk Conclusion: You’d spend money on consultations Food: So, so. Lido buffet opens at different times of the day - sometimes at 7am when we have to leave the ship at 7:30am Conclusion: Friendly stafff, decent and clean food & room Staff: Friendly & professional. I love them! Cabin: Inside Stateroom MEH - you only get a soap & not very secured Read Less

We chose Carnival because we were paying for our family to take this vacation. We have been on other Carnival ships but mainly stay with Royal Caribbean. Checking in was awesome. Not much of a wait but that is were it stopped. When we booked we called Carnival to book everything. We were told the ship was going to be redone in May/June and the person we spoke with sent me via email a new layout of the cabins and we specifically selected our cabins so we were close to our grandkids. Well we get on the ship and our cabins were on opposite sides of the ship. They even split our cabins for dinner and we were not in the same restaurants. Our cabin steward and the entire staff were awesome. Bad side was two nights we were all bitten and had red marks and extreme itching. They did have us lol at the same table by the second night so thank you to the staff. Sameer the magician was awesome. What a wonderful surprise for the kids and us. We booked four excursions one for each port. When we arrived in grand Cayman and arrived at our pick up point for the excursion we were told that our 3 year old was to going and could not go. Even the Shore Excursion staff were saying that was not true but when they went back with us they were told their policy changed. So she went and found us anothe similar excursion which ended up being so Much better then what we booked. Their entire staff were so helpful when we got back on board and made sure that all of our remaining excursions were perfect. Not impressed with dinner. Food was average and small portions. Staff was friendly and always smiling. Just too few and dinner was very very long. We were seated at 6pm and still ended up being one of the last tables served. Most evenings we were still finishing dessert while all the other tables had already been reset for the next seatingbat 8pm. Also bar service was extremely slow. Not due to the personnel but due to not having nearly enough staff for a fully booked ship. Overall ship was way under staffed, long lines everywhere but staff that was there was very friendly and helpful. Hats off to the staff. Read Less

The employees we encountered on this trip were excellent. The recently refitted ship was gorgeous and the new restaurants were amazing. One breakfast burrito from the Blue Iguana will make you come back for more. The destinations we went to were gorgeous! Just note that Grand Turk really doesn’t have much besides a lighthouse outside of the little Carnival built town. My advice is go to Cockburn Town and find the little beach nearby. No one went there and it was gorgeous. San Juan was excellent. Make sure you check out the forts in Old San Juan and then head to New San Juan and go to Candado beach. The Virgin Islands were absolutely gorgeous! Our favorite spot. Get in touch with Brenda and Franko’s fun tours and do not book an excursion through the ship. They are a husband and wife who grew up on the islands there and were absolutely amazing with our family. The Dominican Republic was equally beautiful and the exchange rate was great! Make sure you check out the Macorix Rum Factory tour. Only $4 USD per adult and you get ample tastings of their rum. The store has full size 750ml bottles around $10 USD! We traveled with two children and a total family of four. Would definitely do it again. The value is really there over other cruise lines. Read Less

We just got off the Glory and I wanted to mention a few things. We had a good time and the trip was fun as a whole. I will be looking into a new cruise line for our next trip as this was our 9th with Carnival. First and foremost for me was that the A/C in our balcony stateroom 7221 didn’t work. A technician came but he could only adjust it by 2* cooler. Secondly was the food. The Lido buffets were not very good and the desserts were disappointing. The dining room food was slightly better but still average overall. Room service just could not get our orders right either! The ship was very crowded with long lines to do everything. Our stateroom steward had a hard time getting our room cleaned up and each time we returned from dinner, a shore excursion etc. it was hit or miss wether our room was cleaned. Finally- the Stingray experience in Grand Cayman was a waste of money. There were 3 Carnival shops in port that day, with 60 people packed on a boat for a 40 minute ride to the sand bar where you got 2 seconds with a stingray while a crew member took a picture for $40 per person!

First of all these are not cheap cruises and you work hard for your money so you should expect a great experience. Pros- beautiful places to see!! Western Caribbean was amazing. We had out of this world service from Trinidad and Prathtz in the platinum dining room. Aaron the was also on point. Great service. There was surprisingly always a very good amount of dining tables and beach chairs available on any given day. Totally eliminates the need to have to get up early to look for space. Cons- terrible service in the gold dining room the first 2 nights. They ignored our table completely and food was cold when it arrived. We got moved to the platinum room after that. Problem with plumbing gave off a horrible smell in our room and we had a flood of water in front of our door. Took a couple of days to fix this. We have been on 4 previous carnival cruises and we had great customer service. We were definitely disappointed that this ship is not as friendly and most staff don’t go out of their way. Will probably not do another carnival cruise. Read Less
