MyGranddaughter and My first cruise ever

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


We very much enjoyed my Carnival Glory Cruise,

The process was very easy for a first timer :) . The personnal were polite, postive and cheerful. I would say they were professional in this way as i am sure this is expected of them.

There was more to do then we could plan to do and animinaties we both enjoy. Also great land ecursions to join in.

to suggest a line to someone asking for their first time, i would definitly advise Carnival. thank you for a absulute wonderful time.

Overall very enjoyable cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


I'm a frequent cruiser, so I sort of know what to expect. Ports of call were breathtaking, speaking of Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.. Take the historical tours for these two. Food was very good. Entertainment was hot. hot, hot.  Big ups to Mary Ann. Amazing voice. She had Whitney Houston down pat. Cruise director, doctor E. was hilarious. He brought the energy. I could probably nitpick, but everybody likes what they like, given their situation. I would recommend this ship & cruise. As a matter of fact, I'd take this one again.

A Fine Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


For a quick hop on cruise for seven days it was a fine experince. The room was nice with a balcony and our steward was fabulous..The food was okay.example:cherry pie was geletin with cherries. And i did not care for breakfast and lunch as a buffet. To many people waiting in line..I did like that they had separate stations for sandwiches and pizza and eggs/omletes.The ship was very clean and friendly.

Nothing Great.......

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Jan 26, 2014


Processing  to get on and off the boat was fast and efficient. The food in the dining room was horrible. The steak house was the best meal on the ship (highly recommend). Whole experience was nothing to write home about. Ship was clean. staff were great ,except those photo people. Why do they setup were everyone has to pass by them every night on the way to dinner. I can only get so many pictures taken before I feel like taking a bat and knocking them out. It is the biggest pain on the ship. My suggestion is setup on the photo deck and if I want a picture taken I will come see you. You dont have to ask me every ten feet if I want my photo taken. The two stars come from bad food in the dining hall and those dam photo people.

I lost my virginity

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Jan 26, 2014


(Virginity for cruising that is). My only experience of cruising was limited to The Big Red Boat by Disney 20 years ago.  We returned full of exhaust emulsions and full of cruising.

 This was on my bucket list to try again, and boy am I glad I did.  The 7 night cruise aboard Carnival Glory was a wonderful experience.  I boarded with the expectation that I would be bored to madness.  Boy, was I wrong.  Everyday was a new adventure, new people to meet, new culinary treats and new findings on board.  You don't have to worry about being alone, being to heavy, old or young.  You don't have to worry about anything unless you just want to.  I was a little hesitant about going with Carnival with their recent bad luck, but I was genuinely impressed with the cleanliness, the staff and the options on board.

i went by myself so when I didn't care for jewelry and tourist shopping on the stops, I returned to the ship and enjoyed its amenities.  The islands and waters were beautiful, but the ship itself was my attraction.  I live on the beach so while I appreciate the beach, I'm not compelled to partake and again, back to the wonderful ship.  

The evening entertainment, movies and skies were an added bonus.  The singing announcements were a little annoying that need to be toned down a bit, but that's a small distraction.  As simple as it may be, do not miss Guys Burgers.  It's the best one I've ever eaten, bar none.  Good job Carnival Glory.  You made a repeat customer out of me.  I want to try another one NOW!

My first cruise ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Jan 26, 2014


I would recommend this cruise on the carnival Glory to who ever decides to go on a cruise or are just thinking about it, they were the most friendliest people i ever met and the price was reasonable too! There was something to do 24/7 and the food was outstanding. I loved the fact that it was family oreinted. I would do this again in a heart beat.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Jan 12, 2014


Carnival cruise lines exceeded all of my excpectations with a wide variety of things to do and something fun all the time, and the service I recieved while on board was phenomenal - I felt like a princess the whole time, and this is while traveling with 4 kids! I can't wait to take another carnival cruise, I've found my favorite way to travel! Thank you carnival staff for the best vacation I've ever had!

Carnival glory

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Dec 29, 2013


We thought the ship was clean. Staff was very good. We sailed a brand new ship last year so it was definitely a little older ship this time. That being said the housekeeping staff was superior. We found the dining room staff to be very friendly but nowhere near the service we received on dream. Only 2 pools and 1 is adult so that was a bummer. And the number of hottubs was slim. We would go new again if we cruised again.

Very nice ship! Excellent food. Nice cabins. Entertainment better than most.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


So good to have Adult only areas. Easy to get on and off ship when in ports.  Easy to get around.  Great to have "anytime dining"!  This was the first time I was on a Carnival ship and I was impressed.  However, it was Spring Break and there were lots of families and children, which was why I was glad to have Adult Only areas.  It was also a diverse group of class of people.  (I had a wonderful experience on the Dawn Princess & Celebrity Summit, which were mostly adults and a nice class of people.) Dinner menus changed each night.  I would recommend this ship.  The Western Caribbean is not as pretty as the Eastern though.  My favorite stops were Cozumel and Mohogany Bay Roatan.  Belize is yucky and needs to have a port instead of having to tender over.  Go visit Caye Caulker if you want to see something pretty.  However, the water taxi is an hour ride from Belize.  Do not buy a round trip ticket. Belize Water Taxi Terminal did not tell us that the taxi coming back would not get back to port to get our ship's tender in time.  There was 2 hr time difference from ship time and Belize time.  Bummer.  Time in this port was not long enough.  However, I don't know who in their right mind would vist the city.  Most people went on excursions out in the water.

Winter Getaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


Having been on 50+ cruises over the past 40 years, the cruise we just completed on the Glory rated good enough that we would do it again.  However, the anytime dining service was somewhat slower than anticipated, but the food that was available was excellent and very well presented.  The selections were not as extensive as Princess or Holland America, but was very tasty and we had no complaints regarding quality, etc.  Cabin was always taken care of in a timely manner.  However, even though we traveled in a suite, there were absolutely NO amenities in the bathroom except a small tube of toothpaste!   This is no comparison to the other suites we have traveled in.  When we inquired about this with the cabin steward, we were told we could buy whatever we needed in the gift shop.  Also, tips were suggested for room service delivery, even though the cruise line was already deducting quite a large amount for tips for the waiters.  It seemed like this cruise was "nickle and dimeing" for services that we had not noticed on the other cruise lines.

 

The most outrageous event was the Captain's night, which took place in the casino.  We traditionally have been introduced to the captain at a party in one of the entertainment rooms, with cocktails and hors d'oeuvers.  On this evening, the Captain and the ships officers were lined up at the bar, and were pimping drinks at a $1 discount.  How embarassing for these men who have worked hard to gain a position, only to be lined up like a rogues gallery with people wandering around them, not knowing what was really going on.   Doesn't Carnivale have a hostess, or someone who could have orgainized the event so the the passengers could be introducted properly, rather than than just wandering around trying to figure out who was who.  I don't think the evening was a financial success, as I didn't notice a rush to the bar for the $1 off drinks.

Enjoyed our cruise!

Ship: Carnival Glory | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


We enjoyed our cruise very much, the food & the customer service is stellar! We were a little worried about going to Honduras but will be returning there for another vacation! my only complaints are the night club decor is tacky & childlike-needs to be updated for middle age adults & that there was no deck outside that went all around the ship. The only deck was in the rear of the boat level 9 and up. The shows & the comedians were so very funny. We didn't care for the ventriliquist though. We love that there is food 24/7 because we have a different time zone & get hungry at different times.
