Had a wonderful time! The ship was going into dry dock the day we returned. I had read where people felt the ship was dirty and worn looking. I thought it was one of the nicest ships we had been on. This was my 9th cruise with Carnival. The only two things that could improve my trip was that there was only one electrical outlet in our room, it took a little effort to remember to charge cell phones and Nooks timely. The second thing that I think needs improvement is the Spa is evidently located under the kids playground or a hallway where there a lot of running. Didn't  make for the most relaxing massage! The crew were fabulous. Our Cabin Steward Richard was wonderful and couldn't have been any more attentive! Absolutely loved the Glory!!!

Good cruise, but it was a construction project

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

really enjoyed the itinerary and the people working the cruise.  BUT Carnival had the Glory torn apart. No water slide or upper pool, that whole portion of the ship was off limits.  Lots of construction noise during the day and they brought us to port early so they could load more construction supplies. Felt like I was used to help cover the cost of construction.  If the ship isn't in the condition it was sold to us in we should at least be informed. Poor decision by Carnival I believe.

The cruise was spectacular even considering remodeling was going on while we were on board but it did not interfere with anything we wanted to do.  Entertainment was great.  The cruise director was friendly, very energetic and seemed to love his job.

The 4 port itinerary was fantastic! Pricing was great. Food was on par with other Carnival cruises that I've been on (14), so no complaints there. Our room steward Jenny was absolutely amazing and one of the best I've ever had. 

The Glory needed some updates and actually headed to dry dock right after debarkation...but no one knew that the slide and a pool would be out of commission, that the other pools would be tinged green and have rust or that the due to the work being done there would be construction on the deck making noise and taking up deck space.  It was also disappointing that they opted to show nothing but PG 13 or older movies at the Dive In Theater all week, even in the 7:30 time slot until the very last night when they showed 2 animated kids movies back to back.  It just seemed like poor planning and lack of consideration for the kids. I completely understand PG 13 and Rich rated movies later, and even on some nights in the early slot but to go 6 nights without a kids movies doesn't make sense and doesn't track with what we've experienced on past cruises.

I'm hoping that it's only because of the dry dock situation which had staff taking off as we docked that caused the most disorganized priority debarkation process, but the entertainment staff (minus the cruise director who was off) didn't communicate with each other and didn't communicate with the guests.  

 

They also seemed to have issues with even the simple VIFP program as 3 of the 4 of us (2 rooms) didn't get our bottle of water (ever) and they failed to remove the laundry charge.  The first time I was on the Glory 2 years ago it was fantastic, so I'm chalking this up to an anomaly and counting on Carnival to get it back together in the future.

Glory cruise ship dump

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The favorite part was looking forward to the next morning at a different port.  The cruise ship was the dumps. on the Lido deck they had the water slide close / roped off for repairs.  The maintenance was done on the ship (welding, restructure / building, fixing out of date equipment.  This ship "Glory" should have been docked and not in use to cruise passenger's.  I had an balcony room and the smell from the welding was awful every morning.

 

Glory is a old out dated ship to cruise for seven days.

Worst trip of my life! Bought 3 ocean cabins for family to celebrate wife's

birthday.  Carnival decided to start the demolition process the first day of cruise,

shut down waterslide, pool, sports deck. Jammed anybody with kids into a small

deck area, where tempers were flying daily. Noise and dust covered entire

deck, where open food was being prepared.  Staff openly lied to clients regarding

their knowledge of upcoming repairs . Carnival tried to cover up jackhammer and

burning/torching nonsense by increasing the decibels of the music they pipe over

the deck which ended up being of migraine levels. Staff members let everyday

maintenance go until dry dock , rooms had left open food stuffs, sexual items,

  socks left from prior cruises. Sink in stateroom was broken when we

got on board, and was still broken the last day of cruise, as well as other maintenance items around the ship.  Broken water lines with ceilings leaking   in main corridors with buckets to catch water.

   Classic example of a corporation once they've got your money and your

stuck on their ship to absolutely stick it to you.  I feel as though I was robbed.

Not only did you people disappoint my grandchildren, you've lost me and my

family as future cruisers with carnival.  If this had been my first experience with

cruising I would never go again. Corporate greed trumps customer satisfaction

apparently with  Carnival.

Winter escape

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise fulfilled my need. It was a cruise to get some sun, get pampered, and relax, nothing else. Cruising is my regular vacation and escape, doing it twice per year. Once in the winter, for a week, looking for sun and relax. The big one in the summer, 2 weeks+, where the sites are most important. This cruise was a winter cruise. The ship was dirty, staff unprofessional, cafeteria food, and portion of the ship was under construction with its noise and smells...The ports where mostly un accessible  for people in scooter or wheelchair

The ship was clean and comfortable.  Staff were professional and friendly.  Food was better than most .  

The only complaint was the shows at night.  They were overproduced and the sound system was awful.  the volume was so high that it distorted the sound and made the show uncomfortable to sit through.  Even tho the performers were talented and hard working, the shows were disappointing.

Carnival Glory Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I enjoyed my first ever cruise.  It was everything I expected with enjoyable staff and entertainment for the most part.  I would say that the waiters, cleaners and customer service were the happiest to serve us.  The least enjoyable or happy people were the bartenders.  Some were pleased to serve but others seemed a little inconvenienced.  Even  though the drink package I had included tips, I gave a small tip with each drink and that didn't seem to make a difference.  Next time I'll leave the tips off because the service for me versus a person who didn't tip was no different.  The excursions I would not do next time.  They were over priced for the time spent doing them although the guides and drivers were awesome.  All in all the trip was great!

If you want quiet dining atmosphere when you eat at the Lido buffet, go up the stairs to the Fish and Chips restaurant which few people seem to know about.
