The weather was bad which was uncontrollable and we missed 2 port stops was stuck on the boat, 4 days out of  7.  I feel like carnival could have given more compensation for the inconvenience. 4 days is a long time on a boat in rough waters ,don't get me wrong they tried to have more activities to keep people entertained, but with that many people on board, it was to crowded to enjoy much. Can't bring bottled water with u, but they allow bottles of juice, didn't understand that one until i got on board and saw they charge for water. And even though you're paying 12.95 per day per person gratuity, everything you buy on board is charged a gratuity also, and then they expect more tips. Ran into some rude staff members as well as nice ones.

Carnival Glory, January 2017

Lots of things to do on board. With a family of 5 it was nice to have options. Dining in the Golden Restaurant was probably one of the most fun just because it got my whole family to sit down together and we could discuss the days activities. We tried so many different foods and with a couple of picky eaters, this was a great chance for them to try something and not feel like we wasted our money if they didn't like it. 

The ports were a nice variety. Grand Cayman was a flat island - Roatan had both rustic and tourist-y areas with varied topography. Belize is a place I would recommend booking some sort of excursion - the city is a little rough. Cozumel is Mexico and that is always a fun place!

The shows in the evening were great. 

If you are early to bed, make sure you get a room far enough away from the lobby. We heard the band playing and I have a difficult time sleeping anyway so that was a little bit of a challenge for me. 

I was a little disappointed that there wasn't any part of the ship that offered country music. They offered just about everything else - that would be a suggestion.

Remember to account for the tips and for the extra charge if you want unlimited beverages.

We swam with stingrays in Grand Cayman, zip lined in Roatan, cave tubed in Belize & swam with dolphins in Cozumel. All were fun & exciting, which made a memorable trip. Nice cabin, our fold out bed was broken upon arrival but was repaired. All the little extras cost you, so be prepared. A great time.

Great First Cruise

This was my first ever cruise and my wife and I had a great time.  The only thing that could improve was the desert and there should be a few more things for adults to do during sea days.  Overall I would rate this a 4 out of 5 and will definitely use Carnival again.

Amazing Family Cruise

Our Cruise was excellent and anjoyable. It was a first cruise for My husband and my son and they loved it. Our only concern is that carnival should include WIFI AND GRATUITY WITH THE PRICE and they should have a PET FRIENDLY CRUISE so people can take their lives as well.  Thank you to our main person Eric, entertainment director of our cruise, amazing, energetic, super, he's in the right career 👏.  What an amazing team of housekeeping, love when we wake up in the morning and they so happy and pleasant. Food was delicious and a plus because we didn't get sick from the food, Thank you to the chef for making our vacation hearthy.  Our personal chef Roney from pizza pirate great personality and always with a smile, we can't wait to eat more Pizza from him 👏😋. Another team from the restaurant Mr.  worachart AND his crew amazing service and love their dance 💃🏻. We are so happy and ready for our next cruise and become Cruise experts and masters. Thank you to carnival and to everyone who was part of our Family Vacation. Big Smile

There are too many good things about this experience to narrow it down to one favorite thing.  I loved the food, the entertainment and the service.  The only thing I did not like was Belize.  The country is dirty and the people are unfriendly.  I have taken this cruise twice and my feeling about Belize has not changed.  I don't know how difficult it would be to change ports, but it would not hurt my feelings if Belize was taken off.  I won't go there again. I would recommend this cruise to others. Big Smile

The shows are scheduled to fit better the 6pm dinner. However, we were scheduled for the 8pm dinner and the shows were either scheduled for 10pm or not scheduled. When traveling with kids it would be nice to have options that fit both schedules as well as shows that are good for kids.

The quality of the food has improved considerable.

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.
