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.

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.

All of the ports of call were fabulous. My favorite was Grand Turk with the beach right there near the ship and the shopping. I would definitely do this one again!!

Carnival Glory Cruise

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!

All the staff were pleasant and smiling.  I really felt they all ENJOYED their job.  The food was great in both the dining room and the buffet.  I wish there were more things to do in the earlier hours of the morning -- some of us rise with the sun and I wasn't fond of waiting another two hours or more before the dining room was open.  I could order room service any time, so that was not a problem.  I know there were a few other early risers -- I would see them walking on the decks, too.  However, that certainly did not detract from the great time we had

Perfect sized Ship

The Glory is large enough to have all the perks you want on a cruise ship, yet small enough that you don't feel like calling a taxi to get from one end to the other.  I've been on this ship 4 times and have never been disappointed.  This cruise I especially liked the lobby band and the comedians (always a favorite).  They also had a couple shows in the theater that were outstanding.

Great Ports, Great Entertainment

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We selected Carnival because of the Ports:  Amber Cove, St Thomas, San Juan, and Grand Turks. The price was right for the amount of ports. We were pleasantly surprised with the on-ship entertainment. The evening shows were very well done.

Belize, roatan, cozumel, we missed grand cayman due to weather.  We were ok with the fact that the staff chose safety over the port. The staff were great, shows were fun, kids camps were awesome.  We had a great time.

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.
