I really got a chance to enjoy the boat on this cruise! The cruise director Eric, was great, the main dining room food seemed to improve from the Carnival Valor food I had in 2013. I do wish my servers were more personable, but we did have a much bigger table this year. 

 

Salsa & Margaritas Excursion was great, and worth the money, glad we did it. I loved all the ports of call, but Belize is my favorite.  The shows on the ship were great and the DJ during sea days and at the club, DJ Darren A+. I'm happy you're finally having a DJ play real Caribbean music while cruising the caribbean and not just top 100 pop.

 

This cruise had TONS of kids on it, but it was also Easter/Spring Break, besides too much running they werent a nuisance.

The time of my life

The favorite part of my cruise was the night life, clubing, comedy, meeting new people and getting wasted. The highlight though was the reason why i went, which was to celebrate my cousin's 50th birthday. It was a blast!!! wish i could repeat right nowHappy

The destinations where fantastic.  The PG comedy shows were not PG.  Same comedians does both PG & R and sometimes they slip up.  There was so much to do on the ship in the evenings it was hard to pick what to do.

Western Carribean

Besides the power outage at the last port stop, this has been the best family vacation so far! We had great port stops to get off of the ship to explore, so the mediocre entertainment wasn't a problem for us. The cruise director, Eric, actually sucked...not sure where they found him. I guess they don't need anyone to work too hard since it's the Carribean...

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.

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!!!

To inform families next time about construction it was obviously known months prior there would be construction going on while cruising . Our kids were pretty disappointed about not having the water slides 🙁On top of all the racket with drilling while trying to relax. Should of had more music played by Djs on pool deck to drown the sound out

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.

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.

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.
