April 2015 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western
This was our 4th carnival cruise. Compared to our trip on the Splendor last year this one was a total disappointment, the ship was, not our vacation. There were no extra's on this trip for sure...no chocolates on our pillows, no hair dryer in our cabin. Staff was not very sympathetic that our cabin did not have a hair dryer. apparently there was not a spare one to be found on the ship at all so one was not put in our room at all. there was no...we are sorry Mrs., can we give you....xxxxxx?? What I got was an employee telling me..."well I don't have one in my room either!!" (Hanna at guest services). We were on deck 2 and during our stay a couple rooms down from us had to be gutted and there was a terrible smell coming from those rooms. All very hush hush, nothing to let us know why or what they were doing. Mini golf course was difficult to get to...you had to go thru the basketball/volleyballs courts to access it. No late night buffet. Only pizza available late at night and ice cream. It would have been nice to have some other options. Also the buffet closed at 2 p.m. when we were in ports so when we came back for lunch all that was available was pizza and burgers, not great for 3 of our 6 member group. Compared to our other 3 Carnival cruises, this ship was very disappointing. The decor is dark and dingy We did have a fabulous time with our friends and enjoyed the excursions and the ports we explored but really did not enjoy the ship.
