Carnival Glory

January 2016 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Eastern

THE CRUISE

Carnival is NOT my favorite cruise line however; the price was favorable and the itinerary is what drew us back. The wait staff at the Platinum 6pm dining- Patricia and Wira were outstanding, the room steward always said our names when greeting us at any time of the day and our actual room location was perfect. The food served was subpar and needed seasoning, the buffet was simply gross, and the only thing worthy of an 'A' rating was the Guys Burgers, the pizza and taco bar.

 

We loved all of our stops. Martinique was challenging due to the language barrier/currency conversion, but otherwise it was amazing.

 

We loved that this was an older crowd and not many children were onboard. Responsible drinkers vs. spring breakers was a plus. Also loved the purchase water option.

 

Only suggestion I might make is ---The Internet package should be offered PER ROOM vs. Per person. AND, the photos--they waste a lot of photo paper. There has got to be a more eco friendly way to do this? Seems super wasteful.

kellyhewitt's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - only tip here is---THE AIRPORT is super clean so don't be scared. And please fly JetBlue because they are the best!!
Antigua, West Indies - Stingray City!! and rum punch ....shop and buy booze, venture outside of the duty free and find a small local place to eat. Everyone was super friendly.
Martinique - LEARN FRENCH and bring a conversion book to know Euro/US dollar or whatever currency you use. If you travel outside of the port they will not do this for you and are quite disenchanted with Americans. Also, there are a few 'tops' optional beaches :)
Grand Turk Island - DO NOT CHOOSE coast to coast safari...just play in the water and shop
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) - only reason for this rating was because there was not much to do. The shore excursions were canceled due to weather and that also meant nothing was really open because employees could not get to the small island due to high seas.
Miami, Florida - where we returned the rental car/Avis Budget in downtown---tooooooo congested and chaotic.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - TIP: if you are going to book a room--splurge and get an ocean suite and book MID ship as its easy access to all floors in either direction. Choose anytime dining so you do not have to rush for early seating or miss out on things if you have late seating.
