This was our sixth cruise, first on Carnival, and it was good. The service was suprisingly good as well as the food. Our stateroom, an interior, was good size and was always kept clean. The pools were nice, but very crowded and not as much to do onboard durning the day. It was a different story at night, bars and clubs are plentiful. The ship was like a little floating Las Vegas. The Glory was kept very clean, but the layout of the ship was terrible.

The food was good. The Red Sail restaurant was nice, but very crowded, I would suggest getting to lunch and breakfast 5-10 minutes early because lines were so long. I never had a bad meal in the Golden Restaurant and our waiter "G" and his assistant Iputu were awesome very friendly and helpful.

The ship is decorated beautifully and all the bars have a theme to theme to them and are decorated to that theme. The casino was huge and decortated nicely. Shows at night were average. I've seen better shows/entertainment on Celebrity and Royal Caribbean. The ship is very large and very crowded.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was suprisingly very good. Golden Resaurant at night was great and dining times gave a good variety from 5:45, 6:15, 8:00, 8:30. Before dessert of every meal they would play music and the lights in the dining room would flash. Everyone would get up and dance; it was fun.

Nightlife was outstanding, but durning the day was a different story. It seemed nothing was really scheduled.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ships decorated beautifully and is very clean, but the layout is horrble. The Glory is very chopped up and a lot of it is wasted space.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our two interior stateroom were the first two at the front of the ship on deck eight. It was good size and always clean. After the first couple of night we got used to the movement because they say the closer to the front and higher up you are the more movement you fee.

Pros: Ports, Food, and Bars

Cons: VERY crowded
