Our 8th Carnival Cruise

Sail Date: August 26, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

A few years ago we tried Royal C and the ship was fantastic but food and service was subpar to Carnival. The Glory is a new ship (3 years) but layout is not as good as "Destiny" class.

I think it may be time for Carnival to retire the "Joe Farcus" design aka: Las Vegas 80's style and enter the 21st century. If you combine Carnival's fun atmosphere and food to Royal Carib's ship design you have a slam dunk.

Carnival's upscale Steakhouse/Supper Club was worth every dime and was one of the best meals I have ever had, anywhere. I would strongly recommend you add this to your itinerary.

Pros: Food, Spa and Club

Cons: Layout of Ship

Ship Quality
See above, but for a 110,000 ton ship the layout and design was subpar. Destiny class although smaller was better. Ship rocked alot even in calm water.
Cabin / Stateroom
Well designed, we had 4 in the room and enough space to have a drink before dinner
Comedians were good, other shows average. Pool activities were typical Carnival but fun
Food and Dining

Dinners were a real treat, see above about Supper Club.

Lunch was OK but design of buffets led to "Traffic Jams"
Service and Staff
Dinner and bar service was on the mark. Stateroom service was not as good as previous Carnival ships.
Nassau, Bahamas
The whole itinerary changed due to a Hurricane. St. Thomas was OK (Go to Sapphire beach as opposed to the tourist trap of Magen's Bay. St. Martin was GREAT! Go to the St. Bart's side of the island and visit the beach resorts there.
