Our 8th Carnival Cruise
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: August 26, 2006
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review SummaryA 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.
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
