7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 17, 2007
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 11 years ago
The ship was nice but cleanliness could be improved substantially. The process for getting guests on and off the ship has much to be desired. The kids councelors were wonderful. There are cabins under the Lido Deck where all dining and late night activities take place all day and night that should NOT be sold to guests with warning, We paid top dollar for our cabins and were awakened daily @ 6:00AM for the breakfast crowd and not able to go the sleep until after 1:00AM due to the Midnight buffet crowd. We went to see the Purser and she offered us ear plugs which at first I thought was just a joke, I am not talking about faint undecernable noise above us but loud, continous chair dragging scraping noise, we could hear voices through the deck. The Lido Deck is also wider than our deck so it hung over us blocking our very expensive view. I believe the Travel Agent shouild have warned us about this and we will be seeking some type of compensation,

Just stay away from the Veranda deck under the Lido deck.

Pros: Kids had the time of their lives.

Cons: We were under the Lido Deck where activities started at 6:00 AM and went on until 1:00AM every day/night. We did not sleep for 7 days and the ship was completely full so we could not get moved to another cabin. The purser offered us ear plugs.

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.
