Great experience on the Carnival Glory

Sail Date: April 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The staff is top notch. It made for a wonderful experience. If dining in the Platinum Restaurant, ask to be seated in Mario and Juan's section if possible. Wee Jimmy did a fine job as Cruise Director. The casino dealers are friendly (as expected), especially Aleksandra who really made losing money at Three Card Poker less painful. And the staff went out of their way to remember everyone's name from the very first day.

Pros: the entire staff was friendly, the stewards and dining staff remembered our names from the first day

Cons: the layout on decks 3 and 4 made for a frustrating time in the beginning

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
This ship is a little bigger than the Miracle, but the Miracle had a better deck layout. Unfortunately, on the Glory, the galley and the Golden Restaurant are amidship on decks 3 and 4 so you have to go up to the Promenade Deck (5) to get across and back down. But don't let that deter you. It was fun to explore the ship and once you familiarize yourself with the deck plan, getting around is a piece of cake.
Food and Dining
Don't forget to spoil yourself at the restaurant. The dining experience is wonderful. The staff is very friendly and takes care of you. And if you're feeling bold, ask for two entrees. If you feel guilty later, you can always visit the onboard gym!
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms on Carnival ships tend to be bigger than their counterparts. The Ocean View cabins are perfect and value priced. But if you can afford a suite, get one. You'll thank yourself later.
Service and Staff
Top notch. They are hard working and very courteous. Plus they smile all the time.
No matter if you are in port or at sea, you never run out of things to do. The shows are great and the night life is always entertaining. Lounge all day if you want and never have to pick the same spot twice. Why not, you earned it.
