Pleasant but needs work...
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: January 03, 2009
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Review SummaryParticularly liked the suite arrangement - luxurious bathroom (bathtub kind of narrow...) courteous and efficient service at all levels..SPA, SUITE,RESTAURANTS,
Loved the balcony, unfortunately could not enjoy it as four or our immediate neighbors were smokers and were outside smoking at all times...We found getting around the ship a bit confusing compared to other cruises we have taken...
All deck chairs were reserved early in the morning ( when we went at 7:30 and 8:am most choice spots had been chosen.).no people but beach towels covering all chairs...Something should definitely be done about that...and it was certainly more than 30 minutes before said chairs were occupied -
We thought that as VIP cruisers we would get better accomodation around pool and sunning spots...so that was most disappointing...Food was average..service was excellent..Entertainment was much too loud - we had to walk out and didn't go back..."Butch" our master of ceremonies, seemed to scream at us all day long...perhaps a slower and not quite so "hyper" tone of voice would have been more soothing...The shore arrangements were efficient and pleasant...the weather, thankfully, was wonderful..wish we could have enjoyed our balcony more...as we seemed to be upwind of every smoker around us...
