Overall Good Cruise

Sail Date: May 30, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Carnival Glory is clean, newer, and has roomy staterooms. The Red Sail Restaurant was a zoo (crowds and lines always). It was not laid out well at all. Did not have a lot of room to be in the pool. Lots of kids everywhere. The embarkation and debarkation went smoothly. We brought our own luggage off, since we had an early flight, and I would recommend to do that if possible. The service and entertainment in the Golden Dining Room was excellent, from our headwaiter, his assistant and the wine steward. Service at the open seating lunch in Platinum Dining Room was slow and we didn't go back. The ship is laid out with the Golden Dining Room in the middle, and you can only get to it from going certain ways on certain floors, which got to be inconvenient. The lounges were spotless and service good in them. You could tell which ones would be freezing and which ones were more comfortable. The entertainment was average in the Amber Palace. The comedian was great, however.

Pros: Balcony Stateroom--roomy, clean and great location on ship; Elmer, our server in Golden Dining Room

Cons: Crowds everywhere, constant photo shooting, food quality has dropped

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Love Jamaica. Dunn's River Falls is a must-see, but the whole island is lush and beautiful if you get to take an island tour. Watch out for the drug sellers though.
Grand Turk Island
Waste of time unless you want to spend all day in Margaritaville.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman needs tendering to get to port and there were 5 ships in port the day we were there. It took us four hours to get off our ship which was a ridiculous waste of time.
Don't Miss: Stingrays--book your own tour through Trip Advisor versus Carnival to get in smaller group
