Ship: Carnival Glory

Traveled As: Couple

The Carnival Glory is an older ship, but very clean. All customer services were excellent and made the cruise worry free. I learned from this cruise bigger isn't always better. The quality of service really made the difference for our experience.

Food and Dining

Whether it's buffet, sitdown or the Emerald Room it's all quite good!

This ship is great for families with kids, good shows, and plenty of activities for nearly everyone. I would have liked to seen more activities on cooking, wine and seminars on culture of the destination instead of shopping.

Children's Programs

We booked late, so our choices were limited. The room was nice and mostly comfortable. My only real complaint is the tv was old and channel selection was poor.

Went snorkeling, we had a good time. The locals are quite friendly, maybe because the Mexican Marines guarded port? Cuban cigars are pricey, too. Great place for families with kids. Big pools and beaches.

We visited the Mayan ruins of Tulum, this was a great excursion. After the tour, be prepared to visit their beach, it's the best we visited on the cruise!

Snorkel tour with Hugh Parkey's Dive Connection was the most professional snorkel tour for the cruise. The safety divers did a great job of helping weak swimmers. Check out the Arts and Crafts shop at the port. If you dont have a large group of people, don't bother walking outside the port wall, apparently it can get sporty if you're on your own.

Went snorkeling on a catamaran, very unprofessional. Their equipment broken or frayed. The guides were late so we got lost trying to them, as a result. Generally, their attitudes came across as if they had something better to do. No safety divers. We'll do a better job of choosing a dive tour next time, lesson learned. The snorkel site was very nice with plenty of fish and coral.

Pros: Very good service

Cons: Ship security people scanning items acting unprofessional

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!
