July 2009 Western Caribbean- Carn. Glory

Sail Date: July 11, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: Very good service

Cons: Ship security people scanning items acting unprofessional

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
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.
Service and Staff
The staff were always friendly and very helpful.
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.
Ship Quality
Everything was clean and polished with friendly staff everywhere.
Food and Dining
Whether it's buffet, sitdown or the Emerald Room it's all quite good!
Children's Programs
Plenty of kids stuff here
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
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.
Cozumel, Mexico
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!
Belize City, Belize
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.
Nassau, Bahamas
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.
