We love Cruisin'!
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review SummaryThis is our fifth cruise since December and three of the ships were Carnival. We love Carnival the best (NCL second) because the cabins are always more spacious than other ships, the shows are always super and the food incredible, not to mention the staff were just terrific! They really stand out from other cruise lines.
The Glory is a nice ship but older and needs a little TLC but it didn't bother us to that degree. We loved the Star (Alaska Cruise) and also the Inspiration is nice.
Down side of Glory is the library was incredibly small with minimum books. It also smelt of smoke and it's a none smoking area.
The Glory however has the edge on the gym (not that I used it LOL) and was the largest gym I have ever seen on a cruise ship!
All in all it was a wonderful cruise with no regrets. Our cabin stewart (Roy on the Lido deck 9) was incredible! He's the best we have ever had and if it was left to us we would promote him to captain of the ship! His service was excellent and I have never had so many folded animal towels on one ship! He provided 5 on a 7 night cruise when the standard is 2.
Nice thing about Carnival is they provide luxury bathrobes. You've never experienced a bathrobe until you have put one of these on!
Our waiter (Christopher - Golden Diningroom table 187) just knocked himself out! He was very catering to everyones needs and didn't miss a beat! I am vegetarian and a lady at the table had to have a gulten free diet so he had his hands full with us both however no one would know. Service always with a smile and his helper was equally as great!
Thank you Carnival for such a lovely cruise! We liked Grand Turk the best even though we went there in error to avoid the tropical storm. Captain was smart thinking to get us out of St. Maarten before it hit and redirected the ship to a different port of call that wasn't on the adgenda. Thanks to this what would have been a bad day at sea and in port turned out to be incredible!
Hats off to Carnival, we love you!
