The ship was enormous but very well kept and clean. This was our first cruise so we were in awe of the beauty and stature of this gigantic floating city. The ship was definitely a city within itself as there was a general store, beauty parlor/barber shop, spa, gym, lounges, restaurants, casino, clothing store, library, photo lab, swimming pools with slides, and even a lounge for only teenagers, and an area just for the little ones. Everything was provided for you.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent. Many varieties to choose from and very delicious. Dining times were your choice, either 6pm or 8pm. If you chose not to eat in the formal dining room, you could elect to eat from the buffet. There was a 24-hour pizzeria, a fish and chips, a deli that served hot and cold sandwiches, a grill that served hamburgers, hot dogs and French fries and an oriental take-out. A lot of variety. During the cruise, there was a chocolate buffet where everything served was chocolate. One night, in addition to the food options, there was a Mexican buffet by the pool. You could also order from room service as well. There was something to eat 24 hours a day.

The entertainment was phenominal. Each night there was a Las Vegas type show in the main auditorium (Amber Palace). Shows ranged from singing and dancing, to an illutionist, to a ventriloquist to a comedy show. Not only were there performers in the main auditiorium but there were also performers performing in the main lobby or in the lounges. We could sit and listen to live jazz, hip hop, reggae, latin, big band, disco, romantic music and much, much more. The possibilites were endless. You had a variety of performers as well as a variety of times and locations for each event.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The ship's staff were very personable and attentive. They always exhibited a smile on their face. Requests were handled immediately. I was impressed with our waiter in the main dining room. He would open your napkin for you and place it on your lap. Our waiter remembered that I liked a cup of decaf coffee before my meal and he was always there waiting to pour it as I took my seat.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Carnival Glory was very clean and the decor was spectacular. Everything on the ship seemed to shine and sparkle. The public restrooms were clean and tidy. There was plenty of seating in the public areas as well as the outdoor area.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Staterooms were clean and spacious. Location was our choice but there were many different options depending on where you wanted to stay. Easy access to elevators and stairs. The decor was top-notch.

Pros: The friendliness of the staff and crew.

Cons: Our cruise wasn't long enough.

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!
