A Nice Ship but some of the people......

Sail Date: November 18, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is beautiful, but big. Therefore there are lines and crowds that are unavoidable. The dining room menu was quite good and upscale. The dining room staff and room stewart were excellent. But, staff not directly involved with you were rude. The photography staff at the stands selling pictures were the worst. Some of the buffet staff can use some training in manners also. The ship caters to a younger crowd so be ready for unsupervised children and teens who do not know how to behave. Fights in public rooms, kids playing cards on the floor of the elevator who refuse to move so you can't get on, kids running the halls at night banging on doors, prank phone calls, food fights (observed twice at the buffet) and more........

Pros: A beautiful ship, excellent dining room staff, terrific menu

Cons: Too many misbehaving teens, rude photo staff and some others

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Belize City, Belize
If you want to see what the Carribean looked like before the tourists and cruise ships ruined it, visit Belize. The people are very friendly and have not yet been spoiled by too many rude Americans.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Walk out of the compound where you dock and take a cab to town. It's only $2 and you are in a private cab, with no long lines to get on a bus that costs $3. Not much in town but the beach is nice and the souvenirs are cheaper. Also they have all the water sports at a lower price than a tour.
Cozumel, Mexico
Good shopping but way too commercial and tourist oriented. Nice beaches. Take a taxi when you get off the ship because the fares are low and they take you to free beaches right next to the ones you pay for if you buy a tour. A taxi tour of the island for 5 hours was $30 per person from any cab driver.
