Carnival Glory

Sail Date: September 20, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The buffet food was not good. The breakfast buffet was tasteless. The dining room food was not a lot better. I'm not a picky eater but this, as usual for Carnival food, was a disappointment. Be prepared to eat a lot of cereal and salads.
The balcony stateroom was roomy and comfortable. The staff members were attentive and helpful.
The jeep, cavern and beach excursion in Cozumel was a disappointment. The explanation of the excursion forgot to mention that you had to get into extremely cold water in the cavern to actually see the cavern. Then the guide only took us around the corner, talked a few minutes, then led us back to get out. People on the excursion were very unhappy with this part. The beach and buffet were great. The jeep was fun for my husband to drive, but you needed to be six feet tall to get into the jeep. A step stool needs to be provided for elderly and short people. I had to be manhandled by a complete stranger to get in and out of the jeep three times. Not much bang for the buck with this excursion.
We cancelled our cavetubing excursion in Belize because I strained my back getting in and out of the jeep in Cozumel. We were very glad we did d/t the fact that to get to the river you had to walk 1/4 mile carrying your tube, the river was high and the current was extremely strong. There were too many people and not enough guides. A woman hit her head in the cavern and drowned, traumatizing not only her family but also everyone on the ship.

Pros: The balcony

Cons: The food

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping is excellent.
Belize City, Belize
Limited shopping. The ship recommends that you don't leave the walled in area because Belise City is unsafe. They never explained what "unsafe" was.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
No shopping. Nothing to do off the ship.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
There is nothing in Freeport. We went to Wyndam Beach Resort for the day and had a good time. The beach there is excellent.
