This being my 8th cruise and 3rd on Carnival, I was very surprised to find a severe lack in the following areas:

Intercoms for announcements were not working in our balcony room or on the verandah, so we had to open the cabin doors each time an announcement was made.

Outdoor Lighting on Verandah was prohibited and not working unless the ship was in port, so people who rise early or stay up late cannot utilize their balcony for reading until the sun is up.

We never saw our cabin steward except for turndown of beds once and awhile.

Minibar was not restocked with sodas every 24 hours as stated. In fact, even when asked to stock, it wasn't done.

Food on the Lido Deck, especially in the Red Sail Restaurant, was horrible. Hot foods were cold. Cold foods were warm. Coffee/creamer/cups were lacking or absent entirely.

There were tons of children totally out of control and running all over the ship and using the elevators non-stop as entertainment. Obviously, their parents were "on vacation" and they did not utilize the kid's camp offered. Also, they could be found eating ice cream cones in the ADULT-ONLY hot tubs! Surely, this could have been prevented if the staff interceded - they did not!!

The only positives of the cruise were two: the way the Captain handled the ship in extremely rough seas - and the evening entertainment.

Pros: Ports and handling of ship in rough seas

Cons: Food/Service

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.
