Our experience on the Glory, although maybe not typical, is cause for concern. We had a room problem that required maintenance and cleanup. The response was slow by the crew to rectify and clean up resulting to extreme inconvenience for us for 3 days while at sea or port. There was no back up plan to house us elsewhere or anywhere until we could return to a normal room. We were forced to endure noise and soaked carpets during this period. Adequate compensation was not satisfactory as far as what we endured. Cruise line response has been flippant, although apologetic with simplified caveats. As far as life boat drills, I wish there was a standard held for all guests as opposed to those that were late or never took part. The crew simply ignored them and never asked for their cooperation as they mingled around door ways and inside the hallways. The food was great and plentiful, the wait staff pleasant and attentive and food quantity just perfect. The suite we had was roomy and comfortable with plenty of space; but a VCR, which decade are we in? Temperatures throughout the ship were comfortable. Though we have sailed on Carnival before, we'd look elsewhere next time.

Pros: Food, waiters size of suites

Cons: Leadership presence and inability to react to problems quickly. Smoky everywhere

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.
