Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Wow, wow, wow quadruple wow. The food was out of this world. The buffets had alot for everyone irregardless of your dietary or nutrition needs or wants. I gained 5 pounds on my crfuise and I don't care it was awesome. The formal dinner felt like you were in a 4 star restaurant in new York city. Everything was seaoned and cooked to perfection. They had a braised beef rib that brought a tear to my eye it was so good. The waitstaff treated us like royalty. There was nothing lacking at all.

The shows and trivia were great . The pools and slides and mini golf were great. What I didn't care for was the bingo tournaments being $20 a peice for once game. Granted youcould win up to $500 dollars. But I think it would have been better if 5 games at $100 jackpot were done. That kind of turned me off a bit. Also the trivia games should have been played in a place like the Amber room more often than in the casino or bar areas because its to hard to find a seat in those areas. The amber palace hods more people and is more centralized and easier to find.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Like I mentioned before with the waitstaff in the restaurants and buffets they were excellent. The housekeeping staff and our steward Noel on the Carnival Glory were outstanding. Noel was always willing to answer all our questions and tried to accomadate any requests we had. My family and I would once again like to extend our hanks to him. He truly made our cruis experience even better.

The cleanliness of the boat was phenomenal., You would think a ship carrying so many people would have some areas where cleanliness would be an issue. Not on the Carnival Glory which I was on. Everything was immaculate. My sister is handicapped and traveled with us and for the most part it was very easily accessible. We all enjoyed the abstract art located along the walls and elevators. It gave everything a very pop art feel. Young and hip but easily enjoyed by everyone regardless of age.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
We had a balcony room on the 6th floor and the size was pretty good. The decor of the room was very inviting and done in warm colors and the art in the room was much like the rest of the ship very modern abstract paintings. Our balcony was a decent size and we sat out there most nights playing boardgames and relaxing and hearing the ocean waves.
The port is very quaint and all but really is not a neccesary destination. It's like any town, anywhere. The homes on the tour were a bit dilapidated.
Don't Miss: The flea market in the main square.
Pros: Jorge our cruise director was hysterically funny and the food was awesome.
Cons: The prices of sodas and drinks were a bit excessive. Bingo gaames were to pricy and to short. The elevators took forever and there was no order when shows let out. So handicap people ended up havingto wait extra time because healthy able people would jump in front of them and take the elevators.
