A relaxing cruise

Sail Date: June 24, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overall, the cruise was relaxing, clean and enjoyable. It's in the details that the cruise fell short of what we'd heard about cruises -- but we were only looking for a weekend getaway and not some extravagant resort. Things like the quality of the dining room food, beer/wine selections, ease of movement around the ship, adult activities and areas, and the difficulty in obtaining drinks in the dining room were all areas for improvement. Things that impressed us were the cruise director (Jorge), cleanliness, towel animals, lounge entertainment, and the friendly staff.

Pros: Mixed drink selection and quality

Cons: Mattress

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
Few too many people for our liking, difficult to traverse certain decks, deck layout (such as bathroom locations) differed from deck to deck, but the staff kept the ship very clean.
Food and Dining
The quality (overall) was on par with our typical NJ restaurants and our local diners put the Glory's breakfast to shame. Not a single entree impressed us. Variety and dining times were both perfectly fine.
Cabin / Stateroom
Would have rated excellent but one of our twin mattresses was extremely wilted -- more like a hammock. We were in one of the cheapest, smallest rooms so it exceeded our expectations in all other areas.
Service and Staff
Almost all of our interactions with the staff were very positive but a few bad eggs did pop up. We felt the emcees at some of the shows/games were a little rude/harsh in response to rude audience members. We know it's hard to take the high road but that's what excellent service requires.
We felt the daily activities list was too short and especially with regards adults and men in particular. The bingo payouts were awful as we estimated they took in $8000 while only paying out $600 for an hour of play -- that's just egregious.
Saint John, New Brunswick
We didn't take the cruise for the destination but Saint John is a quaint town to visit.
