Had a really nice time
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Canada, New England, New York
Sail Date: July 03, 2010
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship is beautiful and very, very clean. Our room had a balcony and was a nice size room for a cruise ship. We had room 7448 which is the back the ship on the Empress Deck. Loved watching sunsets each evening. We went on this ship with 2 other couples, and chose it because we wanted to leave out of NY.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The dining room staff in the Platinum room couldn't be nicer. I felt the Gold Dining room (where we were the 1st nite) clearly handled the overflow or the 'dine with no set time' people. If you have a set time, and a set table, the staff gets to know your likes and dislikes, and really tries to please you. We asked for ketchup the 1st dinner, and it was in place each nite after that.
Our biggest complaint was the GYM. Out of 7 Elliptical machines; 4 were out of order. The staff were more interested in their laptops searching their facebook accounts then in attending to and assisting people using the equipment. People were on treadmills in flip flops, and staff didn't seem the least bit interested.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Walking along the pier. Cow's ice cream (mooey gooey), and the 'hopper tour'.
Pros: Leaving out of NY and Our Balcony
Cons: St. John, and the long lines at the buffets
