A Nice Surprise!

Sail Date: October 01, 2010

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

This was our first sailing on a Conquest Class ship. After a disappointing trip on the Triumph last year, we weren't expecting the pleasant surprise we received when we boarded the Glory. The ship is beautiful and in great shape! A recent refurbishment which included new carpeting and the addition of the Serenity area to the top decks really helped to enhance the ship. Everywhere we went, the staff was outwardly friendly and eager to help.

We especially enjoyed the variety of the food in the Red Sail (Lido Deck) restaurant. The seafood specialties in the Fish & Chips restaurant were delicious. The musical entertainment in the lounges was some of the best we've experienced on any cruise. Our favorite spot was the adults-only Serenity area which is located on the bow area of the ship. Its a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the scenery. I hope this addition is in the plans for the other Conquest class ships.

Pros: Beautiful ship, Friendly Staff, Great Entertainment

Cons: Elevators, Disembarkation, Smoking in Public Spaces

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was very clean and bed was comfortable. Our attendant did a great job keeping the room clean & neat.
Service and Staff
Friendly, attentive and helpful throughout the cruise.
The most fun I've had in a long time, thanks to the activities and entertainment provided.
Ship Quality
Great layout although getting from the bow to the aft of the ship on Deck 3 is a little confusing. Also loved the "stadium seating" in the outdoor pool area. Ship was immaculate.
Food and Dining
Loved the ahi tuna and seafood chowder in the Fish & Chips station.
