A good overall experience

Sail Date: January 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

We cruised the first week in Jan. 2011 with 2 college kids, parents and grandparents. Had a great time. Our first Carnival cruise. Felt it compared in quality to the past NCL and Princess cruises.

Pros: Attention to cleanliness and hygiene, friendly staff

Cons: long line to board, not many cruise director interactions.

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Food and Dining
So many options that if you cannot find something to eat you like, that is your own fault. The speciality items (mongolian grill, fish and chips) lines get long at peak hours as all food is prepared to order.
Had some really great entaintainers (comedians, illusionist and juggler/comedian) and average ship dancer programs. A few nights we did not find anything that interested us so lost money gambeling instead. Maybe that was Carnivals plan.
Ship Quality
Was pleased to see hand sanitizer everywhere. Also, public rest rooms had tissues to open up the door to prevent contamination when leaving. It took a bit to get the layout of the ship, but we eventually figured it out. All an adventure. Very clean and we noted the stewards cleaning the halls in the room areas continously.
Cabin / Stateroom
WE had 4 adults (2 college kids and their parents) in an inside cheap room. It worked just fine. Was pleasantly suprised by the large bathroom and comfortable beds.
Service and Staff
Very receptive room steward. Got us an extension cord for my husbands CPAP machine without asking after the first night. Knew that my daughter does not like her covers tucked in, son does. The dining room staff was very attentive and pleasant too. We got many "how are you today" and friendly greetings when meeting staff in the halls.
