Very clean ship. Rooms well-kept. Shows were entertaining. Food was delicious and a wide variety to choose from. Wish some food locations were open longer.. ie. the sushi bar and burrito station.

Pros: food, entertainment, ports, staff

Cons: tendering process at Half Moon Cay

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was enormous. Maps were located to help guide you. It was difficult to get to the Platinum dining room from the front of the ship. You had to navigate through many other rooms to get there. Ship was always clean and they cleaned up quickly after meals.
Food and Dining
We choose the early seating which was perfect for us after long days in the sun. They was a wide variety of food on the menus. If we didn't like an option, they were able to accommodate special requests. Dining rooms were beautiful. Wait staff performed a nightly song and dance which were hysterical.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an inside room on the Lido deck. Room was bigger than I thought and very clean and well-kept.
Service and Staff
Very friendly staff. Cruise directors were hilarious and entertaining.
Lots of options for guests. There were athletic competitions, putt putt games, free-throw games, corn-hole competitions, trivia games, couples games, game-show style games.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
We had a 12:00pm excursion so we waited close to the ship in the morning so we didn't miss our bus. There are a ton of local vendors by the ship. They mostly sell the same things so walk around and see who has the best price. We did the Nautical Catamaran Snorkel trip. Snorkel staff were friendly and helpful. They gave instructions for the experienced and novice snorkeler. Nice boat.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Gorgeous, beautiful island. Picture-perfect day. The only not-so-fun part was waiting in the buffet line for lunch in the hot sun. Also, if you want a clamshell (umbrella shelter), get one as soon as you get to the beach. They sell out quickly. Water was crystal clear and clean. Flour, powder white sand.
