An easy cruise!

Sail Date: May 29, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The room stewards were great and the rooms were large and clean. Didn't care for the fact that we upgraded the cabin to be in the middle of the ship to avoid so much walking; Room location was great, but the two floors above us did not allow through access on those floors so we ended up doing as much walking as if we were on either end of the ship. The food was good. The restuarants were good, the Steakhouse was wonderful. The bars and lounges left a lot to be desired. They appeared understaffed and we had to go the bar to place our orders vice having a waiter take our orders. There was too much smoking allowed in too many public areas, especially the casino.

Pros: Local embarkation/debarkation.

Cons: Too short staffed in the bars and lounges; tables not cleared and having to go to the bar to order your drinks vice a waiter taking the orders. Too many public smoking areas..

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Food and Dining
Did not like the Red Sail Buffet restaurant area. It was too big, too crowded, and too loud. We ate most of our meals in the dining rooms which were much more tasteful. Steak House was excellent in both food and service. Well worth it.
Service and Staff
Only had to ask for information twice. Received it without any problems, but it was nothing special.
Lots of things going on all the time. But as mentioned previously, we were disappointed in smoking, especially in the casino. Was very disappointed in the paper push through - reuse bingo cards. For $20 I expected to have markers or electronic games available.
Ship Quality
See comments in the review.
Cabin / Stateroom
No problems at all. The room steward always had everything ship shape. The size was great, the bed was comfortable, and the temperature was always just right. Lots of storage space. Overall, very comfortable.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
We had been there before so we didn't take an excursion this time. Instead we looked through the local Straw Market right outside the ship. Most of the shops were similiar, but you could find a treasure or two if you took the time to look. We did and enjoyed it. We then headed back to the ship to enjoy the adult pool.
Don't Miss: Staw market.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
The beach was beautiful, and amenities were good. Very sandy bottom, but not much to see if you want to snorkle there. There weren't very many local crafts for sale and we wished there had been more. We did not take an excursion.
Don't Miss: The sandy beach.
