Smokers Beware!!!!!

Sail Date: June 18, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We have been on several cruises and this cruise rates the lowest of any that we have been on. Second thoughts of ever cruising Carnival again.

Pros: Friendlness of the crew

Cons: Cleanliness of the ship

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Ship Quality
The ship was small, poor cleaniness in the restaurant areas and decks. The stateroom was very clean as well as the main restaurant which we were in the Golden Restaurant even though the Matre"d was the best
Substandard not very entertaining, ships activities where few. The hot tubs were not hot even for the adults one, must have been about 80 degrees
Food and Dining
The diningroom food was decent buffet lacked variety. Chocolate buffet was good. Enjoy the fish bar and the sushi. Service in diningroom was very slow.
Service and Staff
We had good relations with every staff member except for the casino manager. The areas smoke are limited, casino being one of the few places indoors because of the coldness outside we went in there. We were sitting in the smokers area the manager asked us to leave because we were not allowed to smoke inless we were gambling. Went down to the guest service and was told we must have been doing something wrong and that it was under the managers discression. We were told but another person this was told also to others. They have removed thier cigar bar, which was a nice cozy place to relax
Cabin / Stateroom
Porters where good
Saint John, New Brunswick
St. Johns was a better port to visit, it offered a small town quaintness and very friendly people. Once again, the excursions were very expensive for what they offered so we walked the town to sightsee. Loved the experience we had in one of the pubs, awesome bartender who was extremely friendly. Tax base was lower here and prices on souvineers was less.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
See to the Botantical Gardens, we walked around the town the excursions where way expensive for such a small time and town. We were able to see all that there was to see just by walking, in our opinion the pink bus would have been a waist of money. Also the tax base is incredibly high. 18%!!!!!!!!!
