Don't do it!

Sail Date: October 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Room Type: Inside

While the ship is of average size and decor, everything from staff attitude and service to food quality and port selection needs a serious overhaul!

Pros: A few still worthwhile staff members & a pretty good size ship

Cons: SMOKING ALLOWED INDOORS! Boring activities

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean. Room steward was pleasant.
Food and Dining
The overall food quality was poor. Food buffets were like school cafeteria slop. There was little or no change in selections the entire week! Dining room service was the worst.
Service and Staff
The staff was obviously dying to return to the Miami circuit. With few exception, the staff was detached and unfriendly, with frowns on faces and short answers.
Thie first 2 days were like being at a wake. There were very limited scheduled activities. There was a very high ratio of senior citizen passengers.
However, the 3 broadway style shows were very nice.
Portland, Maine
Friendly port. Historical tour helped to see local interest.
Boston, Massachusetts
Take the hop-on-hop-off tours. They are fun, flexible, and informative If purchased off the ship they are more affordable.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Friendly but not much to see.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
If you didn't buy a tour on board the ship your out of luck. There is not much to do or see. Your typical port city except less friendly than St. John and more expensive.
