Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Our Balcony aft room 8455 was awesome. Great balcony which wraps around which was the same cost as other adjacent aft balconies. You can hear all the chairs being moved on Lido deck 9 which wasn't too bad if your from NYC like us but if you like it nice and quiet choose deck 7. Food was okay, nothing spectacular. Service was spotty with a light crew. Entertainment on the ship consisted of mostly the cruise patrons, the ship had two decent shows, small stage though.

Pros: Getting off the ship (Shore excursions through Carnival were good though)

Cons: Lack Luster to little on board entertainment

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Lack luster. Was mostly self entertainment. When they did put together a package it involved you paying something in order to win or to get involved.
Ship Quality
Water in the shower went from Hot to Cold to luke warm from the 2nd day to almost the last day. Found this quite peculiar. Also my shower head was missing one day. They were doing maintenance on the ship while we were ON BOARD. They took off the base molding and replaced it the following day. Felt like they were preparing for the next cruise and didn't really care what we thought anymore since our cruise was almost done. Certain items like the Mechanical Equipment rooms weren't covered up, not so much a big issue but these are items that you would like to keep hidden for aesthetic reasons.
Service and Staff
Light bartenders at every station, some avoided you all together and when you did get service they barely smiled.
Food and Dining
I didn't expect anything too spectacular from the buffet but the dinning room was one of the biggest let down. Many days i just had a Cesar salad and a cappuccino, some nights i avoided the dinning room all together. Trust me i am 300lbs and know a thing or two about food and i had NO appetite.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room staff was awesome! Tip well!
