Pleasant time

Sail Date: February 19, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

It was a nice middle of the road ship. Small pools. Disappointing promenade shops. Very clean.

Pros: Having a balcony room

Cons: All the mix ups

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.

Ship Quality
It was a nice ship. Library small. Layout ok. Could only get from back to front (public areas) on promenade deck. Missed a walk around outside of ship.
Food and Dining
Average quality food. Meat tended to be dry, veggies overlooked and desserts very bland. Enjoyed the fresh fruits. Dining areas very noisy.
Shows were a disappointment-underehearsed. Magician was laughable. Any activity was way too loud. Left each night with a headache. Couldn't carry on a conversation when band was playing on lido deck.
Children's Programs
Not available for toddlers. There were a lot of them on board. We couldn't use the pools and there was no designated play area for them-yet we were charged almost full price for the privilege of having them with us. Poor little guy had no place to stretch and play. We took to going to a lounge and making our own play area
Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice. Excellent linens.
Service and Staff
Wait staff and room stewards were superb. Customer service and shore excursion staff not nearly as friendly or helpful. Very curt- had to push for help. We were supposed to have a crib- didn't arrive until 7p. Baby had to nap on bed. Felt like I was a nuisance the few times I had to deal with them
