Boring, Actually

Sail Date: June 01, 2012

Room Type: Oceanview

My friend and I , in our late 40's, felt a bit out of place on this ship as there were not many single women travelling in our age bracket. The cruise director was very visable, yet extremly annoying as he attempted to \"steal the show\" at every opportunity. The music offerings were good to excellent, the comedy shows were good to excellent, the on board activities that were trumped up to be exciting and wonderful were in fact, lacking any real pizazz. We were actually bored mostly and it seemed the whole theme of the trip was based on Carnival's attempt to get you to drink and/or gamble excessivly . With different staff, Carnival could really be a way cool ship to cruise on!

Pros: I loved that the ship was kept spotless! All of the staff was genuinely friendly\, although not especially hospitable.

Cons: Food was mediocre\, even at the \"Fine Dining\" restaurant\, cabin service poor

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
Beautiful ship\, nicely designed\, easy access to all areas.
Food and Dining
The fine dining portions in the restaurant were small and tastless although our waiter was the cats' meow!
The buffet and room service were the far better choices.
Cabin / Stateroom
Large and spacious\, very clean. I loved that it was cleaned twice a day\, although our cabin boy was not one for running errends or offering information--The standard answer to most requests and questions was \"seven minutes\"???!!!
Service and Staff
Staff was super friendly but not intuitive to guests needs\, nor physically responsive to requests . They were always very busy\, always smiling\, always pleasant\, extremely polite---but that's about it.
1 Great comedian\, the rest just okay...Most of the live music was really good to excellent-
Activities were for the 20 yrs olds\, anything else was trumped up boredom with faked and bottled excitement-ugh. The Saint John port was interesting and very relaxing.
