Room Type: Balcony

Our cabin was wonderful. Spacious, clean and a balcony. However, the ship needs a huge face lift. Furniture is worn. The floorplan of the ship did lend itself to easy access to and from key areas on the ship. The piano bar was pitiful. The lido buffet was dark and the furniture needs improvement. Plastic tableware only. Choice of foods were limited, compared to other cruise ships.

Very little shaded seating around the pool.

There was an unpleasant odor in the area of the women's steam room and sauna. Also, the floor was not attended to and if you weren't careful, you would slip.

One night in the kareoke bar the staff continued serving liquor to a woman who was completely out of control. Is it just about making money??? Additionally, there were young children present in the lounge after 10 PM. This is inappropriate.

We had the \"dine at any time\" feature. This turned out to be one of the most disorganized systems for this ship. First you waited on line for a pager. Then you went elsewhere to wait for the pager to buzz. When you turned in your pager, you were shoved to the side to wait to be escorted to your table. Please know, that it is not that there weren't any available tables. It was just that they were not cleaned and set up. Poor management. Also, the waiters in the dine as you wish section, were inattentive. There seemed to be no need for them to try and please you, since they receive the standard tip.

If you expect elegance and luxury, this is not the ship for you.

Pros: My cabin

Cons: The dark\, tacky\, worn lido deck buffet

Recommends Carnival Glory? No.
