5 Night Canada/New England (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 25, 2012
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Several shows were interrupted or cancelled due to \"technical Difficulties\". Grand Finale show on the last night of the cruise was great, the rest were mediocre or non-existent. One of the comedians - Doug Funk was great! TV reception for any live shows was impossible to watch. Screens were stippled and audio was choppy. The ships Satellite tracking system needs a major overhaul as does the theatre systems.
Overall the pools were inadequate for the number of guests onboard. Found it difficult to get to one end of the ship from the other without traversing stateroom floors.
The adults only \"Serenity\" areas were great albeit a little windy at the bow of the ship.
Dining room was OK, food was good and the staff were excellent!.
Stateroom Stewards were excellent and very attentive. Rooms were made up in the morning so you had fresh towels for afternoon/evening every day.
Specialty Steak house food and service was first class, however the location was directly under the running track and just above an open stairwell to the Rail Sail self-service dining areas. If people were running above you could hear the pounding on the ceiling. Fortunately it got quiet towards dinner time.

Would have liked more classes in the gym. Only 2 spinning classes on a 5 day cruise!
