Everything is as good as cruising should be but Carnival is for people who like to PARTY, which means if you are choosing for a nice and quiet relax time, this is not for you. Even at the supposed \"Serenity\" area for adults, there were people shouting out loud conversation and engaging in disrupting behaviors . The kids and teens were nice, it did make our 15 year-old want to hang out at the teen club (with counselors) all day long and participated with the activities.
we were on deck 6, the hallway noise was very annoying, especially when you were trying to sleep in. But I suppose that had more to do with people being rude than the qualities of the cruise (yet again, the party atmosphere of Carnival Cruise seems to attract a certain type of people).

Pros: informative and convinient

Cons: over priced shore excursions

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
the dining room (general buffet area) is a bit smelly but I guess that's just inevitable when there were people dropping food on the carpet all the time. They did try keep it clean constantly.
Food and Dining
no need to pay extra for the steakhouse because you'd find the same food at buffet and sit-down dinner (almost everything but the steak)... just presented differently\, of course. There was lobster tail ont dinner menu on the elegant night.
Cabin / Stateroom
mattresses were worn out.
Service and Staff
The entertainment programs were great\, especially the comedy club option. Although there was mistake on the comedians' schedules on the last day and we ended up missing the show we wanted to watch.
