Carnival Glorious

Sail Date: June 21, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: GUAR

Very nice since putting in place the "FunShip" 2.0 features on board. Guy's burger joint was excellent as was the blue iguana burrito and tacos. Very authentic, great a la carte options that were never included with carnival voyages before.

I've cruised a dozen times or so on many lines, and the food on carnival, especially the steakhouse competes or exceeds Royal Caribbean on many levels. Even the Oasis, with it's multiple options fails to compete with carnival.

The ports of call were ok..Cozumel is great for shopping, Belize for snorkeling, Roatan for the beach and Costa Maya for the port..which has a wonderful restaurant, swim-up bar and ample shopping in the immediate area.

Definitely a cruise, however, to be on your guard. Be very careful if planning trips on your own into Belize City or outside Costa Maya's port. Can be dangerous.

Brought my 12-year old as a graduation gift and she didn't want the cruise to end. She absolutely loved it.

Ship Quality
Very clean, well kept public spaces. Balcony room was fine.
Food and Dining
Loved the new funship 2.0 options
Service and Staff
Tatiana, restaurant hostess. Remembered my daughter's nut allergy nightly and saw to it that special desserts and bread were ordered for her daily. Truly shined and showed genuine concern for us.
Entertainment
Live music was cool but shows definitely lacking, especially compared to Royal. sorry.
Children's Programs
Circle C was just OK. Basketball and mini-golf closed off way too early, not enough stuff for kids to do, I feel, amongst themselves. My daughter still loved it!
Onboard Activities
Good
Destinations and Excursions
See aformentioned
Cabin / Stateroom
Miami, Florida
Absolutely love Miami's energy and culture. Always have.
Cozumel, Mexico
Great Shopping
Belize City, Belize
Awesome snorkeling on barrier reef. Don't miss it.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Port OK, beach very crowded.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Port is awesome. Stay there and explore..great pool with swim-up bar while watching dolphins swim in the Dolphin Encounter

Tip

Try to enjoy breakfast plated option in the dining room if you can..much better than buffets on Lido.
Steakhouse is EXCEPTIONAL. Do not miss this option! I've never been let down on any carnival ship.
Get to the Lido deck early (9am) if you want to sit poolside on days at sea!!
