Great Cruise

Sail Date: October 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The overall appearance was good. Very clean and maintained. Friendly staff at port and on-board.
The main reason we chose this cruise (or any cruise) is for its itinerary. We were quite surprised on the amount of older people on this cruise. We did not see many families on board and we were probably one of the youngest. We have traveled on Holland America (Alaska) before and after this particular cruise\, I would have to say that there were more seniors than Holland (which blows my mind). Carnival is known for its \"fun-ship\" mentality\, so we were caught off-guard of the clientele. Also\, the youngest age on all of our excursions from Carnival was 65. Irregardless\, the ports of call is why we chose this particular cruise line. You will love New England and Canada! We liked it so much that we are planning on returning back in the next couple of years. If possible\, visit in October so you can see the beautiful seasonal changes. It is worth it!!

Pros: The Ports of Call

Cons: Amount of People

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
If you planning to visit the library\, don't. It is the size of your bedroom with very limited space for reading. Loud too due to its location.
Food and Dining
The food was not great. The quality was sub-standard and choices were limited. There are NO specialty restaurants on-board.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The entertainment was not good because I can't even remember what it was. Apparently\, not very memorable.
