Back to Back on the Glory

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship is well taken care of and clean. For the cheap price we paid\, we got great value. Quite a few of the other travelers were obnoxious though - really loud in the dining room\, noisy in the hallways late at night. The ship and its staff\, food and activities were all good - it was the other travelers who were sometimes a pain to be around - not much class. Not many children or young people on board since it was a school week.

Pros: The chocolate desserts were fantastic!

Cons: Bands and Music was too loud everywhere - needs to be turned down a notch or two

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Was interesting because the first week of our cruise was the old dinner menu and the second week was the start of a brand new menu system. New menu a bit confusing since something changed each night - some courses are \"shared\, family style\" others are not. Seemed like a lot more food the second week - and a lot more wasted food. Our waiter for the second week (Roberto) was extremely accommodating and friendly.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was fine - pretty normal size and amenities for an inside (we've been on 15 previous cruises). Our steward (YoMan from Indonesia) was excellent. Room was in great condition. Cabin was on 6th floor\, right over the main stage\, so it was really noisy (we could totally hear the show) at night until the late show was over and whenever the group was practicing in the afternoon\, we could clearly hear the music and the words.
Service and Staff
Staff were always nice and helpful when you asked them anything. As with all cruises\, the staff work long hours and work hard. If you took the time to start a conversation with them\, they were always fun to talk to.
Entertainment
Singers and dancers were good\, Mime/Comedian/Juggler was funny\, Comedy club was good\, but lots of adult\, crude humor in most of the shows. Even the family shows contained some things I wouldn't want young children to hear. Wish the magician would have been on more than once - we only saw him in the dining room\, missed his main show.
