What a great family time....

Sail Date: July 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

We traveled with our two daughters and their families. Twelve people in total. Ages from six to sixtyish. There was plenty to do for everyone\, the food was excellent and the entertainment was good BUT noise was overwhelming. The volume needs to be dropped by many many decibels. The volume in the shows was so loud you could not hear the words of the singers. The volume of the music on the deck was so loud it was uncomfortable to sit outside. AND it was not just the music. Constant advertising at the deck specialty restaurants competing with the DJs made in uncomfortable. TURN IT DOWN. The serenity spaces are too small!

Pros: Spending time with our entire family.

Cons: Turn down the volume

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship is well laid out with lots of interesting spaces. BUT there is competition for the space. Our ship was full and it made it difficult to sometimes find space to relax.
Food and Dining
Unfortunately\, we had a late seating which moved our schedules further into the evening than we wanted with our small children\, but we were able to adapt. The waiters were great and service was 5 Star.
Cabin / Stateroom
We got what we expected and paid for. The staff made the price worth the effort.
Service and Staff
Staff always went above and beyond. We were almost always called by our names. Nice touch.
Could not hear the singers it was o loud on many of the lounges and clubs to sit and visit with others. Don't let hearing impaired people adjust the volume. Consider the intent of the crowd. If you can't hear others talk it may be too loud.
Children's Programs
Good job taking care of the kids. There was always something to do.
