After having cruised last year on the Conquest we were seriously disappointed with the Carnival GLORY. The Glory's July 4th cruise was noisy. The vibration from the ship's motors was extremely annoying. From vibrating seats in the dining room all the way to our cabins on the 8th deck. The ship needs servicing. Also people were constantly slamming cabin doors at all hours. Crew  members did nothing to alleviate this. If your looking for a RELAXING cruise this isn't the ship. The cabin crews, dining crews and guest services were not up to par. The entertainment was fair with the exception of the Pianist in the Piano bar ( excellent) and the Guitarist/singer Edd Carr who was by far the best entertainer on board.

Lacking. Unless your intention is to spend time and money in the gift shops.

The Pianist Carson Rhodes in the lounge was excellent and gracious. The guitarist/ singer Edd Carr is a phenominal musician .

If you travel on the Glory request a table on the upper level for dining and bring ear plugs.
