We have been anticipating this cruise for 9 months. My OCD leant itself to lots of checks, re-checks, videos, blogs and boards to learn as much as I could about the cruising process and the particulars about our ship. I can say we were well prepared, there were very few negative surprises, lots of AHAH

and many we can do this better next time moments.  The cruise was an excellent value, the cabin was clean and actually had more storage space than I anticipated. The embarkation and disembarkation process was very smooth, Our only concern was the food temperature not taste.  The food in the buffet was seldom if ever hot and at times barely warm.  I was concerned about how that may be from a health perspective but so far, so good.  I would strongly suggest Carnival Glory find a way to maintain a palatable and safe food temperature.  Other than that, we will loved our cruise and will return,

The refrigerators never stay cold!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a comfortable size and clean, climate control not consistent, the bed was very comfortable, the refrigerator was replaced due to it not getting cold and the replacement did not work any better.

Ship Tip

Please work on making the food on the buffet a more palatable temperature. I could not even melt butter in my oatmeal on any time or day of my cruise.
