Disappointed Veteran Cruiser
Carnival Glory Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Review SummaryAs a veteran cruiser\, 1-2 cruises a year\, we were not happy with this ship. We had just taken 4 of our 5 kids on Glory's sister ship\, the Liberty\, a year ago. In comparison of the two\, Liberty scored higher ratings than the Glory. See comments below.
Food and Dining
AMBIANCE: There were FLIES in the Platinum Dining Room. They were a nuisance to the environment.
SERVICE: Although proper attire is stated in the cabin documents for each day\, patrons were wearing bathing suits\, t-shirts\, and even OVERALLS to dinner. We addressed this with the Host and Hostess and they said they have had issues with patrons on this cruise and were unable to address this with the large number of patrons not complying with the dress/attire rules.
TABLE LINENS: Table linens were only placed on the tables during Elegant Night. We inquired about this and were told that the ship was going with an American Style Dining due to cutbacks. I'm a Proud American but this cutback was a disappointment to a veteran cruiser.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Also\, with it being close to the elevators\, we had a group of drunk patrons who were very loud at 2am on two separate nights. They woke up many patrons in the cabins in this area. Ship staff said there was nothing they could do about this. I got the perception that the ship staff were afraid to confront patrons who were non-compliant on this cruise.
Pros: excursions (Puerto Rico's Rainforest & St. Thomas' Ultimate Island)
Cons: lack of staff services (see below)
