Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Number: 1453
Traveled As: Couple

We were looking for a getaway to just relax and this cruise fit the bill. We enjoyed the meals, the crew was accommodating, and the islands were easy walks from the ship.  We were disappointed in the entertainment - definitely geared to a younger crowd than those that made up the passenger roster.  Really wish that smoking was not permmitted in the casino, or at least had more separation between the areas.  But our stateroom was kept clean, and they acknowledged our anniversary with a bottle of wine and a coupon for the spa. I enjoyed having the adult pool all to myself every morning while I did some water therapy and the pool boy, Juan Carlo was gracious to let me go in while he finished his daily chores.  Our waiters, Peter and Erick, were very entertaining, as well as alert to our needs and wants.  

I think the Glory is fast getting in need of a refurbishing but it was just the kind of trip we were needing.

Could have been a few more activities geared to an older crowd.

Only a couple of the acts were worthwhile. Very low budget and geared to a much younger crowd.

Time for refurbishing, some of the windows were being held together with duct tape!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was OK, we actually prefer a lower level but it was very far to the back so everything was a long walk. Guess the exercise didn't hurt us but it was noisy over the engines.

Ship Tip

If you want a quiet pool time for exercise or privacy, try the adult pool on Lido deck, aft at 6:30 to 7:00 every morning. Fresh coffee beside the pool and clean fresh salt water every day.

The people were great but the area is very primative and it is hard to walk on the broken sidewalks. Much poverty.

The skyride is worth the price just for the view.
