11 Night Southern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (San Juan To Miami)
Sail Date: February 02, 2016
Ship: Carnival Glory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8319
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We have been cruising with Carnival since 1985 and seen the change from 'Glamour Cruising' to today's Fun Ship Cruising and while there have been many positive changes over the years, there has been 1 big miss...........The Food.......

The ship still provides a wide variety of menu choices but the quality of the meat items is very low (at best).  We often left dinner hungry and if we went right to a show after dinner, we were left with a choice of pizza or ice cream and even for the ice cream, only 1 station was open.  The service in the dining room was (as always) exemplary but I saw a ton of food being wasted because it simply was inedible.   From rubber steaks to overcooked fish, the decision to save money on lower quality foods is costing a lot of money due to waste.  What a shame.  It is time for this 21 year loyal customer to try another cruise line.

We love the balcony rooms but the ship (and cabins) are in need of a refresh. The smell of sewer coming out of the bathroom fixtures was often overcoming. I always stop on the way to the ship and purchase several packages of inexpensive plastic hangers. That way I can completely unpack and stow the empty suitcases under the bed. This keeps the cabin open and spacious.

Ship Tip

Visit the deli at least 1 time in the evening. The gentlemen working there reminded us so much of the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld that we nicknamed him the "Deli Nazi"......It was always an adventure. No matter what you ordered, you got what he wanted to serve. It was kind of fun.....

Don't tour the island, there is nothing to see :-) Stick to the water on this island.

Save some money and take the public transit bus. It is inexpensive and you not only get to see a ton of the island but also enjoy the local people.
