Review summary

I had a great time and I'm going to do it again next year. Very good value. You don't have to spend spend spend to have a good time. Pace yourself it's a 7 day cruise. Other than some of the food the cruise was excellent.

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I didn't care for the dining room most nights. I tried the lasagne and sausage linguini an two separate nights and it was dry. The night that I wasn't happy with was the last formal night when they had filet mignon on the menu and they bring out something that looked like hamburger. Now if I had to pay $20 I would have gotten a real filet mignon. I was so mad I walked out and ate at the buffet. The buffet was good that night. I've never walked out of dinner but, I wasn't happy. The buffet wasn't good most nights either. First night aboard I ate at the steakhouse. It was very good and I got a free bottle of fine because it was the first night. That was the best meal I had at night of the whole trip. The breakfast buffet was good, Blue Iguana was good. Guys Burger Joint always a favorite. BBQ restaurant was very good. I never ate at the deli, seafood shack, or sushi place so I can't judge those places. I also didn't do a sea day brunch.

Onboard Activities

I really never did activities. I just relaxed the whole week.

The shows were amazing. All the shows were exceptionally done. The show that stood out was the last day of the cruise was the holiday show. They had the singer's and dancers from the weeks shows and then the kids age from 5-17 were up singing. Then C-Love our cruise director read the Christmas story Carnival Glory style. Then our Captain Captain Royal came up and said a few words and thanked everyone for sailing with Carnival. Then lining two aisles with crew from all 67 nationalities. It was something to see. Glorious Bandsters played in the lobby and they were excellent. DJ Silk was great. I never went to wee the comedy show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Yoga was my head waiter and he was very friendly and efficient. Room Steward Lestari was great. C-Love our Cruise Director was too funny and full of energy that I wish I had.

Cabin / Stateroom

I was extremely comfortable, size of the cabin was ok. I wish the bathrooms were a little bigger other than that it was ok. Cleanliness of my cabin was great. I loved my balcony stateroom

Ship tip

Once you get on board the party begins. If someone has never cruised before look at the layout of the ship so you don't get completely lost. Also You Tube also have people who have done videos of ship tours on the Carnival Glory

Miami, Florida

I love Miami. I went on a Thriller speed boat ride and a slower cruise and looked at millionaire homes

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Very nice beach and it was a surprise the water was warm for that time of year.

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

I didn't get off the ship.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
It was pretty. I did an excursion at this port. I did a Mega Truck Adventure with beach break and lunch. Water was warm. Had a hard time getting out of the water because when a wave hit you it would pull you back in the water

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
It was very pretty. I had a excursion planned and paid for. I went to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville. They had a big pool to swim in. So I did that instead of snorkeling and going to another beach


5 out of 5
It was really smooth. I was off the ship by 07:45 am and at the airport by 08:45. I carried my luggage off.
