Review summary

This cruise was a celebration of my husband's birthday and my brother's honeymoon with his new wife. We were all blown away with the ports and service. I am so glad that we were all able to go together. It was also the first time I had seen my brother in over a decade, so it truly had a ton of emotion behind it.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We purchased Faster to the Fun, so we got on the boat as soon as we were able to. The ship wasn't quite ready when we got there, but it worked out really well because the other half of our party was delayed slightly. They made it up to the lounge before boarding.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Oh my goodness! As always, Carnival does NOT disappoint. Every bite was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the Steak House. You get 5 star service, on china and silver. Seeing the cuts of meat before we ordered was fantastic. Surf and Turf is the way to go. It was am amazing experience.

Redfrog Rum Bar

5 out of 5

Redfrog Rum Bar really knows how to make a drink! We truly enjoyed the Rum Runner Jumpers. It was a new flavor for us and was outstanding!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We enjoyed the aft hot tubs, although they could be warmer. They were a little above bath water temperature.

Camel Club Casino

5 out of 5

I was so pleased to be able to enjoy the casino this time around. It wasn't filled with suffocating smoke because it is more open on the Glory. The bar there serves strong drinks too!

Entertainment

We didn't focus on much of the entertainment.

Children's Programs

No children traveling with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
As always, every member of the cruise was warm, inviting, polite, and excited to be there.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I really loved the outside decks on 3 and 10. It was fun to see the water so close on 3.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This cabin was the same as the one we had on the Dream. Everything was to our expectations. We love having a balcony so that we can sit out there and enjoy the view by ourselves.

Ship tip

Leave your expectations at home and everything will excite you!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

1 out of 5
I didn't like Miami at all. We visited South Beach both the night before and night after our cruise. We had horrible service in the restaurants we chose each time. I have no desire to ever go back.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
HMC is breathtaking! We got a cabana and were able to enjoy the beach every second we were there. The service we received was stellar! My brother rented a Hobby Cat and we were able to sail to the other side of the beach and enjoyed the peace and serenity.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We went to Paradise Point via the SkyRide. It was an amazing view. The people here are so authentic and appreciative of our business. This visit made the whole trip worthwhile. I don't recommend any of the port vendors, they were all so pushy. The vendors up at PP were outstanding!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
We had so much fun visiting the old fort and dining in an old convent. We truly felt like we were getting the Puerto Rican experience. The street vendors and shop owners were awesome and were not pushy at all.

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
We visited Margarittaville here. We had a great time, but it is much more of a party atmosphere for the younger crowd. We stayed towards the back by the kids area and enjoyed ourselves away from the chaos at the front of the pool. It takes FOREVER to be served at the bar or swim up bar, unless of course you have boobs and blonde hair. That is my personal opinion, but my brother and husband both agreed.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
With Faster to the Fun we were able to meet in the Golden dining room and get right off the ship, no lines, no waiting. It was awesome!
