Review summary

We had a wonderful time on the Carnival Glory. Onboard activities were plentiful, as well as the food. Our cruise Director Brittney was excellent, with a great personality. I thing she's a great asset to Carnival. Michelle from Amber Palace was also a great entertainer. The only issue we really had was the overall condition of the ship. It is dated, and really starting to show its age. I think it's about time they take it on Dry dock for a complete makeover. Other than that, everything went well, staff was always helpful.

Most of the staff were always working hard. They will usually acknowledge you as you walk thru the hallways.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This is what prevents me from giving this cruise a 5 star. The overall condition of the ship was not good at all. Ship is in desperate need of a makeover. I think they should send it to dry dock for some upgrades. Carpet was dirty, old fashioned deco throughout. The staff tried their best to keep it clean, but there's only so much they could do with such an aging ship.

Ship tip

If you want to be close to all the actions and the food, your best bet is to stay on the Lido deck (9th floor).
