Review summary

While we were spoiled by the Carnival Dream & the service we received waiters and waitress went above and beyond to make you feel welcome and like royalty. The service on the glory was terrible and they almost made us feel like we were an inconvenience to them. .. I would HIGHLY recommend Carnival but would warn everyone DO NOT GO ON THE GLORY ! I felt like I got ripped off ! Where like I say service was so good on the Dream I felt like I needed to tip more and felt like I had a great vacation. Plus there were no maintenance issues with the Dream or if there was it was so well hidden that we didn’t notice it.

Service and Staff

After paying 800 and some odd dollars for the drink package I was extremely disappointed when you had to be your own waitress and go get your drink yourself if you waited on deck and they told you they were going to send a waiter it might be an hour and a half later before you would see anyone. The last Carnival Cruuse was terrific this one was extremely disappointing

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship design was ok I was upset that the deck above the pool only had lounge chairs instead of tables as when you are older and larger it is impossible to get up and down in one of those so you couldn’t go watch the activities at the pool or the movie or anything.. the maintance that was going on while we were at sea was horrible and many many people complained about the noises waking them up between 2 and 4 am.. then getting in some areas the paint fumes were so bad I thought I was gonna pass out. We had no hot water for 3 days. And pipes rattled terribly.. like everyone said boat needs to be dry docked and overhauled then a bunch of staff added so you could get the drinks you already paid for.. we shouldn’t have had to pay gratuities on the drinks since we had to be our own waitress and waiters most of the time.

Liked the port and all the shopping! Very clean ! We went to Turquoise bay which I would highly recommend.

Belize City, Belize Did not visit port

We didn’t have any shore excursions planned and we had heard from others how dirty it was and that there wasn't much shopping

Cozumel, Mexico
