Carnival Glory

September 2016 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

Fun Ship?

Main Dining was great.  Breakfast...meh, worst bacon I have ever had.  Always crowded for breakfast and lunch.  Guy's Burger Joint was outstanding.  Taco bar was pretty good, too.  Clean ship.  Nice room.  Staff was not as friendly as other cruises we have taken.  Evening shows were pretty good. We went to the family friendly comedian shows- the comedians clearly didn't have much family friendly material and basically just talked to people in the audience and tried to make fun of them.  We didn't do any excursions through Carnival, since they charge 60% more than the operators themselves.  Check out Island Marketing Ltd for that.  A lot of the same tours, at significantly lower price.  We had some private tours, since we were the only ones who signed up.  Activities on board were surprisingly few.  They had trivia, and the usual events for shopping, gambling a drinking.  But as far as other things, it was pretty slim, which meant the Lido deck was almost always completely packed with people.  Also, if you have the 8:15 dinner, you will miss out on a lot of the evening events, since they schedule a lot that overlap that time slot. (Some are duplicated at a later time, some are done earlier, but many are not.)  This is likely our last Carnival.  We have had much better experiences all around on Royal Caribbean (2 cruises) and Princess (1 cruise) than we have on our 2 Carnival Cruises...though they did cost a bit less.

skunkherder's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Took intro to scuba from Island Marketing Ltd. Cost about $57. Was great.
Belize City, Belize - Cave Tubing was a long drive for an okay event. If you have been white water rafting, or to any large caverns, this is a bit of a snooze. Plus figure it taking an hour drive each way.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Get your excursions at the dock in Grand Cayman. Use Island Marketing Ltd for the others.
