March 2015 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Eastern
This was our third cruise. 2nd on Carnival. The ship was very nice. We had an inside stateroom that was comfortable and well cared for. The bad part of the cruise was the food. We don't expect gourmet for low price tickets. However having better food on two other cruises gave us a benchmark. In the main dining room one of our table mates ordered chicken. They got a cold dry breast with grocery store canned peas and carrots. I order vegetable lasagna that came with old grayish noodles. Each morning they had potatoes on the breakfast buffet that were beyond horrible. Either it was gross baked quarter potatoes or hash brown patties that were so over cooked that the inside part containing potatoes was cooked away leaving a hard shell with grease inside. They no longer put have or bacon in the buffet you have to get in a separate line and get handed a rationed portion. The ham was like plastic, and the bacon overcooked and hard. Their taco bar, hamburger station, and pizza station were good to very good. As far as our stops go; Nassau was good for shopping, Half Moon Cay is a wonderful private island that like a little piece of paradise, Grand Turks was awful. The Grand Turk is just a place made for cruise ships. It's just a little shopping village with a pool and not much else.
