I chose this becuse a group of 34 friends invited me and spouse. The food buffets breakfast excellent, but the lunch/dinner buffet were a bit of a dissapointment. The lunch time were done by 2:30pm, you could not come back from the island ... Read more

We had taken this cruise several years ago and had such a good time we had to do it again. The itinerary is one of our favorites. Half Moon Cay and Grand Turk are perfect for getting off the ship and going swimming. Puerto Rico and St. ... Read more

We are frequent cruisers and have cruised on most cruise lines. We have avoided Carnival previously just based upon our observations at other ports. We chose this cruise because only Carnival and Holland go to Grand Turk and we wanted to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the destinations/ports... which WERE amazing. The ship however was not. The Carnival Glory is outdated, rusted, dirty, smells, poorly maintained, lacks entertainment.. the list goes on. The cruise ... Read more

Was looking forward to taking my adult family on a vacation. We have all cruised multiple times before and thought it would be a nice treat for our anniversary and as a precursor to my wife having knee surgery. With so many negative ... Read more

After spending months reading reviews and blogs after booking our first cruise, I decided I would take time to write one for other first timers. After many years of taking vacations to Disney we decided to do something a little ... Read more

The boarding and debarkation was super smooth. The Carnival rep called me a few weeks prior to the cruise to upgrade at a super discount, so I got a Grand Suite for a steal and was it ever worth the few extra dollars. The staff were ... Read more

As this was my 8th cruise with Carnival. My 3rd on the Glory, 2 disappointing cruises in a row. The last one was 2014, where we sailed to Aruba and Curacao. Both islands had their labor day which meant both islands were completely closed ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. I've read some negative reviews about this cruise and all I can say is that if you want to have a bad time, then no one can stop you. A cruise is really what you make of it. The more involved you get ... Read more

This specific cruise schedule is by far the best we have been on. For a 7 day cruise, and the islands we visited, we got our money's worth! The Glory was as expected, a veteran seasoned ship, with its minor flaws, mostly visual. But it ... Read more

This was my fifth Carnival cruise and it will be the last. Two days before we left for the cruise, I received a call to upgrade to a grand suite from a balcony room for $800, and I took it since there were 4 people in our cabin. This was ... Read more

We waited outside at our scheduled time, 1130 to 1200, for about 20 minutes before we got inside. Once inside it took another 15 minutes to get through check in and then get on-board. Our cabin was immediately ready for us. We then ... Read more

Please note that I rated this cruise 4 out of 5 (which is better than average) but it was the worst Carnival cruise we have been on and this was my fifth cruise with Carnival - first time on the Glory. I did not give it a 5 because it just ... Read more

We spent the night in Miami prior to boarding our cruise. The embarkation process was very smooth. They had a specific check in time. We were a little late, but since it was past our time, we were able to go right in. The ship was very ... Read more

Went on this cruise with my two sisters and it was something we looked forward to for a year. One of my sisters had never cruised before so it was exciting to watch her reaction to everything. We chose the Eastern Caribbean as we liked ... Read more

We choose this cruise (our first Carnival) for both the value and to visit new ports (Amber Cove and Grand Turk). The cleanliness, pool area, adult area, entertainment (trivia and live music fantastic), cabin size, steward service, etc ... Read more

I have cruised Carnival for 30 years. It started out as the "Fun Ships" 30 years ago and is now the lower end of the cruise industry. The staff is no longer attentive and caters to a low class clientele. It was great to ... Read more

This was my second cruise and the first one that I planned myself. I did a lot of research online before deciding to book directly with the cruise line. I chose the Glory because the ratings and reviews online were for the most part very ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise on Carnival but it has been a few years since my last. Everything was as awesome as I recalled except some of the changes in the VIFP perks. Some of the cost cutting measures seemed overly cheap like not ... Read more
