Just got back from a week on Glory. Have cruised many times and at least 6 times with Carnival. This was my second voyage on Glory. Cabin was fine, crew was friendly and helpful. I am not a foodie, do not have high ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise, 4th with Carnival. We booked this cruise because of the value and the ports of call and for the most part the cruise exceeded our expectations. However... The boutique hotel on Calle Fortaleza in OSJ was small ... Read more

I considered myself a somewhat seasoned cruiser having been cruising since 2001, logging 20 cruises in that time; and in the process achieving Platinum status on RCL, Princess and Carnival. I say somewhat seasoned because I know many ... Read more

The main reason for choosing this cruise was the length and itinerary. What we ended up finding were some nice upgrades to the Glory and fresh activities which included the long lost midnight buffet. If your vacation experience must ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Carnival. We went on this one because of all the islands they stopped at. We have cruised with R.C., NCL, Holland, and Princess other years, and this was poor to all of them!! Embarkation was quick and ... Read more

This was our third cruise and third with Carnival and we chose it because we hadn't been to most of the stops- only repeat stop was St Maarten. Our stops were St Croix, St Maarten, Dominica, Grenada, Bonaire, Aruba and Caracao. We love ... Read more

We have cruised with Carnival about 8 times before, once with P&O and once with MSC. Glory is an older ship and this is reflected in her appearance, many areas are streaked with rust and our balcony was particularly bad! The ... Read more

Many reviewers say "you get what you pay for" and precede to give an unfavorable review. I agree, you do get what you pay for. We paid for food, fun, and entertainment, and yes we got all of that and more. We have sailed with ... Read more

(Please forgive me for the horrible spelling and improper grammar. On a plane, tired, blah) I just got off the Carnival Glory after a 10-day cruise departing Miami. I have used online reviews and forums over the years when researching ... Read more

I wanted 14 days, so choose back to backs with a different itinerary eastern and western Caribbean, so I could stay in same cabin. I'm a veteran cruiser (this was 11th, but first without my wife, her health would not allow) I have cruised ... Read more

Having cruised a number of times on Princess, Holland, and the Carnival Breeze, we were wide-eyed when we walked on the Glory. The decor is very club-ish, with lower ceilings, bold colors, and neon lights. With over 1000 more passengers ... Read more

We have cruised about 20 times on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Disney and Princess. This was our first time on Carnival. We chose it due to time constraints and because we thought the destinations were interesting. We found the contrast ... Read more

I have been on around 20 cruises on various lines and this one was by far THE WORST. I am 21 years old, and have enjoyed Royal Caribbean the most. The only good thing about this ship was their burger place, but burgers every day gets old. ... Read more

On our trip, December 12-19, we hoped for the best. We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon cruise in 2011, but had a horrible time on a shorter cruise in 2012. We thought we would give Carnival another try. We had an ocean view room ... Read more

December 12-19 was another great cruise on the Glory. I really can't say enough when you think about the fact that they are taking care of 3000 passengers for seven days. We left extra tips for everyone. You really can't complain about the ... Read more

We were slightly worried by reviews we had read which suggested that the Glory might not just be up to scratch. Well, as far as I can see, the negative reviewers really were searching hard to be offended. Boarding took us about an ... Read more
