It always amazes me how people are able to write such detailed reviews, but I can provide general thoughts and impressions. This was my 14th cruise and 10th on Carnival so I have some basis for comparison. First, this ship even though ... Read more

We planned this cruise as a family reunion of sorts for my wife's side of the family and ended up having 21 of us ranging in age from 68 to 4! There were cousins that hadn't seen each other in 30-40 years, except thru Facebook. It was ... Read more

This was my 3rd Carnival Cruise and first on the Carnival Glory. I went on the cruise with family members but stayed alone in the cabin. Miami: Stayed the evening before embarkation at the Hampton Inn Brickell. Checked in online and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the availability in the time frame that we wanted, and its' reasonable cost. We felt that it was a good value for the price we paid. Overall, the service was very good. Food and entertainment was very good ... Read more

First off, the cruise itself was brilliant. Good service, good rooms (which by the way, only have ONE electrical output) and great entertainment. There was always some type of event going and the servers were great, especially Rio, Thomas ... Read more

A friend got a "free" cruise for two (her and another friend) from her casino play on a previous Carnival cruise. I joined the two of them and paid the difference as well as for a balcony upgrade. This was my first cruise. It ... Read more

Worst cruise I've ever been on in 24 cruises. From the embarkation to debarkation it was very bad. The cabin was nice and roomy and the cabin steward was attentive, but the cabin was right under the Lido deck and their was noise all night ... Read more

This cruise was a celebration of my turning 50 and my daughter turning 16. This was not our first and with our Gold status we got less rather than more. We use to have chocolate covered strawberries in our room the first night. Last year ... Read more

We have cruised a number of times (about 8) on different cruise lines with and without our children. The programs for the older kids aren't that interesting and our kids (14 and 11) didn't care to spend much time participating. Will ... Read more

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

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
