Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Good time, hectic at times
Cruised with a group including my husband and 2 year old daughter, parents (65+) and cousin (40-ish).

Embarkation - huge line up and moved extremely slow / very crowded.

Stateroom - balcony room was great! Note that our room (6469) was right above the lounge that had comedy shows and karaoke. Very loud at times, but did not bother us too much. I am told that most rooms on the 6th floor can be loud due to the fact that they are situated above the promenade level that contains a lot of the restaurants, lounges etc.

My parents' stateroom was at the very back of the ship. (2460) Spacious room and was very nice, but loud at times because it's situated above the engines. Lots of creaks when ship was in motion and very noisy when ship was docking.

Food - we enjoyed most of the food and found lots of variety, quite fresh and healthy options as well.

Overall, we found this particular cruise to be crowded at times. Lots of kids in the pools with no parental supervision (ie. kids cannon-balling into the hot tubs), crowds to get off the ship when in port, line ups for food etc.

Also, the music on the pool deck (mid ship) was extremely loud. We are young and love music, but it was just too loud to be enjoyable.

However, there were lots of bonuses - friendly staff, very clean overall, lots of things to do on the ship and the Kids Club was great for our 2 year old. Also highly recommend getting a stateroom with balcony. It's worth the extra money.

Would we recommend Carnival Glory - maybe. It really depends on your style of travel. For us, we prefer a bit more laid back and quieter vacation away from crowds. But we certainly enjoyed our trip and had a good experience on board the Carnival Glory.
