Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Only two things were really unpleasant on this cruise
Embarkation in Miami; We arrived later than normal for us and found that the lines extended to outside the building. However, the lines were constantly moving so it wasn't too bad. I would guess about it took about 45 minutes to board the ship.

Room: There were three of us in the cabin. The cabin layout was very good and the bathroom a little larger than some we have had on previous cruises. The bunk drops from the ceiling, rather than the wall, and this seemed to allow more room between the beds. The fridge does not get very cold, but it was adequate for our needs. Our room steward, Osnel(sp) was very pleasant and did a very good job in taking care of our room. He responded promptly to any requests that we had. He also created some terrific towel animals.

Food: We didn't have any real issues with the food. We split the evening dining between the dining room and the buffet We had breakfast and lunch at the buffet. All of us enjoyed the Grill, the Mongolian Wok, the Burrito Bar, and the Deli. The deserts were very good for the most part, the only disappointment I had was the Creme Brulee in the dining room.

Worst Experience: The muster was awful. Although it was forty minutes, it seemed like forever. The person manning the microphone kept saying that we would just have to stand there until everyone was quiet. Although, no one in our area was talking. We were tired, the heat was getting to us, and I was feeling claustrophobic. Since the Costa Concordia I think everyone understands the importance of the muster drill - but no one expected to be treated like a kindergartner being told to stand in the naughty corner.

Second Worst Experience: Getting back on the ship in the different ports. Carnival does not seem to have a handle on this. In Nassau the lines were about ten people wide and went from the front to the back of the ship and these lines barely moved. Even though there were two gangways with two machines on each to scan the cards, each gangway had just one machine scanning cards. It was pretty much the same in San Juan and St. Thomas.

I would book another Carnival cruise if I liked the itinerary. There were many things I liked about the Carnival Glory: The numerous spots inside with comfortable seats to sit and read, more than adequate amount of deck chair, the Serenity area for adults, the number of hot tubs, and the adult pool area at the back of the ship. We had great service from our cabin steward and the wait staff.
