Carnival Glory Review March 31, 2013

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Hotel Info: Sailing out of Port of Miami, arrived the day before, and prefer Fort Lauderdale. When in Fort Lauderdale, we stayed at the Gallery One Doubletree - it was a GREAT location for the price. Right next to a great mall and a short walk to the beach!

Ship Info:

Carnival Glory received the Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades and we loved all of them. People in our party said they preferred the Liberty better, but to me it was a toss up.

Activities/Entertainment:

There were cut backs for sure with the stage shows, but the comedy acts are always hilarious. Due to the week we cruised there were a million kids on the deck and in the pools at all times - don't know if we would do a cruise this time of the year again. Sea days are always fun trying to find a deck chair, but the deck chair police were out putting stickers on empty seats on what time "place holders" could be moved.

Embarkation/Disembarkation

Faster to the Fun - purchase it for More sure - worth every penny! We were the first ones on the ship at noon! As for leaving the ship at the end of the voyage, the process was very smooth and very organized.

Service:

Justee our room steward was the BEST - he was great! Late dining with Alex and Csaba(aka Chubby) - very memorable and the BEST service!

Dining

The food was below what we had had just a year earlier. With the addition of Fun Ship 2.0, they seem to cut back on availability. Guy's Burger Joint was GREAT. The Blue Iguana Catina was real nice, but had very limited hours. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Glory Balcony Upper 6450

Room 6450 is the best room for an 8A balcony your money can buy! HUGE balcony, no sofa, but who cares!

Port and Shore Excursions


We did the Pirates, Birds and Monkeys of the Caribbean tour and it was AMAZING! I highly recommend this tour for anyone, any age! The park is beautiful and the pictures we got with the animals will be memories forever!
