Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Carnival keeps cutting corners and offering less each time we travel

My wife and I LOVE cruising and have been on many Carnival Ships as well as other cruise lines.

The latest was the Carnival Glory (May 24-May 31 2014) and we were amazed at how things have changed. We used to receive a nice assortment of amenities in our cabin bathroom, however this time we received 3 bars of round soap ... WOW how generous !

We also noticed that the BAR BLUE cigar lounge no longer has Jazz music, which we always looked forward to ... relaxing with a nice cigar and listen to a great 3 piece group of musicians.

We also noticed that the stage show in the main theater was comprised of 4 women and 4 men, who put on a marvelous show but we wondered where the larger ensembles of years past have gone.

The selection of foods on both the buffet and in the dining room have been reduced significantly and there is no longer that awesome midnight buffet with all of the carved fruits and vegetables to enjoy. Also the days of complimentary espresso or cappuccino with breakfast and or dinner in the dining room has been eliminated as well, for a charged service.

We chose our cruises based on itinerary and or our schedules, however Carnival is making us look seriously at their competition for the services we have come to expect from a cruise line.

Don't get me wrong ... we had a wonderful time despite the continued penny pinching adjustments of Carnival's Management decisions.
