Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Glory time
The cruise was very nice overall. The Glory had a new program to test using a "comedy club" program. We traveled with 12 people in 5 cabins, and everyone loved the comedians. They were a real high point on the ship.

I called Carnival before this cruise (our 9th) to see if the cabins had clocks. They told me yes, so I was disappointed to see that there were NO CLOCKS IN THE CABINS. It makes it hard to guess the times especilly in an inside room. Also, there are no outlets in the bathroom (no nightlight options). The beds were very comfortable, and the service on board was adequate. I do think that the new automatic tipping is far less awkward, but I feel some of the staff aren't working as hard to please as before.

The ship was pretty clean in most areas, but someone had thrown up on the miniature golf course on the first day, and it remained there for the rest of the cruise.

The Glory has hired Funtastic Fun Dude (Jeff) as the warm up act (he also runs some contests/ trivia on board). We all felt that he tried too hard, and while nice enough wasn't funny. He could talk very fast, and maybe should try being an auctioneer for the onboard art auction instead.
