Carnival Glory Cruise Review by mesaronz: It's the last dance
Overall Member Rating
It's the last dance
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Well, we're probably the "odd couple" but we were very, very disappointed with this particular cruise.
We prefer the casual mode of travel. After years of professional life it's nice to be able to kick back and travel light. However, on the Glory, this proved more of a challenge than a comfort.
We usually enjoy meals on the Lido deck but, from our experience of this trip, the food offered on the Lido deck was colorful but, for the most part, lacked flavor. Plates were dirty and had encrusted food on them. When I brought these concerns to the Food and Beverage Manager's attention his response was a "public faced" apology...blah, blah, blah....he never addressed or corrected the problem.
Found the design of the ship to be not too "user friendly"...all in all, think it's the last Carnival has seen of us...they don't ever recognize the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) the only service animals permitted are for the visually impaired...ho hum.... Carnival nor More any other cruise line is obligated to honor the ADA since they are not registered in the USA...BUT - their primary market is from the USA.
Found it very interesting also that Carnival now no longer presents "Adult" shows in the theater but, rather, has now put them in club venues where from our perspective, it is implied that you should buy drinks to enjoy the shows.
Found guest services less than helpful on the Glory. However, our hats are off to Jorge, the Cruise Director! Less

Cabin review: 8E9284 Balcony
Cabin 9284 - Balcony - standard, clean, very convenient to Lido Deck with no worry of "noise overspill". However, do not book this cabin for the Canadian itinerary. Our fault for not researching this prior to booking but it's not an itinerary for which having a balcony is an advantage...better to save the money and reserve an unobstructed ocean view for this itinerary.Read All Balcony (8E) Reviews >>
