Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Carnival Glory - New England / Canada Foggy but Fun
Nice Ship, fairly clean, pleasant staff. The performers were decent and the main performance band was very good. The deli had really good sandwiches, the buffet was acceptable. We opted not to buy the Soda Club cards and were fine just drinking ice tea, lemonade, or water. The Steakhouse was AMAZING. The Sommelier was really good with the wines, I highly recommend the wine tasting class they offered. We did the "Your Time" dining, and the only drawback was that since you sit next to different people every night you miss some of the comraderie that develops with regular dinner mates. It seemed like there were too many bars, and that most of them were empty at night. The White Heat lounge had decent dance parties, but the Piano Bar was always empty when we went by and the guy playing there didn't seem to be that good.

We did a slot pool with fellow Cruise Critic members, and that was a blast. We only ended up with 38 cents above the $5 we all pitched in, but it was still fun to participate in.

The jacuzzis were not very hot, combined with the low temperatures it made them not very desirable.

The workout room was always packed in the mornings, and about half of the treadmills were out of commission. There was an elaborate grotto / waterfall jacuzzi room in the middle of the workout room that seemed a little out of place, but the equipment was at least better than what you get for most hotel workout rooms.

Keep in mind that this is Northern Canada. There was alot of fog at night, and the decks were usually too cold to hang out on. We went in mid-June, and sweatshirts and sweaters were much appreciated. One night the fog horn was blaring throughout the entire night and I was lucky to have brought earplugs with me. We had a balcony room and most nights you couldn't see anything due to fog. It was nice to be able to watch sailing into New York harbor at the end of the cruise and see the Statue of Liberty.
