We boarded the Carnival Glory in April, 2010, for an impromptu trip with friends. We did enjoy the Glory and had a staff eager to please. We were not trilled with the CD, but alas, we do live in the real world. Here is a brief summary:

Food: same as every other cruise; if you would like fine dining, go to the steakhouse, well worth it

Spa: attentive staff, regular facilities. Careful getting a pedicure, the chair had not been cleaned properly so when it was turned on a glob of brown/black stuff came out of the jets, my feet weren't going back in there!

Space: same problem as before, not enough space on Lido. They build bigger ships but don't figure in for the extra passengers so there is no seating in the buffet area or on Lido at any given time.

Camp Carnival: We had the misfortune of having a few bad counsellors this time around. We never witnessed them mistreating the children and no complaints were voiced from the children. The poor attitudes were directed to the parents on different occasions. We did no use it as much this time out of concern/annoyance.

Cabin: as expected, regular CCL ocean view cabin with attentive steward

Excursions: Maya Key in Roatan was definitely a welcome surprise. It was not crowded at all, facilities were lovely, and staff were great! Certainly a must if you're looking for a serene, beautiful stop with wildlife, food, a beach, and nice pool. The Pirate adventure at Grand Caymen was nice as well, a kid favorite.

All in all, this cruise met expectations with only a few snags that did not spoil our fun. We had great service in most places and the party came to us!

Cabin review: Ocean View

Ocean View room had a surprising amount of space, adequate closet space, typical restroom/shower

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
We enjoyed VIP check-in which went quite smoothly, parking is convenient (for a fee), Entrances are well marked and signs are easy to read.
