Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Not your typical Carnival Cruise
We've been on several other Carnival Cruises and the atmosphere on this one was a little different than in the past. The cruise crowd itself is kind of mellow, which isn't a bad thing, and there didn't seem to be a ton of activities on board, either at the days at sea or when at the ports.

Here are some of the pros and cons about our cruise:

PROS: Check in was very easy (half hour from start to finish - we arrived at 12:50pm on embarkation day) Won a dinner for two at the steakhouse restaurant at the repeat cruiser reception. We rarely heard from the cruise director (George/Jorge) over the intercom system. This could be a pro or a con. On some Carnival cruises, the cruise director is constantly getting on the PA system announcing stuff.

CONS: Toilets were not working on our first "day at sea" Arrival for dinner the first night was chaotic - there's not a lot of room at the entrance to the Platinum Dining Room so it was a mob scene. It was cold (& rainy in Halifax) but that by no means is Carnival's fault. The ship is confusing - the levels don't go from forward to aft. Make sure you are on level 5 to get from one end of the ship to the other. Bruce at the piano bar played the same songs every night and did not let people get up and sing solos - it was pretty much his show.

All in all, a decent cruise but I'll probably stick to the Caribbean for the future!
