Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Glory Just O.K. not the Best
We have been on 15 Cruises and this one I would rate just O.K.

Embarkation was a nightmare. We arrived at the port around 11 a.m. there were maybe 300 people allready there. People kept checking in and the very large

check in area was standing room only by 12:30 p.m. and people were still getting off the ship. Finnaly by 1 p.m we started to board. The VIP lounge

passengers were forgotten and were boarded after 2 p.m. Lunch was cold due to the delay and the Hot Tubs and pools were not opened until 4 p.m. I had a bud light and it cost $7.07 which was the last one I drank on the ship.

The Glory is a real nice ship. It is the same as Freedom, Valor and Liberty.

The buffet area has cut staffing down to just a couple people. The tables and sofa type chairs are dirty all the time. We would sit for all our meals and the same tables and the crumbs on the floor the night before would still be there for breakfast the next morning. The coffee is different in every other location around the buffet. The hand sanitizers are always empty. Norovirus is coming to this ship very soon. (which this ship had October of this year)

The big screen t.v on Lido was great to watch movies under the stars at night but the two vertical lines down the screen was irritating. The ice cream was good though.

We have been on Carnival 7 times and we were not invited to the Past Guest Party due to a human error. They compensated us with drink coupons. Carnival is

now going to cut even more services as of January 1st. You room steward will only service you room one time per day (just in the mornings) and look forward to start paying for steaks and lobster in the (free) dining rooms.

All and all we loved our Cruise because you have to let all the little things go and enjoy yourself. We will cruise again on Carnival. We only paid $200 each. You can't beat that.
