Ship Facts: Carnival Glory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Glory Deck Plans
Great staff, clean boat, but there are better options.
We cruised on the Glory April 17 -24th with a group of about 40 people we all booked with. We ranged in age from 12 to 49 and had a nice time on this boat. I'll be very brief:

Our cabins were very nice. We had two outside balconies and our room steward was as good or better than any we've encountered. My three teen boys are mini tornadoes and somehow Roy kept right on top of everything. Nice, immaculate rooms with surprisingly large bathrooms and showers.

Food was good in the buffet but the breakfast menu didn't vary much. Everyone said the omelets were very good but I didn't feel like standing in line for twenty minutes to get one. The pizza on the back of the boat was good and the burgers were also good, but again, be ready to stand in line. We went during kids April vacation so the boat was packed. The formal dining at night was excellent with a great staff and really, really good food. My one complaint would be the lines. Sometimes, you'd see a gi-normous line for burgers and there'd be one poor guy cooking and serving them all. Other times, the buffet lines would be huge and the burger grills would be closed.

Kids activities. This was major disappointment for us. Volleyball, basketball, mini-golf, ping pong, you name all closed at 5 PM! We found this to be different from other lines we'd been on a a deal breaker when it came to choosing the glory again. The kids clubs stayed open and our kids liked them, but they got old pretty fast. Overall, the kids had a good time, but as a group, we all wondered why the sports activities ended so early.

Drinks are about $7.50 plus and beers are in the $5.00 range. We bought drink coupons and used them but they really don't save you any money because you alway get charged the difference. Friends in our group used rumrunner kits to get rum and vodka on board and were successful.

We had fun. The staff was great, but there are probably better choices.
