"This was my fifth Carnival cruise and it will be the last. Two days before we left for the cruise, I received a call to upgrade to a grand suite from a balcony room for $800, and I took it since there were 4 people..."Read More

This is one of the worst ships I’ve been on! This was my 2nd Carnival Cruise. I will stick with NCL or RC from now on. This was a family cruise so we had 7 ppl with 2 staterooms. The activities were good and we especially liked the Dr Seuss breakfast. Cookie the cruise director was hilarious and likable. The shows were good. The dining room staff were excellent and our cabin steward ...

Food in the dining room was excellent as usual, but the buffet was not nearly as good as it usually is. Desserts on the buffet were tasteless and lacked variety. Cookies were hard as rocks. Breakfast at the buffet was delicious, but lunch and dinner were awful. There were about 5 choices for each meal. Room stewards were friendly and the service was wonderful. They kept the room spotless. ...

I cruise about once per year (Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean), and the Glory was my least favorite cruise. We sail with children, therefore always sail during "busy" times when school is out. The good parts were: * The staff were very friendly, although seemed overwhelmed at times. * Carnival has the best comedy clubs of any line. Other lines may have a comedy club once or twice ...

We booked a group of about 26 to go on this cruise. The majority of us are avid Carnival customers and sail annually. The food, service, cleanliness, and attitudes of some of the staff members made this a terrible experience! Never doing Carnival again! I had made a reservation at the steakhouse but cancelled it because my granddaughter & her parents jumped on onboard last minute. The steakhouse ...

So you think a cruise sounds great. So did I. Well, here is assessment for you to make an informed decision. First, the staff is amazingly friendly. Truly nice people looking to make your trip as good as pleasant as possible. We had 5-8 ft seas and high winds most of the way to Yucatán. It really wasn’t a bad ride at all. Don’t worry about the waves unless 10ft plus. Here’s where the ...

We booked this trip as a weekend getaway for a bachelorette trip. It started off terribly. Trying to park at the New Orleans port was a complete disaster. We arrived before we were supposed to board but spent almost an hour and a half in standstill traffic.. then to be told we had to turn around and go to overflow parking and take a shuttle. We were treated unkindly and yelled at- all while just ...

We have travelled on Many Cruises(25+) over the years and was quite disappointed with the Glory, very out dated and the staff had great difficulty with English, this is the only cruise I had ever been on where It was so difficult to communicate with the staff, our cabin Steward (Dana) she was a pleasure to see each day, very pleasant, cheerful and very efficient, the dining room staff were ...

We were very disappointed in the room we had while on board. I booked this trip in July of 2018. The room we received did not match the description of what the Carnival agent told us it would be. We spoke to customer care and they acted like it wasn't a big deal. They emailed corporate, no response back until the 7th day of the trip. The food selection on buffet was not good. Everyday you found ...

One thing that works on this ship is the a/c! We love the Punchliner comedy but it was so cold in the Ebony Cabaret you could hang meat in there, we could not bear to stay in there for the comedians. Room service was very late or non-existant! Saw our room steward, Antonio, on first day and never for the rest of the cruise. MDR menus seem to be scaled way down with fewer options. Buffet seemed ...

We live near the port of Miam, and we decided to do a family cruise so price was important. The ship is old and looks it. It’s not taken care of. We saw ants in the buffet dining room our cabin smelled like sewage the first day. We asked the steward to see why he could do about it, it seemed like he just cleaned it because by the middle of the trip it smelled like sewage again. The cruise ...
