Mediocre at best

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Boarding the ship took forever, the food on board was mediocre, the Serenity area and all the other hot tubs would be shut down early right as we would start enjoying them (Serenity hot tubs should be open all night), The virtual reality arcade machine stole my money, Arcade games should be included with the cruise, too many "private" events, the wifi didn't work in our room and was extremely ...

Food not as good

Carnival crew members are always polite and almost always happy and friendly. That’s a big plus, of course. The food wasn’t as good on this cruise, IMO. My husband used to really enjoy the filet and lobster on the elegant nights, but they have moved those two entrees to separate nights now. We ate in the main dining room every night, but the only thing I had that was really good was the crab ...

We chose this ship because we live close to port and it was a gift from our in-laws. I was trying to book from Miami on an MSC ship, but my in-laws wanted us to be closer to port. Everyone else was flying in, so we made the short drive. Two days before embarkation, I get a message from a facebook friend with a video of the Glory getting into an accident. Oh crap! We're not going to sail! By ...

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 ...

My bucket list contained cave tubing in Belize and this cruise was perfect for that. This was my third cruise and for my fiancé her first. We flew into New Orleans, spent the day before there and arrived at the cruise port early the next day due to our excitement. First off, the Cruise Director Cookie was so interactive the entire cruise. More than I ever saw in my other cruises. He will go far ...

I have only been on 17 cruises but this will be the most memorable. Had a good time on boat except when it came to the casino. Which is one of the reasons my husband and I go on carnival cruises. Our Daughter had offer that she had free drinks in casinos even though she doesn’t play in there very much so she booked her a room and went along too on this one with my grandson and a ...

this Was the fourth cruise with Carnival. All the others had been outstandingly enjoyable so was really looking forward to this one. Another couple that has traveled with us in the past was also with us on this one. They had never been to Nassau and none of us had spent enough time in Key West. The ship, although rather aged in cruise vessels, was very well maintained. Not much rust was apparent ...

First and foremost let's start with the embarkation process. This being my first carnival Cruise and my first cruise out of the Port of New Orleans I was pleasantly surpised how efficiently my party of six got through the process. I should note we had the 11:30am check in. When we arrived prior to our boarding time we were greeted with happy employees who were already pushing people through from ...

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 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 ...
