We went with 3 dear close friends on a 5 day from New Orleans. We had an excellent time. Tony our Steward was excellent and took great care of us !! Food outlets and restaurants as well steak house were great, We loved Café Denis in Cozumel but stayed on ship in Progresso as its too far to go anywhere in our opinion. The folks at The Alchemy Bar especially EDUARDO were fabulous !! Great service and great fun !! Didn't care for the comedian but that's a personal taste. Many enjoyed the show. We would sail it again. The Love and Marriage show was fun but not LGBTQ friendly in terms of having a same sex couple up there. There were numerous gay couples on board, and a diverse crowd. Everyone got along and there were no issues on board except a late fire alarm that I didn't hear about thanks to a few too many XO Martinis. I love the glory and would sail it again. Its an easy ship to navigate and not too large. Its starting to show its age a touch but Im sure Carnival will refurbish it within a few years. We loved it and I recommend it. Read Less

I have sailed with carnival Previously on the Triumph for a 4 day cruise. This ship was extremely similar and I enjoyed it just as much if not more. I did love the serenity deck, but it also being the deck of camp ocean ( for kids) was a little confusing. Really enjoyed speciality meal and the steak house and of course, Guys burger. Main restaurant food was iffy . Cruise director was great and fun. Casino was good and never too crowded. Placed third in the slot tournament so that was fun. Our balcony room was fun and nice to have an outside area to sit and watch the ocean. So much to do and never enough time to do it. We loved our cabin steward. We had a great cruise , a great ship and all staff we encountered were very accommodating! Will definitely Sail again with carnival Read Less

My wife and I took this 7 night Caribbean cruise in February / 2019. Our boarding process was very fast compared to other cruises The ship has several attractions and places to have fun: table tennis, two water slides, swimming pools, plenty of deck chairs to sunbathe on the decks. The theater was never crowded at nightly shows. In two of the 7 nights, there was no show, but only entertainment by the Cruise Director, including situations in my view embarrassing, exposing the intimate life of couples. I'd rather have shows in place of these competitions. In the first morning I decided to order hot milk, but it was so hard to get it that the other days I gave up. Two employees serving on the deck 9 buffet told me they had no hot milk at all. Another employee who was collecting dishes told me that I could ask to warm up in the coffe shop. Then I went back to one of those who had denied the existence of hot milk and he took my cup with cold milk and brought hot and sparkling. Poor training and customer service In relation to food, in general it is varied and of great quality. The problem is the opening hours of the buffet for lunch (Deck 9). Each day it has a different time, if you are not aware of the brochure delivered in the cabin, you may miss the main meal. This also occurs during the stops, where you end up coming back later. After 2:30 pm depending on the day you only find pizza, sandwiches or cheeseburger to eat until dinner time (in my case it was 8:15 pm). They could leave at least some healthy and light food choices in this period, such as fruits and cookies. On other ships the buffet does not close all day, only decreasing the amount of food offerings. Information on stops, activities and excursions could be much better. I went to the excursion office to ask for hints and the attendant simply gave me a huge book, with hundreds of options for me to turn around, showing no interest in helping us choose. I did all the rides on my own, which was a lot cheaper than hiring in the ship. In regards to maps and information on the places the note is ZERO. They distribute a small map of each port, just to advertise for jewelry stores, without informing NOTHING about the place. An example: on Roatan Island, Honduras they distributed this useless map. At the end of the afternoon, almost at the time of our return we discovered that next to the port there is an excellent beach (Mahogany Beach), with all infrastructure (chairs, restaurants, shades) totally free. None of this was informed in the ship, so you have to pay the expensive excursions to go to other beaches. The constant warnings by the ship's sound system by the cruise director are very annoying and are often early in the morning, disrupting anyone who wants to sleep. Although it is a cruise leaving Miami, visiting Spanish-speaking countries, everything is in English, notices, leaflets etc. They could make versions of the most important instructions at least in other languages (as Disney parks do) TV works fine. Two channel with new movies, two for kids, one with CBSN and one with old B movies (this last always with a delay between image and sound). Read Less

This was my 3rd cruise on Carnival and while we had fun it just wasn't their best effort. The ship is tattered and torn, the entertainment was disappointing with the exception of the comedians they were pretty good but the other shows were pretty lame. The food started out pretty good but Guy's Burgers was a let down from my previous cruise, the dining room was tasty at first as well but the last 2 nights they dropped the ball I was disappointed with everything except the desserts they were good. The ship in general must be due for dry dock there was just a lot that seemed to be in need of repair, soft spots in the floor, uneven floors and quite a bit of rust. They seemed to be working on the ship at every port with crazy amounts of noise coming from unknown areas. This was my first time in a balcony room we were in 8381 which was under the dining area of the lido deck, it was noisy but not from the people something sounded like it was it was big and heavy rolling on the deck above at night, it was quite annoying at night which was the only time that it was heard. The room was ok, the TV remote worked randomly but then they offer nothing to watch. I get it they want you out spending money but really the TV sucked. The cabin Stewart only cleaned out room once a day which was quite a change from the past when they were in the room as much as I was. The ports were ok except for St. Thomas, 10 ships at the same time was just to many people we went to Megan's bay and I wasn't impressed we has 10 times the fun on the beach in Grand Turk right off the ship on the beach with a lot less people. In general I love cruises this was my 5th and I'm sorry to say it was probably the least fun of all of the others cruises. I'll probably go on Carnival again but I will put a lot more time into researching the age of the ship and as to how many ships will be in port at the same time. I do have to give them credit the embarkation and disembarkation was the best that I have ever witnessed, it was quick on and off. The Miami airport that is a nightmare I'll probably go with Canaveral or New Orleans next time. Read Less

Carnival Glory's Room service they are the happiest people always saying hello knew our names.Our rooms were clean old decorating style.The Punchliner Comedy shows are hilarious.They have them every night but 1. I was disappointed that it was too crowed and couldn't find a seat one time. The piano bar is fun. Putt putt golf was ok. Steam room is good. Guys burgers are the best burgers. I enjoy the Mexican bar.The deli and pizza is good. The buffet can be over crowed and hard to find seats.On sailing days for breakfast you can eat eggs and steak in dinning room.The dinning room food has a nice selection.I wish there was more mango,papaya and star fruit.In Cozumel I highly recommend San Gervasco ruins Edward tour guide is Mayan and very knowledgeable and funny. You go to the same Ports on all of cruise lines and they have the same excursions.The Balcony is more affordable on Glory. The musical shows are good the first time you see them but they have the same exact shows 2 years latter. In Belize the boat ride I wish there were life jackets.I highly recommend river boat excursion seeing monkeys, iguanas, bats manatee noses and nice size Lauranal Mayan ruins was impressive. In the spa I paid in advance they recharged my credit card after service and added gratitude,this was a hassle because I had to stand in a long line for a long time to pay off balance carnival should fix this.

We went on this cruise with friends. We had great meals at the steakhouse, platinum dining room for breakfast, and golden dining room for dinner. Our servers, Ronaldo, Wayan and Pira were awesome, making dinner fun and comfortable. We loved their song and dance shows. We went to many events on board including nightly shows in the amber room, they were all amazing! Singing, dancing, and comedy too. We ventured to the casino, comedy club and lido deck for movies. Staff were always helpful and friendly. The ports were nice and we loved our excursion in Cozumel with Sylvia taking us to the beach club and shopping. Tequila tasting and Fish pedicures! We returned to the ship early at each port to enjoy quiet time by the pool and in the hot tub. Jose was our server throughout the week, always having a drink ready to replace our empty glass, whether at the pool or in the comedy club. He always had recommendations and was a smiling face we enjoyed seeing each day. The Fun Squad was great, including Frankie the cruise director, CoCo, and JJ. We enjoyed trivia on several days with Milan. Always good for laughs. All and all, we had a great cruise and can't wait to do it again soon. Our only downfall was literally falling down. Three of the four in our party fell on the wet deck/floor after the rain. When the slippery when wet signs are out, be careful. Read Less

It was my first cruise in over 10 years, and the first ever for my husband and parents. We all loved it and can’t wait to go back. Cousin Cookie was an excellent cruise director and the entire ship staff went above and beyond. We felt like royalty. She isn’t one of the newer ships, but still has plenty of fun to offer everyone. My only negative, all be it small, was that the talent of the stage show singers wasn’t as good as I remember, but that could just be the casts we saw. Also, the breakfast buffet was the same thing every day, a bit of variety in that arena would have been nice. With that said, I’m not much of a breakfast person in general, so my opinion may be skewed. They did manage to get the playoff football games streamed to the deck as well so the football fans ever in Heaven. Read Less

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 less and less to eat that was worth eating. The housekeeping staff and Chef Chaing from Singapore were the only friendly individuals that we got to know. The cruise director was fun and awesome,but everyone else sucked. We always wait until on board to purchase shore excursions so to get a little bit more information and feedback from shore excursions staff. We got none of that just basically what you want to do? Plus the shore excursions in Amber Cove was not as they advertised it to be. Also our air conditioning in our room didn't stay cool....again a nonchalant attitude by customer care. Plus when they finally called me back about the room we got the gentleman customer service person was excuse my French an asshole. He was argumentative, kept saying we have recording of your booking....but that can't be so as I did not book it with a female agent that he kept referring too. The internet service was a waste of money. It will be a long long time before we book with Carnival again. It's all about money to them and less about customer service. The ports we great. The entertainment was good. We didn't care for the comedian Jeff Shaw as he wasn't funny Read Less

I chose the Carnival Glory because it was sailing to St. Thomas, Puerto Rico & Amber Cove for my birthday. Im a little disappointed in myself because I took a map and did not wake up for the greet & mingle party on Sunday. Sorry guys next time. While on board of course Guys burger was fantastic. However, I was disappointed in the seafood shack.....the fish was to greasy with to much batter, a big let down. I tried for two days to get to the pool but as expected no room & the kids was jumping in and splashing (unsupervised). At dinner time our table was non approachable and did not chat even after I told jokes ( I guess it wasn't funny) so we switched tables the next night. The comedy club was floored ( literally) standing room only & sitting on the steps. I really enjoyed John Dicrosta ( purchase his CD). All the comedians were good. I really didn't care for the self centered cruise director Dustin. Everything was about him & not enough about the fun as Carnival say. Could have been more shows and of course I lost at CLUE....but had fun looking for clues. My steward was great (Sang) and the dining room serves and I forget the Spa... The ports were beautiful especially St. Thomas were I found a great tour guide and explored the island and Beach. Puerto Plata was great ...the food....just great and I brought jewelry and Mamajuna...very tasty. Puerto Rico I visited the Barcardi factory were I had my first Mojito and poured my own bottle of liquor. Grand Turk didn't do much for me but fun in the sun is always good when you leaving 32 degree weather. Overall I had a great time in spite of the fish & Dustin. Read Less

So my hubby and I got married a week and a half ago and decided to celebrate while on the cruise. BIG MISTAKE! This is not our first cruise so we were excited to be embarking but not prepared for the day to day disappointment. We were sad to miss the formal dining due to getting our laundry back late. We requested for it to be pressed but when we finally received it it was crumpled in a bag all wrinkled. But of course they charged us for it. When we called to ask if they could iron it they told my husband, and I quote, "iron it yourself!" Since we missed the formal dining we decided to go see what they had in the buffet and literally everything was closed except the places that charged for food. We tried not to let that encounter sour our mood so we changed in to bathing suits and went up to the serenity deck where it's 21 and older, or so we thought. There were kids running all around the deck, laying in the hammocks, sitting in the hot tubs... it was ridiculous. We asked a crew member if they could tell the kids to go downstairs and the crew member just shrugged, laughed and walked away. We asked another crew member if they could get us a waiter so we could order drinks and they told us to go get it ourselves, they were busy. I understand it being Thanksgiving holiday week and children being on the ship but this was crazy. Kids running at full speed into people with canes. You couldn't walk anywhere without a child running into you or hitting you. You couldn't be in the casino without a child running around pressing everyone's buttons on the machines while you were literally playing. It was chaotic. All the while the employees just turned away and didn't do anything. We had various charges added to our account that we had to keep a watchful eye on every day. It all added up to over $300 of excursions that were for 3 people when it was only 2 of us in our cabin room. Why do they even bother to schedule anything if they are never on time???? Ugh I lost count of how many things we had to rearrange due to their lack of keeping time. There were only a handful of employees that were actually nice to people . Jess, Coco, JJ, and Milan were the ONLY ONES that were respectful. The rest of the crew needs retraining! Read Less
