Starting off on a positive note, it is evident the culture on this ship is focused around excellent service. Somewhere between 95-99% of the staff is incredible at their job. The cabin I stayed in seemed very reasonable, although the walls in(I think) all the cabins are very thin and a nightmare for light sleepers. The majority of the food I ate ranged from good to great quality. There’s a lot of tasty meals and snacks to be had. The on board entertainment was also a big highlight, there is plenty to do. Now one of my big cons comes in the form of organization. The ship was to leave at 3:30pm. We left at 6:30pm. It seemed the embarkation and debarkation was a you-know-what show. The onshore excursions were very unorganized. Our time would got cut every time and things listed to be on the package, weren’t. I was let down on all three locations. I’ll give you an example, we went to the Dolphinaris excursion in Cozumel (unlimited food and drink dolphin encounter or something of that nature), the gentlemen told us from the jump on the Pier that our excursion wasn’t ready, we waited, we waited, we signed a form, we handed in our ticket, we waited, we walked, and right before we got on the taxis they started to give us back our tickets to sign? Why didn’t we do that immediately? We lost so much time. Even if carnival has no control over this, they shouldn’t be handing us over to these clowns. Additionally, half the activities on this excursion got axed for slightly rough water. No kind of reimbursement. Onto me getting trapped in an elevator with a woman having a panic attack. On the night after leaving Cozumel, we were hitting some rough waves and I got stuck in an elevator on the NINTH floor, Carolina in guest services didn’t seem to care and suggested it wasn’t a big deal because I was only having 90 feet above the ground level for thirty minutes. Big ups to Carolina. Now with all this said, thanks to my loved ones and the convenience of the onboard activities/food, I had fun. But the Glory needs to address some of these problems going forward. Read Less

This was our first cruise. We were 4 ppl, friends around age 40. I was thinking before this first cruise holiday, that this will be a love at first sight or a hate forever experience. Turned out to be the first one :) LOVE We loved each moment. It was a bit difficult to get used to the 360° FUN atmosphere. We had several times questions like: it this allowed? can I take this here? can we sit down here? but after few days the cruising the fun message came through and I personally believe that everyone should try this at least once in the lifetime. I was not expecting such a professional package vacation as I prefer to travel by my own and organize everything by myself to accommodate my needs. Our cabin was a bit small for 4 ppl but we did not spend much time inside the cabin. On sea days we spent most of our time in the Serenity. We could find free seats anytime. Finding 4 sunbeds next to each other was a bigger challenge. Carnival HUB App chat function helps a lot here. For on board communication we also used the public phones calling back to our rooms. The food on board was OK, but not exceptional. On some days the Lido selection was better than the MDR. I did not like the sweets to much. Nothing to compare what you can get in Europe. Complimentary room service is very good especially when you want to save time on days with early docking. We did not book any excursions but organised some by ourselves. I would really encourage first time cruisers to read reviews and tips. We also had few very useful ones like to bring a small hanging organizer to keep your small stuffs in order. Read Less

I'm sure the cruise business is a tough one, and they need to make a buck where they can, but this ship is in need of a month or two in drydock to deal with some issues. #1 on my list would be air quality. Everyone I talked to was suffering from "cruise crud", basically lingering congestion in the lungs. I think the problem is mold spores, as my spotless shower turned black with mildew within 2 days (which did not get cleaned during the whole week). If a health and safety inspector is reading this, take some measurement of spore counts, I'm sure it's off the scale.They need to disinfect everything, change out the carpets and install/upgrade all ventilation systems including hepa filters. Bring allergy medicine and cough drops. Walking around, you occasionally hit little pockets of sewage smell too (6th floor mid-ship elevator lobby, for example). That can't be good. Hot tubs were not hot and closed down around midnight. The water-slide was being torn down while we were at sea. The gym equipment needs the pulleys oiled. The deck chairs need a good wash. The food in the buffet and dining room was bland, but the burgers, tacos and pizzas were quite good. The staff put on a good face, but their body language betrayed exhaustion and defeat (or else a lot of energy drinks!). Sad. The nightclub was pathetic, and the vibe was more like your cousin's wedding than a modern dance club (don't let the Carnival website fool you on that one!). But hey, lot's of people like that, so if that's your thing, enjoy. Engine noise permeates all ship life, and I often found it hard to hear the person sitting next to me during dinner in the main dining room. My favorite spot was the Alchemy bar. Those bartenders are true geniuses, and if you don't like what's on the menu, they'll make something up just for you. Best ever! The bed, pillows and blankets in my room were also some of the best I've slept on in any hotel, anywhere the the world. Really appreciated that. And the cabin steward recognized me in the hallways and greeted me by name. That was a nice touch. Thank you for that. But those damn ship announcements! ARGH!!! Shut! Up!! If I hear "What's going on?" one more time I'm going to throttle someone. Read Less

Ship - Carnival Glory Trip on October 24st 2015 Travel as a solo. Had Cabin # 8400 - Balcony state room This was my first of 2 cruise I booked with Carnival. This would be a 7 day cruise for the Caribbean. I providing my personal experience and observation of cruise experience with Carnival Glory. Based on all the experiences I had on the ship. All the staff members were nice and friendly. They really make sure everything's is working, and that you are having a good time. I would suggest checking in before you arrive at the ship, because the lines are LONG if you wait until the day of sailing. Once off the Gangway after getting the ok to board the ship. I proceeded directly onto the ship and went straight to the Lobby bar as my cruise first day ritual. I am smart as not to run up to the buffet right away. First thing I ordered after looking at the drink menu was a cold beer. Can of Heineken served with a frosted glass. So right away this was looking really good and the service from the bartender person was highly professional. Noticed the drink menu had many unique names to all of their drinks. Drinks you can get were wines, martinis, cocktails and many types of beer. After I was done my drink I then proceeded to tour the ship. I walked around the 5th floor going to the casino, bakery and all the bars on this floor. After that the announcement for the staterooms were ready. I proceeded to find my room of 8400 on the eight floor. On entry to room my observations was Cabin was nice, you can tell the ship was older but things looked very clean.The room was obviously old, but not too bad. Rooms on Glory and being with Carnival I noticed are larger then the cruise i had with NCL. In room my order of bottle of wine and Coke is delivered by my cabin steward. All of this was nicely wrapped in a nice presentation. Ship was very clean overall. Yes a little old but you have to respect a ship that is always going off on a cruise. Gets a beating a bit in the water at times. Good ship, just needs some upgrades. I really really enjoy and thought in the hallways for the cabins. The decor was really neat, with the lighting arrangement quite interesting. After this I went for lunch on the Libo deck. Buffet was busy at this time but good. Lots of variety. I got some of my food, noticed a big variety from chinese, deli, pizza and burgers as well. I ate on the pool deck and watched all the action. Activities- they had a ton. Never a dull minute on the ship. From mini golf, to life size chess, bingo, casino, night club, trivia, karaoke, spa, arcade for kids, pool, water slide, teens club... They don't lack in things to do on the ship. Carnival seems to get it right being the Fun Ships. You have a cruise director who does a rock out dance night in the Libo deck. Gets everyone going on you do a Congo line throughout the ship. Food on the ship well.There is food 24/7 so that's always a plus. The pizza spot is one of the 24-hour places and it's delicious. I have to stay on this ship they have the franchise of Guy’s Burgers. Tried it out, well about six times, the burgers are lots of fun. Really highly rated for sure to what people say. The semi-formal dinner food that is served every night is delicious and always worth it. I ate in the dining room first night for Anytime dining. Very amazing service, you get like 4 servers, well your host and different people. With each step of the way. Started with a salad. Then bought a bottle of wine. Server I had was amazing. I even ran into her the next morning and she greeted me by first name. Chicken something for main and a the signature Carnival Chocolate melting Cake. So good. Also had a glass of red wine. Selections of wine is good. If you order a bottle and not finish, they put it in the fridge and you can have it later during the week. Other parts of ship for eating, buffet, well lines were abit long on this ship. Selection of buffet is not bad. If you like eating Denny’s food then your good here. But good selection and a really good salad bar. Also there is a Chinese food in the afternoon. Room service had a good selection and was fast. Way different to my experience on the Carnival Victory. Casino entertainment is small, there is smoking there, being a non smoker, it was hard, but had fun. They fill you up on drinks all you want. so the fun keeps going. I play some Craps and roulette as well. The casino staff were very helpful and even helped me to one of the machines when i was drinking too much so i could continue my fun.The service overall was good. My cabin steward was excellent and very attentive. The food was good- I would have liked more healthy options. There was always a lot of activities to choose from and most were good. The main pool deck was VERY small & the pool smaller considering the ship has 3000 passengers, it should be MUCH bigger.But overall this was a good cruise, fun time & good food & people. So a few notes to mention. I enjoyed the towel animals on my bed each night Overall I rate my time on the Carnival Glory as amazing. I could go on with more things in detail. I will be writing separate reviews of the excursions by Carnival. So would i said Carnival again, yes. Would I sail on Victory again, yes. Only if i had to though, so personally with a new cruise just looking for a new experience. Doing a different ship always makes the difference in experience. The whole experience was great and I have no complaints. The staff, food, shows and overall activity were just great. I would for sure do another Carnival Cruise again one day.  Overall I recommend anyone of any age looking to cruise to consider doing one on the Carnival Glory. Thanks again. Read Less

As a first time cruise my fiancé and I had a great time, our cabin was an interior upper cabin located in the middle of the ship which was convienient to get to either the front or back of the ship. I hear midship is great for first time cruisers as you don't feel the movement as much. The cabin was spacious for two people always cleaned, we were very lucky to get a very friendly staff member named Marut from Thailand he was extremely helpful during our stay. During our trip we had two "at sea days" but not to worry because everyday you have an itinerary of all the events going on, therefore you don't have to worry about asking Around or missing any of the events. I suggest brining a highlight to highlight the events your interested in. I also suggest if booking an excursion doing it on the island, trust me you'll be bombarded by tourist offering you better deals then on the ship. We participated in a snorkling tour through exotic Eco adventures which cost us about $50.00 per person (booking on board was about $89.00 per person) the tour guides that assisted us were very friendly you can tell they enjoy their jobs Karim and Alicia were great! Last but not least dinner time at 8:15 was the best choice because you have the Chance to come back on board after the excursion and shower and have the amazing dinner, the dinner was delicious and the staff was great they served small portions which was fine if your still hungry you can ask for a second entree or appetizers, keep in mind your room service and dinner staff are always the same so be nice to them because the really long and hard.

Pros Serenity was great - quiet and comfy. Entertainers on 5 casino bar all good - bit loud at times. Piano bar excellent- disco was a dud:(. Spa - free seminars for women had good presentation and info. Rooms were clean and larger than other ships. Service in rooms was great and also in dining room. Burgers were outstanding! My friend ate there every day! Excursion in Cozumel - regatta sailing race was the chance of a lifetime to experience! Also Roatan glass bottom boat tour / sea and see with Julio was exceptional! Cons No singles organized events - attended one on itinerary- did not know who was single as there were couples /children there - asked staff and they were unaware of event (colours on 3). Info on board - No temperature /weather on tv - should be daily with time on channel with ship position and no Canadian news or weather - lots of Canadians on board.....Free internet apps did not work all week.... No anytime dining available and early was too early and late turned out to be too late:(. Big lineup last day to just book shuttle to airport - waited an hour! Should be able to book online like excursion?!   Read Less

This was my 25th cruise and 8th with Carnival. Just returned from a 7 night cruise on the Carnival Glory and this was by far the worst cruise I have ever experienced. I have medical needs and medical needs letters were sent before went set sail and given to the restaurant when I arrived as instructed which explained what I could eat. My diet were not followed, the restaurant only gave me the option to pay $20 per day more and get meat from the steakhouse. The American Table plan is so limited, our table of eight joked that this was the only cruise that we have been on to lose weight and I have never ate so many hamburgers (for Guy's Burger Joint) in one week than I have in the last year. The late night buffet has the same hot dog w/chili, bad ham and cheese sandwiches and tough chicken sandwiches every night no change in menu in 7 nights. Almost no entertainment, comedians were below average and the only highlight was the piano bar entertainment. We did not even get good cabin service. Th e room steward only came at night, never during daylight hours. Also, no towel animals and only a few nights did I get the chocolates on the pillow (well never of the pillow, but on the end of the bed or in the bathroom). I hope this is just the Glory and not a reflection of all of the Carnival line. My niece took the same cruise 2 weeks before me and had the same experience (did not tell me she had a bad time until I returned). Read Less

This was my second sailing on the Carnival Glory. I had previously sailed in 2009, with same itinerary, with the exception of Belize. We flew in to Miami airport, via Atlanta the day before. We stayed the night at the Ramada Miami Airport North, which is actually in Hialeah. It was good location, because the Westland Mall was right across the freeway from it. There was also a Wal-Mart and Target nearby. Embarkation: We took a cab from the rental car center to the port, which costs $25, including toll fee for the freeway. We got on the boat, after waiting an hour in the VIP lounge, checking in and waiting for our sail and sign cards to be delivered from another area. All these other people were coming in and leaving with their keys, rather quickly. I don't know what the hold up was. One guy who had been there for ten minutes, was about to scream at the people. I was like, "Dude..." Room: We were in cabin 8343, with a balcony. When we got to our cabin, our luggage was there, waiting for us. We booked our excursions through the TV. The balcony is worth the price of admission. It was pretty quiet room, didn't hear neighbors or the upstairs shuffles much. The zipper on the blanket on the couch bed, kept scratching my arm during the night, so I finally had to pull the sheet up and tuck it over it. The mirror is missing piece in the bathroom. The toilet button had to be pushed three or four times before it would flush. The curtains had holes in it, letting the sunshine in. The safety briefing: was at 4 PM. For the handicapped people, such as my mom, we had to sit in the Golden Dining Room during the briefing. They let us out while the briefing is still going on, so we can use the elevators. Lido Deck Buffet: I tried a bit of every station. I would recommend the pepperoni pizza, the cobblers from the Comfort Kitchen, the fried Mac and Cheese from the Comfort Kitchen, the fish and chips, and the chicken tacos from the Blue Iguana. Dining Room: We were at table 376, in the Platinum Dining Room, which is a table for 4. I definitely recommend the fruit plates, the chilled fruit soups, chocolate/raspberry/vanilla cake, the Bitter and Blanc, and the fried shrimp. Our waiters in the dining room, Leroy, Ellen, and Senet were great and we had quick service throughout the week. The food I got, which was supposed to be cold was cold, and the food I got that was supposed to be warm was warm. The waiters sang to "That's Amore," danced to "Gangnam Style" twice, and sang "Leavin' on a Fun Ship." We ate lunch in the Golden Dining room, because we had a free drink voucher, with our VIP status. I would recommend the vacation sundae (chocolate and vanilla ice cream, raspberry sauce, and macaroons). We went to the punchliner brunch in the Platinum Dining Room. On our way there, as I walking into the elevator, the door tried to close and smacked my right arm and my knuckles on my left hand. For lunch, I had the Parpadalle Pasta and Churros with chocolate dipping sauce. The waiter at the service station next to me dropped some glasses and splashed me with ice and cold water. I also got chocolate sauce all over my shirt and had to go change. Jerry Goodspeed, the ventriloquist, performed again for about 5 minutes. Movies/ Games: They didn't show hardly any new movies in the room. They showed a lot of old movies and concerts on Costa Maya day and on the seaside theater. I went and got some popcorn on the lido deck. It was pretty stale and needed some butter. Dad played Turbo Trivia, where they have 2 choices as an answer to the question, and the people who choose the wrong answer are eliminated after every question. We watched 60 Seconds or Less, which is Carnival's version of Minute to Win It. It involves balancing pencils, stacking cups, building plate and cup towers, etc. We watched Family Feud. We watched "The Game of Love," we had missed, on TV. We went and saw Hasbro: The Game Show twice. They played Sorry Sliders, Simon Flashers, Yahtzee Bowling, and Operation: Sam Dunk. A young Asian child picked the Battleship card for his prize and when the cruise director asked him why he picked that card, he said, "To fight the Japanese." Josh was speechless and kept laughing. We attend the Ultimate Mind Game Challenge trivia and I got 8 out of 20. We helped team 5 during the Scavenger Hunt. It was really funny. I gave them a trivia sheet and Dad gave them his shirt and his belt. The ship needs more morning and late afternoon activities for people who aren't night owls. Cruise Director/Entertainment Staff: Most of the entertainment staff were funny. We went to the Fun Ashore Fun Aboard talk with Josh and the Shopping Talk with Jay. We went to the Q & A with the cruise director, Josh. Mom asked him what the crew does for fun aboard and Dad asked him if all the captains are Italian. Comedians: we saw the family friendly comedy show of Eddie Clark. He was alright, a lot of asking the audience questions. One couple, named Fernando and Fernanda, arrived late to the show. He acted like a waiter, putting a napkin on his wrist and ushering them to the front of the lounge, where he gave them a free drink each. We saw the family friendly comedy show of Butch Bradley. He reminded me of Conan O'Brien. We watched both the family friendly comedy shows of Al Romero, a Cuban-American, and Jerry Goodspeed, a ventriloquist. I thought Romero's show was a bit raunchy and I'm not the biggest fan of Ventriloquists. We had three ships in a row with a ventriloquist, and I am sick of them. Playlist Productions: The Playlist Production show, "Motor City," in the Amber Palace, featured the songs of Motown. The performers taught us a dance to do, during the song, "Rockin' Robin." "Latin Nights" featured the music of Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, etc. "Divas" featured the music of Britney, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. One night they did encores of Motor City and Latin Nights, so we went to see the comedians instead. Cozumel: This was my fourth time, being here. We were docked with the Carnival Triumph, Liberty of the Seas, and Mariner of the Seas. We walked around the port shops, collecting the freebies from Mom's coupons in her Fun Finds book, which costs $25. Mostly free items, such as pendants, earrings, refrigerator magnets, and a drawstring bag. We got the new Disney t-shirts at the Del Sol. We walked downtown, which is about 2 miles. We went to the new Punta Lagosta Mall, where the Carnival Legend and Jewel of the Seas were docked. All of the vendors kept yelling out to Mom, they had "free parking" for her wheelchair in their shops. We took a taxi back to port, which costs $7. Costa Maya: We were supposed to dock in Costa Maya, Mexico, but the weather was so bad, they couldn't dock because of high winds and waves going over the dock. We each got refunded $11.33 for the country taxes and Dad got refunded for his shore excursion. It was a surprise day at Sea! Shops: We walked around the shops twice. Mom got some postcards (5 for $2) and necklaces ($10). After she opened one of the necklaces, she noticed the chain was broken and had to return it to the gift shop. We went to the shops on the last sea day and got 2 for $20 t-shirts, one for Grand Cayman and one for Cozumel. While I was in the shop, I tripped over the wheels of one of the displays and almost fell forward towards the wall of $10 necklaces. Mahogany Bay, Roatan: This was my second time being here. Last time we were there, we went on the Gumbalimba Park and Jolly Roger Catamaran tour. We were here from 7 AM to 3 PM. We went on the "Best of the Island Tour," which had a late start because the tour guide was late, due to the fact his brother sprained his wrist. We drove east on the island to The View, which included arts and craft vendors. We drove to Punta Gorda, where some kids were holding a big snake on a hook, they planned to cook and eat. There was a museum there, where the locals danced for us. We drove to the West Bay and went through the shops and stood on the beach. Throughout the tour, we saw many free roaming dogs sleeping by the street. The tour guide said, the locals are supposed to let them roam free after they grow to full size, which is very sad. After the tour, we walked through the port shops. Dad bought a wooden bench, carved with homes and trees, and mom bought a Mahogany wooden carved bowl. Ship Mishaps: Most of the time it was sunny, with a high of 86 degrees. It wasn't until we got to Costa Maya, we had high winds. The captain made an announcement in Roatan about high winds and having to shut off the outer decks. After our nap, Dad came back to our room and asked if we had felt the ship list again (tipping to a certain angle) like it had done on the Liberty cruise last year. We said no, wondering why there wasn't an announcement from the Cruise Director about it, like Butch had done on the Liberty. When we got back to the 8Th floor after tendering in from Grand Cayman, the hall and our room smelled like Gasoline. We opened our balcony door and let it air out for a few moments. We found out later, the aft pool had had a pipe burst and it flooded some of the cabins on deck 8. The people we talked to, said, "Our room is now the pool." Mom was sitting in her wheelchair under the fog machine on the balcony in the Amber Palace during show time. Little pieces of plastic or wax kept landing on her arms and burning her skin. She moved back a row and after the show, she went to Guest Services and complained, so nobody else would get burned. Grand Cayman: After breakfast, we went the shopping talk for Grand Cayman and got our tender stickers. If you attend the shopping talk, you are placed on an earlier tender and you get a free charm for your Diamonds International charm bracelet. We tendered into Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. We were out shopping from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Mom used her coupons from the Fun Finds book and got some bamboo socks (2 pairs for $20), free bracelet charms, free refrigerator magnets, and a tanzanite necklace. Dad went on the "Coral Gables and Stingray Sandbar Tour" at 1:00 PM, where he got to snorkel and swim with the stingrays. Debarkation: We got off the boat after eating breakfast, a half hour after having our zone number called. We were in port with Carnival Valor and Carnival Breeze. We took the Alamo shuttle to get our rental car. Read Less

Embarkation: Because my Mom uses a wheelchair to travel, we didn't have to wait long to board. The muster drill is better on this ship because they don't make you bring all your life preservers with you to the drill. Entertainment: The comedy ventriloquist wasn't funny, so we left that show early. I enjoyed the Just Rock show the most. We also went to Game Show Mania, Liar's Club, and Karaoke. We only saw one of the comedians, named Carl Strong, and he was hilarious. In Room Movies: They were showing Watchmen, My Life in Ruins, Monsters vs Aliens, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, New in Town. Maintenance: In some of the restrooms on the ship, the toilet didn't have enough pressure to flush. Red Sail Restaurant: we could usually find a table in the same section every morning. They have really good Chocolate muffins and omelets. We tried the fish and chips bar and the grille as well. We didn't care for the chocolate buffet. Don't leave your trays with your drinks and silverware on them unattended as they might be snatched by the servers before you are finished. Golden Dining Room: We were at a table for 9 and my Dad was the only male at the table. Our head waitress was really good and took the time to learn all our names. I really enjoyed penne mariscos, farfalle with turkey and peas, spaghetti carbonara, chilled fruit soups, fruit plates, creme brulee, sweet and sour shrimp, caesar salad, the creme cake with chocolate and raspberry sorbet, souffle, crab cakes, fettucini, and warm chocolate melting cake. We didn't care for the filet mignon, the tom turkey with pumpkin hash, or the chicken sicilian style Debarkation: We were in zone 17. We ate breakfast and were off the ship by 10 AM Read Less
