Picked this cruise for the excursions and the fact I had been on the Glory before. I didn’t use the work-out facilities or go to shows. I just love to cruise and hang out on my balcony and watch the ocean. I LOVE the food, the staff, the excursions etc. Im never quite sure when I see others give a bad review. This is my 7th cruise and my 6th with Carnival. I have even had excursions cancelled (usually for weather) but for me, a day cruising is better than a day at work! So I would advise for people to research on their own and take reviews (even mine-good or bad) with a grain of salt. Good luck in your search. While I enjoy Carnival, Disney may be more fun for children. (I’ve been in Disney as well). In my opinion there is a cruise line for everyone. Enjoy! Read Less

This was our first cruise, so you know we were excited! There were a few issues, but over all I had a nice time. That doesn't mean I'm not shopping for a different cruise line for the future. As I was reading the others posts about Glory November 2018, I was agreeing with everything that was said. The amount of children under 12 running around unsupervised was ridiculous. The last night, there were a hot tub filled with kids being loud and obnoxious. We even witnessed arms swinging as kids were shouting at each other. That went on for about 10 minutes before a worker stepped in. Other times, you had to watch out that a child didn't run by you as you were carrying your plate of food. I agree the casino was generous in the beginning, the food was ok, I wish there were other options for after 6pm to eat at. We even were asked to move out of our assigned seats on the 3rd night in the dining room so another family could sit there. Room service was extremely slow and when they come, there is a slight tap on the door. We missed them a few times. I would recommend they add a smoking area in the adult area, so that adults could just stay up there secluded from most of the kids. There are 2 outside smoking areas, but so crowded Our room was comfy, clean , and our steward was so friendly. We had an Interior and I didn't hvae any issues with motion sickness as I assumed I would. Read Less

For me, this cruise was all about being on the cruise on my 50th birthday. That being said, it was an amazing cruise and also just happened to be on the Glory, which is the first cruise ship I ever cruised on. Being my 50th cruise, I definitely splurged on my cabin. We had the Captain’s Suite, and had two different cocktail parties on the huge balcony. Our cabin steward, Sang, was great. He went above and beyond getting the different glasses and ice bucket’s and what not for my cocktail parties. The ship itself is seeming a little older. It doesn’t seem like Carnaval is keeping up their ships the way they used to. That is a little disheartening, since I really only cruise on Carnival and would like them to quit cutting corners. It seems like they just cut a lot of corners now to save money on different things. I was shocked to learn that my Stewart had 33 cabins to deal with. I guess that’s why now they ask you if you want to service once or twice a day. I realize carnival is probably the least expensive cruise line, but it would be nice if they had the same standard they had 10 years ago when I started cruising. That being said, overall, my cruise was amazing. The dinners were great in the dining room, and the night we had in the steakhouse was absolutely amazing. Read Less

Have been on worse ships, this was outdated but we found it clean, funky smells in certain areas - (like in most ships) Lido deck, food selection not inviting. Day after day the same selections. Guys Burger and BBQ refreshing. Known for a younger crowd with families as it is affordable. Overall, we don't have complaints. Definately needs better elevator service and deportation was very disorganized. We enjoyed our time and relaxed. We are older so we dictated what and when we wanted to do things! I am in a wheelchair and getting on and off the ship from beginning to end was difficult. The ramps are too short and everything and everyone has to stop and wait on you. I did not like this, embarrassing and everyone is in a hurry and I got a lot of dirty looks and sighs! Until you have to be in a wheelchair you don't understand its inconvenience. I assume parents with strollers had the same issues! You just have to smile and apologize for inconviencing them! Would go again Read Less

I thought the cruise was amazing! I’ll agree Carnival could improve the buffet. Dining room was great, Guys burgers are amazing. The staff work there tails off and keep a smile on their faces and always willing to go the extra mile. Our wait staff was amazing Walter was fantastic! The cruise director is fun and keeps the party going day and night! The ports were so fun! I believe you make your own fun and do the things you enjoy and if you stick to that your trip will be amazing too. The ship is immaculate, there constantly cleaning. My only complaint would be the deli where the sandwiches are superb, the problem is the line is long and never movers by no fault of the poor guy behind the counter since there’s only one guy back there you need 3 - 4 people working back there. Also maybe keep the deli, Guys and the barbecue place open longer. But for the most part.we were 9 people on the cruise and we all had an amazing time!!!! We can’t wait to cruise Carnival again!

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

I have been on several cruises with carnival in the past, and was expecting the same level of quality as my previous cruises. Boy was I in for a shock. For starters the ship was overrun with kids they were in the adult only section, stealing candy from the shop on the 5th floor, and running full speed into guests. I had dinner at the steakhouse and the quality of the meat was not worth the 38 per person that I had paid. On several occasions I was charged for excursions that I did not order. Every single time listed for activities on their hub started late. The only event that started early was the bag pickup that caused several guests on my floor to be unable to have their bags picked up for the disembarkation. I ordered room service which ended up taking over an hour to receive and causing me and my wife to miss the lip sync battle. My room was extremely hot for the duration of the cruise. The internet package is so slow as to be not functional. Read Less

Love ANY Carnival Cruise. I have been on the Glory many times and never had any issues. Always choose an interior cabin since I am only in there to sleep. Too much going on to hang out in the cabin. Staff are very friendly and they love to tell you about where they are from. Embarkation/debarkation were a breeze. Only did two excursions since I have been to the islands multiple times. Did the lift to Paradise Point in St Thomas. Great place for the views and great food and drinks. Free wi-fi and spent the afternoon relaxing there as the rain poured down. Went on the Monkey Jungle excursion in DR. That was an awesome experience and will plan on doing it again the next time I am there. A long drive to get there but will worth it and the tour guide kept us entertained the whole time. Read Less

Positive....the crew and staff......Negative, everything else, interior fabrics such as curtains, chair covers on their last leg, entertainment is high school level, food is hit and miss, no where to eat after 11pm except pizza or room service. Im not a party person however I don't sleep well and often just want something to drink or snack on and there is no place to go for that. I was on this ship Nov 2017 and than again Nov 2018 and nothing and I mean absolutely nothing has changed in the way of onboard games, activities and shows (only the singers and dancers). I was so disappointed. Its like paying to see the same movie over and over and over, nothing to new to look forward to. The Hasbro, Clue, Lip Sync are so lame (Im 67) and to play Bingo is $20 a game!! Unless your a casino player theres not much to do on sea days. The pools and hot tubs were taken over by kids under 12 except for the Serenity Deck and that pool is REALLY small and one hot tub was even open on that deck. All in all Im rethinking about doing a Carnival ever again, I think it might be worth an extra $100 each to try a different cruiseline. I will state again that the crew folks were wonderful.

We enjoyed the Glory. Crew members were very friendly & helpful. This is a "Conquest" class ship, which means you are unable to go from forward to aft on a few of the decks, which is a bit confusing & inconvenient. Food service & quality were excellent. Entertainment was a bit sparse. I was disappointed that CCL has decided to charge $ for cranberry juice at breakfast, also disappointed that CCL no longer had a future cruise agent on board. We are Platinum guests, which means we should have gotten 3 bags of laundry each on a 7 day, done for free. But no laundry bags were in our cabin & when I requested bags, I only received one, having to ask for the 2nd one. I was never offered anymore, this was a bit disappointing. Perhaps part of CCL's cutbacks. We had rain for 2 out of our 4 ports, a bit disappointing, but of course not the fault of CCL This was a premier cruise, so the casino was always packed. Machines were generous on the 1st couple of days, very tight the last couple of days. Casino was even open on a couple of port days, which was surprising to me. Read Less
