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

I had an absolute amazing time on the beautiful Glory!! The workers were all nice, the balcony room on the Lido was amazing and I can’t say enough about guy’s burgers !!! To die for!! The steakhouse is also a must. Best steak I have ever had, couldn’t finish it all. The Bars were super cool, I was at those more than the shows, cheers package of course! I stayed at the Rum bar and the serenity area was super laid back. I wish I could be back on this ship, it blew me away. The white heat night club was Lit!! Read Less

Started my journey by driving to Ft Lauderdale on Friday before the cruise. Stayed at the Hampton Inn Cruise Port North. Great hotel for cruising out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale.They have a shuttle to Miami now and parking at hotel.. Left on Satuarday morning for parking in Miami. It took about thirty minutes to get to Safe cruise Parking lot. Easy to find and good shuttle service.Took about fifteen minutes from the lot to the ship. Arrived at ship about 1100 am for an 1130 check in time. Went thru the line more quickly than ever before. By 1130 I was already on the ship and in the Lido eating. Looked like half the ship was already there. As priority I had left my bag in the room.My key was not there yet , but room was open. Key was put in box around noon. Around 4 pm we has muster drill. The might have been the worst part of the trip. It was outside and took around thirty minutes. First night was a normal first night. Had dinner in main dining room. As then just roamed the ship Next two full days were sea days and the normal activities took place, Shows , Bingo. Karouke, comedy club. Second Night was the first formal night and normal lobster feast for those desiring . Tuesday was first shore day in St Crouix. Friends have a villa there we rented a car and visited there. Afterwards did a tour of Captain Morgan distillery. Then returned to boat for departure.. Wed was Shore day at Guadeloupe. The main currency here was the Euro. There were places to exchange money or you could use exchange that people would take. Took a taxi to beach where we found a Club Med and stayed on the each there. You could pay for chair and use of facility or use beach for nothing. Thursday Barbados was next port. I just took walk around town of Bridgetown and then took a rest. Friday Martinique took a ferry to the beach and spent the morning at the beach , rented a beach chair and umbrella for ten dollars. Afternoon returned to town and just did some site seeing.They also used Euros but more friendly to dollars Sat was Antiqua. My whole group took an tour pf the Island. Was supposed to be tow hours, turned into three and a half hours. Was a very good tour and great driver, and was a great price. After this took tour of shopping areas. Really is a beautiful Island Sunday was St Martin We all did out normal beach day , get a chair and umbrella and sit on the beach with a bucket of beers. and shopping. Monday was Tortola. had planned on ferry to Virgin Gorda but got off boat to late for early ferry, so took another two hour bus tour around entire Island from Carribbean side to Atlantic side. Really was a beautiful Island recovering still from Hurricane Irma. Next two and a half days were sea days with regular activities.for cruises. This was a journeys cruise so there were special activities going on during the cruise , such as ice sculpture feast on Tuesday night. There was also a second formal night on which lobster was again served. The Lido dining room was average, usual types of food was served, Best food on Lido was the grill where sandwiches were served usually the most popular place. Also had the greasy hamburger stand, Seafood shack was extra, Sushi was extra. Pizza was good as usual. Main dining room food was good to average. Service was good but some times the food was cold or luke warm. The desserts have become a joke in the dining room and the lido deck. Not a great variety. Used the banana split option several times. The ship was kept clean and when things did break they were usually quickly fixed. Older ship is stating to show rust , but they were painting at most ports. The entertainment in the ship lounges and common areas was some of the best i have seen on Carnival. I did not usually attend more than ten minutes of shows as i have seen mos if i recognized it i left. Had a hyptomist one night was really good. The cruise staff did a good job of leading activities during the cruise and usually had good attendance. The service was excellent i my room, dining area and quest services. Had no problems when i tried to get help. Cabin was good condition and steward was excellent. Had a safe needing a swipe card to open. Had a fridge that worked. Television was awful. Only news was CBSN . Kept running the same thing over and over and then had old news shows. Arrived home in Miami before 7 on thursday. Had several hundred people in priority debarkation and only too about 15 minutes to get off boat and thru customs. One of the best i have had in 25 cruises. My shuttle was waiting and by 730 i was on I 95. I would do this cruise again, great ports. Only down pat was it took to many days to get home, which i knew before hand Read Less

This cruise was picked for the length of the cruise. We also loved the different islands in the Caribbean that we got to travel to. Everyone was so friendly staff. We had a great time meeting a lot the passengers. We got eat breakfast in the dinning room a few times. It was great food and conversations. We enjoyed lunch on Lido many variety of foods. The food at dinner was delicious. We had great servers .Great entertainment from dancers(fantastic shows), comedians, singers and band. The band GROUP THERAPY was amazing. I really enjoyed the embarkation this time. We did not wait. We used self serve disembarkation because we had early flights. It went well. We did not wait. We received our cards when we got to our room. Good job! We had a great time. I would go again. We had a fabulous weather. Very sunny and hot. Loved it! Read Less

This was an awesome cruise overall!! The service and staff were amazing. The ports were very interesting and the Carnival excursion were a great value for what we paid. The food was very good as was the entertainment and activities. We really enjoyed the Serenity Deck and spent a lot of time there. Our room stewards were awesome very friendly and helpful with all of our requests. We did not go to the dining room only because we like to eat when and what we want. We never found line ups at the buffet and enjoyed the varied food choices. The ports are very beautiful and three were new to us which is one of the reasons we chose this cruise. We also enjoyed the Journey's cruise 12 days was awesome. We would definitely do another cruise on the Glory as well as another Journeys cruise. Cruise director Cookie was awesome. Read Less

TRULY WAY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS! I have cruised many many times but have not cruised Carnival for many many years, choosing instead the supposedly more upscale cruises on NCL, RCL, Celebrity. I chose this as I was the cruise planner for 3 of my family, 2 of which, had never cruised before. I needed to keep the price affordable for them, but also provide them with the best cruising experience with several ports of call, good and multiple free food options on the ship, and lots of activities on the ship. Spouse and I had not had the best experience on Carnival previously (though this was many many years ago) as far as customer experience, rowdiness on the ship, etc. However, this experience blew my concerns totally out of the water - pun intended! This was the absolute best cruise I have ever taken and I've taken many! The ship Glory, though an older ship, is updated, clean and beautiful. Staff are constantly cleaning every aspect of the ship. As a health care professional, I appreciated their attention to infection control from the environment to the food prep and service. It is clear, in all aspects, that safety is first! The customer service was perfect - impeccable from every staff member we encountered, no matter what position - very impressive! All staff were friendly, attentive, helpful, ALWAYS! Food was excellent! Family loved the main dining room - with great and multiple food choices - and the entertainment every evening by the singing/dancing wait staff! There were also multiple free food options, other than the dining room, - also very good - and more free options than I've seen on other cruise lines! Ship entertainment was phenomenal and by far, the best I have ever experienced on a cruise!!!! If someone did not have fun on this ship, they must be dead! So many options - from comedy shows, lido deck parties, production shows, game shows, movies, dancing, water park/slides, mini golf, plus the usual running/walking track, enrichment activities, gym, spa, casino, shopping, etc.. There was multiple live music venues always going at various locations on the ship -something for everyone - and all of the music was terrific! I also appreciated Carnival's support and fundraising for St. Judes. CARNIVAL LIVES UP TO ITS NAME AS THE FUN SHIP!!! The Carnival excursions were also very good and well run (speaking from what excursions we took). COOKIE IS THE BEST ACTIVITY CRUISE DIRECTOR EVER!!! I love you Cookie! He is the best I've every had the pleasure of experiencing!! His humor, and superior people and organization skills, truly made this cruise so memorable!! He is A+!! The guy never stops working! of the and he truly seems to love what he does. The ship appears to be very well run - especially in crowd control -considering there were almost 3000 passengers on board (and only slightly less staff). There were not long lines for dining, etc.; ship does not feel crowded, enough pool lounge chairs, etc. Embark and debark process were also the easiest, fastest, and smoothiest I've ever seen in my many cruises! My only tiny complaint was regarding gym/spa. I would like to have seen more exercise classes offered, not just the few few yoga/pilates...for example, Zumba, Jazzercize-type classes, etc. Carnival - you definitely wowed me and I'll be back!!!

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

This was our second time on the Glory. While she is one of their older ships but we still love her charm. The crew was amazing as before. The food was great. Our cruise director Cookie was a blast. He did a great job interacting with the passengers and genuinely enjoyed hanging out with us and welcoming with questions we may would have had. We had a nice conversation with him and it felt like we were hanging out with a friend. We got a couples massage in the spa that was great. I attended a ladies pampering seminar where we were given a fantastic deal that was extended to my husband and well. The only thing we were disappointed in were the shows. We were on her a year before and they were the same exact shows. The group of folks that performed last year we're so talented. This year not so much. Our meals in the main dining room were very good. The only complaint I have there is that I was only able to get the Creme brulee once and they didn't have escargot this time on the menu. We highly recommend the behind the scenes tour. It was well worth the money and suggest booking it as soon as the excursions desk opens when you embark because it is limited to 16 people and sells out fast. Embarking and disembarking was a breeze.

We had twenty people (14 adults/6 children) on this cruise for a family getaway and a grandaughter's birthday. The trip was arranged by my daughter; and let me explain that I had not been a big fan of cruises but love my daughter. The entire cruise was great; from the comedy shows, to the musical entertainment, to the bars, Guy's Burgers, Rum Bar, Lobby Bar, Bar BQ, shore excursions and our ship cabin. Three things made this an exceptional cruise: 1) Chef Chang and Staff (I apologize for not remebering the staff names). We signed up for the Chef's Dinner (additional charge but was the best money we spent). All twenty of us were the guests of Chef Chang and her staff. Normally this is only provided to a maximum of fourteen people but they agreed to accomodate our group of twenty. The tour of the galley was very interesting with incredible organization. The twenty of us had a private dining room for the entire evening (approximately three hours) for incredible appetizers and many excellent food courses (ranging from Sea Bass to Wagyu Beef). Chef Chang and her staff were totally focused on our needs, with the younger children who were not as adventurous with food, they provided chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese andf french fries. The entire group continued to talk about this experience for the entire cruise; the younger kids requesting to see Chef Chang later during the cruise (three times) and she responded every time to come see us during our dining time. Chef Chang and staff truly understand meeting client needs. We are thankful to this entire group. 2) Adam and I Nyomen our service staff in the Platinum Dining room-early table 609. This is where we ate the majority of our meals and these individuals did an exceptinal job. Regardless of what was requested (crazy or not), and we requested some crazy things, they always met our requests with a smile and great service. These two individuals made our dining experience very memorable from the food ordered to the dancing in which our grandchildren participated. 3) Gemma and Mae, our cabin attendants. Gemma always greeted us pleasantly every day and kept our cabin with everything we requested. From ice, towels, soap and questons about the ship she accomodated all our needs. She and Mae made up incredible towel animals each morning and also surprised us one evening with what I thought was a man on our bed (Just Gemma and crew working with bath towels). While all aspects of our cruise were great; these are the individuals on the cruise that insured our experience was exceptional and memorable. Many thanks! Read Less
