  3. Carnival Glory
Been on the Glory previously. It's an older ship, but still a favorite of ours. EMBARKATION: Don't understand why VIP members are boarded only 2 minutes before general boarding begins. Not much of a perk , if you have to greet a mob on embarkation. CABIN: Balcony cabin on port side. Nice view of ports and the ocean. DINING: Lido generally good, don't expect 5 stars, let's call it APPLEBEE's PLUS. Still pretty good on lido, although the selections get fewer and fewer with each cruise. We really enjoyed the SEAFOOD SHACK, make sure you check it out...costs a few $$ but quality was good. GUYS BURGERS...always packed, and best burger around. TACO/BURRITO place also good, but crowded. PIZZA: always a favorite, not that crowded but good pizza. The DELI was really good, and had daily special sandwiches....pretty good crowd here..but worth the line. NOTE: Always annoyed at cruisers who INSIST on eating their way through the Lido Buffet line....seriously, can't you wait to sit down?.....eating food with fingers while moving through the grazing line is not only unsanitary but bad mannered. DO NOT take food with fingers off the serving trays....Saw one person take a roll, inspect it, then placed back in the tray....Oh my. DINING ROOM: Whew...where to start....Generally good. Not sure why I have to look at a cruiser in T shirt on Formal Night...Carnival seems to allow anyone in with any attire?

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 7430
Nice view of the ports as you pull in. Clean...good cabin crew, attentive but not over the top. Cabin the back is the way to go....nothing worse than having a cabin MIDSHIP....we have had these previously, and nothing like hearing somebody yell "...KEVIN YOU FORGOT YOUR FLIP FLOPS" at 6 A. M. down the length of the hallway.
