Carnival Glory Holiday Cruise

Sail Date: December 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Miami
We have cruised Carnival since the early 70's and have never had a bad cruise. We were very unhappy with the service on this ship. We discussed the problems we were haviang with other guests, who we had met on Cruise Critic before we left on this cruise.

The general consensus was the same, the service was not up to par. The dining room service was very poor. We feel that the people who worked the tables had not been properly trained, which really surprised us. Also, they were very short staffed in that dining room. Service was slow and not friendly. We will continue to cruise with Carnival, we have never had anything bad to report on with them in the past, but will never cruise on the Glory again.

The Maitre d did not ask people not to enter dressed shabby, in shorts and ballcap on. If people want to dress like that, it is their business, but they should eat on top deck. Not in the dining room, as it is not Mc Donalds fast food restaurant. I have never understood More people who get a kick out of breaking rules, and I think that the rules should be enforced.

The entertainment was fair, we were disappointed as we feel thata Carnival is usually tops on our list for great shows. We really enjoyed the Comedy Club. I think that maybe some faults were due to the Cruise Director. On two weeks of cruising on Glory we only saw him out 3 times. We were surprised, as usually we have seen and talked with the Cruise Directors on ships constantly.

Carnival did not have a comment card for us to fill out at the end of the cruise. Less

Cabin review:

Our cabin was about the same as others we have experienced in the past. Our cabin steward was very nice and kept everything tidy and shipshape (couldn't resist that phrase). It was roomier than some that we have been on for a balcony cabin.

Port and Shore Excursions

We enjoyed our snorkeling excursion with Carnival. Friendly staff and a nice small island.

We did a private tour of driving dune buggies around the island. We had a great time and would do it again. We went to various places. We went to a beach and they fixed our lunch and it was very good.

We went to seven mile beach and enjoyed it. It is a beautiful beach and we rented umbrellas and lounge chairs. There was food and drink service available. It was a relaxing afternoon after shopping when we first arrived.

We loved this island for it beauty, friendly people and fun things to see and do. We did a private tour and went ziplining and spent time there with monkeys. Our daughters loved the parrots and monkeys. The ziplining had very secure harnesses and cables. They guide with us watched out for us constantly and made sure we stayed safe. We also did some geocaching and our driver was very familiar with where to go. You could tell he was enjoying us searching for our treasures. We loved it!

We had read many people were apprehensive about this island. We felt safe at all times and would recommend it to everyone to go there. It is one of the prettier islands we have been on, and we have gone to many beautiful islands in our past 38 cruises.
