Mediocre at best

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Boarding the ship took forever, the food on board was mediocre, the Serenity area and all the other hot tubs would be shut down early right as we would start enjoying them (Serenity hot tubs should be open all night), The virtual reality arcade machine stole my money, Arcade games should be included with the cruise, too many "private" events, the wifi didn't work in our room and was extremely ...

We traveled on the Carnival Glory March 1-8, 2020. We flew in the night before and used Uber to get to the port in the morning. We got to the port at around 11:30, dropped off our luggage and it took about an hour before we made it inside and through security for boarding. We went up to the Lido Deck for a Guys Burger and a drink before heading to our room to drop off our carry on luggage. ...

Disappointed in the Glory this time

This was a "girlfriend's" cruise for my wife. She turned platinum on this cruise. These are her comments. Glory looked and felt old and run-down. Food was not up to previous Carnival standards. General cleaning was poor. Saw leftover coffee cups in the same spot for 2 days by the elevators. Elevator buttons were dirty the entire trip. I used my elbow to press them. Ship's windows ...

Food not as good

Carnival crew members are always polite and almost always happy and friendly. That’s a big plus, of course. The food wasn’t as good on this cruise, IMO. My husband used to really enjoy the filet and lobster on the elegant nights, but they have moved those two entrees to separate nights now. We ate in the main dining room every night, but the only thing I had that was really good was the crab ...

We had a great time on our cruise. The staff was great, the accomodations were nice. They even brought us a fan because we felt our room was on the warm side. Our room steward and dining staff were great and friendly. The comedy was pretty good and the shows nice. Our Cruise Director, Lee was incredible and full of energy. He really went out of his way to make sure that everyone was having an ...

The 14 day journey cruise on the Glory was overall memorable. Embarkation was great as soon as we got to the port and went thru security we were on the ship. We had some great stops, Montego Bay Jamaica, Aruba, Cartagena Columbia, Puerto Limon Costa Rica, the Panama canal and cozumel. the crew was great. Depending on where your room was on the ship there was a constant movement of the ship. I ...

Wanted to see the Panama Canal Cruise was good. Had a few hiccups with getting off the ship. We arrived late in one port , and rather than let passengers off by excursion time, they let everybody off at once. People got on the busses for the incorrect excursion time and had to be asked to get off so the correct people could get on. Could have been avoided with a little planning. Food ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My first cruise! Everything went well except for an excursion ( Isla Rotan) that was not clearly explained. I thought that snorkeling would be supervised and found out the hard way that it was not. Nor was it explained in the description. I learned so much that I can rely on my travel clients. The entire staff was so nice and accommodating. it was my girlfriends' first cruise as well. We really ...

So, Writing this review a few months late but better late then never lol....So my wife and I (38, 40) took our oldest son (18) on a cruise for his High school Graduation present. He graduated 5 months early so figured would be a great time to get away from the cold. We booked the Glory out of New Orleans mainly because of the convenience of not having to fly. I have been on Many cruises with ...

This cruise was booked to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We first cruised last year and we fell in love with cruising. We sailed out of New Orleans. We are from Louisiana so New Orleans was close. Previously we have sailed out of Galveston which we were not too fond of so we wanted to try something new. Overall I feel like it was a success. Embarkation was very seamless because we had faster ...
