Our first cruise

Review for Carnival Glory to Bahamas

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We only had a few complaints on this cruise, so I will mention them first. The room service is VERY slow! We never waited less than an hour- usually closer to an hour and a half. The first night, when I was a little sea sick, I ordered room service for my kids for dinner. It took almost 2 hours to get to us. Also, our refrigerator was locked the entire 5 days. I'm glad we didn't need it. We had to ...

We just returned from a five day cruise on the Carnival Glory. Norfolk (last Carnival cruise for Norfolk...such a shame!) to the Bahamas. We have cruised a few times before on another line. Friends invited us to come along, and you just can't beat these Carnival prices. We wanted to see what Carnival was like compared to Holland America line. If you are a frequent cruiser, you are probably ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Since this was the last trip out of Norfolk, for reasons known only to the four cruise lines who have pulled out ( despite a well paid cruise director who resigned last month; I heard it was the high price of fuel..I guess fuel is much cheaper in Miami... and environmental regulations.), we decided to take the Carnival Glory and took our two teens. We sailed on a Carnival ship ten years ago. Some ...

Traveled with my husband, father, and step mother! Embarkation was a breeze. Lines moved quickly! Our room was clean and our steward, Rudy, was GREAT! Our wait staff in the dining room was also GREAT: Vane, Alex and Gavin!!!! We had a booth just for our party of 4. We could order as many starters, entrees, desserts as we wanted. The food was ok most nights but formal night it was GREAT! The ...

The cruise was fun but Customer Service was lacking.

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

My wife and i went with her graduating class to celebrate a high school reunion from the 80's and we had a really good time. Pleasantly surprised with the cabin space although i tried to upgrade my stateroom (willing to pay), but at the mere mention of an upgrade, the customer service counter rep enthusiastically shouted "the ship is completely booked". Mind you that at the security check in i was ...

Glory is no Pride

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Went down to Norfolk to give another Carnival ship a try. Cruised on the Pride twice out of Baltimore. I really didn't like the Glory...even with all of the upgrades. Rooms were old and not quiet. Crew in halls very loud. Couple in next room having loud, screaming sex every night. I was not sure what to tell my son about that. Hated how the 3rd and 4th floors were broken up with no way to get to ...

Never bored.

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I had a great time. Pros: Great Cruise Director and Assistant Cruise Director. They worked well together and really created a "fun" atmosphere. Room with balcony. The room had outdated decor, but I loved the balcony. The shower had great water pressure. I wear earplugs at night, so I did not notice any noise issues. Variety of activities. It is impossible to be bored on this ship. There is ...

10+ Cruises • Age 30s

This was my fourth cruise (2nd with Carnival), and my wife's 11th (1st with Carnival). Embarkation out of Norfolk was a cut above any port we've ever left from. The Half Moone Cruise Terminal is beautiful, and right downtown, surrounded by restaurants, museums, and local sights. The ship was wonderful. One of our favorite things about it was that, even when there were huge deck parties or loud ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

This was my 4th time taking pretty much this same cruise on the Carnival Glory. They finally upgraded the ship, which was really great. I had gotten bored with the ship and had kept hoping they would dock a different one at the Norfolk port because of that. But, though I ended up on the same ship I've been on multiple times before, the upgrades made it much better this time around. Before I go ...

Cruise to nowhere

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

I hate seeing this port no longer offering cruises. It is easy peasy to park, get shuttle and there you are. So we decided to do the last cruise cruise to nowhere. We always book a balcony and did so even though there was nothing to see. Unfortunaletly we booked cabin 6363 which we actually thought there was a speaker in our room blasting what was happening underneath us. Housekeeping told us to ...
