This is my husband and my fourth cruise and our two daughters (ages 12 & 10) third....all with Carnival. We decided to leave the evening before the cruise to avoid the hassle the day of. Our flight left Milwaukee around 5:15pm and with a layover in Atlanta, we arrived in Orlando at 11:00pm. We rented a car and drove less than 10 minutes to stay at the Quality Inn Airport Hotel. It was nice and ...

This was our first cruise ever and it was far more wonderful than I ever expected. Prior to our cruise I read many reviews that had many negative things to say about Glory and Carnival. Let me first say that I have no other cruise to compare this one with but if there were any better then more power to them. Embarkation- We arrived at Port Canaveral and unloaded our luggage and was assisted by ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband and I have been on over 20 cruises...this was our 4th time on the Glory. We live near the port, so we headed to the ship at 10:30 a.m. and were met with a huge traffic jam, which is unusual. We soon found out that the ship had been involved in a rescue and had come into port late, which is why people were still getting off the ship at 11:00. We are platinum with Carnival and as soon ...

My son, girlfriend, and DH and I drove to Dallas to catch our flight. Never again will I make a 4.5 hour drive to catch a flight. While we made the drive fine, none of us got any sleep the night before our flight due to our late arrival in DFW. EMBARKATION: This was a breeze. We arrived to the port by LIMO (highly recommend Limo Orlando) from Orlando. This was a surprise for my son and his ...

Let's start at the beginning. Arriving at the Port on a beautiful sunny day, parking was easy. Embarkation went smoothly, approximately 30 minutes until we were on board. Had lunch on the Lido deck, the Red Sail buffet food was so/so but the deli made me a tuna melt that was good. The grill on the Lido deck had good burgers & hotdogs that my husband liked. Our room was ready by 1:30, the room was ...

Had done Disney twice, RC and Norwegian once each and all were great. Just didn't want to do Carnival due to their adds and rumors of constant partying. But got a good rate and this fit all of our needs so decided to give it a try. Went in with zero expectations. Truthfully, I was expecting to be terribly disappointed. And it turned out to be just fine and I would do Carnival again! And believe me ...

This was our 3rd cruise on the Carnival Glory, the 7th Carnival cruise. The Glory, although she is a bit older like all of us (!), is still wonderful! Embarkation was great! We left the Radisson at the Port on the 11:30 shuttle, and were having lunch on the Lido at 12:15! The people handling embarkation were professional, yet friendly! There were questions about the H1N1 we had to answer, but ...

My husband and I are in our 60's and this our first Carnival Cruise. We have sailed once on Holland America and once on Royal Caribbean. I picked this cruise because of the value and itinerary. We flew in to Orlando Friday, rented a car thru Avis and drove to Cocoa Beach to the Days Inn. The price was reasonable, the room was very clean and freshly painted with a convenient location. ...

First, let me start with the good. The ship is beautiful and the rooms are as nice as any I've sailed. The room steward was excellent. Everything was cleaned and put where it should be and when it should be. When we boarded the Carnival Glory, I was proud that I had recommended this ship to the two other couples who were traveling with me. The ports on this cruise were interesting enough ...

Not as good as other Carnival cruises

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Have been on about five other Carnival cruises and this one ranks on the bottom. First the way the ship Red Sail Restaurant looked was old looking and dark not like the Liberty or Valor. Some cakes and deserts seemed old like left over from the cruise before, rest of food was good, but I hate chicken turkey so I ate a lot of sandwiches from the Deli. Lunch and dinner I would eat a salad and bake ...
