Carnival Glory Cruise Review
All I can say about my trip on the Carnival Glory is WOW! I have been on only one other cruise, which was on the Carnival Victory and the Glory far outdid it. I would like to list a few things that made this wonderful cruise such a pleasure for me!
Embarkation: This was quick and easy. We simply went through the spacious terminal and went through customs and we were on the ship. We had to wait for our bags, so we took a nice look around the beautiful ship.
Food: The food on the ship was magnificent. Every day, you could look forward to a nice dinner in one of the dining rooms, in our case the Platinum Dining Room, and to about 5 courses of delicious food. There were new choices every day on the menu and they were fantastic. There were also many buffets and free pizza and ice cream at all times. You will never go hungry on this ship!
Service: We had THE BEST service I have ever seen or experienced while aboard the ship. Our waitresses were so friendly and we became friends with them over the course of the week. The room service would zip in and out of your room when you didn't even know it and you would come back to a fresh and clean room! This was great for my mother because she was burden free!
Entertainment: This is the forte of this ship. Mark Price, the cruise director would have been enough entertainment on his own, but Carnival didn't stop there! Mark was a friendly, hilarious, smart and clever British man who could keep you smiling at all times. If you met him in a hallway he would always stop to talk. His personality and even singing voice were awesome. Aside from this amazing Cruise Director, there was a big show to look forward to every night. Two were Vegas-style shows with incredibly talented dancers and singers including Miss Veronica Swales. She had a great voice. On other nights, there were comedy acts that could get even the sourest of people to break out in laughter. The two magic acts were great. One was more of a comedy/magic show so that everyone would love it. The other was a more hard-core magic show by Justin Illusion, that I can, in no way, explain. You can watch and see for yourself. Out and about on the ship, there was music, there were art auctions, parties, clubs, and even karaoke auditions for the final show, Carnival Legends. This was where passengers on the ship auditioned for the parts of certain famous singers to perform in front of everyone in the Friday night show, and I must say it was phenomenal.
Debarkation: This took us about 30 minutes or less. Our baggage tag color was called and we proceeded to the gangway in a short line, said goodbye to Mark Price, and went through a quick and efficient customs and immigration check.
Overall, I can't say enough about the great time I had on this ship. I didn't even go to the teens group because there was just so much else to enjoy. I may be only fifteen, but I think that what I am saying is very accurate and will coincide with other peoples' reviews.
Great job Carnival, keep up the good work and I hope to be on another one of their cruises very soon!
