Loved cruising on this ship. The buffet food was typical buffet food and lacked variety but still good. The Emerald Steakhouse, Main Dining Room, Guys Burgers, Ice Cream, BBQ, Pizza Pirate were all wonderful! Casino was a blast! Arcade was small and could be congested if many children were in there. Photo ops were great. No complaints of the staff other than the Casino Hostess. She was rude, unfriendly, unapproachable, uninviting. She walked away from me more than once when attempting to ask a question, once about an advertised promotion. Other than that, the entire crew we interacted with was super! Friendly, attentive, funny! MDR Phillips & Ana were our waitstaff and they were kind and paid attention to our likes and dislikes! Our cabin steward, Dewa greeted us daily, by name and always had our room tip top! Daily asking if everything was ok, did we need anything. I loved Bubba at Guys Burger, he was always upbeat and willing to dance while working! Always something to do! Fun! Laughs! Good time! The Serenity deck does need a little more attention to run off the teens in the evening as it is adults only.

EXTREMELY good service at the Platinum Dining room ( evening meals) My service team of Adnan ( team lead server), Michael (team server) and Wendel ( assistant server) did a fantastic job and made our cruise special. ESPECIALLY Wendel. they all treated us like family and seem to enjoy their jobs. Great job Cardinal and consider yourself lucky to have staff like this team.

We chose a January 2024 cruise to get back in the cruising groove after having 2 cruises cancelled during Covid in 2020/2021. All excited to finally get back on a Carnival Cruise Ship we haven't been on, out of New Orleans. We had a wonderful day and a half in New Orleans, exploring the sights and sounds and food. We parked free at the cruise port with Florida Disabled Vet Plates and used our Faster To The Fun purchase to get on the ship with our bags and in our room (8209) before 12 noon. I made the mistake of accepting a tropical drink in a plastic Blue Iguana cup by the pool and it cost me over $30. Our 1st dinner service was at a table for 2 upper level and it was so disappointing after the expectation we had from our 2019 cruise on the Carnival Vista. All our cruises have been at a group table of 6-12 people we could mingle with and get to know at all our dinner services, as well as the entertainment by the Wait Staff during the meals. The 2 top they assigned us was in an isle with people and wait staff walking past on both sides keeping the area very congested and not inviting. Our server at table 647 was way over tasked and really didn't give the level of service we had been accustomed to on prior cruises. Then the food came and we were blown away by the lack of presentation and such small portions. Shrimp Cocktails were basically 4 tiny salad shrimp and ketchup. My wife ordered the Braised Lamb Pappardelle Pasta and I ordered the Braised Short Ribs with mashed potatoes and green beens. The Lamb dish was just the name only with only a few strands of lamb in a bowl pasta. My Braised Short Ribs were also in name only because the ribs were tough and not braised for more than 30 minutes. After that meal I reached out to the Maitre D on the lower level and he was kind enough to to reassign us to a lower level 12 Top table 441 with Armando as our main server. What a nice change, because our service was on point, Armando and team made sure to keep us spoiled and entertained during our service. We met 4 other couples at our table, unfortunately 1 couple had the Flu a couple days in and eventually I caught the flu my last 2 days on board. My wife unfortunately became ill from digestive issues and only made 1 service at this table with me. My favorite meals included some of the Emeril appetizer and entree choices. It became a table wide consensus , the food quality has gone down extremely and portion size as well, while the cruise cost had gone up. The Carnival Glory was our 6th ship and by far the worst, even when my 1st cruise ship was the Triumph in 2012. The Glory was due for Dry Dock after our cruise and it was obviously due. The ship was filthy and in complete disrepair. Our shower flooded the 1st use, and the ship was dirty everywhere. There was an obvious Sewer smell on all levels throughout the whole cruise which was very nauseating and a topic of conversation on many elevator journeys. Our Room Steward Nyoman was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed including Ice and keeping our bed updated more than once a day for my wife to feel better. Now this cruise was overshadowed by my wife’s illness, keeping her from enjoying the cruise and ports. My highest ratings go to Dr. Mohammed Waris and his incredible nursing staff, Paul, Peter and Christine. Every member of the Medical Staff treated us both with such kindness and loving care, making sure my wife was comfortable and had anything she needed. No matter what time of day or night. I do credit Carnival for the Fast On and Off the ship. We also noticed so much more turbulence and shuddering during this cruise between New Orleans and Jamaica as well as Cozumel back to New Orleans. The weather leaving and coming back was not conducive to swimming and or sunbathing nor was use of the Serenity Deck because of the winds. Because of this we will not vacation by cruise ship during early months ever again. Bottom Line, Carnival Cruise Lines has completely lowered there standards and quality, resulting in us rethinking how we will spend another $1800 for a vacation.

We went on this, our 10th cruise, with our family of 7 which includes 3 kids and their wives. Of course we have a great time, that's why we always come back. We only wish Carnival could come up with more/different activities instead of repeating the same ones. Since we already cruised with Carnival in March, the shows were all the same. But, even if we went years between cruises, when we cruise again, the schedule is always the same. We need some more variety. I enjoy events on the Lido because I don't want to be kept inside on nice, sunny days. I don't enjoy much trivia or casino activities. Give us more Lido deck fun! Other than that, let's get rid of Belize City as a port. It's disappointing. Carnival, can't you find a port in Northern Belize near Ambergris Caye?? Belize has recently had a travel advisory. Let's remove it & find a better location on the Cozumel & Roatan route.

Took my wonderful wife of 31 years on a cruise for our anniversary and it was awesome. Clean ship, great food and plenty of fun. Went to Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Planning on cruising again for wife's birthday with grandkids next year. Can't wait. First cruise in Glory second on Elation. If you have never cruised..give it a try.
