Overview

Carnival Glory first set sail in 2003 and was outfitted with “Fun Ship 2.0” amenities, including new dining venues and bars, in 2012. In 2017, it received routine cosmetic enhancements like new carpeting and tile, as well as the Carnival WaterWorks water park. 

Those seeking entertainment will find Playlist Production musicals (though recent cruisers lament the lack of a live band), as well as family-friendly Hasbro, The Game Show and comedy acts at the Punchliner Comedy Club.

When it comes to food, the ship is equipped with two main dining rooms, a specialty steakhouse (for an extra fee) and the Lido Deck, which features an extensive buffet, Guy’s Burger Joint and BlueIguana Cantina. Apart from versatile dining venues, Carnival Glory also offers activities like mini-golf, waterslides and video arcades. Parents can sip cocktails at eight bars, while kids ages 2 to 17 play in age-appropriate youth clubs.

In terms of lodging, the ship offers a variety of options that range from smaller Interior and Ocean View cabins to Balcony and Suite category rooms – all of which include flat-screen TVs, terry cloth robes and 24-hour room service. Plus, the ship maintains a crew of 1,180 to serve the nearly 3,000 passengers, offering a higher level of personalization than larger ships within the fleet.

In 2018-19, Carnival Glory sails from Miami and New Orleans to destinations across the Caribbean, including St. Thomas, Cozumel and Grand Cayman

Disclaimers about ship ratings: A ship’s Health Rating is based on vessel inspection scores published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If a ship did not receive a CDC score within 22 months prior to the calculation of its Overall Rating, its Health Rating appears as N/A; in such a case, the ship’s Overall Rating is calculated using the average Health Rating of all CDC-rated ships within the cruise line.
