We were excited to cruise to the ports on the extended cruise for 25th Anniversary. Little did we know it would be a 80s themed cruise both entertainment and passengers. If we did ...we never would have booked it. Be aware when we got back and I called Carnival told me that the older age group is common for the Journey Cruises. (Didn’t see that in the description)Other than that I can’t say enough about the crew, they were awesome. The cabin we had was nice for an older ship. We did love all of the ports and excursions. We snorkeled at all. But the repetition of entertainment was hard. For 12 days you need a bigger variety. We got bored. We have been on other cruises and will cruise again. Just not on a “Senior Cruise” lol. We are in our 50s not wild but do like to have fun! I’ve never been on a cruise that there was no dancing by the pool on sea days. The repetitive music was killing us if I never hear Hotel California on a steel drum I will die a happy woman. Read Less

Started my journey by driving to Ft Lauderdale on Friday before the cruise. Stayed at the Hampton Inn Cruise Port North. Great hotel for cruising out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale.They have a shuttle to Miami now and parking at hotel.. Left on Satuarday morning for parking in Miami. It took about thirty minutes to get to Safe cruise Parking lot. Easy to find and good shuttle service.Took about fifteen minutes from the lot to the ship. Arrived at ship about 1100 am for an 1130 check in time. Went thru the line more quickly than ever before. By 1130 I was already on the ship and in the Lido eating. Looked like half the ship was already there. As priority I had left my bag in the room.My key was not there yet , but room was open. Key was put in box around noon. Around 4 pm we has muster drill. The might have been the worst part of the trip. It was outside and took around thirty minutes. First night was a normal first night. Had dinner in main dining room. As then just roamed the ship Next two full days were sea days and the normal activities took place, Shows , Bingo. Karouke, comedy club. Second Night was the first formal night and normal lobster feast for those desiring . Tuesday was first shore day in St Crouix. Friends have a villa there we rented a car and visited there. Afterwards did a tour of Captain Morgan distillery. Then returned to boat for departure.. Wed was Shore day at Guadeloupe. The main currency here was the Euro. There were places to exchange money or you could use exchange that people would take. Took a taxi to beach where we found a Club Med and stayed on the each there. You could pay for chair and use of facility or use beach for nothing. Thursday Barbados was next port. I just took walk around town of Bridgetown and then took a rest. Friday Martinique took a ferry to the beach and spent the morning at the beach , rented a beach chair and umbrella for ten dollars. Afternoon returned to town and just did some site seeing.They also used Euros but more friendly to dollars Sat was Antiqua. My whole group took an tour pf the Island. Was supposed to be tow hours, turned into three and a half hours. Was a very good tour and great driver, and was a great price. After this took tour of shopping areas. Really is a beautiful Island Sunday was St Martin We all did out normal beach day , get a chair and umbrella and sit on the beach with a bucket of beers. and shopping. Monday was Tortola. had planned on ferry to Virgin Gorda but got off boat to late for early ferry, so took another two hour bus tour around entire Island from Carribbean side to Atlantic side. Really was a beautiful Island recovering still from Hurricane Irma. Next two and a half days were sea days with regular activities.for cruises. This was a journeys cruise so there were special activities going on during the cruise , such as ice sculpture feast on Tuesday night. There was also a second formal night on which lobster was again served. The Lido dining room was average, usual types of food was served, Best food on Lido was the grill where sandwiches were served usually the most popular place. Also had the greasy hamburger stand, Seafood shack was extra, Sushi was extra. Pizza was good as usual. Main dining room food was good to average. Service was good but some times the food was cold or luke warm. The desserts have become a joke in the dining room and the lido deck. Not a great variety. Used the banana split option several times. The ship was kept clean and when things did break they were usually quickly fixed. Older ship is stating to show rust , but they were painting at most ports. The entertainment in the ship lounges and common areas was some of the best i have seen on Carnival. I did not usually attend more than ten minutes of shows as i have seen mos if i recognized it i left. Had a hyptomist one night was really good. The cruise staff did a good job of leading activities during the cruise and usually had good attendance. The service was excellent i my room, dining area and quest services. Had no problems when i tried to get help. Cabin was good condition and steward was excellent. Had a safe needing a swipe card to open. Had a fridge that worked. Television was awful. Only news was CBSN . Kept running the same thing over and over and then had old news shows. Arrived home in Miami before 7 on thursday. Had several hundred people in priority debarkation and only too about 15 minutes to get off boat and thru customs. One of the best i have had in 25 cruises. My shuttle was waiting and by 730 i was on I 95. I would do this cruise again, great ports. Only down pat was it took to many days to get home, which i knew before hand Read Less

We have travelled on Many Cruises(25+) over the years and was quite disappointed with the Glory, very out dated and the staff had great difficulty with English, this is the only cruise I had ever been on where It was so difficult to communicate with the staff, our cabin Steward (Dana) she was a pleasure to see each day, very pleasant, cheerful and very efficient, the dining room staff were pleasant, when it was possible to communicate with them, the food in the Dining Room was a bit repetitive and quite institutional compared with our experiences with the Conquest and the Breeze, where the food and service was exceptional, the Buffett on the Glory for Lunch and Dinner was extremely limited you can see the cut backs on food costs, it is ok to be concern with food costs but at least make the items appealing to your guests, it look cheap and tasted cheap. The overall hand sanitizing policy was not enforced on the Entrances to the various food venues, on other ships the staff are quick to tell you make sure you clean your hands before entering and there are usually hand Washing and Sanitizing stations available, there was not much emphasis on this important issue of hand washing to minimize the spread of Disease, the ship clearly needed better management for their Hotel Services, We will definitely think twice before booking with Carnival and never with the Carnival Casino Players Club a huge disappointment they use the Bait and Switch, they will offer promotions and perks with their program and once you board the ship, they have no knowledge of the offers, not a good way to do business.
