Carnival Glory although smaller is very similar in design as the carnival Splendor that we where on the year before, there are few differences along with color scheme changes but the basic layout is close. In fact Carnival Glory / Carnival Splendor / Carnival Victory has the same basic layout on the ship.

On most ships there always seems to be an most upper deck that you cannot get to with a wheelchair and that seems to be common on a lot of ships but the vast majority of the ship is wheelchair accessible.

All ports on this cruise was docked.

Shows where good, although following the carnival tradition, no pictures and no video are allowed at most shows.

The food was good, but in regards to the buffet I liked it better on some of the other cruise ships.

As with all carnival ships, photos taken by the photographers on board although good there are no deals if you buy more. They have a punch card for free gifts after certain picture buy intervals. Although I will take what they give but considering the cost of the pictures I would rather have better price deals than the token gifts they give out. No charge for picture taking, you pay only what you want to buy.

They also have a specialized photographer that is separate from the regular photographers, again no charge for the taking but much higher pricing if you decide to buy, but you have options that they can take pictures on shore or on the ship.

Special Note:

If you ever have an issue with the onboard ATM machine there can be very limited help onboard to resolve the issue. I had one withdrawal from credit card at the ATM located beside the cashier counter in the casino area, I attempted to withdraw $ 340 and what the machine dispensed was $ 80, but the receipt indicated $ 340 plus service charge. I immediately went to the cashier counter and they made a phone call and told me any issue with the machine and the money should within a few minutes be returned to my account and to go to guest services to call the credit card company to confirm. I did that and it was not credited back to my account and was told by the credit card company to deal with the cruise ship which after another couple of internal phone calls was told they have nothing to do with the ATM machine all they do is reload. If they can reload then they must be able to open the machine to see if money was jammed inside or if the machine was empty something they refused to do. Then I was told to call back the credit card company to file a dispute, the credit card company said I would have to fill out a form and fax it them, something not that easy on the ship. Once I got home a month later and mailed it to the credit card company and after 4 months since the date it happened, I finally got the money back.

I have used ATM onboard numerous cruise ships in the past and this was the first time this happened.
