Eighteen new balconies were also incorporated onto existing staterooms and a Mongolian wok venue was added to the casual poolside restaurant. Bow-to-stern Wi-Fi access was enabled, as well.
The balconies went onto Spa Deck accommodations, creating 220sq ft verandah staterooms adjacent to Spa Carnival. With these newly reconfigured staterooms, nearly 40% of Carnival Glory’s 1,487 cabins now feature balconies.
The new Serenity adults-only retreat is located forward on Sun Deck and Sky Deck, with shaded loungers and hammocks, a full bar and two oversized whirlpools.
Circle ‘C’ for tweens provides high-tech sound and lighting system, plasma-screen televisions, a touch-screen jukebox and gaming pods.
In respect to dining, the Mongolian wok option was added to the Red Sail Lido Deck restaurant. Additionally, the forward Golden dining room was reconfigured for ‘Your Time Dining’ with open seating between 5:45 and 9:30 nightly.
The post-Panamax Carnival Glory entered service in 2003.
From February to May, the ship operates alternating weekly Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises. Carnival Glory will then be deployed to New York for four- and five-day Atlantic Canada voyages from early June to early September, followed by seven-day Canada/New England cruises through early October.
