Carnival Glory Sets Sail with a Spectacular New Look

The much-anticipated return of Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Glory to the seas marks a significant milestone for the company. Following a comprehensive 21-day dry dock refurbishment, the ship has re-emerged, reinvigorated and ready to charm its guests with a host of upgraded facilities and fresh décor. Departing from Barcelona on 18th April, the 2980-guest vessel embarked on a 14-day transatlantic voyage, introducing its new homeport of Port Canaveral.

A Fresh Face and Enhanced Amenities

Every corner of Carnival Glory has been thoughtfully upgraded. The ship now boasts refreshed furnishings and a modern aesthetic across all public areas, creating an inviting atmosphere for passengers. Notable among the new additions is the Heroes Tribute Bar & Lounge. This space is dedicated to honouring military veterans and active-duty service members, offering a place of recognition and respect within the lively atmosphere of a cruise ship.

Focus on Photography and Family

Another exciting development is the introduction of Dreams Photography Studio. This new feature allows guests to capture their happiest moments at sea with professional quality. For families, Carnival Glory has enhanced its appeal with updates to Camp Ocean. The collaboration with the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex has resulted in a new large video wall for the Space Cruisers programme, promising to bring the wonders of space closer to young explorers.

Leisure and Entertainment Upgrades

For those looking to unwind, the enhancements extend to the ship’s leisure and entertainment venues. The Warehouse video arcade and the onboard spa have received significant upgrades, providing both high-energy entertainment and serene relaxation options. Furthermore, responding to guest feedback, a new non-smoking area has been added to the casino, catering to preferences for a smoke-free environment while gambling.

Ready to Explore the Bahamas

On 2nd May, Carnival Glory will commence its regular itineraries from Port Canaveral, joining sister ships Carnival Freedom, Carnival Vista, and Mardi Gras. The ship will offer three and four-day cruises visiting captivating destinations in the Bahamas such as Nassau, Freeport, Princess Cays, and Bimini. These itineraries are perfect for those seeking a quick but memorable escape to the stunning beaches and vibrant culture of the Bahamas.

A Glorious Return

The revitalised Carnival Glory highlights Carnival Cruise Line’s commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. Whether it’s honouring heroes, facilitating family adventures, or enhancing guest comfort, the upgrades reflect an understanding of passenger needs and desires amongst their target demographic. As Carnival Glory sails towards its new chapter, it continues to epitomise the joy and excitement that cruising with Carnival offers.
