Carnival Glory Wiki

The boat's Fun Ship 2.0 upgrade was done in 2012. The Carnival ship Glory is of the company's Conquest-class vessels, with sisterships ConquestFreedomLibertyValor. The vessel was floated out on July 19, 2003, at the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard. Following the Transatlantic crossing (without passengers) from Europe to the USA, Carnival Glory started the Maiden Voyage from Port Canaveral/Orlando (Florida) on July 14th. The christening ceremony was held in Port Canaveral on July 19th, led by godmother Sally Ride (1951-2012, American physicist and astronaut) who in 1983 became the USA's first woman in space.

During the inaugural season (2003-2004), from Port Canaveral, Carnival Glory offered 7-day roundtrip itineraries to the Western Caribbean (Mexico's Cozumel and Progreso, Belize City, Key West FL) and the Eastern Caribbean (Nassau Bahamas, Phillipsburg St Maarten, Charlotte Amalie St Thomas USVI).

In November 2012 Glory was drydocked to be "Fun Ship 2.0" refurbished. During the refurb, several new bars and lounges were added, along with a complete renovation of all cabins and public spaces.

Fun fact is that this Carnival ship has two famous namesakes. The 2017-launched "COSCO Glory" (operated by COSCO Line) is among the world's largest container ships (capacity 20170 TEU-containers). MS Viking Glory (2021) is a China-built cruiseferry owned by VIKING LINE.

In September 2021, the vessel was chartered to FEMA to serve as a hotel ship (in Port NOLA/New Orleans, Louisiana) for front-line/relief workers in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida (CruiseMinus).

Carnival Glory drydock refurbishment 2024

The ship's last drydocking was in 2024 (April 3-16). The refurbishment project was conducted at Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz Spain.

The project included redesigning the Casino lounge, in all public spaces the decor and furniture were updated.

The Heroes Tribute Bar & Lounge (deck xx) and Dreams Photography Studio (deck xx) were added. The wellness complex (Cloud 9 Spa) and the Warehouse Arcade were renovated. The Camp Ocean (children's complex) was revamped, and a large video wall was installed (facilitating the Space Cruisers Carnival program via partnership with NASA's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Merritt Island, Florida). Updates received various public areas, including all stairways/hallways.

The scope of works also included repairs, hull cleaning/painting, routine maintenance, cabin upgrades and renovation of public spaces (including new flooring and repainting).

Carnival Glory drydock 2021

In 2021 (June-July) Carnival Glory was drydocked at Chantier Naval de Marseille (CNdM Shipyard in Marseille France), mainly for general maintenance works.

Curiously, Glory became Carnival's second liner (after Magic) to change the old hull design (white hull, with a red line running its entire length) with the new trademarked livery (red-white-blue) introduced on Mardi Gras.

Carnival Glory refurbishment 2017 review

During drydock 2017 refurbishment (February 25 - March 10, done in Freeport Bahamas) the ship received the WaterWorks aqua park.

Carnival WaterWorks is an aqua park (open between 10 am – 5 pm) consisting of Splash Zone (fountains, water spray cannons, jets, splash pools), 1 kids pool, 2 mini racing slides for kids, Power Drencher (150-gallon / 570 liters tipping bucket that reverses poles to dump its huge amount of water at regular intervals), Green Thunder (187 ft / 57 m long thrill slide, water speed 25 mph / 40 kph, with a 34 ft / 10 m long drop), Twister Waterslide (spiraling tube, 214 ft / 65 m long, entrance level /ends on deck 10).
