Carnival Glory is a Conquest-class cruise ship that was built by Fincantieri in Monfalcone, Italy. She is owned by Carnival Corporation & PLC and operated by Carnival Cruise Lines.


Some features of the Glory include nightclubs, duty-free shops, four pools, seven whirlpools, and a 214-foot water slide. Sixty percent of her staterooms have ocean views and sixty percent of those feature private balconies.[4][5]

The Carnival Glory was last drydocked in January 2010. During that time, hull structure maintenance was conducted as well as underwater hull equipment inspections and underwater hull painting. The ship also received her Seaside Theater on Lido Deck 9 overlooking the main pool. In addition, she received the Circle C club for kids 12-14 and 18 balcony cabins.[6] [7]

Currently, Glory's home port is Miami and New York, and has been since 2009. She currently sails two alternating 7-day Caribbean itineraries from Miami and Canada & New England itineraries from New York.[8][9] In November 2009, Glory was redeployed to Miami, replacing the Carnival Triumph. The Carnival Glory was redeployed to Miami to make room for Carnival's newest ship, the Carnival Dream in Port Canaveral.[10] Later in June 2010, Glory will be doing summer cruises out of New York City, replacing the Triumph for Canadian-bound cruises.
