Carnival Glory: Photo tour & overview
There's an entire palette of fun spots and activities you'll find on board Carnival Glory. A rainbow of salsa options for dressing up your tacos and burritos awaits at the very tasteful BlueIguana Cantina, while Guy's Burger Joint serves up burgers designed by the colorful personality himself: celebrity chef Guy Fieri. You will also enjoy a variety of stand-up comedians at The Punchliner Comedy Club Presented by George Lopez. Picture yourself grabbing a drink at the open-air RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar, whichever color's more your style. Represent your favorite team's colors on screen and enjoy a round or two at the EA SPORTS Bar. Enjoy a show on the stage at Playlist Productions, complete with singing and dancing, plus video screens that bring these productions an extra splash of color. And if a picture paints a thousand words, imagine the millions flying off the big screen during a film under the stars at Dive-In Movies.
From the people-watching potential of the Lido Deck, to the see-and-be-seen White Heat Dance Club, Carnival Glory has something for everyone. It even shows its true colors with sit-down dining options like the Emerald Room Steakhouse and the aptly-named Golden and Platinum Restaurants.
