The Carnival Glory was last drydocked in November 2012. During that time, the RedFrog Rum Bar, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Alchemy Bar, EA Sports Bar, Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, Punchliners Comedy Club & Brunch presented by George Lopez, Hasbro, The Game Show, Playlist Productions, DJ IRIE were added.
Currently, Glory's home ports are Miami, Boston, New York, and Norfolk. 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. Later in June 2010, Glory began doing summer cruises out of New York City, replacing the Triumph for Canadian-bound cruises. The Carnival Glory also has cruises out of Norfolk in both October & May.
In 2014, Glory is planned for being based year round out of Miami. As a result, Carnival will not seasonally have the ship sailing in Norfolk, Boston, New York, and other areas of Canada and New England. A possible reason would be due to Carnival Liberty repositioning to Port Canaveral at that time and Carnival Splendor offering more destination choices from New York.
