Seasoned cruisers will be dissappointed.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

The crew was wonderful, but the cutbacks in the industry were very evident. The ship was in need of repair especially in the rear

Solarium pool area. The ceiling tiles were falling down and sticking out of the frames. It looked like they could fall on someone. Dining room food was mediocre. Prime rib was barely 1/4 inch thick and very small. I sent my food back on the 4th night  because my salmon was cold, small, and tasteless. Nothing special on the main menu that I couldn'the make  at home. No midnight or chocolate buffet anymore. No cruise videographer. Pool party was just music from a DJ. And a few songs from a band.  Wasn't sure what made it a party. 

Upon arriving in my balcony room, I found men's underwear, a sock, and garbage under my bed when I was putting my suitcase under the bed for storage. No toiletries were given.

The cruise was overall a good experience.  However, the ship needs updating and room service was horrible.  Anytime we called for room service, the hold time was in excess of 15 minutes.  One bucket of ice took 3 phone calls and 40 minutes.  The food was not as great as we have experienced on other cruises.

Mother's Day Memory

It was my mom's 1st cruise and her 1st trip out of the country. From the boarding personnel, to the cruise personnel, Cozumel, back on board and disebarkment back in the states, she was treated like royalty. You made her trip the memory of a lifetime.

This was a great cruise, this was my families first cruise and we are already wanting to do another. We had so much fun and the excursion we took in Cozumel was great.

Not a good experience!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date:

To start people were smoking marijuana and I had my kids with me... The balcony smelled like pot the hallway smelled as well... We had a light catch on fire in our room. It took 20 minutes for anyone to come take care of this. NOT SAFE! The AC wasn't working properly in our room. Several things that caused it to be unpleasant. If I had known this was a cruise where everyone could smuggle on drugs and use them freely around my children I would have gone on a different type of vacation.

Pack a small bag as a carry on with swim suits, sun block, motion medicine and any other essentials as your bags may not get to your room until nearly 6pm!! We did this, but other families in our group did not and their kids could not swim until 6pm because their swim suits were in their suit cases.

Every day I would go to the sandwich bar and get smoked salmon without the bagel. I love smoked salmon.
