October 2015 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Western
This was our first time on the Carnival Freedom and cruising during Halloween. Would I do it again, yes on both counts. We had fun but there were a couple of things that was off pudding.
The Sun King Steakhouse was so good and worth every penny we paid for it. The main dinning hall on Captain's Night was not. Have never had dry, tasteless duck before. We only ate in the main dinning hall once. (Missed the lobster.)
Was over crowded due to the Zydeco group of over 700 folks so hard to move around some times.
Overall we had a great time (even if the Cowboys lost again.)
A true fan of Carnival and waiting on being Platinum real soon. LOL
July 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western
Don’t get me wrong we had a great time but it’s time for the Triumph to get some additional upgrades. We didn’t book any excursions this trip because we really wanted to be lazy. Hang out at the pool when everyone was off of the ship. Had a blast with the pool and the waterslide to ourselves. No lines to the bar (YES!!!).
Here are a couple of things that need to be changed on the Carnival Triumph. (This might not happen until she leaves Galveston.)
Bring on the new Wi-Fi package please. 50+ dollars and the Wi-Fi speed was like dealing with old school dial up. Really slow and way over price.
Bring on the new Room Service menu! Continental Breakfast again, Please…
Some changes need to be made soon to the menu for the buffet and main dining hall.
Purchase some new games for the ships library. (Yes, we do play the board games in there sometimes)
I’m sure these changes are coming soon but not soon enough for me. Like I said we still had a great time! Keep Cruising!
Cabin 9243 and ready for the good time.
Love the duck so I ordered 3 of them.
Cute Towel Animal
Me, Carnival Magic and Carnival Triumph
November 2014 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western
August 2014 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western
Overall this was a fun cruise and I don't have much to complain about. We enjoyed Cozumel, and Grand Cayman as usual. Jamaica we had a couple of issues but still had fun. The Magic was lovely as always with plenty to do and see. (No, I did not do the sky rope walk this time. Never again! LOL!)
Only true issues: We did not see our cabin Stewart for the first two days. The food in the main dining area was good but not the best.
Happy with: The Steak House "Cowboy Steak" was the best and so worth the extra money. Seaside grill was so good and the Italian restraint was great. Really good show of illusion. (fireworks on a ship)
We really did enjoy ourselves. http://cruiseradio.net/episode-carnival-magic-review-passport-questions/

November 2013 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean
To start off with Guy’s Burger is so worth it!
This was the first time I’ve been on the Triumph since the power shut down early this year. We really did enjoy the changes to the lido deck. Adding the Guy’s Burgers and the Iguana Bar was a great idea. Moving the hot tubs away from the pool was a good idea as well. Thank you Carnival for adding a real sports bar! I was packed so I could not watch the Texans lose again but that was okay.
The rest of the ship looks the same included the old school televisions. (Where are the flat screens people?) The Ocean View was just perfect for us so we can’t complain about that. Well except for the TV.
We had a really good time and ate maybe one to many Guy’s burgers. If you get a chance to do Cozumel’s Mr. Sanchos Beach All Inclusive Day Pass, do it. So much fun at Mr. Sanchos…..
