Carnival Triumph

November 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Eastern

Good Experience

Despite the fact I had some health issues, my wife and I enjoyed to cruise.  We found the staff very friendly, and helpful, especially in the medical center and guest services.  We liked the adequate variety of food locations, the "any time" dining.  Since we do not smoke, we did not like the fact that many activities were located mid-ship next to the casino.  Even just walking by to get aft or forward, was unpleasant to us.  Too bad Carnival can't find another location for those activities.  It would also be helpful if there were comfortable chairs located  on decks  3 and 4 so one could read and relax.  There are no "chairs" in the oceanview cabin and it is nice to get out of the cabin once in a while.

Island Princess

March 2015 - Island Princess to Transatlantic

Customer denied boarding

Due to not finding any porters to handle our luggage in the usual manner, my wife and I suffered in the heat and through long switchback lines to get to the ship. Upon stepping aboard the ship my wife fainted from dehydration and exhaustion.  The ship personnel gave good care but medical center insisted she go to local hospital to get checked out.  By the time she was declared OK and released from the hospital,, the ship had departed. The next port was over a week away.  We decided the cruise experience wasn't a good one so we flew back home. We have cruised on Norwegian, Carnival, Celebrity, and Holland America, some multiple times. We are experienced cruisers.  Princess was very attentive after the incident, but not before.  Attempts to arrange compensating cruise were unsuccessful.  Discussions  with Princess will continue, I hope with more positive results.
