January 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Triumph
Some Good Some not so good
Room was nice and spacious.
The excursions were poorly organized. The ones united uses is the only one that is not at the dock waiting for people. We had to take a bus and the bus waited for over 30m before taking off so we missed our 1st excursion and that booked us on a lesser valued one.
the 2nd excursion was real nice though. Nice people but it was 1 hour late taking off.
food was not the best on the cruise. The steak i paid for was a terrible piece of meat.
on this ship, most people march through the casino. even small children. One of the best bands was in the casino. No real dance floor but everyone include young children hung out in the casino to listen to music until fairly late. i saw a couple of young kids at the slot machines.
the bartender at the alchemy (can't remember her name) was excellent. Very funny and creative
we did not like the fact that i could not choose where to eat. Unlike the Norwegian we had options and the ability to have a private dinner.
the spa had people marching through it even after a massage. you had to use the facility and in both cases, people were marching through the shower area in blue jeans and beers, etc.
the spa enticed you to sign up right away with deals but offered better deals later in the cruise.
