October 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western
There are several things that concerned us. First of all: there was no consistency in pricing on alcohol drinks. We would be charged anywhere from $6.95 to $7.25 for the same drink (at the SAME BAR sometimes) as well as at the other bars. The waiters on deck 9 were extremely lazy. on several occasions the waiter refused to go get ice cream cones for the machine -- they rudely told the passengers (especially kids, but also an adult) to go to the other machine. This was Cecil's first cruise and I so wanted it to be perfect, and this was our Honeymoon. I have been on at least 4 Carnival cruises, have cruised Royal Caribbean, Holland American, NCL Princess, Cunard and taken a barefoot cruise. This time the food was the worst I've ever had. I had bragged to Cecil about the wonderful food, so he thought I was crazy! I might pay a little more with the other lines, but compared to his particular cruise, it would well be worth it. Although I'm not sure I'll ever get Cecil to go again.
