January 2016 - 11 Night Southern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (Galveston To San Juan) Cruise on Carnival Triumph
We sailed out of Galveston Jan 16th, 2016. We stayed in a balcony room on the 8th floor/starboard/forward. With the history of this boat, I expected it to be immaculate and appear completely refurbished. Not so much. The bed (2 twins pushed together) had a ridge down the middle that felt like bare metal w/very little padding, and both mattresses had huge dents in the middle. We did not sleep well. The bathroom was an orange-y/pink color straight out of 1974. There was a sewer-esque smell that lingered in the hallway the entire cruise. Other than these issues, it was a great cruise. No major snags at all. The ports were amazing (we enjoyed Bonaire, in particular).
