May 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Triumph
Older ship, food not so great, service not so great
This cruise was for our 1 year anniversary. For our honey moon we went on Royal Carribean Freedom of the seas. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable, and the activities were AMAZING! So we were kind of expecting the same thing. For a first time cruise we probably would have been more content. The food was O K. Not great but not bad. The service was O K. Our gentleman didn't introduce himself until day 2 and he still didn't clean our room until day 3 after asking. There was a smell of "poop" in our room and parts of the ship and my balcony smelled like urine. The people working there seemed to be very unhappy. The Airconditioner in the room worked on either on or off. That sucked bc it left us cold or hot. No in between.
There was a few perks, due to the size of the ship getting off was a breeze. There were no long lines. They had last minute excursions very inexpensive. We participated in 1 in Progresso. It sucked however we were gonna stay on the boat so the experience was worth it but only if you have absolutely nothing else to do.
