October 2014 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Triumph
Well my first cruise was not the one. A few issues did effect how I will choose a ship with Carnival. 1. they said your room stewards were the best. I never meet mine. 2. As for drinking to party on the Carnival "PARTY" ship Triumph. A stupid rule of all persons in stateroom must buy the drink package. What if your stateroom partner can NOT drink due to medical or the chip from AA in his pocket. Carnival just did not care. 3. Trying to get off the ship at port/home was not at all easy. Out of your room by 8:30am but your luggage had to be picked up the night before by 11pm. Was not ready for that and had not planned on how to carrying pj's, clothes from day before and toiletries items off the ship, REALLY? Learned a lot for sure. Just wish I could have known more before sailing. Next time will be different.
