Our family was luck to get a waiter for the formal dining room that was outgoing and fun!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We found most places easily and were impressed with the decor

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a balony room in the rear of the ship. We enjoyed the panoramic rear view of the sea and were pleased with how quiet it was for sleeping.

Ports Of Call

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We enjoyed Coral World and the beach right next to it. It was our first experience snorkling and was quite enjoyable.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

1 out of 5
We arrived after 5:00 p.m. and most attractions were closed. We took a cab to one of the public beaches, but it was not a pleasant experience. I would probably not want to visit San Juan again.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
We rented a car and drove around the whole Island. We went to Yellow Beach and really enjoyed the snorkling.

Pros: the food, the rooms with balcony, the entertainment, just everything!

Cons: the professional photographers/quality and long lines to purchase

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!
