Great time had by all, we were travelling with guests from Canada and England for a holiday/birthday/reunion! This is our fourth cruise with Carnival and the experience was one of the best we have had. We chose this itinerary to accomodate everyone in our group from a 9 month old to adults ranging in age from 40-55. The ship "Triumph" was very nice compared to others we have been on. The only critisicm I have is the dinner menus were not as appealing as others. I was very pleased that between our Alaska Air/Cruise and Carnival consultants they were able to arrange for seating for all 28 of our guests to sit in the main dining room in very close proximity with all our tables next to each other!! The ports of call were fabulous except for San Juan, it would have been nice to explore this port during the daytime as opposed to the evening as the shops were preparing to close when we arrived. Technically we felt there was only two port stops on this itinerary instead of three. The staff on the ship were wonderful and very pleasant, we always experienced smiles from everyone. Due to some early risers we were always able to get multiple lounge chairs for our days at sea so we had atleast 16 chairs to enjoy the sun and watch the fun events that were happening on the Lido deck. The cocktail waiters were fabulous and made our guests feel special, especially when they remembered what drinks we were drinking from the previous days and even addressed some of us by our names which they remembered without even looking at our sail and sign cards! For some of the guests, in fact all of the England group this was their first experience cruising and they really enjoyed themselves and all of them commented on how they will definately do it again. We are planning another reunion and hope to sail the Southern Caribbean on Carnival, next time there will be more guests joining our group and we are all looking forward to this event. Thanks to Alaska Cruise and Carnival for making this such a memorable trip and we look forward to many more!!
