7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 9 years ago

We sailed on the Triumph 10/26-11/02 and the staff was outstanding. Parts of the ship are refurbished and parts are a little worn, but very, very clean. The food in the Paris and London restaurants were very good and always tailored to our needs and cravings. The food poolside (burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and GREAT pizza) was better than any food chain back home.

The night life -- family and adult entertainment made our second cruise feel like as enchanting as our first. The lines are long at times, but the ship is enormous, so you move quickly to the seating areas.

Our first stateroom was noisy and our bed vibrated all night from the engines. When we brought this to the Purser's attention, they gave us top priority and moved us to a quieter area of the ship. This was a make-or-break situation, and they handled it very well. We are most appreciative.

Overall we have to say the ship was quite nice for being a 'Grand Dame' of 10 years! As always, the staff was wonderful -- from the room steward, to the bartenders, to the food staff.
