VERY Disapointed - All Around Bad Experi

Sail Date: March 15, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

There were so many issues I don't know where to start. First, no pull out in the stateroom, had to sleep on a VERY small couch. I had over $100 stolen in the casino and the Assistant Casino Manager treated me like dirt. Very dissapointed in the food, not at all good and nothing to speak of after 9pm.. Shore excursion was not as advertised. Was to be 4 hrs and Horseback riding in the ocean.... it was 6.5 hrs of which less than an hour was riding and the remainder of the time was spent "held captive" by the tour operators at their gift shop, beach and bar.

Pros: Dining Room Waiters

Cons: Cheated in the Casino-Spa Personnel

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.

Food and Dining
Poor quality, nothing but very bad pizza late.
Cabin / Stateroom
Paid for room with bed and sofabed - no sofabed
They had many stupid games.... nothing worth doing. Entertainment, with the exception of the piano bar, was marginal at best.
Ship Quality
Many public restrooms inoperable. Not very well decorated.
Children's Programs
Great if you need a babysitter for children under 10. Very poor for adolecents.
Service and Staff
With the exception of theAssistant Casino Manager who should not have a job working with people.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Total waste of time.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Pretty place, if all you want to do is shop
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beautiful beach but constantly being acosted by vendors. Very pushy sales people.
