4 Night Canada/New England (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 07, 2009
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago

When we first arrived, the boarding as orderly and fast. The ship was well maintained and accommodating. We found some design choices of the signs and directions a little confusing and questionable. The signs were quite hard to read (neon lights that glow?) and may not have been the best choice for signage. The other issue was the amount of signs and how the ships flooring design from getting to one part of the ship to another was very odd as you needed to go up and down to go on the same floor. We were not the only confused ones as others had the same issue.

The service and food on the other hand was very good and the people extremely friendly. The Camp Carnival was very good for all kids. There were plenty to do if the weather is good.

St. John was a nice little town and the port excursions were plenty and helpful.

Would recommend again.
