Fun cruise, great 1st cruise for kids.

Sail Date: July 13, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

Things have changed in ten years. The quality of the service and food has declined dramatically on Carnival. But overall, we had a good time. Excellent family vacation.

Pros: The price of a penthouse suite was reasonable

Cons: Quality of the food

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
Captain steamed slowly and much more motion than on prior cruises. I have concerns regarding the mechanical maintenance of this vessel. There was a constant vibration aft, and even though the sea state was relatively calm we had significant motion throughout. Doubt stabilizers were deployed.
What you would expect.
Children's Programs
Although the staff were excellent with the children the activities were meagar and not always age appropriate for 6-9 year olds.
Food and Dining
Portions in the dining room were small and food quality was hit or miss. The drinks were GREAT!
Service and Staff
Good service, not great.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a suite, which I strongly reccomend if trvelling with children comfortable for a family of 4.
Saint John, New Brunswick
The Bay of Fundy/ Hopewell Rocks is a 2 hour ride each way for 1 1/2 hour visit. If you don't make it at low tide, you're wasting your time and money.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Lobster and Lighthouse was excellent!
