Cruise to Canada

Sail Date: August 15, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was huge and a little confusing. But, not using the elevator and walking the steps was great exercise. Our balcony was a good escape from the crowd when we wanted it. The kayak shore excursions were really terrrific.

Pros: We did kayaking trips in St. John and Halifax. Both were terrific.

Cons: There were long lines for the buffets. But the food was great.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was very clean and over the top "Las Vegas" style. The cigar lounge was very awful and smelly. You needed to walk through it to get to the dining room.
Food and Dining
The food was good and they accommodated my non dairy diet. The regular desserts were just so so, and there was only fruit or awful sherbert on the non dairy menu.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, roomy, great balcony. The bed was a little hard.
Service and Staff
All of the staff were wonderful.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Kayaking was about 45 minutes away and was really great. They were supposed to provide a lobster lunch and there wasn't enough food for everyone. We didn't have time to see everything in Halifax like the cemetery and the Citadel.
Saint John, New Brunswick
There really wasn't much in St. John that was of any interest. The General Store museum was nice and the market was nice for lunch. We went kayaking about 20 minutes out of town, which was wonderful.
Don't Miss: Kayaking
