Bad weather handled badly
Carnival Triumph Cruise Review to Canada, New England, New York
Sail Date: August 20, 2009
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship itself is mostly nice. It is clean and has some beautiful areas. However the hallways and theater seats are dreary and could use updating. The whirlpools (all 7) were out of order completely. The staterooms are relatively spacious and are kept clean. When it became clear that we could not continue to St John due to Hurricane Bill, the ship turned back 24 hours after we left New York. We were back off Long Island by the next afternoon. Rather than letting us off, the ship went in a circle, off Long Island from Saturday afternoon until early Monday morning. This was despite very heavy surf and some scary moments at the height of the storm. It was a miserable experience.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: The stewards and waiters/waitresses were helpful & attentive and the room was comfortable, clean & spacious
Cons: That they did not let us off the boat after cancelling the port of call stop and circled off Long Island for 2 days despite high waves and bad conditions.
