Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The London Dining room was amazing! We loved having the same wait staff, and assigned (private) table. The staff was attentive, friendly, and entertaining.

Awesome magic show with very sexy dancers- (a little much for a family show-- but it just shows how versatile the dancers are: the night before the show was wholesome and almost "Disney-esque.")

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My kids didn't feel like participating. They preferred to play mini golf with us, which isn't a bad thing!

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Really large ship, clean, cool glass elevator But too confusing trying to get to the Paris Dining Room

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We are so happy that we upgraded to the 10th floor Panorama deck (from the 2nd floor). We had a balcony, and our room was quiet, and seconds away from the pool and a quick walk to the buffet. We looked forward to our towel animals at night.

Bay of Fundy and Village of St. Marin was very good (5 hrs). Included lunch (seafood chowder), walking on the beach (rock, ocean floor when the tide is out). Interesting to the kids.
3 out of 5
Halifax is beautiful, quiet, and clean. It was unseasonably hot and humid, so we walked around at the harbor and shops, and then went back to the pool!

Pros: All inclusive, service, waterslide, 24 hour soft serve

Cons: pool water was salt water, smaller than expected

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!
