We'd do it again.

Sail Date: September 01, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

My wife recently had knee replacement surgery and uses a cane. As soon as we entered the Carnival terminal she was given cheerful and comprehensive assistance. Our steward greeted us at the room and always addressed us by name throughout the tour. Our cabin was immaculate. Our wait staff was outstanding, and those pushing pricey drinks were not at all pushy about it. Deckhands were constantly cleaning and polishing and things were pretty much spotless. The ship is showing wear, with chipped statuary and ceilings needing paint, but overall we had no complaints.

Pros: The food and service ON THE SHIP couldn't have been better.

Cons: We were NOT met at the airport and had to prevail on another touring co. rep to help us. The one shore excursion we booked with Carnival [Salem Witch Museum] was so over-booked that it was an unpleasant experience. When my wife complained to a Carnival rep, he essentially called her a liar.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

I realize the need to augment profitability, but the bingo games preceeding theater events got old fast.

Wish our steward had shown us how to activate the AC the first day...
