Nice Cruise

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

My only complaint is about boarding the ship in New Orleans. We waited in line for a half hour to get in the building, about an hour to get through security and at least 2 hours to get to an agent. This was not a good start. Everyone was very friendly and helpful when you reached their area, but the wait was still too long.

Pros: Excellent decor, many activities, pleasant service

Cons: Long lines to board

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Food and Dining
On cruises, they generally present you with quantity, not necessarily quality, but the food here was not bad. We had some great things (duck) and some "ok" things (noodles from the noodle bar). We couldn't complain about the food on this cruise at all. They were fairly quick with service, except at seated dinner where they allowed you to relax through the courses.
The schedule was packed. We participated in the trivia and a few other games. There was pretty much always something going on. We saw two shows, which were great and the comedians they booked were so funny.
Ship Quality
The ship was immaculate and beautiful. We loved the decor, especially the oyster shell ceiling in the Big Easy Bar. Some places were hard to get to, because you had to go one floor up or one floor down and go to the other end, but that is to be expected.
Cabin / Stateroom
We chose get an inside stateroom, because we never spend much time in the room. I wa pleased with this room. It was clean, spacious and I had no problem at all. Even the shower was spacious. The hair dryer stunk, but next time I'll just bring my own.
Service and Staff
The staff was excellent. We had a good time playing the games with them and they were friendly and open to talk at any other time. The bar staff was always jovial and friendly, even after a long day.
