A horrible cruise!

Sail Date: May 10, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was falling apart, the staff was unknowledgable and rude. We had a couple of staff members that were very helpful, however there were several members of the staff that didn't have a clue. The spa was never open so that we could book a massage - until the very last day, the pools on board were always closed while we were at sea. The food on the buffet was not tasty, however the food in the dinning room was good (EXCEPT FOR THE STEAKS, VERY TOUGH). All in all I can't say that I was impressed with Carnival Triumph at all... oh and this was our first cruise.

Pros: The ports of call

Cons: The ship, we had a lot of problems with the ship!

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.

Grand Turk Island
This port was beautiful, you have to be very careful when you get in the water, the beach area is very rocky - easy to jam a toe...
Don't Miss: Margerittaville!
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
We absolutely loved this port, everything was beautiful!
Don't Miss: the beach!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Another port that was fantastic, we are looking at taking a weeks vacation just to this island.
Don't Miss: The sites from the lookout points!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Not a lot to do in the port or it could be that we were only here for 5 hours.
Don't Miss: Rain forrest
