The shows were very entertaining and enjoyable.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Cabin steward and dinning staff was very polite and attentive. However, it's not uncommon for the rest of the crew to treat you as a trespasser in their territory. It was very common for the bus boys and ship's lower ranking officers to walk right into you if you weren't careful or refuse to move if they were blocking a passageway. The ship's safety brief (muster) actually lasted about 5 minutes. You'll stand in a very crowded small space for nearly 30 minutes waiting for it to begin though. Not so hard on us younger people. It was a bit of a strain for the older folks though.

My wife had a great time with the Dolphin swim. I attended the Mexican cooking class. The class was fun but I didn't really learn anything.

Pros: Cruise director and staff very entertaining

Cons: Breakfast and Lunch buffets

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
