An "ok" cruise

Sail Date: October 01, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Our first cruise with Carnival...very disappointing! They definitely lived up to their party reputation. If you didn't want alcohol they weren't interested in helping you. They like everyone to be drunk, so they don't notice the terrible service! They close the pools at different times. And they close the towel hut before the pools close, and tell you not to bring towels from your room ??? After cruising with Royal Caribbean, this was a big disapointment!

Pros: Beautiful balcony stateroom

Cons: Customer service. Food on buffet.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.

Service and Staff
Only interested in helping you if you bought alcohol from them.
Ship Quality
Very awkward layout, diffiult to navigate. Mostly clean, except for public restrooms.
Food and Dining
Great food in the dining room, but everywhere else was poor to mediocre. The pizzeria had the worst pizza we've ever eaten. The room service menu was very limited.
Cabin / Stateroom
The one bright side was our room, it was beautiful, and we loved the balcony.
