Another wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: January 30, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

It seems that the Triumph had a lot of little things breaking down during the entire cruise - the ice cream machine, ceilings leaking, juice machine not dispensing, hot tub closed, ice machine not working, etc. Seemed like there was always something wherever we went on the ship. The carpet on the Riviera deck was coming off the walls in the hallways (we had friends on this deck we visited), room number placards were missing or falling off on several different rooms on different decks. We had one night where we our steward did not come to the room to clean, turn down bed covers or make an animal!! This is probably trivial to most, but we had become expectant of this service. We love cruising with Carnival and hope that these comments are taken as constructive and used to better the cruise line. Our previous four trips on the Ecstasy and Conquest were the most awesome vacations we have taken and we guess they spoiled us.

Pros: The shows, (comedy, dancers). Our assistant waiter was absolutely awesome - knew our names, likes and dislikes - it was amazing!! The cruise director Tex was a hoot!! We were late getting into the port due to fog, but the debarkation was flawless - thank you Triumph for that!!!

Cons: The individual service from the room stewards was not as good as it was on the Ecstasy and Conquest. It seemed to lack a personal one on one touch we have had in the past. On the five days that we were on the ship, we never met our room steward.
