An excellent cruise

Sail Date: February 13, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Our other cruise was a 7 day on Rhapsody of the Seas and this cruise was more relaxed. We chose not to do the dress up dinner but were well taken care of in the cafeteria. We enjoyed the casino and played bingo for one session. Dining our own time was great as we got to meet new people every evening. We especially enjoyed the show Friday night - the first one we attended as we are "early to Bed" folks. We had our last breakfast in the Paris dining room and enjoyed being served instead of standing in line at the South Beach Cafeteria. All ship's personnel were accommodating and cheerful. If we could only avoid that day of debarcation - that really gets tedious!

Pros: It is wonderful being waited upon, not having any responsibilities other than to appear for dinner.

Cons: The noise on the Lido deck when they were showing movies, etc., talking with another person was nearly impossible.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

What happened to the show just after the 6 o'clock meal? We older folks couldn't make it to the 10 o'clock so missed all until the last day when I convinced my husband to stay up a little later.
Ship Quality
One thing: We went to the library several times to get some reading material and the cabinets were all locked and no one in attendance - even though the sign said that puzzles and games were available.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
We enjoyed the size of our balcony room on deck 10. Pim kept it in great shape for us.
