Exceptional cruise

Sail Date: March 12, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We enjoyed almost everything on the cruise although we don't drink or party as a rule. But we liked the buffet and dinners in the dining rooms. We enjoyed making friends at dinner as well. We found the service to be friendly, and the staff is extremely hard- working. Phenomenal actually. Overall, we had a great time except for listening to children screaming while we were trying to get to sleep. Also, the little ones were in the hot tub that was supposed to be adults only. Staff did ask them to get out, but they got right back in. So we didn't get to enjoy the hot tubs. Why couldn't senior citizens be given cabins away from the kids? We are in our sixties and just wanted to get some sleep at night.

Pros: The endless food of course and just being on the water.

Cons: The children who were not being supervised by their parents.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Food and Dining
We enjoyed the dining room experience, however, it was a bit loose at times. Example: My husband got his requested potato with sour cream along with his dessert. We did laugh over that. But meals weren't delivered at the same time. The staff was friendly and willing though.
Ship Quality
Hard- working staff kept the ship very clean almost continuously. And they always greeted the passengers. We liked that. Anything we needed, they got for us.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, large enough, comfortable, a big window -- along with expert service from staff, everything was fine in our cabin (except the screaming and rowdy kids at night).
Service and Staff
Very friendly, very sweet people, getting whatever we needed for us. Attention to detail was phenomenal.
