A Great Getaway with Friends

Sail Date: May 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Enjoyed the layout of the ship and how easily it was to navigate myself around.

Pros: Boarding and Departing process went very smoothly, thought it would be bad

Cons: Had balcony room right above music being played that went on until midnight. Hard to sleep and so going outside did not help much as the people on both sides were smoking big time.

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
Did not like going thru the casino to get to some places on deck 5 and there was too much smoking going on.
Food and Dining
Very good but there should have been more fresh vegetable options, mostly sauces were in the veggie selections. In the London room one of the waiters was named George and he was fabulous. Our last cruise there was never so much pushing of buying drinks like this cruise, I found it very annoying.
Service and Staff
No one stood out and we were offered one night to get a free drink and arrived 15 minutes late and they told us we were out of luck.
Not bad but there was an awful lot of Karioki and people were commenting that you pay for entertainment and the guests seem to be doing most of the entertaining. There were also couples in contests during several days that did entertain as well.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had a nice room and it was restful when not out on the balcony dealing with the heavy smokers.
