Overall, I would probably not opt for another Carnival cruise. Some aspects were great, but my overall impression one day after the cruise is a let down.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food on the buffet lines was good, but didn't vary a great deal day-to-day.I was disappointed in the food in the evenings. We had the late seating in the Paris dining room. Of the four nights we ate there, I can only remember one really good meal. The rest of the evenings had only average meals. The presentation wasn't interesting, portions very small. Wait staff was wonderful.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My 11 year old grandaughter enjoyed most of the children's program. It occasionally bored her, but for the most part, she enjoyed meeting friends she could hang out with and had a good time.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very friendly and helpful in every way.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was larger than I had expected. I opted for a balcony for the first time, and that was a treat. The decor was okay, some of the stools, etc. a bit worn, but overall just fine.

Pros: Friendliness of staff

Cons: Food

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
