5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 18, 2012
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship was clean, staff very very very helpful and nice. Never book the 7th floor. The 7th floor is under the all wood 8th floor which is the floor for the pool and buffet, plus all night food area. If you sleep on the 7th floor, you will hear the staff food carts rolling along the floor the entire night. Also, our room was near the stairs and elevators... you also hear loud talking in that area.

However, the cruise staff was always helpful, plenty to do on the ship. The ship was very clean. Remember, this is not a 5 star floating hotel, however, for the price of the cruise the rooms are great, and the food is very good. Be sure to go to the back of the ship and sit and enjoy coffee in the morning, it provides a beautiful view. In addition, if you sit in the back of the ship, you will see the flying fish feeding on the food that the ship recycles back to the ocean.

Also, as soon as you get on the ship, be one of the 12 lucky people to book dinner with the Executive Chef.... YOU WILL BE AMAZED. His food that he prepares for the lucky 12 is at least 6 Stars. When you see the kitchen, you will understand what a real Galley Kitchen is all about. The size of the kitchen that delivers 4K meals per day will shock you.

Food and Dining

Considering they serve 4K meals per day\, they did a pretty good job on the food. They had a very attentive service staff to handle the many requests and needs of the guests.

Plenty to do on the ship. Make sure to shop the last day at sea\, the discounts are over the top great. If you choose to go off the ship to the site see\, remember in August and September it is so so so hot... be ready for that.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I can not say enough about the wonderful and attentive staff. Everyone was pleased that you selected Carnival Cruise Line\, and they made sure that you understood and felt their gratitude. They were happy to be of service to you. You were always given a hearty hello\, how is your day\, may I help you?. They did not say it because it was a requirement\, rather\, they really wanted to help you and make sure you had a great vacation.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Super clean ship. The rooms are kept clean at all times. I never had any concern about illness because of the how clean they keep the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an Ocean View Balcony... it was clean\, great view\, and the room itself had a ton of storage and very large. It may cost more\, but you will be very glad you had the extra space and closets.

Pros: I love helpful/friendly Staff

Cons: Noise all night long from Deck above Staff Stocking 8th Floor Food Areas
