great variety of activities for all ages and backgrounds.

Cons: different waiters for everything in dining room (i.e. one for alcohol\, one for food and various for refill or water or non alcoholic drinks etc.)

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!

Ship Quality
the decks with buffet lines sometimes seemed dirty to the eye and the music was slightly too loud...volume seemed the same in the day than at night\, I personallly expected softer in the day time\, so when I found the other pool I spend my days out there instead of the other one with video.
Food and Dining
great presentation of food in the dinning rooms!
Cabin / Stateroom
slept four and we had enough space for the number of days. great use of all space areas didn't feel crowded.
Service and Staff
our floor attendant always tended to our needs\, and at dinner one gentleman went out of his way to accommodate our requests and explain the process and obstacles involved to help expedite our needs in the future.
great variety overall. great quality in musicianship in the rome lounge acts (triumph dancers\, vocalist and band). Great quality of presentation for all except female comedian that night. However\, musicianship and equipment for karaoke or other variety and latin bands needed polishing and better quality in vocals and musicianship and preparation to give a quality performance. However\, the bass player in the variety band by the casino area was fantastic. We had no choice but to pay attention as we walked by the first time and notice his authentic interest in his instrument and how it could compliment and enhance each song and the band as a whole. No other musician in any of the bands seemed to take a personal interest. Although\, they were good at their instrument\, their interpretations and performaces seemed ritualistic and routine.
