5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 14, 2013
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

My husband wanted to cruise and I simply had no interest. But I surprised him this Christmas.
The staff was efficient and kind. Only negative was the long lines at the coffee bar.
Food and service was excellent in the dining room. Met wonderful people.
Wasted money on the excursions but wanted to go through the ship our first time out. Will set them up on our own next time.
No real motion sickness although the waters were a bit choppy the first day.
The shows were okay. I would have liked a different type of music but understand that it's a buckshot approach.
Watch out for the cruise card. You can spend a lot of $$ before you know it.

dated but roomy and immaculate

Ship Tip

If you don't go for crowds and noise then hang out at the pools in the back of the ship.
