Review Summary

~~We just got home from our Spring break cruise with Carnival Triumph and I just want to say...stop complaining and enjoy! We did, every single minute, even if the ship sailed out late, due to late arrival because of fog in Galveston and rain on the first sea day.. but that's nothing to do with Carnival crew, they did everything possible to make the time as enjoyable as possible. We were updated on everything what was going on with the delay and during the cruise.
The crew on the ship was fantastic and service minded, our cabin steward Made became our friend during the 5 days in the boat. From the moment we arrived, we had not to ask for anything, he did everything  to make out stay as comfortable as possible, getting new pool towels when they were wet, cleaning the room several times a day, getting ice buckets and even creating the fun towel animals. We have two girls 10 and 13 years old and the youngest loves monkeys and she happened to mention that... and guess what, when we came back to our cabin, there was a towel monkey by her bed.
We had early dining at Paris dining room and had the same table every day, our servers Gerald and Lara were fantastic... they remembered our names from the first day ( and we are European, so our names are not easy to pronounce) and our preferences on food and wine, and the service was fast and accurate. And the food was really good. My favorite part was, that it was possible to get Healy alternatives every day and they were interesting and tasty.
During the days, the food options were plenty and everything we tried was high quality and tasty, We loved the noodle bar and Blue Iguana kitchen.
The breakfast buffet was great, lots of healthy alternatives and the brunch during the sea days was excellent. We never had to stand in long lines for food.
Our favorite place on the boat quickly became the Alchemist Bar, where bartender Milosz mixed the most amazing cocktails and immediately remembered our names and what our preferences were. 
The entertainment on the boat offered good variety, we loved the comedians and magician.
We did one of the excursions Carnival offered in Progresso and it was fun and well planned.
We are already planning our next cruise and we know we can trust Carnival Cruises.
Thank you for everything!
