The staff who are in charge of service are truly AMAZING people and seem genuinely happy to pamper you for 5 straight days! If it would not have been for the staff, I would not have given the overall rating of would have been poor due to the horrible beds in our room.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The buffet on the Lido deck had a nice choice of dishes but it was always near cold and hardly every hot, with the exception of lasagna and casserole type dishes which hold their inner heat better.

Everything was too expensive! After the amount we had to pay to go on the cruise, you shouldn't then try to charge hundreds for photos...the constant picture taking and then trying to sell them is a racket and we did not purchase one photo.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff have a genuine servants heart and are so kind and desire nothing more than to see each guest happy.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The middle floors are so confusing because they don't go all the way across the ship. We didn't have the floors figured out until right before the end of the cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The bed was so uncomfortable that I may have gotten 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night. I have a pillowtop mattress at home and the bed in our room was a very firm bed.

Pros: Service staff was amazing!

Cons: Bed was HORRIBLY uncomfortable :(

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
