10 Night Eastern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (San Juan To Galveston)
Sail Date: January 27, 2016
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8437
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

With medical emergency and need to off load that passenger in Miami, we had to go full speed to get back to Galveston the last days and hit rough waters for over a day.  All safe in the end, but it was rough.  The whole island thing was a bit much, and San Juan was really bad due to the economy flop, so much shut down.  We did the 21 day turn around and our visit to Grenada on a Sunday is a total waste of time...it is totally shut down on Sundays...no ship should port there on Sunday.  Food and service very good and steward cabin service with Dann was outstanding.  Casino is too small and needs more slot machines.  Only announcements hear all over ship and in cabins was from captain, all others could not hear in cabins or in serveral areas as in casino.  Lobsters and grapefruit got smaller as trip extended in the 21 day turn around.  Overall pretty good trip, I don't think I would do a turnaround again.  Brought too many clothes...there were washer/driers on board ship and that was great...wish we were informed before we began trip.

OUTSTANDING, with the larger balcony with chase lounge and such we saw so many beautiful views of sunrise and set and blues of water from the engine wakes. The stars at night and all were just great. My wife sits on the balcony writing postcards to friends and family and loved it.
