Review Summary

My cruise was great. I was with a family of 12 and we were a mix of seasoned cruisers and beginners. My major compliant was we purchases drink packages and we were aware that they end at 8 am on debarkation day, however; since the ship had technical difficulties and we were told we would not be arriving back until 10 pm that night the packages should have ended then. They did not, but ended at 8 am on our scheduled debarkation date and time. It was through no fault of the passengers that we were stuck on the ship, but we had to pay for all of our drinks for the next 10 to 12 hours.

The embarkation process was quick and easy. Carnival always does a great job of getting us on the ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
This was my fifth Carnival cruise and the dining room and staff was awesome as usual, but I do think it's time for Carnival to change the dining menus and offer different selections. We had young children with us this trip and there was hardly anything they wanted to eat. We only ate in the dining room two night because we were bored with the menu and the kids did not want anything on the menu.

Onboard Activities

I enjoyed the comedy show, karaoke show, and music shows.

Ship Tip

I strongly recommend that Carnival decommission the Triumph. This was my second time on the Triumph and both time there was technical difficulties. I understand things happen and I am gratetul we made it home, but this ship has had to many issues.
