Good....but could be better!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
Just got off the Triumph this morning. She is a very nice ship with lots of things to do. This is my third cruise, second with Carnival, and I must say that this cruise will be just memorable. Jorge, the cruise director, is probably the best cruise director I have ever had onboard a ship. Very very funny and full of energy. We booked a guarantee interior room and got an interior category 4J but the room has full size window overlooking the bow of the ship. We were located directly below the bridge. The rooms were very good in size and gave ample storage space with lots of hangers. VERY GOOD ROOM FOR THE MONEY!
The food was hit or miss. It was either really really good or just okay. The selections are average from my past cruises. 24 hour ice cream/pizza is a nice perk we used often. Pizza is nothing to get excited about. It was often cold and not very good. The dining room staff was good as usual and the South Beach Restaurant food was not really as good as past cruises. Not More very many selections and never really varied the desserts from day to day.
The ship itself is very big. It has a Seaside Theater on the Lido Deck, 9 hole mini golf course, basketball court, running track, gym.....the list goes on. There are 12 elevators on the ship for fast access. The ship is very difficult to get around on. The layout is very poor for accessibility. Be open minded when getting around. I did figure it out about the 3rd day of the cruise. The ship had a sewage smell on most decks after about day 5 that could make you nauseated. Overall, the cruise was a good cruise. It had its few problems, but what cruises don't? I would sail on her again in the future. Staff was exceptional on entertaining. Less
