Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Relaxing Cruise
It is against my nature to be critical but this cruise had way too many screw ups to fluff off for me. Several things were clearly not the fault of the cruise ship but someone should be able to ease the chaos of the boarding process! All of these ports should take a lesson from Seattle. I have cruised from NYC, Charleston, Ft Lauderdale, Miami, Port Canaveral, Tampa and now NOLA. TWO scanners for 3000 PAX Really? Get serious New Orleans. I saw 2 people pass out from standing in the ridiculously long lines for over 2 hours. They should have benches to allow the older pax to sit while to rest. OR better yet, board by group numbers, give a specific time to board, and stick to it.

Sail away was very nice. It was cold and windy and apparently 2 out of 10 pax can't seem to tear themselves away from their cell phones long enough to enjoy the scenery. We were able to go straight to our cabin after boarding. The cabin was comfortable had plenty of storage space. All of the dining room meals were very good. The servers were excellent and very attentive. The casino hosts were great. The games...not so much. I played (and lost) quite a bit and never noticed anyone winning anything big. Usually on a cruise the first nights produce some winners. Not noticeable here. I didn't make any of the shows. We did listen to the jazz band on several occasions and really enjoyed them. They also had karaoke at the casino bar that showcased some awesome passenger talent. I didn't appreciate seeing some women leaving the restrooms without washing their hands! Yuck I always enjoy Carnival cruise and this one was no exception. If you can't find something interesting to do it's your own fault.

The ports are a different matter...
