Sailing with Tropical Storm Lee: Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by Tropstorm Lee
Overall Member Rating
Sailing with Tropical Storm Lee
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
The food was pretty good, the service in the main dining halls was More impeccable. We chose any time dining, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The warm melting chocolate cake was the best thing I have ever eaten, and my husband thought the same thing.
Our only problem was that when we were ready to disembark, we were late (4:45 p.m instead of 8 a.m.)getting into port due to weather conditions, and they closed the Mississippi river until Monday morning. This caused chaos with people shoving their way off the boat instead of waiting to be called by decks. This was my only problem with this cruise. The fact that they did nothing to correct the problem was more than irritating. We waited for over 4 hours before we could get off the boat and then had to drive 6 hours to get home. I felt sorry for those who missed their plane, or had to go to school or work the next morning. In the future, I may choose to go with a different cruise line to have something to compare Carnival against. I loved cruising and am looking forward to my next adventure. Less
Cabin review: 8A6386 Balcony
Loved the balcony view. This really helped due to horrible weather conditions. Spent most of my time out on the balcony, and now I am spoiled. Really quiet (except for the people next to us) and lots of fun ;)! Lots of closet and drawer space in the cabin. Nice sized bathroom. Highly recommend a balcony if you can.Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
