Our first cruise on the Triumph and 6th cruise overall with Carnival. We always have balconies and this cabin seemed a little smaller in length than others. This is the first time we have ever stayed one floor below the lido deck because we have heard stories of deck chairs scraping the floor at 2am while they are cleaning. But we booked a last minute cruise and didn't get to pick our room.
Luckily we were not under an area where deck chairs were but we did hear a large rumble above us lots of times. Wondering what it was, we finally discovered it was the big pushcarts in the lido dining area they push plates around on. That happens at all hours of the day or night.
We really don't have big complaints with our cabin but were the most disappointed to find there is no refrigerator in the room. Our cabin steward Putu did make sure we had fresh ice twice a day and that helped. He cleaned up the room at least twice a day and turned down the bed. We noticed there were no robes in the room but heard others say you could request them.
The other things we noticed were just little cosmetic things, little pieces of trim missing in places, and the balcony door handle trim was coming loose and had been bent. The door had settled and the little latch you lock the door with would no longer engage because it didn't line up. So the balcony door was never locked. On every cruise we've been on, if we left the balcony door unlocked, the steward would have it locked when we returned. Not the case on this cruise since it was impossible to lock. We had no valuables in the room anyway so were unconcerned it didn't lock.
We are used to the bathrooms on Carnival and this one was not much different except it had a mirrored medicine type cabinet on once side of the sink instead of the 3 shelves on each side of the mirror like in other ships. The cabinet actually held more than the little shelves would have. The other thing was the shower control. I think it must have been retrofitted with a different control. There was a little warning sign in the shower telling you to set your shower at a certain degree setting however this shower control didn't have a degree setting. It was a simply a single handle you lift up and move left or right to get your temperature to feel right. I'm thinking the old control get replaced with this one.
There are two 120v receptacles on the desk/makeup table so that was handy because sometimes there is only one. I use a cpap machine so I always have to string an extension cord across the desk, down the cabinet, across the floor and then under the foot of the bed and tape it all down. It's nice to have an extra plug to use for the cord.
The bed was plenty comfortable and the A/C was adequate. We had heard other cruisers speak of sewage smells on some decks but we did not have that issue at all anywhere on the ship. Read Less
