Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by tomayzing
- Sail Date: January 2013
- Destination: Western Caribbean
We rarely saw our steward, and the rest of the staff, as a general rule, were less than cheery.
The on board credit of $50 for not sailing to Cozumel was like a slap in the face. Really? Fifty bucks?
So, after thousands of dollars spent, we basically went on a cruise around the Gulf of Mexico. Disembarkation was surprisingly easy, but after having changed our pick up time twice, (as the captain told us several different arrival times), the car service charged an additional $168. This was such a disappointing experience all around.
I will never, ever cruise with Carnival again. I understand that 'things happen', but they mismanaged this whole affair, and offered a minimal amount of recompense. Royal Caribbean will be our sole choice in the future.
And now, this morning, I read about this very ship, stuck in the gulf, being towed to shore. Guess they didn't get it fixed after all. So, I guess it could have been worse.....
