Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by Amy0203
- Sail Date: September 2015
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior
The ship itself was clean, however it was clear that the carpets had not been replaced after the fire incident that left water standing in all the hallways. There was a clear water line all the way down the hall. The AC in the room and in the hallways was non-existent. However, anywhere that they wanted you to spend money (read casino and bars) the AC was frigid to the point of being uncomfortable.
The embarkation process was delayed by more than an hour due to the computer being down not allowing them to get the previous guests off. During muster station safety drill we were left outside packed in three deep with no air flowing for almost 45 minutes while they rounded up the stragglers in order to start the drill. (On the Magic muster drills are done indoors)
Now for the good - the casino staff is FABULOUS. Personable, entertaining, engaging. Everything the rest of the ship staff was lacking. Several of the casino dealers should have been the cruise director because they were far more engaging then the cruise director, was. Tijana in the Alchemy Bar is legit. Don't bother going to another bar on the boat, she's the only one that can make a decent drink (or make more than one at a time).
All in all we had a good time, but Carnival's got some work to do on this ship!!
