  3. Carnival Triumph
Ok, this was our 2nd Cruise on Carnival and the First out of New Orleans. Embarkation process was a little slow compared to Mobile Alabama. The Ship was nice and clean. After being on the ship for about 2 hours and Sailing through a torrential rain storm, we visited the Spa on the 11th Floor. The Spa had rain water pouring through the ceiling which drenched the entire Spa Reception desk and surrounding area. Friends staying on the 9th Floor reported rain water leaking down stairwells. The Bar adjacent to the Casino was flooded by what appeared to be Rain water on Day 6 of our Cruise. The Lido Deck 24 hour beverage stations were constantly down for cleaning/repairs. I agree with other Cruisers that the Triumph has issues with walking from one point to the other on the same level without having to constantly ride elevators. The Promenade (Deck 5) appears to be the most easily traveled from one end of the ship to the other. We had the Late Seating formal dinner each night in the London Dining Room. Service was good. The Waiters sang/danced each night for entertainment. The Waiters and Staff did the same songs/dances as on our 1st Cruise. Carnival might want to consider annual changes to keep prior passengers entertained. I visited the Spa for a Massage. I was disappointed by the massage room. I felt sorry for the Massage Therapist since she had towels all over the floor around the shower stall which was overflowing with backed up water in the drain. Cruise Director Jorge apparently has the same script (including jokes) as on our first Cruise. Had this been our 1st Cruise on Carnival our Review would have been better. But seeing and hearing the same entertainment on a different Carnival Ship was a bit boring considering this cruise was 14 months after our 1st. The Crew on Carnival Triumph do a great job, but we did not feel the same Spirit as Crew on the Carnival Holiday. Disembarkation was smooth and easy in New Orleans, no problems there.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1215
First Floor (Rivera Deck) Very clean and spacious, lots of storage. We had 2 port holes that gave us a good view.
