I so wish I could remember each and every staff members name that we came into contact with on this ship. They were all absolutely fabulous ! Let me start by saying that this was our first cruise, and will certainly not be our last. Our itinerary was from Galveston to Cozumel and back to Galveston. Our stateroom was an OceanView on the Main Deck (Deck 2), #2407. The Captain was Capt. Bonilla from Italy.

After reading many, many reviews on Carnival and the Triumph, I was just a little concerned with some of the negative reviews about sewage smell, bad food, bad service, etc. My fears were soon put to rest on day one ! The ship is beautiful and it was very clean. The staff managed to keep up with the 2500+ guests the entire trip. There was no sewage smell anywhere on the ship that I noticed (except a slight odor on our debarkation day in the bathroom only).

Our room steward and his cleaning staff were excellent !! We never wanted for anything. If I did, all I had to do was ask. And the towel art and animal creations that were left in our room each night were a great added touch !! It was so nice to come back to a clean room with one of those sweet creations and chocolate mints on the bed each night.
