Sail Date: Oct 2011
Cabin: Balcony

My husband and I had sailed late 2010 with some friends of ours. It was their first cruise, so I couldn't wait to introduce my best friend to all the things I loved about cruising. Well, it was a bust. I wish I could say that Hurricane Paula has been the worst part of it, but no. The staff and service had been deplorable, and I didn't think I was ever going to get them back on a ship at all, much less Carnival.

Well, we all agreed to give it one more try, so we scheduled the same cruise, same boat, leaving out of a different port. Given the fact that I don't see a lot of reviews regarding the Triumph, I was afraid that things had not improved much, and that people were probably opting to say nothing instead of something derogatory.......but I was wrong!

The Triumph and it's crew were outstanding! From Room Steward to Maire'D, everyone was fabulous. Now, I need to say that we are not those type of people who absolutely expect our rear-ends to be kissed the whole time. I expect friendly service, but I don't expect to make people feel that they are below me either, so we're pretty easy to please.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8F

No cover above balcony was NOT an issue at all, great location, easy access to outside deck and elevators, no noise at all, only wish we could have had the option to remove the partition between our cabins.
