Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by zsazsap
- Sail Date: December 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior Upper/Lower
We never even met our cabin steward and all in all, the staff was just not very outgoing or friendly. I wouldn't say they were unfriendly; they just didn't extend themselves. We were warned about revealing costumes before the illusionist's show so were prepared, but they really should have given the same warning about the show on the final night (New Orleans). Very risque costumes and certainly not a family-friendly production.
If we had not booked an excursion (NOT a Carnival one - through Auto Progresso) in Progresso, that port would have been a bust. Just a bunch of shops and a very long way from the town.
All in all, this cruise was nowhere near the quality we have experienced with Princess, Celebrity & Royal Caribbean. While I wouldn't say I was disappointed with the cruise, that's only because we were celebrating Christmas with our entire family and being together with no one having the burden of cooking and hosting made it all worthwhile. But I certainly won't go on this particular ship or cruise again, and will avoid using Carnival as much as possible (I am not always the decision maker for family cruises).
