Trip Report Carnival Triumph/Excursions 10/16-10/23/10

Jump to last reply

This was a family trip, DH and I (both 39) and our daughters, 9and 7. We had never been on a cruise prior to this trip. It was also the first time we took the girls out of the country. DH and I have been to the Caribbean half a dozen times before but this was our first time in the Bahamas.

As for the ship, it was okay. I have nothing but resorts to compare it to, however, there was nothing really impressive about it. The pools were nothing more than over-sized hot tubs. I think that was the most disappointing part for our family. The girls really liked the water slide and had fun hoping around the "pools", but it wasn't enough to keep busy for a long time. They were not big fans of the "Camp Carnival" kids program, and there were not a lot of family activities. I think Carnival really wants you to put your kids in the kids program and enjoy some more adult activities. I was very surprised when they played a DVD of Woodstock on the big screen in the middle of the afternoon.

Our room was that...just a room but that was fine because we were hardly there. We had an internal room and were glad to have saved the money for excursions. The food ran from highs to lows. I would rate it consistenly 'OKAY". We did have lobster tail one night and lamb another. Both were wonderful. Prime rib twice, which was very good. Filets one night that were horrible. Tough and gross. Our wait staff was really great. We ate in one of the dining rooms most mornings and it was much better than a buffet. Service was a little slow but it was nice to sit and have food brought to the table.
