Ok so this was my third carnival cruise and despite all the negative reviews i went with an open mind. First glance at lobby area not really impressed but that was the only negative i have. We had an ocean view cabin very spacious clean and did not have any issues with air conditioner or toilet or smells as in some reviews. All food was good did not have a bad meal.. we chose only to go to buffet once for breakfast and it was fine. we did not encounter real long waits anywhere. I imagine that going in September is the reason as not a lot of children where aboard (this was a plus for us). I had no problem figuring out where everything was or how to get from one end to the other end of the ship and did not have a problem finding a lounge chair or dining table. We only ate at one specialty restuarant (italian) it was fine. I am going to say as far as dining except buffet of course amount of food you get is not overwhelming so if you really have a big appetite go to buffet for me it was enough food. Staff were very friendly and courteous. loved the red frog bar and the deli had awesome sandwiches. Don't expect this to be a 4/5 star voyage and you wont be disappointed.

    Our suite was exceptional and we really enjoyed our balcony. Embarkation was effortless as well as debarkation. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our favorite bar was Alchemy and the bartenders were superb! We didn't do any excursions, but we really enjoyed

    Beautiful refurbished ship. But took out dining room space, library and several other public venues to make more passenger cabins. A Very overcrowded feel all over ship. Also put in manual buttons to open automatic doors on Lido deck. Why have to touch a button to go in to

    We were excited because they were putting the Triumph into dry dock and and fixing it up. Well....They put it in dry dock and changed the name, but all they did was add more state rooms and some carpet and called it good. There is no place to sit on this ship! In the evenings
