This was our third cruise one was on Royal Caribbean and the other two have been on Carnival. I think personally for me and my husband Carnival beats hands down. They get you so involved with everything that is going on. The ship we took was the Triumph and it was huge and gorgeous. I was so impressed. We had a balcony cabin on the panorama deck which is right up there on top we had cabin number 1019. We loved the balcony we sat out on it everynight and even left our door open at night just so we could enjoy the sound of the ocean.
The food on the ship was plentiful. If you went on this ship and left hungry there is something wrong with you. There is something to eat twenty-four hours a day and I mean good food not just sandwiches. They have a twenty-four hour pizza bar and room service and they have a Hong Kong Noodle Factory which was excellent. On our first formal night we had lobster tails and prime rib ordered two entrees that night the lobster was very fresh and very good.
The shows on the ship were out of this world they were just like Las Vegas shows. The cruise director John Heald was out of this world too he could be a stand up comedian he had everyone laughing in the aisles.
The casino was the biggest that I have ever seen on a ship and loads of five cent games too. You could spend hours in there. The drinks at the bars and lounges are very good not watered down they averaged about almost 4.50 including gratuity for a mixed drink.
I just can't say enough good about this ship and the crew it was wonderful and I will remember this trip forever. I can't wait to go again.
I will be glad to answer anyones questions who might be going on the ship soon. Feel free to e-mail me at DebaFra@aol.com
