Hope this helps the cruisers looking for info.
Wife and I just got off the Triumph on the 13th of March. We did a back to back beginning on March 1st. (5 days to Mexico and 7 days to Key west and Bahamas) This was our 8th and 9th cruise on Carnival and lets just say things counldn't have been any better. We were fortunate to have the same cabin for both cruises (Balcony on the Panorama Deck). The ship was in great shape as most of Carnivals ships are. This was our 1st cruise on the Triumph, but will not be the last. We really enjoyed the ship and everything else during the cruises. The service (dining, stateroom, room service, pursers desk, etc.) was some of the best we've experienced on any cruise. The shows in the Rome lounge were top notch along with the comedians and all other entertainment aboard the ship. The food in the dining room was even better than our last cruise. Actually due to a big local group onboard the 2nd cruise, we had a different dining staff and time for our second cruise. We checked with the Maitre D at the start of the second cruise and agreed to a time change just so we could be served by Mauro & Cynthia in the Paris Dining room for all 12 nights. The 4 piece band that played mostly in the Venecia lounge (The Music Hightlights Band) was the best we've ever heard on a cruise. We did get to know them pretty well after 2 cruises. They did tell us that they would be transferring to another ship soon, but couldn't say when. As for everything else the cruises were terriffic. The weather was a little cool returning to New Orleans on the 13th but not cold. We didn't get to New Orleans until about 9:00 AM due to leaving a little late from Nassau, Bahamas. Then customs seemed to be slowing things down even more. We didn't get off the ship until 2:30 PM, all that meant was we actually got to eat another Lido deck lunch before getting off. Rick
