Getting ready to do my 10th cruise (First Platinum) on Carnival in October. Other than a little more noise on Carnival than other ships I have had no problems. Have done Triumph 3 times with no problems. They are just so convienient out of Galveston. Have 45+ with RCCL. I am not that much into destination when doing the Caribbean, just love to cruise and that atmosphere. Cruising is just what you make it. There are *****ers and gripers on every cruise and there are some who just go with the flow and try to enjoy. Now if the ship breaks down that is different, but in general all is usually good.
