Too bad we'll just miss you Jim, we are a family of 3 going on the Triumph Dec. 3rd, returning on the 10th! This will be our 5th Carnival cruise, and I know the cabins well. 5 in a room will be tight, but do-able. The fact is, you really don't spend much time in there, only to shower, dress, and sleep - there's too much else to do all day and night to hang around in your cabin! Have fun!
