did anyone experience the overcrowded and overbooked disaster on the 12/18 carnival triumph. the worst trip we ever took - (5) crusies - poor service, poor teenage supervision, poor everything - terrible line, got to eat pizza once. ice cream machine was a virtual toy for the teenagers - they just kept running the ice cream out onto the floor, till it was empty. they were running the halls, banging on everyones cabin doors.
and the security did absolutely nothing about it. Where were the parents? Having a ball for themselves, while we all suffered. I will never ever cruise with carnival again.
This was my second carnival trip and they can't compare with the others. I think the idea of tipping up front is great, less confusion for the cruisers, however, it allowed the staff to not care one bit about their service. They didn't have to worry about their tips.
Did not realize that week the students were off from school, although I think half of them were taken out of school for the vacation.
The stop in Puerto Rico was ridiculous - 5pm to midnight - couldn't book any tours because everything is closed at that hour - why stop there at all?
Had it not been for the gorgeous weather there would have been 4 more missing people overboard for sure.
