Default Info on the Triumph

Hi,
I am looking for any good info on the Triumph. Are there any restaurants that you pay to eat in?? Where is the best pool for adults to hang out at? What are the shows that we shouldn't miss? Are there game shows everyday? Any info would be helpful.
Thanks a lot.
Mary R.

Mary, The Triumph Class does not have a specialty dining room. The pools are located on the Lido and Panorama decks and it seems that the adults like the pool in the very aft of the Lido deck. They are of course in all pools but few kids seem to frequent the aft one. We are the types that attend all the shows each evening especially the production shows and the guest talent show. You will also have comedians, jugglers, magicians, etc depending on who is booked for that week. Some will also have a midnight 'adult' show which is often fun so long as you are not easily offended as it is definately adult rated. There are game shows, bingo, dance classes most of the time in thse showlounge etc as well as kareokie (sp), in addition to games by the pool during sea days. Check your Carnival Capers newspaper each night to find out what is scheduled for the next day. Many people keep a copy with them at all times just to keep track of the many activities.
Jim

Hi Mary,

I went on the Triumph last September. All the shows were good so try to catch them all if you can. The ones which stood out in my mind was the "Wonderful World" show and the magic show performed by "Kevin & Caruso".

As for the game shows, I remember we played "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". There may have been others but that was the only one we played so I that's all I can tell you about. As other have mentioned above, there is no specialty restaurant.

I see that someone mentioned the "Kevin & Caruso" show, it was great, and I loved it! The only thing that upset me was they were selling cd's of the music used in the show at the end of the show, and well, they didn't mention that it is only 30 second clips from each song. I was really disappointed when I got back and that is all it was. I just thought they should have mentioned that. They were a great show to see!!!!!!

Thanks for all of the info. I didn't think there was a specialty restaurant which is just find, but wanted to know for sure. We are leaving on 4/23 and that date can't get here soon enough.

I hope I didn't sound like I don't like kids, because I do, but sometimes its nice to have a little quiet time by the pool.

It sounds like everything about the ship will be great and I'm sure that we will try and see all of the shows, including the late night.

Thanks again and have fun whenever your ship sails.

My boyfriend and I did the Triumph last September and had a great time. Even though our 7 day E. Caribbean was changed to a 5 day W. Caribbean due to Hurrican Jeanne. We met Wee Jimmy in person, and even sat with him during a few of the shows. He is a riot and a great Assistant CD. We went to the comedy shows, the Vegas style show and the guest talent show. They were all pretty good. We went to the disco one night, but most of the ships employees were in there, and it seemed really packed. So we left and went to another show room and heard the live band. I don't remember their name, but they were pretty good. We ate dinner in the dinning room and breakfast (if we got up) and lunch at the buffet. Never had a problem with huge lines. Hope you have a great time.

Erin,

Did you also get your picture taken with the snake? I did! I loved that show too. I'm going on Carnival Destiny next year and I hope the shows will be as good as they were on the Triumph.

did a back to back on the Trimuph in 2001 and totally loved every minute of it. Only complaint - even 2 weeks is not long enough on a cruise. Enjoy the ship, she is wonderful. Katie
