I know Carnival Triumph & Victory have connecting cabins, do any of the newer Carnival ships have them? Or the other lines, like RCCL? It is very hard to find them!
We want to go on a12/3/05 cruise and would like our kids to have thier own connected cabin. I also noiticed Triumph and Victory have cabins that will accomodate 5, would they be REALLY crowded? Our kids are 12,9,& 6 so I don't think it will be to much of a bathroom issue with trying to get ready, mostly me!
I would love to hear from anyone who has been on Triumph or Victory lateley, what did you think of the ship???
I have not been on Carnival since 1998, and hope its a little better! That was our 1st cruise aboard the Fantasy.
Thanks for any help!

We stayed in connecting cabins on the Triumph. Loved them. You have two bathrooms and plenty of room. Also allows for privacy. Be aware the cabins are on the lower decks. We are fine with that. We like the quiet of the lower decks but some people don't like it.
Hey Carrie sounds like we're in the same boat!!! Pardon the bad pun.
There's 5 of us also and we've always had one cabin on every Carnival ship we've been on. I must admit that interior cabins are a little more cramped than exterior, so I would consider an exterior and you don't have to worry about bumping into each other constantly.
We did that on the Victory last year and had more than enough room.
By the way if you chose the Victory you won't be disappointed. Fabulous ship. Beautiful, huge and very stable...truly a FUN SHIP!
I hope that Victory has gotten its act together & that you have a better experience than we did last July. At that time, things were very disorganized. The crew didn't seem to know what was going on most of the time, & obviously never had any training in guest relations (ie how to smile, respond to requests, etc.). Disembarkation was like a cattle call- ROUND 'EM UP, HEAD 'EM OUT, RAWHIDE! (I'll bet nobody under 50 will get that reference).
The exception to this was in the main dining room, where we were lucky enough to be seated in Zelika's station, all the way astern. She was excellent.
The Connecting staterooms are a great thing to have and you can still listen to what the people are saying next to you. I have stayed with my parents on the TRIUMPH and it was OK but i would suggest the connecting rooms that way it wont be so tight and crowded. If your family is really loving and can stand each other then it will be ok. Bon Voage. btw RCCL SUCKS!!!!!
Live Life, Love Life, and make it Peaceful!
Take a cruise and youll have the ulimate escape.
Carnival till the day I Die arrrgh!
2 years ago we had 5 people in 1 room on the carnival Inspiration ( Outside cabin). Me, my husband and 3 kids 15,13,11. It was a little crowded but we really saved money. Last year we had 2 cabins. We put the 2 teen girls across the hall. That was nice also with 2 bathrooms. However if we could have we would have all gone in 1 room again. maybe.. My kids are now 17,15 and 13. If they were 12, 9 and 6 I would go for the 5 in a cabin again. No problem.
