Default Carnival Triumph

Can anybody recommend a table for 2 over looking the balcony in the MDR on the Carnival Triumph? I have traditional dining at 6:00. Thanks for any info.

Since there is no balcony to overlook, I'm assuming you're talking about getting a table on the 2nd level of the dining room, so you can overlook the 1st level.

Problem is any recommendation anyone would have would be a moot point, because you cannot reserve tables ahead of time. You won't know where your table is until you check in at the pier and find out your table number. Then when you get onboard, you can go to the dining room to find out where it is. If you'd like to change it, you can ask the Matre'd if it's possible.

However, keep in mind that usually (not always) traditional dining is on the first level and anytime dining is on the second level. So, chances are, you're going to be sitting on the first level.

Of course, things are always subject to change and others who just got off the Triumph may have some new information.

Thank you so much. Thats just what I wanted to know. You see on the Sunshine you can reserve a table. Tradiitional is on the 2nd level on that ship. So I see that the Triumph is a different set up. Thanks for the info.....

As I said, I could be wrong, but this was the situation on our last Carnival cruise and it may have changed.

But if you really want the upper level and that happens to be anytime dining, you can always have your agent change you to anytime dining and then when you get on the ship, talk to the Matre'd and make a reservation for a specific table every night at the same time. Bascially, the same thing as traditional dining.

Not talking about any of the restaurants - talking about the dining room.

The Triumph is a little different in that it has two dining rooms - one midship and one aft. Because of that, it's quite possible one dining room is assigned traditional dining and the other one is assigned for anytime dining.

Hopefully, someone with more firsthand knowledge of the Triumph can chime in and provide more specific information.
