Just back. Triumph looked and rode great. The outdoor TV Screen was new to this ship and working fine. The new Production Show "Big Easy" was fabulous.
The band marched down the aisles and if you like New Orleans music you will like this. A couple of spooky parts that just may creep out your kids, with the VooDoo stuff but all in all a show well put together.
The recast Magic Show Kevin and Caruso was really WOW, and the burlesque version was better. (did you know that Lumpy the 6 ft boa lives on board all the time
and sometimes is let loose in the empty theater? If the doors are closed don't enter)
Main dinning staff was excellent. We had a Celiac guest with us and they made special wheat free rolls and went to a real effort to let her know what was OK on the menu for her. Since my daughter, the dancer, eats with us they also served fast so she could get to the show in time to prep. Very thoughtful team. We tipped them well.
Rooms were kept spotless, Eugene was very good. Always seemed to be near when I needed him, he had a 6th sence. Tipped him well too.
New system in the casino to put your slot winning on your S&S card. I needed help to figure it out and I got very good help even for the massive $2.50 I had won.
The downsides: No good steak at all in the main dinning room, not even for a fee. Yet my wife and sister thought the food was very good. I missed my NY strip.
Carnival really messed up our ground tranportation but did ultimately get us to the hotels and ship on time.
Great cruise, lots of fun and sun. As usual Grand Cayman and Cozumel were great and Jamaca was horrible.
