My husband and I are first time cruisers and would like to ask SOMEONE some Questions?
If you don't mind . WE are going on Feb.14, 2004 Triumph .
We booked this room ( 8428 ) on the port side .
9A - Ocean Stateroom - Deluxe Private Balcony
we are celebrating our 4th Wedding anniversary.
Questions ????
HAS anyone been in this room ?

1. Is theTriumph a beautiful ship ?
2. Did you experience sea sickness ?
3. Is tipping added to your bill or do you pay the last night with envelopes ?
4. Is the food good ?
5. are the stateroom clean ?
6. Did anyone have a balcony room ?
7. Anyone been on the port side of the ship ?
8. Did Anyone get the Fountain Fun Card (unlimited soft drinks) ?
p.s. any other information that might be helpful.

you will love I repeat love your balconey room the balcony is about 6 ft or more wide and about twenty feet long you could have a party of about 20 people on it the room is not real large but god for 2 or 3 people the bed is paced in a catty corner positsition, I went and looked at that room befor we disembarked on our ship because I wanted to see what the room and balcony was all about, so you will be quite pleased, soda cards I vbelieve are over rated unless you live on soda, they run 19.00 each I believe and they have orange juice,apple juice, cranberry juice, Ice tea, milk and coffee, lemonade and hot tea available at no charge and they do have vending machines on each deck for can soda, we were on portside of ship which is neat because you can watch everyone stagger back to the ship lololol. tipps ar added to your folio its 10.00 per day and you recieve an envelope on the last night for the matrie'de we tipped him 10.00 per person in our cabin, you have the option of tipping directly if you wish you just have to go to pursers desk and request to have the gratudies taken off your bill, we prefer to personally tip so I bring extra envelopes and have them remove tips from my folio (bill). it really does not matter we just wanted extra money on our credit cards available if we needed it and paid all tips in cash$$$$ the food is really good you must also try room service, an do not beafraid to order double orders at the dinning room like lobster and the primrib together the skys the limit they also have a kids menu available if you just want Hamburgers that nite if nothing on the menu strikes your fancy just ask for it, another thing if you are not happy with your dining seating, the first nite tell matrie
'de and he will change table for you, without question, you will experience a lot of wind on back of ship and some vibration but once you are asleep you will hear nothing depending on your noise thresh hold sea sickness is nothing we experience the last coulpe of cruise the pursers desk has plenty dramamine if you need it but I doubt if you will, happy cruz'n Fran.......... celebration 2000

You definitely want a fountain card if you drink soda. Its the best way to go.

The iced tea is awful (mix) and the water is not the best either. So soda cards are vital, in my view.

carnival has real tea for Icetea and there is also lemonade if you want to mix it you can purchase sodas in machines on every deck where the Ice machines are if you need a soda I feel the soda cars are way over priced unless you are a soda addict and need a soda in your hands 24/7 ,you can purchase your cans of soda and bring them on board pack a six pack in everyones lugguge if you don't want to spend 1.50 on the can. the soda card is for only one person 22.00 a piece. beer on board was 3.94 a can included grat. and buckets of 4 beers were 13.63 with grat. you save about 75 cents on bucket, they also have happy hours through out the ship and drinks are almost 1 dollar to 2 dollars cheaper at happy hours
