Back from my cruise on Carnival Triumph to St. Johns, Canada

I set sail from New York on Thursday evening for my four day cruise to Canada on the Carnival Triumph.

I have been cruising for quite some time, and although I had not been on Carnival for a few years, the price was right so my family and I decided to go for it.

I won't bore you with details and/or complaints, but it reminded me why I stopped cruising with Carnival to begin with. After the past few years on Princess and NCL(Norwegian) I was spoiled.

Everything from inattentive gift shop clerks to unmotivated casino personnel and the hot water I had to pour for myself and my table mates at a high tea service made this a cruise with lots of service problems.

Not the way that your cruising experience is supposed to be like; especially in this day of decreasing vacation dollars and increased competition in the vacation industry.

Carnival, are you listening?
