Episode: Carnival Triumph Western Caribbean + Cruise News

Published

on

We get a review of Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Triumph on a five-night western Caribbean cruise. Not only was this his first time on Carnival, but it was his first cruise ever. The review gives a neat perspective from someone who experienced the world of cruising for the very first time.

Sherry Kennedy has cruise news on:

  • New details on Norwegian Bliss
  • Royal Caribbean names upcoming ship – details?
  • Carnival ship missed a port because of propulsion issues – what happened?
  • The Bahamas wants cruisers to spend more money.
  • A class action cruise lawsuit is in the works – but this lawsuit isn’t against the cruise lines.
Listener questions: 
  • Is it possible to share a wifi package among friends? The packages on NCL are pretty pricey. – Diane from Fargo
  • How does the disembarkation process work with getting back to the airport? Before cruise day we are arriving a day early and catching a hotel shuttle to the port. Getting back to the airport is throwing us off. – Heather from Seattle
