Truly a FUN vacation!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date: Aug 02, 2014

We had a great time.  We have been to Progresso and Cozumel before so we just stayed on the ship, laid out by the pool, watched and listened to great concerts on the big screen and had great bar service as they always knew when to come by.

 

Casino was nice too.  They have an electronic black jack table with lower minimums then the dealer tables and they were just as fun.  My mom won second place in the slots tournament.  

 

Guy's burger stand was awesome!  Had burgers 3 times!  This is a great smaller ship with plenty to do.  Highly recommend for someone looking for their first cruise experience.  Or for experienced cruisers just looking for a inexpensive get-a-way.  Best value for the best price in my opinion.

Cleanest, comfortablest beds and state room, ever  Too bad hotels dont follow suit.  Exc service, reasonable price for cruise.  Good enterainment and things to do onboard,  Great crew, most friendly and helpful people ever.  Gracious Captain.  What more can I say! We had 4 women together in one state room, we wanted to be toghter, dreaded being cramped up in state room, no , pleasanty surprised to see stateroom.  We did fine and got to enjoy being together..mom and two dau/s and moms sister.  Enjpuyed shour excursion very much.

Just do it already, you'll have fun. Choose snorkeling and fun in Cozumel and history and fun in Progreso. With only two days sailing time, you'll end your trip realizing there was so much more you COULD have done! You choose how busy you want to be the entire time. Whether relaxing all day poolside or taking part in activities nonstop, there's always more you could be doing. And be prepared for ALL the staff to address you by name and to remember you. Whether it's knowing your drinks the second or third time you order, or remembering what you like to eat and suggesting other things to try. Don't miss the dining experience with Mr. V, the Maitre D for a truly enjoyable experience.

A Good Balance of Time On and Off the Ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Triumph | Sail Date: Nov 03, 2014

We have had cruises where there was time in port for ever day other than travelling to and from the home port.  This cruise provided time on board ship to experience the amenities and activities available and also experience some fantastic shore excursions.  If you are going to Progreso, I strongly recommend the Cenote Snorkeling trip.  You don't need to snorkel to enjoy it and the bicycling portion is not terribly strenuous.  I am a 54 year old, not terribly fit woman and I managed it just fine.  I also enjoyed the Twister Boat to Isle de Pasion, in Cozumel but it would have been nice to have more time there.

I went on this five day cruise with my sister and oldest daughter. It was their first time cruising but not mine. I have cruised with Royal Caribbean and Norwegian previously and I can honestly say that the service and entertainment on the Carnival Triumph was better than any other cruise I have taken before. Yes the ship is a bit old but nevertheless the staff was great, they were always cleaning and kept the ship  in top condition. Dinner in the main dining room was fabulous! The menu had so many choices to choose from and they had the best entertainment every night during dinner. So it was a dinner and show! I have already booked another cruise for this upcoming March with the whole family and I can't wait!

Popular tips for Carnival Triumph.


Guys Burger is the best quick food grab.

Bring a big cup to take advantage of the free water, tea and lemonade so that you can take it with you because most of these stations are on the Lido deck.

Every day I would go to the sandwich bar and get smoked salmon without the bagel. I love smoked salmon.
