Cruise with 15 yr. old son

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall the cruise was fun. The food was average. The ship could use some updates and although you could see people constantly cleaning  the ship always seemed a little dirty. The big issue that I had was that in the areas that kid/teens hung out (like the basketball court and mini-golf) there was no attendants. There were kids throwing golf balls from the lower deck which had the mini golf up to the deck where the basketball court was. My son got hit in the mouth and started bleeding. Kids were also throwing the balls and clubs off the deck into the water and using clubs to smash cups. Carnival really needs to have 1 to 2 people monitoring these decks at all times before someone really gets hurt.

Carnival triumph, Cozumel and Progresso

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The cuise ship overall was great, but I there are a couple of things you should know before you book a cruise on the triump. 1) The ship is old and in need of repair. So if your looking for the stylish digs, you should look into another ship, but if a little wear and tear doesn't bother you than this is the ship for you. 2) The rooms have no refrigerators in them, however if you bring a small cooler you can get all the ice you need to keep things nice and cool Happy. 3)  As far as destinations, I preferred Progresso over cozumel. Cozumel is very beautiful but pricey. Progresso is a up and coming tourist attraction, but is more affordable. Lastly I just want to say the price of the cruise was the best for a 5 day crusie, and well worth it! I would consider taking this cruise again.

Good time

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a good time. Cabin was very nice and clean. Cabin stewart was fantastic, friendly and helpful. Ship is an older one and it showed in decor and sometimes smells. Most staff members were very nice however unlike our last cruise some were not and most were not nearly as attentive. Still overall good times. Shows were really good. Food average, room service food and staff above average. Trips off the ship were amazing.

loved the experience -- needed more options

I loved the locations we went to see. I absolutely enjoyed all of the Carnival staff who treated my family and me like royalty. Struggled with the long food lines. Not a lot of other options other than the buffet - and wasn't able to find the fine dining or steakhouse restaurant. I would go again, but would pick a bigger ship with more options for dining, pools, and at least an adults only getaway -- too many kids -- too many kids!

The service on this ship was outstanding.  So very friendly and willing to please everyone.  The service staff always had a smile and a welcome.  This was the best of the trip.  I also thoroughly enjoyed the excursion on Progresso to Mi Casa Es Su Casa.  I would gladly take this excursion again and recommend to others.

We could not have had a better time on this cruise.  Our steward and waiters made it the best experience.  Everyone was so nice and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.  We will definitely be cruising again.

Pack a small bag as a carry on with swim suits, sun block, motion medicine and any other essentials as your bags may not get to your room until nearly 6pm!! We did this, but other families in our group did not and their kids could not swim until 6pm because their swim suits were in their suit cases.

Guys Burger is the best quick food grab.

Did you eat to much & you hate the gym... Walk that track on the upper deck. There is something special about walking in the strong winds off the sea. The view will almost make you forget how many laps you've done. Before you know it your 2 mile work turns into 3 miles. Just enjoy!
